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.]
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).
In one or two narrations, they named [Al- Nafs] âMuá¸¥ammad ibn al- Haá¹£anâ. But because they are weak in terms of document, they arenât reliable.
In most narrations, he wasnât pointed to by his real name. He was just pointed to, by the title or kind of that. They are such as:
1-Â Â Â Al- Nafs: This refers to the very Nafs al- Zakiyyah.Â
ZakÅ«t [literally] means purity, growth and evolution. Therefore, Zakiyyah probably has two meaning:
1-Â Â Â Pure (which means, a person who hasnât committed sin since her/ his birthday).
2-Â Â Â A perfect person, learned and eminent.
To confirm the first meaning, SalmÄn narrated, âBe aware! A person with a pure and innocent Nafs [ego/soul] will come, who will be killed between Rukn and MaqÄm
Do you know how much efforts have been made in the history of IslÄm, to fulfil the divine universal government?
Prophet Muá¸¥ammad (pbuh&h)âs BeËthat [prophetic mission] was an introduction for the globalization of IslÄm. The other introduction for globalization of IslÄm was âEvent of GhadÄ«r Khum1â.
The Event of Ê»ÄshÅ«rÄ was the clearest sample of the efforts and concerns by ImÄm Huá¹£ayne (pbuh) and his companions, for globalization and internationalization of IslÄmâ¦
If We wish We will send down to them a sign from the sky before which their heads will remain bowed in humility. (SÅ«rat Al- ShuÊ¿arÄ/ Verse 4)
Among Aá¸¥ÄdÄ«th, there are 9 narrations which agree that the above verse refers to The Divine Call. Five of them are authentic documents. I respectfully draw your attention to this reliable narration:
Some Mahdavi books whose names are in the form of The allegories and similes, are as follows:
1-Â Â Â âOsÄre ye- Khelqatâ by Ayatullah JawÄdÄ« Amoli,
2-Â Â Â âNegin e Äfarineshâ by a group of the authors,
3-Â Â Â âÄkharin Omiidâ by DÄwood ElhÄmi,
God has willed to keep him [Imam Mahdi (p.b.u.h)] alive. Because (from the first to the last prophets (p.b.u.Th)), no one except him could have taken it; to expand justice all around the world. This is what prophets (p.b.u.Th) didnât finish, although they had been sent for it.
âThere was a group who believed âAny government which sets up in the occultation era, is void and against Islam!âThey assumed it refers to âany kind of governmentâ. But those narrations say, âthe ones which rise as âMahdavÄ« governmentâ are void.They donât realize or have knowledge about what they say;
