Some Christians deny that Syed Ahmed Al-Hasan (pbuh) is the Comforter, because the Comforter can only be Spirit and not human.
How to respond to this?
Question about the Holy Spirit
The following is taken from the Almahdyoon.com website
Other literature is being translated into Arabic which we will refer to once it has been made available.
Syed Ahmed Al-Hasan (pbuh) is the Comforter
Glad tidings have come about the First Mahdi, Executor and Messenger from Imam Mahdi (pbuh): they have come in the New Testament, in various places, giving glad tidings from Jesus (pbut) about the Comforter.
In John 14:
26 As for the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, which the Father will send in my name, he will teach you everything, and he will remind you about everything that I said to you. 27 Peace I leave to you. My peace I give to you. I do not give you, as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be disturbed, nor fearful.
28 You heard me say to you: I will go, then come to you. If you loved me you will be happy because I said ‘I will go to my Lord’, because my Father is greater than I.
29 And I said to you now, before it happens, until when will you believe.
30 I will not talk much with you, because the leader of this world will come and he has nothing in me.
31 But so that the world understand, that I love the Father, and as the Father has bequeathed to me, so shall I act. Stand up, let us go from here
In John 15:
26 And when the Comforter comes, who I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth, who issues forth from the Father, he will bear witness to me
27 And you shall also bear witness, because you are with me from the beginning
In John 16:
5 And as for now, I am going to the One Who sent me and none from among you can ask me “Where are you going?”
6 But because I said this to you, grief has filled your hearts.
7 But I say the truth to you: it is better for you that I go, because if I do not go, the Comforter will not come to you, but if I go I will send him to you.
8 And when that one comes, he will chastise the world about sin, piety and religion.
9 As for sin, it is because they do not believe in me.
10 As for piety it is because I am going to my Father and you will also not see me.
11 And as for religion, it is because the leader of this world has been condemned.
12 I have many matters that you still cannot bear now.
13 As for when that one comes, the spirit of truth, he will guide you to all Truth, because he does not talk from himself, but he will speak all that he hears and he will tell you about forthcoming matters
