The Law of Knowing the Vicegerent of God (Hujjah)

From Ahmed Al-Hassan Wiki

"Indeed the earth is never devoid of one who rises for Allah with a proof, either openly and publicly, or fearfully in secret, in order that Allah’s proofs and signs should not perish. How many are they and where are they? By Allah, they are few in number, but they are the greatest in esteem before Allah.

Through them Allah guards His proofs and signs until they entrust them to others like them and sow the seeds thereof in the hearts of those who are similar to them. Knowledge has led them to real understanding and so they have associated themselves with the spirit of conviction. They find easy what those living in ease regard as hard.

They are familiar with what the ignorant find oppressive. They live in this world with their bodies here but their souls are attached to the highest station. They are the vicegerents of Allah on His earth and the callers to His religion. How I yearn to see them!”

- Nahj al-Balaghah, Hikmah no.146.

Acknowledging Imam is belief.jpg

Allah The Almighty, The Wise always has appointed a caliph on his earth who guides the people towards Him (swt). And out of His mercy He (swt) has given us a universal law to identify His trustee on earth in each era.

God The Almighty and Wise informed mankind about 3 conditions which a divinely appointed vicegerent must fulfill, which are comprised in the "Law of Knowing the Hujjah" meaning the personified proof of God on His earth:

1. The Will: No divine vicegerent passed away without appointing his successor. The claimant must therefore be mentioned in the will of his predecessor.

2. God-given knowledge: Every prophet and messenger has God-given knowledge, which enables him to administrate the earth. Everyone who claims to be sent by God, is capable of answering every question and mystery known and unknown to man.

3. Call to the Banner of the Supremacy of Allah (God's sovereignty): A messenger of God speaks in God's name. He must not call the people to himself unlike the non-working scholars, but rather must lead people to true monotheism and to not-associating anything with Allah.

Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) fulfills the three aforementioned conditions because he brought forth the will of Prophet Muhammed (sawas), he is constantly disseminating God-given knowledge, and calls to the Supremacy of God (swt) meaning true monotheism under the Banner of the Supremacy of Allah.
Consequently 'The Law of Knowing the Hujjah' proves that Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) is the infallible vicegerent of God of our time, to whom pledging allegiance is obligatory. If it is proven to you that he is infallible, then you must submit to him. Our command is to know the Infallible Imam of the time and submit to him.

'The Law of Recognizing the Vicegerent of God' in the Holy Quran

'The Law of Knowing the Hujjah' is mentioned in the Quran, for with the first caliph of Allah on earth this law was placed, and it is the law of how to recognise Allah's caliph and Hujjah (proof) over his creation. It is the law of recognizing your lord, because by recognizing Allah's Hujjah, Allah (swt) is known.

Therefore let us look at the verses which talk about the appointment of the first caliph of Allah (swt) on earth Prophet Adam (as) in the Holy Quran:

{When your Lord said to the angels: “I will create a Caliph (Successor) on earth.” They said "Will You place upon it one who causes corruption therein and sheds blood, while we declare Your praise and sanctify You?" Allah said, "Indeed, I know that which you do not know.} - Holy Quran 30:2

And the fact that this caliph is the most knowledgeable has been clarified in the following verse:

{And He taught Adam the names - all of them. Then He showed them to the angels and said, "Inform Me of the names of these, if you are truthful."} - Holy Quran 30:31

And the command to obey that caliph is found in the following verse, which says:

{When I have fashioned him (in due proportion) and breathed into him of My spirit, fall down to him in prostration”} - Holy Quran 15:29

Also whoever refers to the Torah and the Gospels will find many verses which exactly match this Quranic Law, which states that Allah’s caliph is recognized by those three things.
So who is the executor of the Prophet (sawas), and who is the most knowledgeable after the Prophet of Allah, and who was the one that the Prophet of Allah commanded the people to obey?
There must be a person, who possesses those three things, otherwise whoever says there is not, is accusing God of a lack of wisdom. It is upon the individual to find out the answer to this question. And may people do justice to themselves.

"The Law of Recognizing the Vicegerent of God" in the Bible and Torah

In the following quotes from the Bible will prove that the prophets and messengers (pbuh) exerted all three components of this Divine Law, to prove their legitimacy and truthfulness.

The will: Prophets who directly appointed or prophesied their sucessors

Everyone who is looking for the truth, will find numerous proofs that the prophets and messengers indeed did appoint their successors.

Before we go into the examples of the prophets who appointed their successor directly by naming them, let us look at the following unknown but interesting hadith which illustrates 'the principle of successive wills' :

"It is narrated from Abu Abdullah that Imam Jafar Al Sadiq (pbuh) said:

The Messenger of Allah (pbuhap) said: I am the Master of the Prophets and my guardian is the Master of the Guardians, and his guardians are the Masters of the Guardians. Adam (pbuh) has asked Allah to make for him a virtuous guardian so Allah revealed to him: O Adam, I have honored the Prophets with prophethood then I chose my creation and made the best of them guardians...
Then Allah revealed to him: O Adam will to Sheith, so Adam willed to Sheith and he is Hibatuh-Allah, the son of Adam.
Then Sheith willed to his son Shabban, he is the son of Nazla, the good woman that Allah has descended on Adam from heaven to wed her to his son Sheith. Shabban willed to Mujalith, and Mujalith willed to Mahooq, and Mahooq willed to Ghathmisha..., and Ghathmisha willed to Akhnokh who is Idrees the Prophet (pbuh), and Idrees willed to Nahoor, and Nahoor gave it Noah the Prophet (pbuh), and Noah willed to Sam, and Sam willed to Athamir, and Athamir willed to Bareithasha, and Bareithasha willed to yafith, and Yafith willed to Birra, and Birra willed to Javseeh, and Javseeh willed to Omran..., and Omran gave it to Ibraheem the Friend of the Merciful, and Ibraheem willed to his son Ismaeel, and Ismaeel willed to Isaac, and Isaac willed to Jacob, and Jacob willed to Joseph, and Joseph willed to Bathreya, and Bathreya willed to Shuaib (pbuh), and Shuaib gave it to Musa ibn Omran (pbuh), and Musa ibn Omran (pbuh) willed to Joshua ibn Noon..., and Joshua bin Noon willed to David (pbuh), and David (pbuh) willed to Sulaiman (pbuh), and Sulaiman willed to Asif ibn Barkhiya, and Asif ibn Barkhiya willed to Zackariah (pbuh), and Zackariah gave it to Jesus ibn Mariam (pbuh) and Jesus willed to Shamoon bin Hamoon AlSafa, and Shamoon willed to Yahya ibn Zackariah, and Yahya ibn Zackariah willed to Munthir, and Munthir willed to Sulaimah, and Sulaimah willed to Bardah..."

Then the Messenger of Allah said: and Burda gave it to me, and I give it to you O Ali, and you give it to your guardian, and your guardian gives it to your guardians of your sons, one after the other until it is given to the best of the people of the earth after you. The people will disbelieve in you and they will extremely differ on you. Who is maintained on your side is like who abodes with me, and who deviates from you is in hell, as hell is the dwelling of the disbelievers." - Al-Amali by Sheikh Al-Sadooq: p.486

Now let us look at some well-known examples...

Moses (as) appointed Joshua (as)

{14 And the Lord said unto Moses, Behold, thy days approach that thou must die: call Joshua, and present yourselves in the tabernacle of the congregation, that I may give him a charge. And Moses and Joshua went, and presented themselves in the tabernacle of the congregation. 15 And the Lord appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of a cloud: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the tabernacle.} - 5th book of Moses (Deuteronomy), chapter 31

David (as) appointed Salomon (as)

{32 And king David said, Call me Zadok the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada. And they came before the king. 33 The king also said unto them, Take with you the servants of your lord, and cause Solomon my son to ride upon mine own mule, and bring him down to Gihon: 34 And let Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet anoint him there king over Israel: and blow ye with the trumpet, and say, God save king Solomon. 35 Then ye shall come up after him, that he may come and sit upon my throne; for he shall be king in my stead: and I have appointed him to be ruler over Israel and over Judah. 36 And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada answered the king, and said, Amen: the Lord God of my lord the king say so too. 37 As the Lord hath been with my lord the king, even so be he with Solomon, and make his throne greater than the throne of my lord king David.} - Kings 1, Chapter 1

{2 Now the days of David drew nigh that he should die; and he charged Solomon his son, saying, 2 I go the way of all the earth: be thou strong therefore, and shew thyself a man; 3 And keep the charge of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself: 4 That the Lord may continue his word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said he) a man on the throne of Israel.} - Kings 1, Chapter 2

Moses (as) prophesied Jesus (as) and Mohammed

Some prophets indirectly appointed their successor through prophesying him.

{1 And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death. 2 And he said, The Lord came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them. 3 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in thy hand: and they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of thy words.} - 5. Book Moses (Deuteronomy), Chapter 33

And the words {and rose up from Seir unto them} is referring to Jesus (Yashua). And nobody before or after Jesus (as) came from the land of Seir. Therefore the text cannot refer to anyone else than Jesus (as).

And Jesus (fsmi) says in the Bible:
{39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. 41 I receive not honour from men. 42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. 46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me. 47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?} - Book of John, chapter 5

And the words {he shined forth from mount Paran} are referring to Prophet Mohammed (pbuhaf). And this testament cannot refer to anyone who came before or after him. And Mohammed, his family, the Imams and Mahdis (as) cite this will and this text as an evidence for their truthfulness.

The Almighty said in the Holy Quran:
{And (mention) when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, "O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad." But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, "This is obvious magic."} - Holy Quran 61:7

{Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel, who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden and the shackles which were upon them. So they who have believed in him, honored him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him - it is those who will be the successful.} - Holy Quran 7:157

Jesaja (as) prophesied Jesus (as) and the Comforter of the End Times

Jesaja (as) prophesied Jesus as his sucessor and also clarified that Jesus comes as the giver of the glad tidings of the savior - called "the Comforter". Because this text has two meanings: Jesaja gives in it the glad tidings of Jesus, as well as the glad tidings of the Comforter - the comforter of the prophets and messengers (whom he calls "the sad"), on the day of revenge. So he says:

{1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;} - Book of Jesaja, chapter 61

And for this reason Jesus (fsmi) uses exclusively the above part of that Bible excerpt to demonstrate the veracity of his message. He only cites that part whih is connected with his mission, and leaves aside that part, which refers to the prophecy of the Comforter:

{16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. 17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.} - Book of Luke, chapter 4

Jesus (as) ends with the words {To preach the acceptable year of the Lord}, then he closed the book passing up the following verse: {and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn} . Because this part is about the Comforter, who will appear in the End Times. Even though Jesus reads the sentence, but does not cite it as an evidence for his truthfulness. Yes in these last days of his message (cf. Jona, chapter 14, 15 and 16) Jesus announced the glad tidings of the Comforter, warned from the upcoming day of revenge, and clarified that this will only take place if he leaves {... for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you;}.

Thus it is proven, that these words {and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn} do not talk about Jesus (as) himself.

The knowledge: Have the prophets and messengers cited their knowledge and wisdom as evidence for their truthfulness?

The prophets and messengers used their knowledge in the Torah s a proof for their truthfulness...
There are numerous texts, which witness that the prophets (pbut) did indeed cite their knowledge and wisdom as evidence. That goes for Moses (as) and his wisdom, Josua (as), David and Salomon (as) etc.... as well as Joseph (as) and Daniel (as), in the following two examples:

Prophet Joseph (as) utilized his knowledge and wisdom to administer the people and the land

God's vicgerent Joseph (as) interpreted dreams through divinely inspired knowledge.

In the 1. book of Moses (Genesis), chapter 41:
{1 And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river. [...] 8 And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.}

... until Pharaoh called for Joseph upon the advice Jospeh's fellow prisoner. And God made this dream a reason that the guidelines of Joseph (as) became apparent and that he was superior to all fortunetellers and scholars. Because he interpreted the dream of Pharaoh and thereby proved that he was a messenger of God. His knowledge served as a proof for his relation with God:

{15 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it. 16 And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.} - Genesis, Kapitel 41

Then Joseph continues his line of argument and shows, that the knowledge, which God has given him does not only cover the interpretation of dreams but also political and administrative knowledge:

{33 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.} - 1. Book of Moses (Genesis), Kapitel 41

Prophet Daniel prove his truthfulness through his knowledge astonishing the scholars and elders of his time

Prophet Daniel (pbuh) interpreting Nebuchadnezzar's dream

God bestowed upon the King of Iraq a vision, so that he may come to know the knowledge of Daniel (pbuh) and he would realize that Daniel is in contact with God. The king Nebuchadnezzar saw a great image, a stone cut from the mountain without hands destroyed the image, and the stone grew and filled the whole earth - The stone was said to be the latter-day kingdom of God.

{1 And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him. 2 Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king.} - Book of Daniel, chapter 2

And none of the scholars or wise men was capable of interpreting or explaining the dream:

{12 For this cause the king was angry and very furious, and commanded to destroy all the wise men of Babylon. 13 And the decree went forth that the wise men should be slain; and they sought Daniel and his fellows to be slain.}

Until Daniel came, and brought forth his knowledge and showed, that this was a divinely inspired vision and that also his knowledge about it was divinely inspired. And to have this knowledge was Daniel's proof for his relation with God and that he was sent by Him. And the king of Iraq had to admit this:

{27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king; 28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these; […] 45 ... the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. 46 Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him. 47 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret.}

Jesus (pbuh) cites his knowledge and wisdom as evidence for his truthfulness

Jesus (pbuh) debated his opponents, answered their questions and passed their tests. And here are some exerpts from the Bible:

{53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence. 54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?} - Gospel of Matthew, chapter 13

{21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught.} - Gospel of Mark, chapter 1

{1 And he arose from thence, and cometh into the coasts of Judaea by the farther side of Jordan: and the people resort unto him again; and, as he was wont, he taught them again. 2 And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him. 3 And he answered ...} - Gospel of Mark, chapter 10

Jesus (pbuh) also made evident that knowledge is an independent proof of the guidedness of a prophet. He furthermore said that a miracle can differ from propht to prophet and dos not occur according to to the whims of the people.

{14 And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about. […] 22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son? 23 And he said unto them, Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country. 24 And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country. 25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land; 26 But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow. 27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian. 28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, 29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong. 30 But he passing through the midst of them went his way, 31 And came down to Capernaum, a city of Galilee, and taught them on the sabbath days. 32 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power.} - Gospel of Luke, chapter 4

The call to God's Sovereignty

Moses (fsmi) establishes the Supremacy of Allah amongst the sons of Israel

Moses (pbuh) emigrated with those who believed in him and accepted him from the land of the tyrant, so that the Supremacy of God would be established in another land:

{15 Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning; ... 16 And thou shalt say unto him, The Lord God of the Hebrews hath sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, hitherto thou wouldest not hear.} - 2. Book of Moses (Exodus), chapter 7

And with the words {that they may serve me} is meant: That they obey him and follow his example - someone who implements the Supremacy of Allah. Because the religious duties like the prayer, and fasting, and the likes of it do not equire the emigration of a people, since they can usually be practised everywhere.

And Joseph (pbuh) used to carry out his religious duties together with the family of Jacob (pbuh) in Egypt. And also the believers from the children of Israel, among them Moses and Aaron (pbut), performed their prayers and carried out their religious duties in Egypt and in all the years before the exodus.

Thus it is clear, that the servitude Moses (as) asked for was the establishment of the Supremacy of God. and in the 2. book of Moses (Exodus), in chapter 19 we find more hints that the aim of the exodus was the establishment of the Supremacy of God:

{1 In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai. […] 3 And Moses went up unto God, and the Lord called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; 4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself. 5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.}

Moses (as) ordered the establishment of the Supremacy of God

In the last days of his prophethood Moses (pbuh) clearly pointed out to his people that legislation and rule are in God's hand, and that He is the one who appoints the judge, the ruler and the government:

{8 If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within thy gates: then shalt thou arise, and get thee up into the place which the Lord thy God shall choose; 9 And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and enquire; and they shall shew thee the sentence of judgment: 10 And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which they of that place which the Lord shall choose shall shew thee; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they inform thee: 11 According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do: thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew thee, to the right hand, nor to the left. 12 And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the Lord thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel. 13 And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously. 14 When thou art come unto the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me; 15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the Lord thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.} - 5. Book of Moses (Deuteronomy), chapter 17

Moses (pbuh) ordered his people and the believers to turn to the judge or priest who was appointed by God to reach a verdict and for the application of divine law. And the judge who is meant here is either one of the prophets appointed by God or a judge who was appointd by them - and not the judges who appointed themselves, or were elected by people, who are known for being corrupt and unjust. And for this reason he said: {unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days}. And he thereby refers to the judge which God will send and appoint in his time.

{18 And when the Lord raised them up judges, then the Lord was with the judge, and delivered them out of the hand of their enemies all the days of the judge...} - Judges, chapter 2

Moses (pbuh) had previously made clear through his legislation that a king must be appointed by God:

{15 Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the Lord thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee...} - 5. Book of Moses (Deuteronomy), chapter 17

Joshua (pbuh) called to the Supremacy of God

Joshua is Moses (pbuh) successor who called the people to God and reminded them that it is their duty to obey him, since he was appointed by God through Moses (pbuh). Furthermore he reminded them that he is responsible for the jurisprudence of God on earth, and for the execution of His orders. And his people admitted to this:

{1 Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying, […] 10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying, […] 12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying, 13 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, saying, The Lord your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land. […] 16 And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go. 17 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the Lord thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses. 18 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.} - Book of Joshua, chapter 1

The glad tidings of the establishment of the Supremacy of God on earth in the End Times

The prophets and messengers (pbut) gave the glad tidings of that day in the End Times on which the Supremacy of God will be established on earth - namely the State of Divine Justice.
And they made clear that the one who will establish all this will be the Savior, the Redeemer. And the Torah is full of passages which prove this. In the following we want to adress some of these, in which we find the statements of the prophets confirming the truthfulness of Sayyid Ahmed Al-Hassans (pbuh).

Some examples from the New Testament:

John the Baptist (pbuh) prophesied the establishment of the Supremacy of God on the earth in the End Times:
{1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, 2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.} - Gospel of Matthew, chapter 3

And after John (pbuh) it was Jesus who gave the glad tidings of establishment of the Supremacy of God:
{17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. […] 23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.} - Gospel of Matthew, chapter 4

And Jesus (pbuh) ordered his disciples and those who would believe in him after his death to pray for the establishment of the Supremacy of God on earth:
{9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.} - Gospel of Matthew, chapter 6

And upon Jesus' (pbuh) order the glad tidings of the upcoming establishment of the State of Divine Justice were continued after his ascension to heaven through his messengers.

{5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.} - Gospel of Matthew, chapter 10

And we will confine ourselves to these excerpts. But they are numerous, and everyone who wants to know more should have a look at the Bible and the Torah.


'The Law of Recognizing the Vicegerent of God' was fixed in the Quran, the Bible, and the Torah and furthermore is apparent to those of understanding.

Hence it is obligatory upon everyone to find the Divinely appointed ruler (Imam) of his time. An this is the only way to worldwide prevent injustice and opression...

The Messenger of Allah said: "Who dies withut recognizing the Imam of his time, dies the death of ignorance."

How does one recognize "the Companion of the Matter" - the Qaim?

Yamani clouds horse.jpg

Al-Harith ibn Al-Mugheera he said to Abi Abdullah (Imam Jafer) (pbuh): "How do we know about Saahib Al-Amr (Companion of the Matter)?" He said: "Peacefulness, dignity, knowledge, and the will." - Basaer Al-Darajat Muhammad ibn Al-Hassan Al-Safar

Abi Abdullah (Imam Jafer) (pbuh) said: "The companion of the matter will be known for three qualities it will not be given to anyone except himself. He is the first before anybody (with these qualities), he is his successor and he has the weapon of the Holy Prophet (pbuh & his family), and his will and that is something that I do not separate myself from." - Basaer Al-Darajat Muhammad ibn Al-Hassan Al-Safaar p.202

All praises belong to Allah Lord of the worlds.

For all who find themselves wondering, "what is the meaning of life?" or "what is my purpose?" there is an answer...

There was a time in my life when I was sad because I wanted to know God. I could feel the proof of God all around me and within myself. I knew that God existed but I felt, as many others do, that there was no truth left in the religions of the world today.

Then everything changed. When I learned that God had given us an ambassador, an Imam, to guide his creation in every time. Finally the path to God became clear.

Life without God is empty and devoid of meaning. It is in serving God and working to spread his truth that we gain purpose.'

What an amazing opportunity we have that we are alive at this time during the return of the greatest of souls: Imam Hussein (peace be upon him), the prophets, the messengers, and the righteous ones, peace be upon them all.

If you want to know why you are here, if you are striving to fulfill your purpose purpose, and if you are searching for a path to God - the answer is here.

The proof of God walks upon this earth and his name is Ahmed Al Hassan, peace be upon him.

Despite the overwhelming proofs ignorance is rampant

In the following excerpt of a Paltalk session with Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (as) we find the example of ignorant people who easily claim that that either the Mahdi has not appeared yet, or claim that they met the Mahdi - despite all the legitimating proofs that are found with Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan - while they have no legitimate proof for their claims...

A Guest had claimed that he has met the Mahdi (a.s)

The Imam (a.s) said: How did you know it's Muhammad son of Al-Hassan (a.s)?

A Guest said earlier that the Mahdi did not appear yet.

The Imam (a.s) said: How do you know he hasn't appeared (a.s). We have evidence from Muhammad and the family of Muhammad (sawas). So what do you have from evidence?

So the Imam (a.s) said: Ignorance has become a plague (sickness/ disease) that must be fought (cured) as quick as possible.

The Imam (a.s) said: Who is your Mahdi that you have met? Declare his name. A question... which messenger do you want us to follow a messenger... who painted it for you Abdulwahab and Ibn Taymia may the curse of Allah befall them? More like Lanahum Allah instead of (may the curse of Allah befall them) Ignorance is a disease.
The Imam (a.s) said: Ignorance is a disease.
