Janabe Hakima Testifies to the Birth of Imam Mahdi (as)

Tomb of Janabe Hakima at Samarrah, Iraq

This report is mentioned in Beharul Anwar volume 51, chapter 1, tradition 14. Janabe Hakima Khatoon (sa) is the daughter of Imam Taqi (as), the sister of Imam Naqi (as). She is buried in Samarrah next to the graves of the 10th and 11th Imam and Janabe Narjis Khatoon (sa).

Apart from establishing the circumstances for the birth of Imam Mahdi (as), this narration also brings forth several truths regarding the Imamate of Imam Hasan (as) and Imam Husain (as), the superiority which Allah has granted to Aimmah (sa) and also the fact that Imam Mahdi (as) has the same excellences of the knowledge of the unseen, even at his young age which are a proof for his Imamate.

Ibne Idris has narrated from his father from Mohammed bin Ismail from Mohammed bin Ibrahim Kufi from Mohammed bin Abdullah Mutahhari that he said:

“I went to see Hakima Khatoon after the demise of Imam Hasan Askari (as) to ask her about the Hujjah and the confusion in which people had split many ways. She said to me, “Sit down.” I sat down and she said: “O Mohammed, verily Allah, the Exalted, does not leave the earth without a Divine Proof, be he a speaking one or a silent one. He has not put it in two brothers after Hasan and Husain, as a token of distinction for Hasan and Husain and to mark their superiority, lest there will be their peer on earth. However, Allah, the Exalted, gave excellence to the progeny of Husain over the progeny of Hasan, as He gave excellence to the progeny of Harun over the progeny of Musa, though Musa was Divine Proof over Harun. And this excellence is for his progeny until Judgment Day.

“There must be a trial for the Ummah,” said she, “in which falsifiers will fall in doubts, and in which verifiers will find salvation, lest people will have an argument against Allah after the apostles. This trial has occurred after the demise of Imam Hasan Askari (as).” (more…)
