Belief regarding Imam Mahdi (as)


Assalamu alaikum,

I would like to know the beliefs of Ahlesunnah wal Jama’ah regarding Imam Mahdi(as), that would Imam Mahdi(As) be divinely appointed as guide by Allah just as the Prophets are, would Imam Mahdi(As) be infallible as Prophets are, and would Imam Mahdi(as) receive Wahi, like the Prophets?

And will Imam Mahdi(as) have any differences in his characteristics(sifaat) compared to characteristics of Prophets or He will possess ALL characteristics of Prophets?


wa `alaykum salam,

See the Post “Imam Mahdi as Masoom Khatim-e-deen” and the link at Living Islam, The Coming of the Mahdi, both by Dr. Gibril Haddad.
