Imam Mahdi’s (As) Life Time
Many people say how can it be possible that Imam Mahdi (As) have this much life time? Then how Prophet Jesus Christ son of Mary (As) is alive for near 2000 years?
Many people are asking how Imam Mahdi (As) can be alive until now. They’re saying that this much life time is impossible. but if we just look at the genesis book of Torah we can figure out that there is not only Imam Mahdi (As) that have this much life time. There’re lots of prophets that had a long life like prophet Adam, prophet Noah and… these are mentioned on Torah, For example in Genesis – Chapter 5 you can see many people had a long life time.
These’re some part of Genesis – Chapter 5 :
And the days of Adam after he begot Seth were eight hundred years; and he begot sons and daughters.
And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years; and he died.
And Seth lived a hundred and five years, and begot Enosh.
And Seth lived after he begot Enosh eight hundred and seven years, and begot sons and daughters.
And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years; and he died.
And Enosh lived ninety years, and begot Kenan.
And Enosh lived after he begot Kenan eight hundred and fifteen years, and begot sons and daughters.
And all the days of Enosh were nine hundred and five years; and he died.
Further more why no one speaks about Jesus Christ son of Mary’s (As) life time until now?
Whether from Shia Muslim’s view which they believe that he never crucified and his ascension was physically or from Christianity’s view that he became alive after three days and he ascended physically.
Its 1983 years that Jesus (As) is alive from his crucifixion until now (2016). To conclude a long life isn’t just for Imam Mahdi (As) and Prophet Jesus (As) have a very longer time.
