The Leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky delivered a lengthy speech on Imam Mahdi(AJ) during 15th Sha’aban celebration which took place at Husainiyyah Baqiyyatullah on Tuesday.

Tenths of thousands attended the gathering. 

After normal salutation Sheikh Zakzaky congratulated the gathering on the birthday commemoration of Imam Mahdi (AJ) which occured on 15th of Sha’ban 255 AH. 

In his speech the sheikh said its duty upon followers of Ahlulbyt (AS) to teach and inform others about the Imam; especially teaching a people who find it difficult to really know the Imam because of their lack of true knowledge of the root i.e the holy Prophet(SAWA). He added that the knowledge of the Imam started by knowing the Prophet first as the root. Moreover, the Prophet can only be known through a sound knowledge of Allah, the Sheikh explained. 

Thus, he said. those with wrong belief about Allah- ascribing underserved attributes to him , can not understand the prophet and by extension can not know the 12 successors of the Prophet, Imam Mahdi(AJ) inclusive. 

Sheikh debunked all the wrong notions ascribed to the Prophet which he said resulted from lack of sound knowledge of Allah. 

He added that the holy prophet has 12 successors, Imam Mahdi being the last of the 12.
