Claimed to be The Promised Messiah and Mahdi
Promised Messiah was a prophet to unite mankind in the Latter Days.
Claimed to be the metaphorical second coming of Jesus (as) of Nazareth and the divine guide, whose advent was foretold by the Holy Prophet (saw).
His mission was to establish pure unity of God to counter the polytheistic ideas, to strengthen the relationship between man and his Creator, and to establish virtue and righteousness. “It was also his mission to create faith in God by demonstrating powers of God [through] heavenly signs” in order to lead man out of the darkness of doubt into the light of faith and certainty. The Promised Messiah came in order to usher in an era of peace by uniting mankind behind the banner of Islam and ending war and violence. Purifying Islam and propagating the true message and image of Islam was also part of his mission.
