Imam Mahdi in the Quran 01

0 61

Alif Lam Mim, this is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for the pious – those who believe in the unseen.

02:03

Subject: Faith in the Unseen Proof and the Certainty of Appearance

Imam Al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) said : “- As for the unseen, it is the Hidden Proof (Imam Mahdi -may God hasten his noble relief)”1

Al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) regarding the saying of Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, ‘those who believe in the unseen,’ he said: ‘It is those who acknowledge the uprising of the Qa’im (may God hasten his noble relief), that indeed he is certain…'”2

The narrator says: I asked Imam Sadiq about the verse: “Alif Lam Mim, this is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for the pious – those who believe in the unseen.” He replied, “The pious, who are the followers of Imam Ali, and by ‘unseen’ it means the Hidden Proof -Imam Mahdi-. And this is affirmed by the words of God: ‘Say: ‘The unseen belongs only to God. Await, and I too will be awaiting with you.'”

In another narration from him, it is stated: “Faith in the unseen means acknowledging the rightful uprising of the Qa’im.”

Notes: Faith in the unseen is like a threshold or gateway. By stepping through it, one transcends the animalistic level confined to sensory perceptions and ascends to a higher state of humanity, realizing that existence extends beyond the tangible world.

According to traditions, one of the most significant implications of “the unseen” is the belief in the “Hidden Proof that is Imam Mahd ” and the certainty of his appearance.

Among the most significant dangers and risks facing those awaiting during the Occultation are doubt and skepticism about the existence and emergence of Imam Mahdi, which may stem from two factors:

1. The prolonged duration of the Occultation;

2. The sowing of doubts by enemies.
