As Salamu Alaykum My question is will the Mahdi restore the Caliphate
or will the Caliphate be retsored before he comes are there diffrent interpretations or opinions or views according to Hadiths before Day of Judement Last and Anti Christ coming thank you ? A Muslim Brother told me that the  Mahdi will restore the Caliphate and  I asked how does he know this ir where he heard this or where I could get more information about this subject he said to go to and search the website or email them I did try to email this site and got no reply yet anyway I am a new Convert/Revert from the United States and Im male age 25 thank you for you're time. One reason why Im asking this question is because some Non Muslims think certain Muslim Political Movements that call for a Caliphate  right now are Radical or linked to Terrorism as a Political Agenda now I don't believe that wanting a Caliphate should be viewed as Radical but I hear other Muslims say it is in God's hands if there is a Caliphate or now sorry if my interpretation is wrong I may be confused thank you ?

Al-Mahdi (the Mahdi)
1. Sunni Muslims' Al-Mahdi (Mehdi)
2. Signs before the Mahdi
3. Roman (European) Invasions of the lands of Muslims & the Conquest of Constantinople & Rome by Muslims
4. Other Wars & Events around the time of the Mahdi(s)This includesa)internal fighting & bloodshed in the Muslim World, (b) the Mahdi's fighting against Iran, (c) invasions by the Turks (Russians), (d) fighting the Andalusians, and Abyssinians (Ethiopians & East Africans),(e) Muslims' conquest of India, etc.
5. Could Muslims could be ruled by a series of Caliphs, not just the Mahdi ?
6. Similarities between Shia's Imam Mahdi & the Anti-Christ Shia's Imam Mahdi is likely to be the Anti-Christ

It is known that Caliphate will be established after the appearance of Al Mahdi. So how come the first Hadith say that disagreement will occur at the death of a caliph and then Al Mahdi will appear? The simple answer is that, maybe, the Hadith is only talking about an ordinary leader who is not in the right path of Allah . If this is right, it may be that it is refering to Bin Laden, as disagreements have surely occured in the Ummah due to his death. Or, it may be that this Hadith is refering to Ahmadinejad, and his future death, which may surely cause disagreements. And Allah and His Messenger know best.

Al-Mahdi & A Caliphate That Follows the Guidance of the Prophet (saws)
by A. Hijazi

Hudhaifah bin Al-Yaman reported that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam said,
"Prophethood (meaning himself) will remain with you for as long as Allah wills it to remain, then Allah will raise it up wherever he wills to raise it up. Afterwards, there will be a Caliphate that follows the guidance of Prophethood remaining with you for as long as Allah wills it to remain. Then, He will raise it up whenever He wills to raise it up. Afterwards, there will be a reign of violently oppressive [The reign of Muslim kings who are partially unjust] rule and it will remain with you for as long as Allah wills it to remain. Then, there will be a reign of tyrannical rule and it will remain for as long as Allah wills it to remain. Then, Allah will raise it up whenever He wills to raise it up. Then, there will be a Caliphate that follows the guidance of Prophethood."
Then Hudhaifah said, "The Prophet stopped speaking." [As-Silsilah As-Sahihah, vol. 1, no. 5]

Walaikum as-salaam.  These are matters of the future and we should not speculate about them.  Associating the events described in the hadiths with people in our times, such as speculating that bin Laden is the "Caliph" whose death will cause disagreements, is a mistake.  We should refrain from making these speculative claims.  The hadiths state that following the death of this leader, a man from the Prophet's family (Imam Mahdi) will go from Madina to Mecca, where the people will pledge their allegiance to him at the Kaaba.  Well, bin Laden died more than 2 years ago, and nothing has happened.  So clearly, he could not be the leader mentioned in the hadiths.  Also, the "disagreement" that is supposed to occur is regarding who would be the successor of the dead leader, not any disagreement in general.  Disagreements have existed in the Ummah for a long time, well before Bin Laden.  In fact, that is why we suffer so much. 

For more on the coming of Imam Mahdi, see the following:

Regarding the word "Caliph", it simply refers to a leader, so it does not necessarily mean a literal Caliph (the leader of a Caliphate).  In the Quran,  Adam (pbuh) is referred to as "khalifatan" (خَلِيفَةً), which most translators render as "viceregent" or "viceroy":

"Behold, thy Lord said to the angels: "I will create a vicegerent on earth." They said: "Wilt Thou place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood?- whilst we do celebrate Thy praises and glorify Thy holy (name)?" He said: "I know what ye know not." (Surah al-Baqarah, 2:30).

In the Tafsir al-Jalalayn, the "viceregent" is identified as Adam (pbuh).  However, Ibn Kathir interprets it as meaning mankind in general.  Whoever "khalifatan" refers to, obviously, it does not mean a "Caliph" in the sense of a successor to Muhammad (pbuh) as leader of the Muslims.

In any case, we should not spend too much time on this issue.  Rather, we should strive to strengthen our faith and knowledge and do good deeds, because it will only be through the striving of the Ummah that the glad tidings of Imam Mahdi and Jesus (as) will come about, inshaAllah.  We cannot simply wait for their coming.  So, I would urge you brother to not get too tied up about this issue.  I also fervently await the coming of Imam Mahdi and I lament the current state of the Ummah, but that is more reason for us to make ourselves into better Muslims, inshaAllah.    

Allah knows best!

Say: "Truly, my prayer and my service of sacrifice, my life and my death, are (all) for Allah, the Cherisher of the Worlds. (Surat al-Anaam: 162)
