Q: I have one doubt, are there any relatives of Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) presently?
A: The hadeeth says that before Qiyaamat there will be a personality who is known as Imaam Mahdi. He will come and will be from the family of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). This hadeeth shows that the descendants of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) are around presently.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
