What Can The Shias In The West Do For Imam Mahdi?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

With all the tension and violence that is going on in the middle-east, what can we as Shias living in western countries do? Most of us live at the other side of the world and cannot take arms in fighting against oppression, so what is our role in paving the ground for imam Mahdi if we are far away from where all the action is taking place??

Wa Salam

Keep asking Allah for help "in paving the ground for imam Mahdi", to start with :)

 

then ask Allah to make you His instrument for this .. from your heart more and more. beg for it .. plead for it .. cry for it 

 

wasalaam

Salam thanks for your answer. Can we do anything else besides asking Allah to make us amongst the imam's helpers?? Thanks again for the answer

Wasalam,

 

Allah is capable of all. Once He says "Be" to something .. then it is ...

 

get what i'm saying? the sky's the limit. Each person has a unique duty, ability, skills, and destiny to fulfill. You have your own path, and once you beg Allah for help and to chose you, then it's up to you to grab opportunities. 

 

what i am trying to say is that once you ask Allah to chose you as a helper, then wait patiently with eyes open to receive an answer and fulfillment of this. And usually these are things one does not expect, nor is capable of imagining .. but the intention is what counts .. and it's between you and Allah

 

hope i didn't confuse you  ^_^  sorry if i did. it's great to see people with such noble intentions and souls. masha Allah. Glad i have chance to chat with people like you!

I think you should start saving the khums for him in order to fund him when he returns. Also keep money aside for airplane tickets. If you're the adventurous type, perhaps buy binoculars, compasses, knapsacks, boots, gloves, sleeping bags, winter coats, tents. Thats just an example. There is so much you can think of in order to contribute and prepare.

 

And like the brother says, pray for his reappearance and for the safety of all good souls.

Salaamualaikum, 

 

when the imam comes out he is going to need engineers, workers, intellectuals, mechanics, doctors etc.. not only mujahideen, even though everyone wants to die shaheed like syedna imam hussein (AS).

 

The imam's state is going to function like other countries, except that it will be a theocracy with everything revolving around the true islam, led by our glorious leader, Imam mahdi (Ajelllahu Taala farajahu al-Shareef). The best way we can 'arm' ourselves in the west is to learn learn and learn! We are going to be the ummah of the imam inshallah so we must work together to make the ummah an educated powerful force and to benefit the ummah. After we put our niyah as to work to help the ummah of the imam then Allah will guide us, and Allah will bless us and unite us with the imam and inshallah one day give us passage to the imam's state.

Why? 

To prepare for the 12th Imam, according to Shi'i texts, simply means to be "pious." That's it. Not prepare for Armageddon. If you believe that, I ask you to source it in any of the existing Islamic texts. 

 

The problem, though, is that his return has already been prophesied in the texts, which renders "piety" and "righteousness" irrelevant to the actual cause of his return. Isn't that a contradiction?

Assalamo Alaykom,

Do the following:

1. Create videos, websites, and things like this to make western people aware of Imam Al-Mahdi ATFS... Many westerners and Christians think that our beloved Imam is the Anti-Christ, that he is a bad man wishing to kill people. Even many have tried to introduce Daesh (ISIS) terrorists as followers and helpers of our kind Imam.

2. Prepare yourself for his return. If you were him, what would you need. So see what is your profession and expertise and become a reliable expert in that field to be useful for Imam ATFS. Sometimes our beloved Imam may also ask you to do something special that you cannot understand. Will you be still his follower even if he doesn't explain you the reason for that? We need to be his followers without any doubt...

3. Follow Holy Quran... According to Shih Hadeeth (authentic sources of Shiite Islam), Imams are "Speaking Quran". If you don't follow Quran completely, you will not be able to follow the Speaking Quran (Imam) properly.

4. Always say prayers and request Allah swt to speed up the return of our beloved Imam. Imam Al-Mahdi said: swear Allah by my aunt Zaynab sa to allow my return soon.

There are a couple of more things to mention. Insha-Allah I will post all of them in a separate post with references.

اللهم عجل لولیک الفرج

Peace

I've been studying different hadiths and literature about Imam Mahdi atfs and his visit to his true followers and I've realized that what he himself has wanted us to do is to prepare ourselves by avoiding sins and doing our obligations with regard to Islam.

He had once said to one of Shia scholars who had met him personally, that if our Shias purify themselves, they are not needed to search for me... I myself will go and meet them.

So let's purify ourselves by:

Not doing sins

Doing our Islamic obligations and prayers

Wassalam

2. do not usurp the lands from its original rightful inhabitants, and do not be part of the genocide and rape of innocent people.

You have entered the land unlawfully according to :Islamic rulings and have engaged and actively participating in crimes against humanity.

(knowingly or unknowingly ). If you desire the attention of your beloved :Al-Hujjat (as) then I advise you desist, seek amends and forgiveness from those you have committed crimes against.

In your case, seek forgiveness from the Aboriginal tribes and their true representative elders of the lands that you have wrongfully occupied, of the resources you have unlawfully used , and seek to compensate them.

:Allah swt does not like the oppressors and their helpers.

 

"...and do not help one another in sin and oppression; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is severe in requiting evil." 

(Surah Maidah 5:2)

3. The beloved :Al-Hujjat (as) will not need today's doctors, engineers , mechanics , lawyers , bankers etc , because these professions only exist to build the system that is preparing to serve the :Sufyani (L) which will oppose him. These people are building a society that is only going to self destruct with it's :Riba infested cities, that is unsustainable and destructive to all life and to the environment. He will replace this system with a more just and sustainable model never seen before, that is more advanced and superior to the current one.

For those that really want to prepare, perhaps its best to leave the schools and universities, leave your jobs etc.

Maybe start with learning about alternative technologies and systems that are slowly being released to help humanity.

This is available for those who are awake and aware of the changes taking place and which are purposely hidden from the mainstream.

I believe our beloved through his sources releases such opportunities for those that are genuine and seek the truth.

Schools and Universities are not such places to seek this type of knowledge.

But the advantage of being in the west is that there are alternative more viable technologies being rediscovered within the alternate societies.

 

egs. endless energy systems, hemp plastics,  cures for all diseases, and a real non :Riba banking system waiting to be introduced.

Perhaps things that may seem too simple make a big difference. Try joining small protests, or gathering friends to have a small dua-filled night at one of your homes for the people suffering from the oppression. Allah takes these small actions into account. Don't think that because we live in the West it's harder to fight, in fact, we have the opportunity to go and make a difference, while our people of the middle east stay in their homes, scared to do anything. Make the best of the free time you have, something as simple as a Salawat for the oppressed goes a long way.
