Salaam.

Hypothetically, if you had the option of either being one of the 72 of Imam Hussain (as) or one of the 313 of Imam Mahdi (as), which option would you choose and why?

I would choose to polish their servant, I do not imagine that I could be or can be like them, As for 72, they are highly praised by Ahlebait a.s and it was said by Imam Hussain a.s that I have such companions which even my father do not have. They were founders of great revolution which will culminate in the conclusion of Islam when Imam Mehdi a.s will rise with 313. As for 313, they will be people of high caliber, all of them being saints and men of God whom our Imams have praised so much. I do not see in myself such a quality.

Yes, but please remember that 50 women have been mentioned as helpers of Imam Zaman, may Allah hasten his reappearance.

Alhamdolilah, yes, "Men of God" is used in terms of "Saints" but I missed word "Wo" but I meant all of them. I am actually a man so I thought in that way, since I would not be able to stand those high ladies due to being a male. :confused:

Women and Men have always been together in goodness throughout prophets and without women, the army of Imam-e-Zamana a.s would not be complete on both scales such as at higher levels there will be 50 among 313 and at lower level there will be assistants of those 50 women next to them in piety and commitment.

One should be smart in making choice here.

So keeping in view the sensitivity of matter, I would chose to be in 313. I would make sure to serve the Imam of time with my heart & soul, be his true follower & obedient one. By doing that & by fighting for his side, I will make sure as I have fought the battle of Karbala from the side of Imam e Mazloom (a.s), as I have fought the battle of Siffin & Jamal from the side of Ameerul-Mo'mineen (a.s).

Serving & helping Imam of my time is an obligation on me. Helping him would mean as I helped the rest of my 11 Imams (peace & blessings of Allah be upon them all).

@wolverine   @Sindbad05    @Hameedeh     @Salsabeel

Very interesting answers. Thank you.

There is no correct answer of course since this is a hypothetical scenario.

Question for you though - what about Imam Hussain's call of "Hal min Yansurna". I guess in some ways, helping the Imam of our time is helping Imam Hussain's (as) mission anyway.

Sister @Hameedeh - you raise a good point that we should all remember:

Maybe the 12th Imam, may Allah hasten his return, will say the similar thing that Imam Hussein AS said.

” هل من ناصر ينصرنا هل من معين يعيننا هل من ذاب عن حرم رسول الله صلى الله عليه واله"

Is there anyone to help me? Is there anyone to support me? Is there any defender to defend the Household of the Messenger of Allah?

That was the call of Husayn ibn ‘Ali, the grandson of the Holy Prophet (S) on the day of Ashura, year 61 A.H.
