The Abdal are in Syria

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Hanbal (r.a.) recorded this hadits in his Musnad, and Imam Muhammad ibn ‘Abdullah al-Khathib at-Tabrizi (r.a.) in his Mishkat al-Maswabih.  Both are major compilations of ahadits.  The text as from Musnad Ahmad reads on the authority of Sayyidina Shurayh ibn ‘Ubayd (r.a.) that when the people of Sham were mentioned in Sayyidina ‘Ali ibn Abu Thalib’s (k.w.) presence, someone said, “O Prince of the Believers, curse them!”

Sayyidina ‘Ali (k.w.) replied, “No!  I heard Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.) saying, ‘The Abdal will be in Syria.  They are forty men; whenever one dies, Allah (s.w.t.) Replaces him with another man.  By virtue of them, He Provides rain and by virtue of them, He Provides Help against the enemies.  By virtue of them, punishment is Averted from Sham.’”
