Abu Sa'id al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said,
"The Mahdi will be of my stock and will have a broad forehead
and a hooked nose. He will fill the earth with equity and justice
as it was previously filled with oppression and tyranny, and he
will rule for seven years." ---(Abu Dawud)
Part of Allah's justice and wisdom is that near the end of time He will send a man to restore justice in the earth and to confront the Dajjal. This will be the Mahdi.
One aspect of Allah's bounty is that before Imam Mahdi, 'alayhi salaam, appears there will appear certain clear signs. He will have certain traits and unique characteristics which do not exist in anyone else. True Muslims will recognise them and not be deceived by false claimants.
This book presents the evidence in the Qur'an and the Sunna for the truth of Imam Mahdi, 'alayhi salaam, and mentions the signs which will precede him.
