Description from the publisher:
Certain scholarly groups deviated regarding this issue; they have gone to extremes and now deny the future appearance of the Mahdi altogether, rejecting many authentic Ahadith. Conversely, other intellectuals have taken another radical view and exaggerated their confirmation of the Mahdi’s appearance, approving of all the fabricated Ahadith about him.
As for the general population, they are largely in a state of confusion regarding this matter. Some accepts the authentic traditions, while others abject to them. This bewilderment was widely spread thought the articles of newspapers and books which were published on this subject. Indeed, had people with less knowledge been silent there would have been less controversy and uncertainty in this matter.
