The book of “Dar al-Salam”

Mentioned two times in the Quran, “Dar al-Salam” is a term meaning the place of peace, security and health. Both Shia and Sunni interpreters believe this term to mean the heaven.

This book is a valuable piece and such a precious legacy. It covers Mahdism topics such as, Imam Mahdi (PBUH), the duty of the awaiting people, the Minor and the Major Occultation, and associated topics. It has been authored by an outstanding scholar and a pious erudite out of sincerity. The author is departed “Allama Mahmood Maythami Iraqi”, the son of Ja’far ibn Baqir ibn Qasim, one of the descendants of “Maytham Tammar”, the famous companion of Imam Ali (PBUH). Obviously affection for Imam Ali (PBUH) and his descendants was handed down to him from his honorable ancestor.

What is acquired by the reader of the book is that the author has initially intended to report those who had visited Imam Mahdi (PBUH) while awake or in a revelation. Some reports of the book are mentioned for the first time. There are numerous visitations which the author has heard from trustworthy and reliable narrators and has collected them in his book. The other point is that the author wasn’t satisfied only with the sayings and hearings. Rather, he has heard himself the original account from the blessed ones who experienced it or he has asked them in writing.
