    Bahais often quote some hadiths in my view way out of place, context, and give it their own meaning.

    They can continue to do that (We are free to do what we want), and even can do it here in this thread, as it's for debate. But like Quran and day of judgment, I will be providing a holistic contextualize each other approach to who the Mahdi is per Shiite hadiths as well I Will comment sometimes on Quran to support this.

    @InvestigateTruth @Trailblazer @TransmutingSoul and others.

    This thread might or might not interest you.

    One of the first issues, I want to post is the position of Ahlulbayt (a) according to sacred prayer of Imam Sajjad (a) as the final Ahlulbayt (a):

    Online source: Sahifa Addenda (duas.org)

    اَللّٰهُمَّ يَامَن
    O Allah, O He who

    خَصَّ مُحَمَّدًا وَآلَهٗ بِالْكَرَامَةِ
    singled out Muhammad and his Household for honour,

    وَ حَبَاهُمْ بِالرِّسَالَةِ
    showed favour toward them with messengerhood,

    وَ خَصَّصْهُمْ بِالْوَسِيْلَةِ
    specified them for the mediation,[347] so

    وَ جَعَلَهُمْ وَرَثَةَ الْاَنْبِيَآءِ
    appointed them the heirs to the prophets,

    وَ خَتَمَ بِهِمُ الْاَوْصِيَآءَ وَ الْاَئِمَّةَ
    sealed with them the executors and the Imams,

    وَ عَلَّمَهُمْ عِلْمَ مَا كَانَ وَ عِلْمَ مَا بَقِيَ
    taught them the knowledge of what has been and what remains to be,

    وَ جَعَلَ أَفْئِدَةً مِنَ النَّاسِ تَهْوِي اِلَيْهِمْ
    and made the hearts of the people incline toward them!

    فَصَلِّ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ الطَّاهِرِيْنَ
    Bless Muhammad and his Household, the pure,

    وَ افْعَلْ بِنَا مَا اَنْتَ أَهْلُهٗ فِي الدِّيْنِ وَ الدُّنْيَا وَ الْآخِرَةِ
    and act toward us with that of which Thou art worthy in religion, in this world, and in the next world!

    اِنَّكَ عَلٰى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ.
    Thou art powerful over everything.[348]

    We will also look at series (this is first hadith I will post naming all Twelve Imams with authentic chains (this one has several authentic chains, so will post this first):

    My father and Muhammad ibn Al-Hassan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Waleed narrated that Sa’d ibn Abdullah and Abdullah ibn Ja’far al-Hemyari quoted on the authority of Abil Khayr Salih ibn Abi Hammad and Al-Hassan ibn Dharif, on the authority of Bakr ibn Salih who narrated the following tradition. Also my father, Muhammad ibn Musa ibn al-Mutawakkil, Muhammad ibn Ali Majiluwayh, Ahmad ibn Ali ibn

    النِّساءِ ما هذِهِ الصَّحِيفَةُ الَّتِي أَراها مَعَك؟ قالَتْ: فِيها أَسْماءُ الأَئِمَّةِ مِنْ وُلْدِي، قُلْتُ لَها:

    قالَ مُصَنِّفُ هذا الْكِتابِ: جاءَ هذا الْحَدِيث هكَذا بِتَسْمِيَةِ القائِمِ‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ، وَالَّذِي أَذْهَبُ إِلَيْهِ النَّهْيُ عَنْ تَسْمِيَتِهِ‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ.

    Ibrahim ibn Hashem, Al-Husayn ibn Ibrahim ibn Tatana and Ahmad ibn Ziyad ibn Ja’far al-Hamadani - may God be pleased with them - narrated that Ali ibn Ibrahim ibn Hashem quoted on the authority of his father, on the authority of Bakr ibn Salih, on the authority of Abdul Rahman ibn Salim, on the authority of Abi Basir, on the authority of Abi Abdullah (as-Sadiq) (a.s.), “My father (a.s.) told Jabir ibn Abdullah Al-Ansari, ‘I have something to do with you in private. When is the most convenient time for you to come so that I may ask you something?’ Jabir replied to him (a.s.), ‘Whenever you please.’ Then my father (a.s.) met him in private and told him, ‘O Jabir! Tell me about the tablet which you saw in the hands of my mother (the Blessed Lady) Fatima - the daughter of God’s Prophet (S), and what my mother told you about what is recorded in it in writing.’ Jabir said, ‘I take God as a witness that I went to see your mother (the Blessed Lady) Fatima during the lifetime of God’s Prophet (S) to congratulate her upon the birth of Al-Husayn (a.s.). Then I saw a green tablet in her hand which I thought to be emeralds. In it there were white writings which were as brilliant as sunshine. I told her, ‘O daughter of God’s Prophet (S)! May my mother and father be your ransom! What is this tablet?’ She (a.s.) replied, ‘This is a tablet which God the Exalted the Sublime has bestowed upon His Messenger (a.s.). In it there are the names of my father, my husband, my two sons, and the names of the Trustees from my progeny. My father (a.s.) gave it to me to make me happy.’ Jabir added, ‘Then your mother (the Blessed Lady) Fatima gave it to me. I read it and wrote down a copy of it.’”

    Then Imam As-Sadiq (a.s.) added, “My father (a.s.) asked, ‘O Jabir! Can you show it to me?’ He said, ‘Yes.’ Then my father accompanied him to Jabir’s house where Jabir brought a sheet made of skin for my father and said, ‘I take God as a witness that this is what I saw written on that tablet, ‘In the Name of God the Beneficent, the Merciful. This is a writing from God the Honored the Wise to Muhammad - His Light, His Messenger and His Veil, and His Reason which has been descended upon him by the Trustworthy Spirit from the Lord of the Two Worlds. O Muhammad! Exalt My Names. Be grateful for My Blessings. Do not deny. Indeed I am God. There are no gods other than Me. I am the Defeater of the Tyrants, the Humiliator of the Oppressors! The Owner of the Religion. Indeed I am God. There are no gods other than Me. I will punish whoever places hopes in others but Me or fears things other than

    وَأَحْمَدَ بْنِ زِيادِ بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ الهَمَذانيُّ - رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ - قالُوا: حَدَّثَنا عَلِىُّ بْنِ إِبراهِيمِ بْنِ هاشِمٍ، عَنْ أَبيهِ، عَنْ بَكْرِ بْنِ صالِحٍ، عَنْ عَبْدُ الرَّحْمنِ بْنِ سالِمٍ، عَنْ أَبي‏بَصِيرٍ، عَنْ أَبي عَبْدِ اللَّه‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ، قالَ: قالَ أَبي‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ لِجابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الأَنْصارِيِّ: إِنَّ لي‏ إِلَيكَ حاجَةً فَمَتى‏ يَخِفُّ عَلَيْكَ أَنْ أَخْلُو بِكَ فَأَسْأَلَكَ عَنْها؟ قالَ لَهُ جابِرٌ: فِي أيُّ الأَوْقاتِ شِئْتَ فَخَلا بِهِ أَبي‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ فَقالَ: يا جابِرُ أَخْبِرْنِي عَنْ اللَّوْحِ الَّذِي رَأَيْتَهُ فِي يَدِ اُمِّي فاطِمَة بِنْتِ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ‏ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَما أَخْبَرَتْكَ بِهِ اُمِّي أَنَّ فِي ذلِكَ اللَّوْحِ مَكْتُوباً؟ قالَ جابِرٌ: أَشْهَدُ بِاللَّهِ إِنِّي دَخَلْتُ عَلَى اُمّكَ فاطِمَة فِي حَياةِ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ‏ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ لِاُهَنِّئَها بِوِلادَةِ الحُسَيْنِ‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ، فَرَأَيْتُ فِي يَدِها لَوْحاً أَخْضَرَ ظَنَنْتُ أَنَّهُ زُمُرُّدٌ، وَرَأَيْتُ فِيهِ كِتاباً أَبْيَضَ شِبْهَ نُورُ الشَّمْسِ، فَقُلْتُ لَها بِأَبِي أَنْتَ وَاُمِّي يا بِنْتَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ‏ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ ما هذا اللَّوْحُ؟ فَقالَتْ: هذا اللَّوْحُ أَهْداهُ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِلى رَسُولِهِ‏ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ فِيهِ اِسْمُ أَبي وَاِسْمُ بَعْلِي وَاِسْمُ ابْنِيَّ، وَأَسْماءُ الأَوْصِياءِ مِنْ وُلْدِي، فَأَعْطانِيهِ أَبي‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ لِيَسُرَّني بِذلِكَ، قالَ جابِرٌ: فَأَعْطَنِيهِ اُمُّكَ فاطِمَةُ، فَقَرَأْتُهُ و انْتَسَخْتُهُ، فَقالَ: أَبي‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ: فَهَلْ لَكَ يا جابِرُ أَنْ تَعْرِضَهُ عَلِيَّ؟ قالَ: نَعَمْ، فَمَشى‏ مَعَهُ أَبي‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ حَتّى‏ انتَهى‏ إِلى مَنْزِلِ جابِر، فَأَخْرَجَ أَبي‏ عَلَيْهِ السَّلامُ صَحِيفَةٌ مِنْ رَقٍّ قالَ جابِرٌ: فَأُشْهِدُ بِاللَّهِ إِنِّي هكَذا رَأَيْتُهُ فِي اللَّوْحِ مَكْتُوباً: بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ هذا كِتابٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ العَزِيزِ الحَكِيمِ لُِمحَمَّدٍ نُورِهِ وَسَفِيرِهِ وَحِجابِهِ وَدَلِيلِهِ نَزَلَ بِهِ الرُّوحُ الأَمِينُ مِنْ عِنْدَ رَبِّ العالَمِينِ، عَظِّمْ يا مُحَمَّدُ أَسْمائِي، وَاشْكُرْ نَعْمائِي وَتَجْحَدْ آلائي، إِنّي أَنَّا اللَّهُ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنَا، قاصِم الجَبَّارِينَ، وَمُذِلُّ الظَّالِمِينَ، وَدَيَّانَ الدِّينِ، إِنّي أَنَا اللَّهُ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنَا، فَمَنْ رَجا غَيْرِ فَضْلِي، أَوْ خــافَ غَيْـرَ عَـذابِي عَـذَّبْتُهُ عَذابـاً لا أَعَـذَّبُ بِهِ أَحَـداً مِـنَ

    My Chastisement in such a way that no one in the Two Worlds has been punished. Thus worship Me alone, and rely only on Me. Whenever I appoint a Prophet and his time ends I appoint a Trustee for him. I have made you superior over the other Prophets, and have made your Trustee (The first Divine Leader) superior over the other Prophet’s Trustees. I have honored you with two lion cubs after him - your two grandsons Al-Hassan and Al-Husayn. I have established Al-Hassan (The second Divine Leader) as the Treasure-Mine of My Knowledge after the expiration of the term of his father. I have established Al-Husayn (The second Divine Leader) as the storehouse of My Revelations. I have honored him with the Martyrdom, and have perfected Prosperity for him. He is the noblest of the martyrs. He holds the highest rank of the martyrs near Me. And I have entrusted him with My Perfect Word, and I have left the Complete Proof near him. I give rewards and chastisements by his kinship - the first of whom is Ali (The fourth Divine Leader)- the Master of the Worshippers and the adornment of the previous Trustees. His son (Muhammad) - the praised one - is like his grandfather. He is Muhammad Al-Baqir - the analyzer of My Knowledge and the Treasure House of My Wisdom. Those who doubt Ja’far will be destroyed. Whoever rejects him has indeed rejected Me. I say the right thing. I highly honor Ja’far (The sixth Divine Leader). I will make him happy regarding his followers, companions and friends. I have appointed Musa (The seventh Divine Leader) after him. After him there will be a short period of dark sedition, although there will not be a breach of Divine Leadership. My Proof will not remain hidden and the Trustees will not suffer. Beware that whoever denies any of them has indeed denied Me. Whoever changes any of the verses of My Book has indeed ascribed lies to Me. Woe be to those who ascribe lies and those who deny! Whoever denies the eighth (Divine Leader Al-Ridha’) after the duration of the Leadership of Musa - My Servant, Friend and Appointed One - is over, has indeed denied all My Trustees. Ali is My Trustee and Helper. He is the one on whose shoulders I will place the burden of Prophethood and grant him power. A haughty wicked fellow (al-Ma’mun) will murder him and bury him in a town that is established by a good servant next to My worst creature. I say the right thing. I will make him happy by his successor after him Muhammad (The ninth Divine Leader) - his son. He is the inheritor of My Knowledge and the Treasure-house of My Wisdom. He is the site of My Secrets and My Proof for My creatures. I

    have established Heaven as his place and have accepted his intercession on behalf of seventy members of his family who have all become sure to burn in the Fire. And I will end the affairs of his son Ali (The tenth Divine Leader) - My Trustee and Helper, a Witness over My creatures, and My Entrusted with My Revelations - with prosperity. I will bring about Al-Hassan (The eleventh Divine Leader) from him - a caller to My Path and the Treasure-house of My Knowledge. Then I will complete Divine Leadership with his son (The twelfth Divine Leader)- Mercy for the people of the two Worlds. He will possess the Perfection of Moses, the Illumination of Jesus, and the Patience of Jacob. My friends will be belittled during his time. Their heads will be given to others as gifts like the heads of the Turks and the Daylams (Who were opposed to Islam) were. They will be killed and burnt. They will be in fear. The Earth will turn red from their shed blood. Their women will cry and mourn. They are truly My friends. I will fend off all oppressive seditions by them. I will fend off any earthquakes by them. I will eliminate any hardships and burdens by them. They are the ones on whom is the Blessings and Mercy from their Lord. They are the guided ones.’”

    Abdurrahman ibn Salim said that Abu Basir said, “If you had not even heard any traditions in all your life, just this one is enough for you. Therefore, guard it from all but those for whom it is meant.”

    Comment: Conditional Prophecies are a way of hadiths, this hadith doesn't imply it was destined Imams (a) be disobeyed, but rather shows God's plan if they would be disobeyed. This is nature of Quranic prophecies and hadiths.

    Misbahal Shariah is a honorable exalted book from Imam Jaffar (a). It's content speaks for itself but it also has authentic chain. The student who wrote the book down per direction of Imam Jaffar (a) some misguided Shiites try character destroy as a Sufi, but reality is, who is a Sufi and who is a Shiite, has always been debated in history. Remember Imam Jaffar (a) is seen as a Sufi by Sufis, a Salafi by Salafis, etc.. so this dispute of who is who, is normal. There is no reason to assume he is not a Shiite and a Sufi making up stuff.

    Part of the book:

    The Recognition of the Imams

    It is related with a sound chain of authority from Salman al- Farsi, 'I visited the Messenger of Allah who looked at me and said,

    "O Salman, Allah does not send a prophet or messenger unless there are with him twelve chiefs."

    “O Messenger of Allah, I know this from the people of the two books.”

    "O Salman, do you know my twelve chiefs, whom Allah has chosen to be leaders after me?"

    "Allah and His Messenger know best."

    "O Salman, Allah created me from the quintessence of light, and called me, so I obeyed Him. Then He created 'Ali from my light, and called him, and he obeyed. From my light and the light of 'Ali He created Fatimah: He called her and she obeyed. From me, 'Ali and Fatimah, He created al-Hasan and al-Husayn. He called them and they obeyed Him. Allah has named us with five of His names: Allah is al-Mahmud (the Praised) and I am Muhammad (worthy of praise); Allah is al-'Ali (the High), and this is 'Ali (the one of high rank); Allah is al-Fatir (Creator out of nothing), and this is Fatimah; Allah is the One with Hasan (beneficence), and this is Hasan; Allah is Muhassin (the Beautiful), and this is Husayn. He created nine Imams from the light of al-Husayn and called them and they obeyed Him, before Allah created either Heaven on high, the outstretched earth, the air, the angels or man. We were lights who glorified Him, listened to Him and obeyed Him."

    "O Messenger of Allah, may my father and mother be your ransom! What is there for the person who recognizes these men as they should be recognized?"

    "O Salman, whoever recognizes them as they should be recognized, and follows their example, befriends them and is free of their enemies, by Allah! he is one of us. He will return to where we return, and he will be where we are!"

    "O Messenger of Allah, is there belief without knowing their names and lineage?"

    "No, Salman."

    "Messenger of Allah, where will I find them?"

    "You already know al-Husayn; then there will be the master of the worshippers, 'Ali ibn Husayn (Zayn al-'Abidin); then his son Muhammad ibn 'Ali, the piercer of the knowledge of the early and the later prophets and messengers (al-Baqir); then Ja'far ibn Muhammad, the truthful tongue of Allah (al-Sadiq); then Musa ibn Ja'far, the one who kept his rage silent through patience in Allah (al-Kadhim); then 'Ali ibn Musa, pleased with the secret of Allah (al-Rida '); then Muhammad ibn 'Ali, the chosen one from the creatures of Allah (al-Mukatar); then 'Ali ibn Muhammad, the guide to Allah (al-Hadi); then al-Hasan, son of 'Ali, the silent, trustworthy guardian over the secret of Allah (al-'Askari); then mim ha' mim dal (Muhammad), called Ibn al-Hasan, the announcer who establishes the right of Allah."

    Salman said, 'I wept. Then I continued,

    "O Messenger of Allah, let my life be deferred until their time! "’

    'He said, "O Salman, recite this:

    فَإِذَا جَاء وَعْدُ أُولاهُمَا بَعَثْنَا عَلَيْكُمْ عِبَادًا لَّنَا أُوْلِي بَأْسٍ شَدِيدٍ فَجَاسُواْ خِلاَلَ الدِّيَارِ وَكَانَ وَعْدًا مَّفْعُولاً

    ثُمَّ رَدَدْنَا لَكُمُ الْكَرَّةَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَأَمْدَدْنَاكُم بِأَمْوَالٍ وَبَنِينَ وَجَعَلْنَاكُمْ أَكْثَرَ نَفِيرًا

    When the promise for the first of the two came, We sent over you our servants of mighty prowess, so they went to and fro among the houses, and it was a promise to be accomplished. Then We gave you back the turn to prevail against them, and aided you with wealth and children and made you a numerous band." ' (17:5-6)

    "I wept a lot," said Salman, "and my yearning became intense.” I said, "O Messenger of Allah, is it a pledge from you?"

    ' "Yes, by the One Who sent me and entrusted me with the Message; it is a pledge from me and from 'Ali, Fatimah, al-Hasan, al-Husayn, and the nine Imams descended from the children of al-Husayn, to you and those who are with us, and those of us who are wronged. Whoever is truly sincere in his belief, then by Allah, Salman, let Iblis and his armies come. Whoever has pure disbelief will be punished by retaliation, torture and inheritance (i.e. by others rather than them). Your Lord will not wrong anyone. It is we who are indicated in this verse:

    وَنُرِيدُ أَن نَّمُنَّ عَلَى الَّذِينَ اسْتُضْعِفُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَنَجْعَلَهُمْ أَئِمَّةً وَنَجْعَلَهُمُ الْوَارِثِينَ. وَنُمَكِّنَ لَهُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَنُرِي فِرْعَوْنَ وَهَامَانَ وَجُنُودَهُمَا مِنْهُم مَّا كَانُوا يَحْذَرُونَ

    We desired to bestow a favour upon those who were deemed weak in the land, and to make them the leaders, and to make them the heirs, and to grant them power in the land, and to make Pharaoh, Haman and their armies see from them what they feared." ' (28:5-6)

    Salman said, “I took leave of the Messenger of Allah, completely unconcerned as to how Salman would meet death, or how death would meet him.”

    (The author of the book narrated) my father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’d ibn Abdullah ibn Abi Khalaf quoted on the authority of Yaqoob ibn Yazid, on the authority of Hammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Abdullah ibn Moskan, on the authority of Aban ibn Taqlib, on the authority of Solaym ibn Qays al-Hilali, on the authority of Salman al-Farsi - may God have Mercy upon him said, “I went to see the Prophet (S). Al-Husayn was sitting on his lap. The Prophet (S) was kissing his eyes and lips and said, ‘You are a Master, the son of a Master. You are an Imam, the son of an Imam. You are a Proof, the son of a Proof. You are the father of nine Proofs that come from your loin. The one from your ninth generation will be the Riser.’”

    Chapter 6: On Proofs of Divine Leadership Of Al-Ridha’ (a.s.) Among The Twelve Imams (a.s.) | Uyun Akhbar Ar-Ridha Volume 1 | Al-Islam.org

    In fact, this hadith is found in Sunni and Sufi sources as well but will omit the sources, since this is not about Sunni sources.

    In Kifayatu 'l-athar, there is a tradition from Jabir ibn Abdillah al-Ansari, in explanation of this verse. When it was revealed, Jabir said to the Prophet: "We know Allah and the Prophet, but who are those vested with authority whose obedience has been conjoined to that of Allah and yourself?" The Prophet said: "They are my caliphs and the Imams of the Muslims after me. The first of them is Ali, then Hasan, then Husayn, then Ali, son of Husayn; then Muhammad, son of Ali, who has been mentioned as al-Baqir in the Torah. O Jabir! You will meet him. When you see him, convey my salam (greetings) to him. He will be succeeded by his son Ja'far as-Sadiq (the Truthful); then Musa, son of Ja'far; then Ali, son of Musa; then Muhammad, son of Ali; then Ali, son of Muhammad; then Hasan, son of Ali.

    "He will be followed by his son whose name and patronymic (kunyah) will be the same as mine. He will be Hujjatullah (Proof of Allah) on the earth and Baqiyyatullah (the one spared by Allah to maintain the cause of faith) among mankind. He will conquer the whole world from east to west. So long will he remain hidden from the eyes of his followers and friends that the belief in his imamah will remain only in those hearts which have been tested by Allah for faith."

    Jabir said: "O Messenger of Allah! Will his followers benefit from his seclusion?

    The Prophet said "Yes! By Him Who sent me with prophethood! They will be guided by his light, and benefit from his wilaayah (love; authority) during his seclusions just as people benefit from the sun even when-it is hidden in a cloud. O Jabir! This is from the hidden secrets of Allah and the treasured knowledge of Allah. So guard it except from the people (who deserve to know)."

    I will offer a prayer from Baha'u'llah in return.

    “Glory be to Thee, O God, for Thy manifestation of love to mankind! O Thou Who art our Life and Light, guide Thy servants in Thy way, and make us rich in Thee and free from all save thee.
    O God, teach us Thy Oneness and give us a realization of Thy Unity, that we may see no one save Thee. Thou art the merciful and the Giver of bounty!
    O God, create in the hearts of Thy beloved the fire of Thy love, that it may consume the thought of everything save Thee.
    Reveal to us, O God, Thine exalted eternity — that Thou hast ever been and will ever be, and that there is no God save Thee. Verily, in Thee will we find comfort and strength.”
    – Baha’u’llah

    All Prophets in their own time were superior to pervious prophets, because the Revelations of God are progressive. The new Revelation is superior to previous one. Jesus was superior to Mose.

    Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

    There are many hadiths about there constantly being a proof of on earth. We will see hadiths about 13:7 and other verses in this respect. I am going start with the famous discussion on knowledge to Kumail by Imam Ali (a):

    ...Yet, the earth is never devoid of either a manifest proof or the one in concealment, ensuring that His clear signs are not lost...

    The full dialogue online source: What Imam Ali (A.S) said to Kumail - Islam Guidance (sibtayn.com).

    To me this means, for example, when Jesus was on earth, He was the manifested guide. When He was martyred and left the world, He was the concealed. Then at that time, the Spirit of Truth, was the unmanifested proof. Once Muhammad appeared, He was the Spirit of truth, taking a physical body, thus the unmanifested became Manifested.
    So, was Moses, Abraham, or Zoroaster.
    For Muslims, Muhammad was the Manifest guide, then after Him, Imam Ali was the Manifest guide, and then Imams after Him, until Imam Askari. Once the 11th Imam was Martyred, then your Imam had disappeared, and thus the 12th One was the unmanifested Imam, albeit in the Spiritual realm., until He is born into this world. Here is the Hadith:

    والكافي امتحان الناس في غيبة المهدي عليه اسلام [1919 - (الإمام الباقر عليه السلام) " فسلي يا أم هاني قالت: قلت: يا سيدي قول الله عز وجل: فلا أقسم بالخنس الجوار الكنس، قال: نعم المسألة سألتني يا أم هاني. هذا مولود في آخر الزمان، هو المهدي من هذه العترة، تكون له حيرة وغيبة، يضل فيها أقوام، ويهتدي فيها أقوام: فيا طوبى لك إن أدركته، ويا طوبى لمن أدركه "] * 1919

    Umi Hani Ask Imam Baghir about the verse of Quran

    فلا أقسم بالخنس الجوار الكنس

    Imam answered: umi Hani you asked a good question. This is the Mahdi who will be born in the Last period of Time or Akharuzaman.
    Likewise when Jesus came, it is written in the Gospels, that it was the Last Hour. This term, or Last Hour, means, when the End of an Ummat comes. Every ummat has an end, when their end comes, God does not delay it even one Hour. At that time, the promised One, who was hidden, is manifested to this world. For Jews, this hidden proof was Messiah. For Muslims this hidden proof was Mahdi. This is why, Jesus said, He came down from Heaven, meaning before He is born, He was in Heaven or the spiritual realm. Likewise is the Mahdi. Until He is not born, He is in the spiritual realm. For Baha'is the Bab is the promised One, who manifested His cause in the year 1260 AH.

    ضَلَلْتُ عَنْ دِينِي

    I will stray off the path to my religion.

    اَللَّهُمَّ لاَ تُمِتْنِي مِيتَةً جَاهِلِيَّةً

    @Link, Salam,

    When you say, you can seek guidance from Imam, what do you mean by "guidance"?

    You are already a Muslim, you believe in Quran, in Muhammad and the Imams after Him. So, you are already guided. What do you mean to seek guidance from the hidden Imam? Can you give an example, a case, that you or a Muslim may need guidance for?

    First, personal can't be proven. So only liars (because Quran says proof is always needed) will testify to themselves constantly being guided by Imam Mahdi whether at spiritual level of unseen light or he meeting them to public, although some might not be able to keep it away from family or wife or close friends. No one will claim this in public but a liar.

    However, according to Du'a and hadiths and Quran, believers (not saying I am one of them) can have one or all of these or some:

    (1) The light of the Imam is the light. The Quran talks about Mohammad (S) connecting people and being a rope between heaven and earth and so do hadiths and prayers taught by Ahlulbayt (A) emphasize about Imam of time being that. And Sahefa Sajjadiya emphasizes the Imam of time is Baha'al Alimeen (The glamour/glory of the world).

    (2) Him meeting/talking to you which we see in Du'a Nudba we see is it possible that we find a way to meet and so if this happens, he might be giving you warnings where you are at if you are falling into darkness and moving to disbelief or using you if you are luminous in heart and firm, he can give you commands. Interpreting some of Quran where you are blind to aspects of it, that he wishes to open up. This can be short meeting one day followed up by longer ones for example.

    (3) He has close followers and friends, who he sends and commands constantly in unseen and seen, meets them in world also they are connected to his light, not all people can be this, but we can hope and strive for it.

    (4) He can show you miracles and signs of this nature.

    (5) Fights on behalf of you and carries you against the dark magic and protects you constantly with his powers from Satanic magic and Iblis forces from Jinn and humans.

    (6) Covers you with light that protects you and is a barrier against Iblis

    (7) Provide constant help if you in darkness and tries to shed light and pull you back to God and he too whispers to your heart like Iblis whispers through his minions.

    (8) Send some of his closest friends and helpers to assist a believer

    (9) Has non-Muslim (officially) doing Taqiya in important places in the world while they hide their faith and don't outwardly show it, they are of the highest believers (some of them)

    (10) Sword of God to be picked up, held on to you, inwardly, and used to fight for soul against dark magic and sorcerers and evil leading astray jinn attacking a believer.

    (11) Connect you to his family (Mohammad, Ali, Fatima, etc) as he provides link to heaven and earth as a rope.

    (12) Teach you powers and bestow you them, including talking to dead, traveling/warping on earth to where you want, and other powers if he sees you are fit and won't cause you disbelief and be arrogant and rebel, thereby not only losing your power and connection to Imam, but rebelling against him with Devils accusing him as sorcerer.

    (13) Explain through friends of his on how we should politically act

    (14) Give you directions to fulfill whether whispering or meeting you, in God's plan,, or a mix of these and for you to be part of the Laylatal Qadr plans of God from now on.

    There's more, I hope these are enough.

    So, God, the Prophet and other Imams are incapable of doing these same things?

    I see you have your view, a view with no given Authority.

    A Baha'i has access to explanations on the meanings of the Quran and Ahadith, contained within the Message of the Bab, Baha’u’llah and further explained by Abdul'baha and Shoghi Effendi, to which for a Baha'i is Allah’s given explanations.

    Is there any point to debating this over and over?
