Brother how is this verse regarding water have anything to do with imam Mahdi? Please help me understand the connection between the two.
The Spring of Water
Say: Have you considered if your water should go down, who is it then that will bring you flowing water?
(Surah Mulk (67), Verse 30)
Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) narrates:
"This verse has been revealed about Imam Qaem (a.s.).
Imam (a.s.) also said:
"If you find that your Imam is occult and don't know where he is, then where will you find him who will inform about the news of the heavens and the earth, and teach you the permissible and prohibited of Allah? By Allah the actualization of this verse has not taken place nor is it possible till that time".
(Kamaaluddin, Pg. 335; Al Saafi, Vol. 5, Pg. 206; Isbaatul Hudaat, Vol. 3, Pg 498)
Every living being is in need of water. Water comprises two thirds of this world and life exists because of it. When scientists seek to discover life on other planets they in fact attempt to search water there. The presence of water on any planet means that life exists there because water indicates life. Similarly, disappearance of water from any place leads to its destruction and the end of life therein. Moreover nothing in this world except water has the ability to quench ones thirst. In the same manner when the religion will be about to burn in the flames of oppression and injustice, Allah will bring forth this spring and revive the dead earth (religion) with it.
Thus Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) is rightly called as the "Spring of Water
1:6 Keep us on the right path.
1:7 The path of those upon whom Thou hast bestowed favors.
Not (the path) of those upon whom Thy wrath is brought down, nor of those who go astray.
Surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
