Quoting: Ultimate Saviour 991218
In it’s giant Egypt’s Al-Masry Al-Youm declared the US President-In-Chief “Obama the Awaited” front page headline, drawing parallels to the Mahdi, who in Muslim estacheology is believed to appear before the end of days as a saviour, as the second coming of Christ.
Is Barack Obama the “promised warrior” coming to help the Hidden Imam of Shiite Muslims conquer the world? The question has made the rounds in Iran since last month, when a pro-government Web site published a Hadith (or tradition) from a Shiite text of the 17th century. The tradition comes from Bahar al-Anvar (meaning Oceans of Light) by Mullah Majlisi, a magnum opus in 132 volumes and the basis of modern Shiite Islam. According to the tradition, Imam Ali Ibn Abi-Talib (the prophet’s cousin and son-in-law) prophesied that at the End of Times and just before the return of the Mahdi, the Ultimate Saviour, a “tall black man will assume the reins of government in the West.”

Abdullah ibn ' Amr (radhiyAllaahu anh) related that he heard the Messenger of Allah say,
"Dhu As-Suwaiqatain, who is from Habasha (Ethiopia), will destroy the Ka'bah; he will steal its jewels and remove from it its covering. It is as if I am looking at him - Usaili'an (one who has a receding hairline or one who is bald), Ufaidi'an (having crooked joints). He will strike it with his Masaahiyah ( a steel shovel) and his Mai'wal ( a huge axe that is used to pierce through rocks)."
(Ahmad) This chain is good and strong.
Abdullah ibn ' Amr (radhiyAllaahu anh) related that the Prophet said,
"Leave Habasha (Ethiopia) alone so long as they leave you alone, for none shall remove the treasure of the Ka'bah except for Dhu As-Suwaigatain who is from Habasha."
Ibn ' Abbas related that the Prophet said,
"It is as if I am looking at him - (he is) black and bowlegged. He will tear it (i.e. the Ka'bah) down, stone by stone."
This is in Ibn Katheer's (rahimaullaah) book, "The Sign of the End Times".
