Hadith al-Thaqalayn and the existence of Imam Mahdi
The text of the Hadith: “O people, I am a human being [like others]. I am about to leave you (and go with the Angel of death) …. I am leaving among you two weighty things: these two are “the Book of God “and “My kindred (Itrah): my Ahl al-Bayt”. Indeed, the two will never separate from each other until they come back to me by the Pond (of al-¬Kawthar).Do not overtake them because this transgression will destroy you"
The points of the Hadith al-Thaqalayn:
1- The Prophet has left “Two successors” after himself to guide the nation.
2- Both successors will remain until the Doomsday and they will never separate.
3- Hold fast to them (obey them) to be safe from misguidance.
This hadith has been much repeated in Shiite books and also has written down in Sunni sources including: Sahih Muslim, Sunan Tirmidhi and Sonan al-Darami
