Imam of the Time in the Words of Imam Ali (PBUH)

ghadir khom

As the successor of the Prophet (PBUH), Imam Ali informs people of an absent Imam from among his descendents who will make world full of justice and remove injustice.

How beautiful it is to combine the event of Ghadir with the words of Imam Ali on his grandson Mahdi.

1. Forgiving

He is so forgiving

2. Shelter

He is a strong shelter

3. Ideal of the good-doers

Whoever comprehends him will find him a glorious light which is an ideal for good-doer 

4. Savior of the Mankind

He breaks all chains and terminates the exploitation of man by man

5. Justice Expander

Imam Ali (PBUH) told his son Hussein (PBUH): “O Hussein! The ninth of your children is a righteous revolutionary. He clarifies the religion and expands justice.”‌

6. Rejoicing

The crowds on earth and heaven are rejoiced by his coming

7. Reward for Steadfast believers

“There will be a long absence for our Imam and beware, those steadfast in their religion whose hearts never darkens by his long absence, they will be on my side in the heaven on the Judgment Day”‌

8. Praying for Him

“O God! Make his occultation and reappearance the end for all sadness and remove all difference and enmity by him”‌.

Ghadir means swearing allegiance to Imamate for which Ali (PBUH) is the symbol and Mahdi is the last.

There is a basic question here:

Are we ready to accept the Imam of the Time or our benefits and lust makes us lose the way?!

Are we among those preparing for the green and beautiful future through knowledge and self-education?!
