In His Name And With The Remembrance Of His Last Hujjat (a.t.f.s.)
You may have, perhaps, come across individuals who in their mind conjure that the holy being of Imam-e-Zamana (a.t.f.s.) is like that person who will wield his sword blindly, will set off rivers of blood, will chop-off heads and will go on a carnage. More upsetting than this is the fact that these individuals pass-on their own way of thinking and blatantly erring mindset to others and thus tamper the benevolent being and the justice oriented persona of Imam (a.s.) in the minds and thoughts of others. Consequently, they instill fear in a large portion with regards to Imam’s (a.s.) blessed reappearance, which dissuades them to pray for his reappearance.
This is a big cruelty on a personality whose being is all about love, affection, compassion and mercy. Even certain religious individuals jokingly or due to lack of attention say negative things about Imam (a.s.). For instance they talk about Imam-e-Zamana’s sword slicing their throats or someone else’s.

They discovered that 70 out of 100 students didn’t want Imam-e-Zamana (a.s.) to reappear. When they were asked the reasons for not wanting Imam (a.s.) to reappear, they said, “If Imam-e-Zamana (a.s.) comes he will behead us.”
This is a situation where one wants to shed tears of blood and wishes to tear the heart out. Can anything more distressing be imagined than this? Continue reading
