Confused. Point 6 here says, The advent of the mahdi from the lineage of the Prophet through Husayn ibn Ali to remove the existing injustices and bring equity and peace to the faithful. I thought lineage of the prophet was a core Shiite belief. Wouldn't this autonmatically make him a Shiite?188.8.131.52 (talk) 03:26, 26 November 2009 (UTC)
The "lineage of the prophet" is in no way only a Shiite belief. However, I am more surprised about the "mahdi" concept. This I considered to correspond largely to Shiism... СЛУЖБА (talk) 22:06, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
Belief in a Mahdi is quite widespread in traditional Sunni doctrine as well. See the article 'Mahdi' for different views. The most famous claim to Mahdism in a Sunni society is the 19th century Mahdi of Sudan. Harithbr (talk) 17:37, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Transliteration from Arabic doesnt seem consistent here. Why 'Juhayman' and 'Sayf', but 'Otaibi', rather than 'Otaibi'? Harithbr (talk) 17:29, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
