Transcript:

– ‘We must reach a point where no home does not have a child named (Mahdi) in it’

– ‘Year after year we witness an increase in interest in the issue of Mahdawiyyah, and this is a glad-tiding God willing’

– ‘Recently CIA research centres specialising in everything to do with the ‘End Times’ were discovered – a fundamental part of (their research) focusing on Imam al-Mahdi (ajtf)’

– ‘After the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, the Jews were struck with horror because it is found within their books that their state will be downed by an army from the east’

– ‘Saddam’s war on Iran worked as a line of defence for the Zionist entity’

– ‘When the House of Saud, the Wahhabis, and the Zionist entity look at the Islamic world and its current developments, they are frightened’

– ‘Among the problems and points of confusions that are put forward in a mocking fashion, is that Imam al-Mahdi (ajtf) disappeared in the sirdaab (cellar), and he remains in the cellar. One of the scholars of Qum says that none of our scholars say that Imam al-Mahdi disappeared in the cellar, and that this talk has no basis’

– ‘The last appearance of Imam al-Mahdi was at the funeral of his father (a.s), and some narrations state that he left Samarra altogether’

– ‘Among the problems (also): what is the purpose of a disappearance if he is alive? The answer has been reported from the Messenger (s) and Imam al-Sadiq (a.s), and from a letter by Imam al-Mahdi (ajtf), that it is like deriving benefit from the sun that is hidden by the clouds’

– ‘The most oft-repeated personalities mentioned in the narrations are the Sufyani, then the Yamani, then the Khorasani’

– ‘We know the Yamani and Khorasani by the Sufyani, and the Suyani is one of the certain signs over which there is no debate’

– ‘The Sufyani, Yamani, and Khorasani come out in the same year, and the same month’

– ‘Problems/confusions (surrounding such issues) should be referred to the scholars specialising in such research’

– ‘One of the major responsibilities upon our shoulders is to increase people’s concern with and attention to Mahdawiyyah’

– ‘The biggest influence that brought back Mahdawiyyah to the heart of Islam and Shias in particular was Imam Khomeini’

– ‘When we tie things to Imam al-Mahdi (ajtf), such as the name of the scouts/schools/uniforms, then this is a form of spiritual connection (to the Imam)’

– ‘In our culture we are preparing the army of Imam al-Mahdi, and this is the biggest form of psychological warfare against the Israeli enemy’

– ‘There is an objective which we need to work towards: how do we transform the 15th of Shaban into the greatest and happiest occasion that we have’

– ‘There are those who say that ‘rather than spend money on marking an occasion, give this money to the poor’. This is like the one who says that ‘the huqooq al-shariyyah (e.g. khums) is being spent on the domes of the shrines of the Imams, at a time when there are (alot of) poor people’, and this is a form of deception’

– ‘(In fact) the domes are not built using the amwaal al-shariyyah (e.g. khums), rather (they are built) via donations. Secondly, the Global Kufr (disbelief) and its Wahhabi tools do not want there to be any grave or shrine or remnant of the Imams (a.s)’

– ‘When we build a shrine and construct domes, we strengthen the religion. Spending money on marking this occasion (15th of Shaban) is part and parcel of the war’

– ‘Our culture and thought is that we await and expect the reappearance of Imam al-Mahdi every day, every night, and every hour’

– ‘Even with the existence of narrations that discuss timelines for the reappearance (Sufyani in Rajab, the Call in the month of Ramadan, the killing of the pure soul at the end of Dhil Hijjah, the reappearance on the 10th of Muharram), yet all this can be changed (Holy Quran, Surat al-Raad, Ayah 39: ‘Allah makes to pass away and establishes what He pleases…’)

– ‘The essence of the idea of the Call is that there be a miracle to put forward the proof and establish the truth’

– ‘We are witnessing an attack on Islam, and we will witness an even greater attack, because the State of the Mahdi is the State of Islam’

– ‘After the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, the world witnessed an attraction towards Islam, for this reason the Global Arrogance constructed a wall to block this move (towards Islam), so they produced Wahhabism and Saudi (Arabia)…and they employed the global media for this purpose’

– ‘The targeting of Iran and Hezbollah continues to grow because (these two) managed to manifest the true image of Islam that entails power, compassion, dignity, and victories’
