The contents of this post are not for the spiritually faint of heart.
I won’t take much time here to detail who and what the Imam Mahdi is, as it is covered elsewhere on this blog. To American Christians, please reference the term “Son of Perdition” or “Man of Sin“. I am posting several videos that I have known about for some time. It seems appropriate to post these now, so that other Christians can help keep the watch. The watchcare of the Holy Spirit will be with Christian readers. readers should also see http://mahdiwatch.org and follow Tim’s research.
Below is the relevant excerpt from his blog where the auric field of the possible manifestation of the Imam Mahdo is discussed. Compare the descriptions to the videos posted at the end. Feel free to share this post with other Christians who should be informed of the research.

The Quasi-Mahdi from Kashmir
One of the commentators at the Islamic online think-tank Grande Strategy claims to have seen the Mahdi, or at least a Mahdi “prototype,” in his recent post “To the Unknown Mujahid, May We Never Forget You.” This near-Mahdi experience was alleged to have happened back in 2001, right after the U.S. invasion of Taliban-ruled Afghanistan. The commentator was in the Faisal Masjid (presumably the huge Faisal Mosque in Islamabad, Pakistan) “doing special war prayers for the Taliban in Afghanistan when “at one point, a CIA operative showed up, pretending to be Italian” (and who must have been at least a station chief, if not the CIA director himself, because “one day, we did not have those prayers and the next day we found out that it was because the CIA requested that we don’t pray against them.”) However, he and his brethren soon defied the CIA directive and returned to war prayers (in a religion of peace?); furthermore, between sessions of invoking Allah’s wrath upon the infidel Americans, they soon noticed something striking about the chap teaching Arabic classes in the mosque:
This particular class was being taught by a man, the like of whom I had never seen before, nor since have ever seen again. When you reach a certain level of spiritual enlightenment…sometimes you can “see” or “feel”… the “noor” or “aura” or “spiritual light” of another… This man did not have a glow – it was like a 1000 watt halogen lamp…. I checked myself by discretely asking a few other brothers… and they too confirmed. [H]e was tall, bearded wore a military camo jacket and in all his manners was as if he had walked out of the 1st century Hijri. He spoke English well enough that you could tell he was well-educated and belonged to a noble family. He was from Kashmir…. Some close relatives of his were also senior officers in the Pakistan Army. He was obviously a mujahid, although… one that was fighting against India and in Kashmir and had nothing to do with the Afghanistan war…. Your average jihadi does not have this noor. Some even have a black aura, i.e. they are doing something very wrong. This man was special in a very real way but when you try to describe why, you are found wanting. I knew his name then, but… I can’t remember it now…. I later found out that he was taken by the Americans…. I have no idea… if he is dead in a ditch or in Guantanamo bay or some place worse. I would like to put this in the record that if we ever manage to establish an Islamic state insh’Allah, it should be a top priority to have this man released insh’Allah….Why? Because I believe…that if he is not the Mahdi himself or one of his men, at the least he is the precursor to the kind of men that would make up the army of the Mahdi. Or for those who do not believe in the Mahdi, he is the category of men that can save us from our present circumstances. A prototype to our success…. Disclaimer: I don’t want to claim that he is the Mahdi.
As to the reasons for this posting, the anonymous Grande Strategist says this is “information that could be useful for the Muslim world” which could “be lost forever if something happens to me”—although “not intending this as a farewell address, I fully intend to live long…and see the tables turn [sic]….”
1) “Grande Strategy” appears to be a Pakistani, and most likely Sunni, forum (although it is registered in Bellevue, Washington). Once again, the lingering conventional wisdom (both scholarly and popular) that only Twelver Shi`is believe in a coming Mahdi is demonstrated to be wrong.
3) A Kashmiri Mahdi or mujaddid (“renewer” of Islam) might be problematic, because several hadiths state that the Mahdi must be an Arab, like Islam’s founder, Muhammad. (This was one of my criticisms of the otherwise-entertaining fiction book from 1999 by Margo Dockendorf, The Mahdi: A Millennium Thriller—she has the Mahdi coming from India.)2) The purveyors of this site appear to be educated, articulate chaps—so the prejudic e (again, both scholarly and popular) that only ignorant fellahin (“peasants”) believe in such an eschatological figure is demonstrably false.
4) The Mahdist “glow” or “aura” attributed to this unknown Mahdist mujahid sounds like that claimed by Mahmud Ahmadinejad in his initial U.N. speech in 2005. Sunni hadiths about the Mahdi do not predict such a phenomenon—but representations of the Shi`i imams regularly portray them thusly. And, interestingly enough, this puts the allegations that Ahmadinejad may think that he is the Mahdi in a whole new light.
5) One has to wonder just how powerful the Islamic deity is if his “rightly-guided one”—or even an epigone thereof—can be taken prisoner by an infidel Christian power. Again, the thesis that the U.S. invaded Iraq to gainsay the Mahdi’s coming-out party has been advanced before, by both Ahmadinejad and Muqtada al-Sadr. But does it not occur to these chaps that such a claim simply make Allah look impotent? On the other hand, perhaps the Marines at Gitmo have been briefed that the Mahdi is under their care; this might at least explain why American military guards, most of whom are Christian, have been ordered to “revere” the Qur’an there.
6) This Grande Strategist wants to bring back the caliphate (as he, or someone on that site, has advocated at length previously)—and thinks this quasi-mahdi may be just the chap to head it up, or at least to help build it.
7) The author carefully avoids a categorical claim that he saw the Mahdi in Islamabad—but he comes very, very close to doing so. And his willingness to do so now, some eight years later, another bit in the growing pile of evidence that even educated, Sunni Muslims have convinced themselves that the plight of the ummah is so dire that only the Mahdi can save it. This will become an increasingly problematic factor in global geopolitics as the 21st century advances, especially as 2076 AD (1500 AH) appoaches, since Mahdist expectations increase at the turn of every Islamic century.
