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.]
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:

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)].

After suppressing the opponents, SufyanÄ« and his large army, will rush into Iraq. So they will head Iraq. When they reach toQirq (Acity in Syria where khabur and Euphrates rivers meet) there will happen a battle and many people will be killed! Perhaps the reasonof such a decimation, is resisting the rulers of the land against SufyanÄ«âs avarice.
According to an authentic hadith by ImÄm SadÄ«q (pbuh), âAfter SufyanÄ« occupies the safe zones [Damascus, Homs, Palestine, Chalcis ad Belum [in Halab]and Jordan], he will run for nine monthsâ¦â (Al- Ghaybah, TÅ«sÄ«, Ibid, 452)
