Command

The command not to shed blood, is a command given to Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) by our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), it is a strict directive. As the necessity of this command of our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) will never shed blood in any period of his life. Anyone who acts otherwise, that is anyone who sheds blood, in spite of the strict directive of our Prophet (saas) is definitely not the Mahdi (pbuh).
