The rise of Imam Huá¹£ayn (pbuh) wasnât not limited in time and space.
As supporting ImÄm Huá¹£ayn (pbuh) meant fighting in the “battlefront of Karbala”, supporting á¸¤ojjat ibn al- Haá¹£an1 [ImÄm ZamÄn (mgehr)] is through taking part in the “soft war of knowledge and culture.”
ÄshÅ«rÄii companions not only werenât afraid of being wounded by swords and spears, but also they welcomed the martyrdom with smiles.
Tehran 04January_Major General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Iranâs Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the second-in-command of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), have been assassinated in US airstrikes in the Iraqi capital Baghdad.
When His Excellency Ê¿AlÄ« (pbuh) showed those brevities and sacrifices in in the Battle of Uhud1, Gabriel called,”Ø§ÙØ§Ø³ÛÙ Ø§ÙÙØ§ Ø¯ÙØ§ÙÙÙØ§Ø±Ø ÙÙØ§ ÙØªÛ Ø§ÙÙØ§ Ø¹ÙÛ”2 And the people who were present, heard it from the skyâ¦
Zayd ibn Wahab3 told Ibn MasÅ«d4, âÊ¿AlÄ« resistance in Uhud was the matter of marvel!â
Ibn Masud reacted, âYou are not the only one who wonders! Even the other angels were verily marveled! Havenât you heard that while he was ascending to sky, Gabriel called, “Ø§ÙØ§Ø³ÛÙ Ø§ÙÙØ§ Ø¯ÙØ§ÙÙÙØ§Ø±Ø ÙÙØ§ ÙØªÛ Ø§ÙÙØ§ Ø¹ÙÛ?!
Although there is not any available, and clearly explicit biography of ImÄm MahdÄ« (mgehr)âs mother, based on the well- known assumption_ from some narrations_ she played the role of a slave who had been captured in the war, in order to join ImÄm AskarÄ« (pbuh)âs respected family at last. [It had been planned before, by ImÄm AskarÄ« (pbuh)âs father; ImÄm HÄdÄ« (pbuh) in order to save her. Then she married ImÄm AskarÄ«, as she had dreamt it in a heavenly dream.]
It has been narrated that after Prophet Joseph (pbuh) returned to Canaan, Prophet Jacob (pbuh) insisted him to tell his story,
So Joseph (pbuh) told the story till when “His brothers took off his clothes and threw him into the well”
At this time Prophet Jacob (pbuh) fainted!!

With his martyrdom,
Imam Huá¹£ayn (pbuh) disgraced Umayyad government. And this led to its destruction at last.
Likewise, by his emergence, ImÄm ZamÄn (mgehr) will cause a disgrace in all of the oppressing government in the world.
If you have doubts about the event [The Emergence], you will become sure by: seeing âProphet of God (pbuh&h)âs promise, the flag, the armâ1, and one of ImÄm Huá¹£ayn (pbuh)âs offspring âNafs al- Zakiyyahâ. But if you have doubts again, you will become definite by hearing âThe Divine Call2â which calls upon his [ImÄm MahdÄ« (mgehr)âs] name and his divine duty3. (TafsÄ«r al- Najashi, Volume 1, Page 65)
There isnât any valid account of âThe goal of Nafs al- Zakiyyah by his activities which will lead him to martyrdomâ! Therefore, the following cases arenât conclusive:
1-Â Â Â He will be sent to Mecca by ImÄm al -ËAsre [ImÄm ZamÄn (mgehr)], in order to give ultimatum1. So, they wonât later have any excuse not to help the ImÄm (mgehr).
SaÊ¿d b. Ê¿Abd AllÄh said:
Â [Once] Aá¸¥mad b. Isá¸¥Äq and I were sitting in the presence of ImÄm AskarÄ« (pbuh).
I had some questions, [but] the ImÄm stated, âAsk my dear [then he pointed to His Excellency MahdÄ« (mgehr)].
