“To Allah we belong, and to Him is our return”
If your view is like some deviated illiterates that impiety and injustice should be propagated to prepare the way for the Reappearance of Imam Mahdi (PBUH), then “To Allah we belong, and to Him is our return”!
Don’t say leave it till Imam Mahdi (PBUH) comes. Do you postpone your prayers till Imam Mahdi (PBUH) comes? [If saying the prayers is this way, so undoubtedly] The “preservation of Islam” is more necessary than prayers. Do not follow the logic of the governor of Khumain who said: “Sins and crimes should be prevailed so Imam Mahdi (PBUH) coms!”
[Which verse has commanded to commit a sin?!]
The Sahifeh of Imam Khomeini, vol. 21, p. 447
The Guardianship of the Islamic Jurist, Imam Khomeini, p. 58
Imam Mahdi (PBUH) doesn’t come, he should be brought…
Haj Ismail Dulabi says: “It seems that he (Imam Mahdi (PBUH)) comes, but actually we will be admitted to the presence of him. We went behind the walls of the world and got lost, we should come out behind the walls to find out that he (Imam Mahdi (PBUH)) was present from the outset. Imam Mahdi (PBUH) has not gotten lost and hidden. We have gotten lost and hidden.”
Misbah al-Huda, p. 319
It has been narrated from Lady Fatimah (PBUH) that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “An Imam is like the Kaaba that people should go towards it, not that they wait for an Imam to come towards them.”
Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 36, p. 353
He won’t come till we want…
We should just start from ourselves…

The absent guide…
Allameh Tabatabai says in response to the question that how we can profit the absent Imam: “The Imam performs his duty of guiding people in two ways: 1- guidance as showing the way; 2- guidance as attaining to the goal.”
“For the first type, the presence of the Imam among people is necessary, but for the second type, he doesn’t need to be among people. In other words, as the Imam takes charge of exoteric guidance of the people, he has the duty of esoteric guidance of the inner aspect of human action. The Imam watches over men inwardly and is in communion with the soul and spirit of men.”
Shia in Islam, p. 236
You’re among the crowd and I’m thinking/ Where should I go to find you
Grand Ayatollah Khamenei’s complaint of cultural directors
I expect the people in charge of the “cultural affairs of the country” more, I expect the cultural atmosphere of the country not to be such that someone acts neglectfully or impudently toward Imam Mahdi (PBUH)!
Look out many thousands or many millions of people who recite Nudbah prayer every Friday all over the country, youth shed tears, look out what people do on the Mid-Sha'ban!
Something is wrong that someone in the cultural atmosphere of the country neglects or dares to insult Imam Mahdi (PBUH) and the belief in him this way! I expect “official cultural directors” to “seriously” reconsider and find out their fault!
Khutbah of the Jumu'ah (Friday( prayer, October 01, 1999
The seal of the successors in the Sunni scholars viewpoint
Ayatollah Bahjat says:
“Most of the Sunni scholars, especially the Sunni mystics, have admitted the seal of the successors. Even Sadr al-Din al-Qunawi, Muhy al-Din’s student, writes in his testament:”
“If you see Imam Mahdi (PBUH), learn knowledge from him and don’t overtake him and don’t hear anyone else.”
In Bahjat’s Company, no. 1097
The partner in deeds
Haj Ismail Dulabi says:
“Don’t you know that Imam Mahdi (PBUH) is our partner in all our good deeds? Because these good deeds are his intentions. Whoever says two Rakats prayers… He is partner in that and he is a good partner. If he wasn’t partner, nothing would be accepted from you, the acceptance of your deed is because of his partnership.”
“He is the spirit of the Universe. You suppose beauty and gaiety of your soul is yours? It’s his. Peace be upon you, O! you, the spirit of the Universe. Imam Mahdi (PBUH) is partner of the prophets, he is partner of the Quran.”
Tubaye Mohebbat book, vol. 3, p. 48
Rectification of minds and hearts
As the world is filled with oppression as of now, it will be filled the same with justice. But managing and controlling this justice is not in our power. We will reach a dead-end at that point. Imam won’t need any fight and argument and drum and bugle at that point.
He will come and lead. It won’t be like we open fire, they (the enemy) attack us and we attack back and conquer them and spill blood all over the world. We deal with the minds of people who will use this weapon. We don’t deal with the plane that throws atomic bombs, we deal with the mind of that pilot.
“The honorable scholar Ayatollah Elahi”
The book Elahiah, p. 163
Warning, lest at any time…!
All the army of the gaurdians, all organizations, all committees and all kinds of people who want to serve this country, bear in mind that all of them serve Islam…
You are an employee of Islam, an employee of Imam Mahdi (PBUH). Be careful that “you should not make a mistake in the opposite direction of Islam!” This is a crucial task for all; for us and for you.
The Sahifeh-of Imam Khomeini, v. 11, p. 249
The eye, ear, hand and tongue of Allah
Ayatollah Bahjat says:
“Ahl-al-Bayt are the people who their knowledge and veracity is sweeping. Implying that their infallibility will do no wrong and no sin. Imam Mahdi (PBUH) is indeed the vigilant eye of Allah, the hearing ear of Allah, the expressive tongue of Allah and the powerful hand of Allah. And he is aware of what we do, what we believe and what we think. We do not consider Imam Mahdi (PBUH) as an observant to our deeds… and we are completely neglectful of him.”
In Bahjat’s Company, number 23
A very nice and moving word…
The late Haj Ismail Dulabi:
“Our awaiting is not the way that makes them come to us, nor is our behavior the way that we go towards him and see him. If you are truly awaiting, then why haven’t you been emaciated (by hard effort for his Reappearance)? As soon as you become a real awaiting person, he will come. Is it good to be this much indifferent? If your friend arrives an hour late from a trip, you would get restless. If you’re an awaiting person then where are the outcomes?”
We have three types of awaiting:
1-Someone who, out of long absence, remembers the Imam and awaits for his meeting to see effects.
2-Someone who has seen a trace of Imam, that it is said: “Imam Mahdi’s (PBUH) comfort is your own comfort.” It means that awaiting and praying for the Reappearance brings you a way out (of your difficulties).
3-If awaiting and affection attains perfection, seeing the Imam or not doesn’t affect his certainty and he will see the Imam all the time with his heart. Like Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Uwais al-Qarani who didn’t see each another at all, but were never separate.
Imam Sajjad (PBUH) has also said about this: “Real awaiting people during the Occultation are superior to the people of all times; because they have been granted so much wisdom and insight by Allah that the absence and presence doesn’t make any difference to them.”
