I pray this message find you all in the best state of eeman and health Insha-Allah. My question is regarding The Mahdi. Will the Mahdi literally be from the offspring of the Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalam) i.e. from the bloodline? Or did the Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalam) mean the mahdi will be from amongst the ummah with the same name as his? Cos a brother and surprisingly a non-Muslim asked me this at work and I told them i didn't know, although I did say I assume the Mahdi will be from the bloodline of the Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalam) but I told them I will refer back to the scholars or students of knowledge regarding this to get an exact answer.
Alhumdulillah, alot of non-Muslims at my work are starting to ask alot of questions about Islam, and one of my colleague's asked whether the Mahdi is someone from amongst the ummah rather than literally being from the bloodline as the bloodline of the Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wassalam) had been cut off/killed off. A detailed answer would be very beneficial.

Bismillaah Al-Hamdulillaah wa salatu wa salaamu 'ala rasulullaah
Amma ba'd

Wa 'alaykum u salam wa rahmatullaahi wa baarakatu, ya Absar ibn Mumtaz,

May Allaah bless you, akhee.

Shaikh Saalih al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) said in his sharh of Lum'atul I'tiqaad:

...the Mahdi and he will be from the family of the Messenger sall Allaahu 'alaiyhi wa sallam from the descendants of al Hasan, the grandson of the Messenger sall Allaahu 'alaiyhi wa sallam.

The Mahdi's name will be like that of the Messenger sall Allaahu 'alaiyhi wa sallam i.e. Muhammad ibn 'Abdillaah.

He will spread justice and he will spread Islaam and Allaah will aid the religion through him. He will fill the Earth with justice just as it was previously filled with oppression.

And in his time, al Maseeh ud Dajjaal will emerge.
And, of course, since we have been commanded by Allaah and His Messenger (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) to call upon baseerah and to begin our call by inviting to [url=]Tawheed first[/url], then here is some material for you to read, and for you to hand out.  

The first three links are important reminders for you to understand before calling - may Allaah bless you, Absar, in your striving toward good - and the links thereafter are for them.  

For the one who wants to call:    

[url=]Shaikh Rabee': Call to Tawheed Represents Peak of Sincerity[/url]

[url=]The Methodology of the Prophets in Calling to Allaah[/url]

[url=]Shaikh Sindee: Ya ikhwan, give this person da'wah![/url]

To hand out to the disbelievers, or direct them to:  

[url=]Do you worship The Creator (alone) without partners?[/url]


[url=]Islam for non-Muslims[/url]

[url=]Muslim-Christian Dialogue[/url]

[url=]Salafitalk's Non-Muslim forum, where they can ask questions[/url]

Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk  

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
