The concept of AI-Mandi is one of the most controversial and greatly misunderstood topics of Islam, and different sects have proposed radically variant beliefs about him. Most Muslims know little, if anything. about this enigmatic figure. In this series of lectures, the speaker - for the first time in the English language - sheds light on the Prophetic descriptions of Al-Mandi. Basing his talk entirely upon authentic Hadiths and the explanations of reputable scholars of Islam, he explains in great detail the signs of Al-Mandi, the trials and tribulations that shall accompany him, and the intense events that shall take place in his reign, including the descent of Isa ibn Maryam (Jesus). Additionally, he describes some of the claimants rho, throughout Islamic history, falsely professed to be the promised Mandi. The speaker's academic background in both the sciences of Hadith and theology are clearly manifest in this lecture, and his lucid and informative style will appeal to all audiences.
