Is it possible to see Imam Mahdi (AJ)

At the end of the “Tawghiat of the Imam of Time” book, there is a phrase that is noteworthy. “In the future, some of the followers of the “Ahl-Al-Bayt” claim that we have seen Imam Mahdi (AJ). Anyone who claims that he/she saw The Imam of Time before Sufyan’s departure and heavenly voice is a liar. There has no power except with God Almighty“.

This was one of the last orders of Imam Mahdi (AJ). The last part is very important. He said that there are many people who claim to see him. There are different interpretations for this Hadith. We have some great and truthful Shia scholars such as “Sayyid Ibn Tawus” and “Sayyid Bahr al-Ulum” who have visited Imam Mahdi (AJ). Are they liars too?

Some interpreters said that seeing in the above tradition means that someone says that he saw the Imam in a specific place or city (For example, Medina). Another meaning of seeing is that someone claims, “I see the Imam always or whenever I want”.

In any case, The Imam has closed the way of observation. So that no one can claim representation. Let no one come and say that I have brought you a message from the Imam of Time.

There are many signs of the emergence (advent) of Imam al-Asr (Imam Mahdi (AJ)) in the narrations, such as “the murder of an Innocent person (Nafs az-Zakia)”, the “Sufyani departure”, “Yamani departure”, “the falling in Baida” (Khasf Baida), and a Heavenly loud voice” (Sayheh Asemani). What is the Heavenly voice? There are some traditions from Shia and Sunni scholars which says, “At the departure of Imam Mahdi (AJ), all the people of the world hear the loud voice from sky that introduces the Imam”.

In Imam’s incomplete absence, the Shia followers communicated with the Imam through Four representatives (Nawab Arba’a). In the complete absence of Imam Mahdi (AJ), there is no connection. It is not the case that someone brings a message from the Imam or be his representative. All these stories are false. Deny it from every mouth you hear, because we are in a complete absence and there is no connection between the Imam and the Shia.

If someone visits the Imam privately, it is for himself/herself, and he does not tell anyone. Seeing the Imam in a dream is a different subject and there is nothing wrong with it.
