WASHINGTON - Muqtada al-Sadr summoned one of Shiite Islam's most messianic images when he chose the name Mahdi Army for his militia. The mahdi is believed to be the successor to Muhammad who will return to save the world.
The word isn't mentioned in the Quran or in the collected sayings attributed to Muhammad, known as the hadiths. But the term is common to both Sunni and Shiite branches of Islam as the term for a leader who will bring righteousness to the world.
The title means "the divinely guided one" but refers to differing concepts, depending on the believer. Some Muslims believe the mahdi will come in conjunction with the second coming of Jesus.

It would've been nice if the reporter had explained that "return to save the world" means killing or converting every infidel on the planet, until the entire Earth is under Shar'ia law.

And understand that Mohammed's prophecies in the Hadith guarantee -- in their minds -- that they will be victorious over "the Dajjal."
"Kill the infidels!"
'Isa also destroys all the Christian churches, breaks all the crosses, berates Christians for believing him a divine person of the Trinity, and berates the Jews for not recognizing him as the messiah. He also kills all the pigs. After the Mahdi has conquered the world, 'Isa dies peacefully and has a big funeral.

Conventional wisdom always sez the opposite.
Ive read your thread and seen my site quoted, and after seeing your webpage and that YOUR version of how youve understood ISLAM and the End days.
Id like to address a few issues, its sad you think that Muslims think the Dajjal is the U.S., no were in the Islamic Text does it say that. Youve also may out that Muslims These Muslims are Fatalistic Called Jabariyyah in Arabic. Which was a strange belief of its own and who ever beliefs in that is NOT a Muslim.
The Terms Mahdi is mentioned is out traditions which is an errorerous that is on the threads.
Most of whats on your webpage is OUT of Context. In light of the Islamic traditions and youve misunderstood it. All I can see from your site is Anti this anti that.
Trying looking into your Bible and what it says that the Anti-Christ will be a Jew, references below.
As for I site it was put up only as references and research purposes for my self and some friends. But it seems to some how be advertise on google. Strange.
As for .killing or converting every infidel on the planet.. that Imam Mahdi will do this just rubbish. Reading this carefully the first is thing that Imam Mahdi will do, is deal with 70,000 So-called Imams who will be misguiding the Muslims, severely!
As for the Militia Nutters Killing everyone, most of the them are the B@st#rd child of the British, like any B@st#rd they are carry some effect of Cursed or damnation on the people, this was done in the form of the Wahabiyyah Movement (saudia arabia) which British gave Birth to Illegally .
Remember Sept 11 they were all Saudis with Wahabiyyah belief, sick Belief which the British were supports of and are. This is what the Mahdi will come for First to destroy if you must know.
As for the Jesuss second coming on Earth (Syria near the Tomb of St John the Baptise or Yahya in Arabic) this will also happen roughly at the same time. Why is all of this going to happen because when Jesus first came people were falling into the Evil sickness of Loving this World too much called Materialistic, and this has happen again. NOW its the Muslims who will be the Dregs of Society being killed and destroyed by each other and others so many Muslims will be killed and until the earth is at a all time low, of Open Sex, Alcohol, Singing dance (in perversion manner) wayward behaviour until people sleep with their Mothers and sisters and kill their own daughters again. Until Riba-Interest will be covering the whole world. The Muslims will be like Sheep on a plate around the be the Evil of the Non-believes Not all Non-believes are bad many have Good Hearts and are Good people.
Anyway all this happens and much more like Earthquakes and Tall buildings being built, when your Hip talks to you- Mobiles phones, when the earth is cover with a spiders web- world W Web Internet know the end is near and that the Deserts land s will be Green. All this can be found in our Islamic traditions on my site as well.
Why is all this trouble going to happen to the Muslims and much more, because they are loosing the plot of being Good Muslims which means not just praying and its rituals but being Nice to man kind also.
Your asking for answering to these Suicide bombers, look to who borne them, they were trained in the U.S and England to start off with.
As for the Shiah Milita they are crazy disjoining people who Ethos is based on Suicide, and for the Wahabiyyah they believe follows us your were kill you whio ever Muslim or non-Muslim, they have a Mu`tazilah Khawarijah belief.
P.S strange all this talk but nobody mentioned the biggest Global terrorist Bushs strategic Policies on Hell bent on Killing the Earth. Why does He address the Green Issue and that the World is Dying. The day after Tomorrow ring any rings. (Deserts land s will be Green) this reference was used here in London on the Preview of the Movie.
This is only a brief reply
This is not intended to offended any one way, other some reflections on ways happening In the world, if I does then I then im sorry.
Yours Muhammad Sajad Ali Qadiri-Noshahi

Note. My site went up before Sept 11 and not before.
I never said that the beliefs I describe are authentic Islamic beliefs. I think I say the opposite. As a non-Muslim, it's not my place to say what is or is not "heretical."
I have said at FR that I do not know Arabic, and have no first-hand knowledge of much of what I write. I accept Prof. David Cook's studies that many of these millennial beliefs are popular. And particularly that some -- I've never said "all" -- radical preachers have taken the allegorical view that the Dajjal is _not_ one individual (Jewish or otherwise), but is a symbol representing all Western culture.
I advocate that this view be marginalized and preached against.
I do not equate millennialism and terrorism. I have no problem with anyone of any religion who sees signs of the End Times.
My concern is when these views are amplified to justify 9/11, dynamite vests, etc.
I'll write more to you when I get back on June 14th.
Well, if the mahdi doesn't get here soon he will be too late to save the Muslims from extinction.
