Topic of “Mahdaviat” is a topic which all the Muslims have accepted in some way or another. The Wahhabism also believe in the principle of Mahdaviat, spread of justice and his appearance at end-times, based on narratives which they consider as Mutawatir. “Abdul-Aziz Binbaz”, being one of the recent figures of the Wahhabism school, has made some comments, though sporadically, about the topic of Mahdaviat. The current article is a work on reviewing the viewpoint of the Wahhabism in regards to the Promised Mahdi specifically Abdul-Aziz Binbaz using descriptive-analytical method. Binbaz considers the narrative in regards to the essence of Mahdaviat as Mutawatir and calls the one who rejects the idea as Kafir (infidel). He has counted characteristics such as having the same name as the Holy Prophet of Islam (s.a.w), being from the Ahlulbayt (a.s), descendent of Hasan (a.s), spreading justice, governing based on the holy Sharia, being present with the coming of Jesus and … for the Mahdi of the end-times. However there are some legit critics about his view in which the writer has tried to use the Wahhabi sources for the most part.
