The way of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) is currently being abundantly experienced in the End Times. But a great many people are unaware of it. Perhaps even Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) himself is unaware of it. Do you see Allah’s artistry and perfection in the test? Were there no test, there would be no beauty or anything left. Paradise would be meaningless and hell would be meaningless and life would be meaningless, something totally flat. We would literally be just like robots. Allah has created the most perfect state. There can be no other way. A test without pain is no test at all. How can there be a test without pain? The test has to include all kinds of pain.
They are very few in number but are of great respect before Allah, Majestic is Whose mention. They follow the leaders [Imams] of religion. … The statements of the leaders [the Imam (pbuh)] that are difficult to understand for others are soft and easy for them to understand. (Al-Kafi, H 887, Ch. 79, h 3)
Some people ignore the hadiths about Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh), but the followers of Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) can easily accept them, it says.
It is necessary for the person in charge of this task [Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh)] to disappear from the public sight and in his disappearance from public sight he must remain away from public. How good is Tayba, the city of Madina, for dwelling and living with thirty people is not frightening isolation. (Al-Kafi, H 903, Ch. 80, h 16)
He will definitely disappear or be imprisoned or else hide away of his own free will. He will act with 30 followers, it says. He will work on books, and perhaps on CDs. He will have a scholarly team of 30 people and will work in a house or somewhere like that, and the public will see him little, at first he will be seen very little, it says in the hadith. The place where he will withdraw to disappear from public sight is a most lovely one.A nice house, a nice place, a pleasant house, perhaps in a much admired house. And he has a fine group of 30 colleagues, a scholarly team, and his being with them means he is not alone, it says in the hadith.
He will be admitted only by believers who swore devotion to Allah in the sphere beyond this world.
Before coming to this world we swore devotion to Allah in the sphere beyond this world. Before souls ever came to this world. They do not know, but instinctively follow Hazrat Mahdi (pbuh) at Allah’s command. Many people can currently feel Hazrat Mahdi’s (pbuh) presence, but his followers immediately go and find him from the sphere beyond this world where they swore to Allah, and they do not leave him. They have sworn in the Presence of Allah.
Everyone dies. Life is very short. Look at photos taken in the previous century, how happy people look. Children play in the streets, women are very content, some people play in the fields and enjoy themselves. The thousands of people seen in these photos are all gone now, not one remains, they are all dead. Nothing is left, not the children in their laps, the horses and other animals there, nothing, they are all dead. If you told them at that time, they would wonder what you were talking about. But time passes very quickly and is soon over. It is over in the blink of an eye. Almighty Allah issues warnings in this way, with the unexpected deaths of young people in the End Times. They can try to forget it all they like, but Allah always prevents them from forgetting it. Allah visits sickness upon them, for instance. A minor illness arises, and at once the fear of death fills them. A mole develops on their bodies and they immediately develop a terror of cancer. It is obvious to us all how spoiled people would be were it not for these things, how predisposed they would be to this world and to self love. We can all see how prone they would be to arrogance, pride and anger. Allah creates events in order to prevent that. And just a hint of them suffices. Allah produces them in just the right measure. Sickness, troubles, sorrows and death produce only the outcomes that Allah desires. People become partly capable of thought. There can be no test any other way. Otherwise life would be flat and meaningless. Either you have the test, in which case the world will be very lovely and bright, the life of paradise, or else the world will be totally flat. That is why Allah has created the test. Allah knows what we will do in the test. But we do not know what we will do. Allah thus shows us what we are.2011-02-13 19:43:24
