The descriptions of the companions of Imam Mahdi (PBUH) in the Quran

O ye who believe! if any from among you turn back from his Faith, soon will Allah produce a people whom He will love as they will love Him,- lowly with the believers, mighty against the rejecters, fighting in the way of Allah, and never afraid of the reproaches of such as find fault. That is the grace of Allah, which He will bestow on whom He pleaseth. And Allah encompasseth all, and He knoweth all things. [The Quarn, Surah 5, verse 54]. (The same concept is availbale in Surah 6, verse 89)

It is narrated that the above verse is revealed about Imam Mahdi (PBUH)…

(Al-Burhan Fi Tafsir al-Quran, vol. 2, p. 315

Al-Ghayba al-Nu'mani, p. 316)


The Rising of Sufyani is inevitable

He it is created you from clay, and then decreed a stated term (for you). And there is in His presence another determined term; yet ye doubt within yourselves! [The Quran, Surah 6, Verse 2]

Imam Baqir (PBUH) said about this verse “There are two types of terms; inevitable and pending”, Humran ibn A'ayan said: “I hope that the term of Sufyani is of the pending ones. Imam said: “No, By Allah, it is of the inevitable ones.”

“The rise event” in the Quran

But when they forgot the warning they had received, We opened to them the gates of all (good) things, until, in the midst of their enjoyment of Our gifts, on a sudden, We called them to account, when lo! They were plunged in despair! [The Quran, Surah 6, Verse 44]

Imam Baqir (PBUH) said: “The purpose behind the phrase “They forgot the warning they had received” is that because they abandoned Wilayat (succession) of Imam Ali, although they were appointed to it, we opened gates of anything [of affluence] to them… they became deluded and delighted (and they became attached to it.) All of a sudden, we reprimanded them (and punished them severely.) At that time, they were disappointed because of the rise of Qa’im…”

An end to repenting

Translation: “The day that certain of the signs of thy Lord do come, no good will it do to a soul to believe in them then if it believed not before nor earned righteousness through its faith. Say: "Wait ye: we too are waiting." (The Quran, Sursh 6, Verse 158)

Imam Sadiq (PBUH) in interpreting this verse said: The word “verse” represents “Imams” and the word “waiting” is “Qa’im”. Before the day of Imam Mahdi’s (PBUH) uprising, if someone does not believe in him, it does not give him benefit, even if he believes in other true Imams. [According to this “the uprising time” is different from the “Reappearance time”.]

The “Command of awaiting for Imam Mahdi’s Reappearance” in the Quran

“… Then wait: I am amongst you, also waiting.” [The Quarn, Surah 7, verse 71]

Imam Reza (PBUH) said: “How good is waiting for Imam Mahdi’s Reappearance. Haven’t you heard Allah the Sublime said: “Then wait: I am amongst you, also waiting.” So you must wait because the Reappearance comes after disappointment and your ancestors were more patient than you.”

“The Last Government” in the Holy Quran

Said Moses to his people: “Pray for help from Allah, and (wait) in patience and constancy: for the earth is Allah’s, to give as a heritage to such of His servants as He pleaseth; and the end is (best) for the righteous.” [The Quran, Surah 7, Verse 128]

Imam Baqir (PBUH) said: “Our government is among the last governments, each dynasty will achieve its government before us; because upon seeing our reign, no one could claim that if they had such a reign, they would have done the same. So the Quran says:  “and the end is (best) for the righteous”

(The Keyword of Mahdism Verses. p. 144)


“The time of the Reappearance” in the Quran

Mofazzal says: “I asked my master, Imam Sadiq (PBUH): “Is any time fixed for the Reappearance of the awaited Mahdi (PBUH) and should people know when he will come?” He said: “Never, Allah will reveal the time of his Reappearance in such a way that our Shias can know it!” I asked: “Why is it so, my master?” He replied: “It is the same Hour regarding which Allah says:””

“They ask thee about the (final) Hour - when will be its appointed time? Say: “The knowledge thereof is with my Lord (alone). None but He can reveal as to when it will occur. Heavy were its burden through the heavens and the earth. Only, all of a sudden will it come to you.”[The Quran, Surah 7, Verse 187]”

(Ithbat al-hudat, vol. 5, p. 143 and p. 216

Al-dhaam al Naseb, vol. 1, p.90)


People’s remarkable dialogues!

After the Reappearance, the moments of the return:

Imam Sadiq (PBUH) says: “When Imam Mahdi rises, some of our Shiites would be resurrected by God while carrying swords on their shoulders. When it is heard by our Shiites who are alive at that time, they give each other the glad tidings that: such and such and such have been resurrected from their tombs and are with Al-Qāʾim (PBUH).”

On the other side, when it is heard by our enemies, they say:  “Oh, you the Shiites! What lies you tell?! No, by Allah, they haven’t been resurrected and would not be even till the day of resurrection!”

This is God’s promise which says:

“They solemnly swear by Allah that Allah will never raise the dead to life. No, surely the promise of Allah is binding upon Him, though most people do not know.” [The Quran, Surah 6, Verse 38].

(Al-Burhan Fi Tafsir al-Quran, vol. 3, p. 420

Al-Kafi, vol. 8, p. 51)


The value of patience while awaiting for Imam Mahdi (PBUH)

Imam Hussein (PBUH) has said:

“In our family there will be 12 Mahdis, the 1st is Amir Al-Mumenin Ali ibn Abi Talib (PBUH) and the last one is the 9th progeny in my generation. He is the Imam Qa’im for the right (he will stand for the justice). God will vitalize the earth thorough him, and God will make the true religion conquer over all religions by his hand.

He will be hidden for some time that some nations will divert from their faith. (But) a few will be loyal to him and get bothered! They will be asked:

❄️ “When will this promise come to pass if ye speak the truth?” [The Quran, Surah 10, Verse 48]

“Be aware that anyone who is “patient” for that torment and denial, in that time of occultation, he would be like the one who did fight along Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) with his sword.”

(Ithbat-al-hudat, volume2, page 51 and 88؛ Kamal-al-din, volume1, page 317.)


The sweet wish of Prophet Lot

Imam Sadiq (PBUH) said: “When Prophet Lot told his people:”

“Would that I had power to suppress you or that I could betake myself to some powerful support.” [The Quran, Surah 11, Verse 80]

“He wished he had ability of Qa’im (PBUH) and he mentioned the steadfast of his companions! Since one of his (Imam Mahdi (PBUH)) companion, has the strength of forty men and his heart is firmer than a piece of iron…”
