Belief in the unseen is fundamental in all heavenly religions, and the invitation of heavenly leaders is effective in the people who believes in the existence of a world and things beyond this tangible world. Belief in the advent of the last reformer and Mahdī of the time is also one of these matters that the Messenger of God (PBUH) informed about and its approval and acceptance is obligatory. Quranic verses, frequently transmitted narrations from Shiʿites and Sunnis and the consensus of Muslims and what agreed with by various schools and religions in the field are among the most important proofs for the necessary emergence of the Mahdī of the generation of the last prophet. Therefore, belief in prophecy requires belief in the appearance of that Imām, and it is not permissible to separate the two. In this way, it seems necessary to pay attention to both dimensions of religious content and the requirements of the media and to benefit from these two wings in order to recognize the last promised. Therefore, in this study, by using religious texts and narratives with the method of theme analysis, we distinguish the unique characteristics of Ḥaḍrat Ḥujjat (AS) from false claimants, and then by analyzing the discourse, the approaches and the discourse governing the media effects of 9 main active groups. We will extract Mahdism from the false claimants, and between these two and the analysis of the content of interviews with Mahdism and media experts, we will explain the desired model of the media to oppose them.
