The history of the Opening of the BBS Satellite Station
In January 2017 AbaSadiq (as) started to announce to the opening of the Black Banners Satellite Station on Social Media.
In December 2017 the opening of the Station via Nilesat finally took place. The official satellite station of Imam Al-Mahdi (as) was on air!
Content was aired 24/7 and later on livestreamed on Facebook and Youtube, too. In the beginning English programs were aired only on Sundays, but just a couple of weeks later Arabic and English were more balanced.
Until today various formats of presentation have evolved ranging from documentaries, to talkshows, to newsshows, just as diverse as the production team.
The Sayha, the loudest and clearest shout of truth
Of course many instantly began to discuss the parallel between the phenomenom of the "Sayha" - a shout from the sky mentioned in the ahadith which proclaims the arrival of the Mahdi - and the opening of the satellite channel.
Some people said it's crazy to believe that the Satellite channel of Imam Mahdi (as) shall be the Sayha (the call or shout from the sky). But did they also ask themselves how shall the world receive the warning before it's end comes? How shall Imam Mahdi (as) reach all the people of the world at once?
Did they believe that Imam Mahdi (as) will stand with his horse and a script role on a market place and preach while the people pass by, or he visits each one at his door and tells him the last warning?
The prophets and messengers were always talking to the people in their language... if it was Musa (as), he used magic like the people of his time used to talk about religion and he showed everyone that the One God has just the real ability... if it was Muhammed (sawas) he brought the Qur'an in the form of the poets of his time and he showed them that the One God has the ability and the truth... so what about Imam Mahdi (as) coming in a time of globalization and mass media as a mean of communication? Isn't it so easy to believe that Imam Mahdi (as) will talk to the people in the language they are using? Is the world not communicating just through the media like facebook, twitter, TV? And is a Satellite not sending signals from the sky? Of course Imam Mahdi (as) will talk to the people in their language and by the means they have and understand. And this is a mercy of Allah (swt) because he made it easy for us to understand and grasp fast.
If the Ahlul Bayt were talking about a satellite channel, nobody would have understood what is meant, they had to describe it as "shout from the sky". Notice that many other prophecies if the future were speaking in a descriptive way, like the term "iron birds" was used to describe air planes.
So yes, also the world today is shown in it's own language that the One God has the ability and the truth to announce who is His vicegerent on earth at the given time.
How much time do you think is left until the Outcry (Sayha)?
Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan was once asked on Paltalk...
Mohammed Make: "How much time do you think is left until the outcry (sayha)? Determine the time if you can."
Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) answered as foon_mik...
"Which outcry do you mean? If you mean an outcry that is a material celestial shouting sound, then you will not hear it until this world (dunya) ends[...]" They have portrayed it to you this way so that you won't support Imam Mahdi (as). They are fooling you unfortunately. Pay attention to your religion, may Allah grant you success. Don't let anyone fool you and deceive you. Not everyone who wears the black and the white and who has a long beard is truthful and a believer. By Allah, we have not come except for saving you from this indignity and humiliation, by the command of Allah Almighty." - See Paltalk transcript from June 19th, 2017 as pdf
The Greater Sayha is an appearance with image and voice of the Imam (as)
In December 2017 AbaSadiq (as) promised a great promise...
that this satellite channel will air the very first speech, in audio and video, of Imam Mahdi (pbuhahf) and his Vicegerent the first Mahdi Imam Ahmed al-Hassan (pbuh)...
Exerpts from what Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) said in a Paltalk session on Nov 5th, 2017:
"...The Greater Sayha (the Outcry which is mentioned in the narrations of Ahlul Bayt (as) is soon inshaAllah.
If you hear my voice in this time it would be a fitna to the Ansar, but if you hear our voice with our picture then it would not be a fitna to the Ansar. The solution is the voice with the picture.
A guest by the name Bahaa’ al-Ghoraify asked: Master you did not answer, the Sayha is soon, when is soon?!
So Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) said: I said to you soon through the Black Banners of the East Satellite Channel inshaAllah
Very very very soon.
It will be opened soon by the enforcement of the Creator the Almighty."
The guest Bahaa’ al-Ghoraify said: "You, and I, and the owner of this live stream, do not know when is the Sayha, but the Yamani knows when is the Sayha. I want an answer. Do not say soon soon."
So Imam Ahmed al-Hassan (as) said: "We are a people who do not determine a time. The ones who determine a time are liars. If one of the previous Prophets or Imams a.s had determined a time I would have done the same to you." - See Paltalk transcript as pdf
Note as an explanation of the Imam's words here:
Ahlul Bayt (as) have mentioned several times that they do not determine a time. The following are just two examples of many Hadiths about this:
Aba Abdillah al-Sadiq a.s. said: “The ones who determine a time are liars, and the ones who are in a rush are destroyed, and the ones who submit are rescued and to us they turn. We have not determined a time in the past, and we will not determine a time in the future.” - Mo’jam Ahadith Imam al-Mahdi (a.s) Volume 3 Page 370
Abi Baseer said: I asked Aba Abdillah a.s. about the Qa’im a.s. So he a.s. replied: The ones who determine a time are liars. We Ahlul Bayt do not determine a time.” - Al-Kafi Volume 1 Page 368
