Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq said:
When our Qaim appears he will face things from the ignorant (of his own time) that out Prophet (saas) did not face from the ignorant of the society of ignorance.
Fuzail asked:How will that be? And he said:
When our Prophet (saas) came, people used to worship stones and idols they carved themselves. HOWEVER, WHEN OUR QAIM APPEARS, PEOPLE WILL EXPLAIN AWAY AND INTERPRET ALLAH’S BOOK AGAINST HIM. AND THEY WILL PRODUCE EVIDENCE AGAINST HIM FROM THE BOOK OF ALLAH.
