Darul Iftah of Jamia Binoria was asked what’s the Islamic opinion about Imam Mehdi? Is he mentioned in the quran? If not then why do we believe in his coming?
Mufti answered that Quran mentions the major signs which will occur before the end of the world but it does not mentions all signs of end times, the other are mentioned in hadith and sayings of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh).
He clarified that even the proper method of namaz and Hajj are explained in hadith and not in quran, so those matters which are not mentioned in Quran doesn’t mean they are not Islamic.
Islamic Shariah consists of Quran, Sunnah and the consensus of companions of prophet. And there are many ahadith in which coming of Imam Mehdi is prophesized, we also know that sahaba believed in the coming of Imam Mehdi so we should not be confused about a matter which is explained in hadith.
