Before the conflicts [which were previously mentioned] happen, His Excellency MahdÄ« (mgehr) will give ultimatum SufyanÄ« and his followers, based on his divine message.
[In this regard], ImÄm SadÄ«q (pbuh) stated:
Â ImÄm MahdÄ« (mgehr) will invite them, and reminds them his truthfulness. He will inform them that he is oppressed and his right will have been usurped, by force.
He will state, âWhoever bickers me over God, [must know that], I am the most deserving and nearest to Godâ¦â
However, SufyanÄ« will disobey The Excellency. Yet, The Excellency will set off to cleanse the world from his existence.
[The collector: In some narrations, they refer to SufyanÄ«âs obedience, transferring allegiance, and repentance for his activities. But, their documents arenât acceptable.]
