Refund of Loan on Reappearance of Imam

imam mahdi (a.s)

Someone decided to tease Bahlool on the belief of the concealed 12th Imam and his reappearance one day to establish a rule of equity and justice throughout the world.

In a sitting where Bahlool was also present, he said this to him: "Don't you cherish the belief that your Imam (the 12th Imam Hazrat Mahdi (A.F) will reappear in the end of time and establish a rule of justice? if you are firm on this belief, why not loan to me now five hundred dinars and I shall repay when your Imam reappears."

In reply, Bahlool told him:

"Undoubtedly this is my belief and I am willing to loan you the money on a condition. And it is this that you provide a guarantee that you will not then be transformed into a pig or a dog. Should you then become so, from whom shall I recover my money?"

Hearing this, those present raised a big laughter and the one who was out to tease Bahlool became dumbfounded.

And Bahlool lifting his stick left the place and went away. Recognizing the Imam of the age is so important and essential that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) had said:

"He who dies without recognizing the Imam of his age is like the one who died during the jahiliyya (the pagan era before me advent of Islam) to die during jahiliyya means a death devoid of Islam and faith.
