By taking into account only this one example of tradition, or even not noticing other documents or undeniable and uncountable traditions which exist on the background of Imamate and leadership, it is quite clear that an unequaled personality or Mahdi (p.b.u.h), according to successive and undeniable traditions, is of the Prophets lineage, and at the end fills the world with justice - will be the last Imam of the twelve Imams.
For this reason, the history of Mahdi (p.b.u.h), The twelfth Imam of the Imam's of the Prophets household (p.b.u.t) will be explained for every Muslim.
