(salam)
Imām ‘Alī (‘a) said: “Hadrat al-Mahdī (‘atfs) will rule for seven years; every year in that time will be equal to ten years of yours.” [39]
[39] ‘Iqd ad-Durar, pp. 224, 238; Ithbāt al-Hudāh, vol. 3, p. 624.

The Period of Rule

SOURCE: http://dlserver.yasinmedia.com/v87/Engl ... c172189858

Regarding the period of rule of al-Mahdī (‘atfs), there are various hadīths existing in both Sunnī and Shī‘ah sources. Some hadīths limit the period of Imām al-Mahdī’s (‘atfs) rule to seven years. Others mention eight, nine, ten, or twenty years while there are even hadīths that say one thousand years. What is certain is that the government of Hadrat al-Mahdī (‘atfs) will not be less than seven years, and this period has been emphasized in some hadīths reported from the Imāms (‘a).
Perhaps it can be said that the period of rule would be seven years, but the length of a year at that time will be different from ours, as indicated in some hadīths such as the following:
“His rule will be seven years and each year is equivalent to ten of your years. Therefore, the years of his rule will be equivalent to your seventy years.” [38]
Imām ‘Alī (‘a) said: “Hadrat al-Mahdī (‘atfs) will rule for seven years; every year in that time will be equal to ten years of yours.” [39]
The Holy Messenger of Allah (ṣ) said: “The Mahdī (‘atfs) is from us… and for seven years he will take charge of affairs.” [40]
The Prophet (ṣ) also said: “He will rule for seven years over this ummah.” [41]
The Messenger of Allah (ṣ) also said elsewhere: “The tenure of rule of al-Mahdī (ṣ) will be seven years at the shortest or it will last for eight or nine years at the longest.” [42] It has also been reported: “Hadrat al-Mahdī (‘atfs) will rule in this world for nine years.” [43]
Jābir ibn ‘Abdullāh al-Anṣārī asked Imām al-Bāqir (‘a): “How many years will the Imām of the Time (‘atfs) live?” The Imām (‘a) replied: “From the day of the uprising till his demise will be nineteen years long.” [44]
The Messenger of Allah (ṣ) said: “Hadrat al-Mahdī (‘atfs) will rule for twenty years. He will take out the treasures from the ground; he will conquer the lands of polytheism.” [45]
He (ṣ) also said: “The Mahdī (‘atfs) is from my progeny and he will rule for twenty years.” [46]
It has also been reported: “The Imām (‘atfs) will rule for ten years.” [47]
In answer to the question on how many years the Mahdī (‘atfs) will rule, Hadrat ‘Alī (‘a) said: “He will rule over the people for thirty or forty years.” [48]
Imām aṣ-Ṣādiq (‘a) said: “Hadrat al-Mahdī (‘atfs) will be from my progeny and his age will be equal to that of Ibrāhīm Khalīl ar-Raḥmān (Prophet Abraham) (‘a). He will appear at the age of eighty years and rule for forty years.” [49]
The same Imām (‘a) also said: “The tenure of Hadrat al-Qā’im’s (‘atfs) rule will be nineteen years and some months.” [50]
Imām al-Bāqir (‘a) said: “Hadrat al-Qā’im (‘atfs) will rule for three hundred and nine years just as the Companions of the Cave stayed in the cave for the same period.” [51]

The late Majlisī said: “The hadīths regarding the Imām’s (‘atfs) period of rule must be explained under the following probabilities: Some hadīths refer to the entire period of rule while some others point to the period of stabilization and establishment. Some are based on the years and days that we are acquainted with while others are based on the years and days in the time of the Imām (‘atfs) which are long. God knows best the truth of the matter.” [52]

After mentioning the hadīths, the late Āyatullāh Ṭabasī, my honorable father, gives preference to the hadīth that propounds seven years, but he says: “It means that by the power of God, every year at that time will be equal to ten of our years.” [53]
