It is an established fact that there will be no new prophet after the last of the Apostles, The Holy Prophet Mohammad. In order to protect this pure religion, Allah  –  هناحبس   و   ىلاعت  will send at the  turn of every century,a great scholar who will strive against evil and revive the religion for the Muslim nation. He will be sent to remove all innovations and deviations that will have crept into it.


The Reviver will have some noble and un-mistakable traits:-

  He will have un-flinching faith in  Allah  –  هناحبس   و   ىلاعت   -–  and will have staunch belief of  the  Ahle-Sunnah creed.


 He will be an erudite, highly respected and recognised as a leader among scholars.


 He will be extremely pious, as well as courageous.


 He will come at a time when many trials will be prevalent, confused ideas will be rampant and when the enemies of Islam – the open disbelievers and the hypocrites – will be seeking to destroy it.


 He will stand up against every sort of tyranny, deviation in belief and hypocrisy.


How unfortunate it is that the word “reviver of Islam” is also being misused by deviant sects to promote their own leaders and corrupt beliefs.  Surprisingly some of these so-called rivivers are actually those who advocate ‘friendship” with all disbelievers or who are bank-rolled by anti-Islamic governments! Look at the above traits and judge for yourself!

We pray to Allah  to  continuously  guide us, as He  has  taught  us to  pray  for it, in the opening chapter of the Holy Qur’an.


Guide us on the Straight Path. The path of those whom You have favoured. [Fatihah 1:5-6]


Allah’s Apostle   said, ““There will always be in my nation a group who will safeguard the truth until the day of resurrection comes”  (1) Hakeem Mustadarak)


The Holy Prophet   said, ““Allah shall send for this Ummah at the head of every hundred years a person who shall revive their religion for them”  (2) Abu Dawud,Hakim,Baihaqi


The Holy Prophet   said, “The scholars are the inheritors of the prophets.(3) Tirmidhi, Abu Dawood, Nasai, Ibn Maja, Ahmad, Ibn Hibban
