Muslim Nations Celebrate Birth of The Mahdi, Say He Brings “Hope”

Many Muslims across the globe celebrated the eve of the 15th of Sha’ban, known as the Laylatul Barat (the night of destiny), and the birth of the Awaited Savior and the final descendent of the Prophet Muhammad, The Mahdi. 

According to Islamic beliefs, the Mahdi will come alongside Jesus in a quest to fight against evil, injustice and tyranny. 

Muslims celebrate this festive occasion by distributing sweets, congratulating one another, fasting, and praying together.

According to both Shiite and Sunni scriptures, the awaited Mahdi will reappear to form a universal government, and is from the progeny of Fatimah (sa), the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad (S). 

The Holy shrines in Iraq, Syria, and Iran alongside several Islamic centers in both Islamic and non-Islamic countries are celebrating the birth anniversary of Imam Mahdi. 

In a recent statement, Iran’s supreme leader, the Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, referred to the celebration of the 15th of Sha’ban, referring to the “issue of raising hope on this birthday and for the future, where humanity is waiting as a result of this birthday. This is a source of hope.”

Several sources on the Mahdi reveal that he will restore the religious purity of Islam, bringing an end to all injustice. Almost all Abrahamic religions include belief in a coming Savior, who will bring an end to the oppression around the world, further uniting people globally in anticipation of the man who will save the world.
