Holy Quran on Imam Mahdi

The Ahmadiyya Gazette, March 1997

"He it is Who has sent His Messenger with the guidance and the Religion of truth, that He May cause it to prevail over all religions, even if those who associate partners with God hate it." (61:10)

In the Qartabi Commentary it is stated: The predominance of the True Religion will be in the time of the Messiah. The time will come that there will be no religion left in the world except Islam.

In the Qami Commentary, the explanation of this verse is thus: The True Religion will prevail over all other religions in the time of the Imam of the Last Days. He will fill the earth with justice while the earth would have been full of injustice and violence before his advent. The True Law (Islamic Law) will be enforced only after his advent.

"And among others from among them who have not yet joined them. He is the Mighty, the Wise." (62:4)

In the Qarbati Commentary, the explanation of this verse is in the form of a Hadith quoted there. This Hadith is as follows: "Abu Huraira relates that people were sitting around the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of God be upon him, when Surah Jummah was revealed. When Huzoor recited the verse quoted above, a person enquired the Holy Prophet who those people would be?

He repeated this question two or three times. Hazrat Salman the Persian was also sitting in the audience. The Holy Prophet put his hand on the shoulder of Salman the Persian and said: "If faith would go up to the Plaides even then people from the among Persians will certainly bring to back to earth." In some versions of the above Hadith, the words "a man from the Persians" is related, instead of "people from among the Persians.
