Will Imam Mahdi(as) save shias in the west too?

Salam Alaykoom

The real question will be: will there still remain true Shias in the west at the time of the reappearance of Imam Mahdi (as)?

Mostly because of two things:

  1. For one, just before his reappearance, the earth will be filled with injustice and oppression, so much so that people will not be able to remain "on the fence", aka living the high life in the West while still being able to be Shia. It was the case at the battle of Badr, where people had to take a stand for one side or the other, it was the case at Uhud, it also was the case at Karbala, and every single time, there were people who wished for all their hearts to maintain their status quo between their faith and their worldly status (social position, wealth, life, etc...), and the most obvious choice for us (in retrospect) became the hardest decision of their life for those people.
  2. Every follower of Imam Mahdi (as) will be requested to gather around him, even if they have to "crawl on snow/ice" to get to him. Thus the West will be devoid of sincere Shia, since they'll all leave to join his ranks.

The following hadith is accepted by both sunnis and shias and illustrates my 2nd point:


The Prophet (S) said: "We (I and my family) are members of a household that Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى has chosen for them the life of the Hereafter over the life of this world; and the members of my household (Ahlul-Bayt) shall suffer a great affliction and they shall be forcefully expelled from their homes after my death; then there will come people from the East carrying black flags, and they will ask for some good to be given to them, but they shall be refused service; as such, they will wage war and emerge victorious, and will be offered that which they desired in the first place, but they will refuse to accept it till they pass it to a man from my family (Ahlul-Bayt) appears to fill the Earth with justice as it has been filled with corruption. So whoever reaches that (time) ought to come to them even if crawling on the ice/snow since among them is the Vice-regent of Allah (Khalifatullah) al-Mahdi."

The answer seems to be "no". Thus the question of having to save Shias in the West should be a non-issue.

Wa Salam.

What about the West and Asian countries, will Imam(as) fight tyrants there?

Salam he will conquer India & china too but it will be mainly by his followers , it will be a little war with west after conquering Jerusalem but by Prophet Isa (as) a peace treaty will held & after passing it's time people from companion of cave (Ashab' Al' Kahf) will be his commanders in a short fight with remaining hardcore Christians that didn't convert yo Islam yet during peace treaty in conclusion these will be minor fights his great wars is about 8 months after his reappearance between Mecca to Jerusalem to establish his government  & he will fight mostly with people that call themselves muslims.

Imam al-Baqir (‘a) said: “Hadrat al-Qa’im (‘a) will prepare three banners for (operations in) three regions. He will dispatch a banner to Constantinople30and God will open it for him (i.e., he will conquer it); he will send another banner to China and it will also be opened for him, and he will send the third banner for the mountains of Daylam,31 which will be overrun by his forces.”32

Regarding a group of supporters of al-Mahdi (‘atfs), Imam as-Sadiq (‘a) said: “The supporters of al-Mahdi (‘a) have swords made of iron, but this is different from common iron. If one of them would strike a mountain with his sword, the mountain will be divided into two. With such soldiers and equipment, Hadrat al-Qa’im (‘atfs) will wage war on India, Daylam, Kurdistan,6 Rome,7 the Berbers, Fars, and between Jabarsa and Jabalqa.”8

 Sin (China) is said to refer to East Asia which includes the former Soviet Union, India, Nepal, Burma (Myanmar), Vietnam, Japan, the China Sea, and the Korean Peninsula. See Al-Munjid.

. Hind: the triangle-shaped subcontinent in South Asia including India, Pakistan, Bhutan, and Nepal. See Burhan-e Qati‘, vol. 1, p. 703; I‘lam al-Munjid, p. 542.

Rome is presently the capital of Italy. At that time, it was the political capital of kings who used to rule there under the official title of Cesar and dominate a considerable portion of the world such that its sphere of influence encompassed the Mediterranean Sea, North Africa, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine, and all these territories were regarded as Rome (Roman Empire).

Antioch or Antakya (in Turkey): a city in southern Turkey, the capital of Hatay Province, on the Orontes River, near the Mediterranean Sea. The fact that Antioch is mentioned in the hadith as the place of refuge of the people in Rum (Rome) seems to indicate that the name “Rome” refers to Constantinople (capital of Byzantine or the Eastern Roman Empire). It is because it seems illogical to flee from a far place (Rome in Italy) to a place (Antioch in Turkey), which is near the spot of a perceived danger. This is corroborated by the fact that the same word, Rum (“Rome”) mentioned in the Qur’an (Surah ar-Rum) refers historically to the Byzantine or Eastern Roman Empire. (Trans.)

this is for what still many of them don't really knows Shia Islam & brainwashed by both anti muslim & Shia groups that after his reappearance & peace treaty with west they will know him at that time also it's  the term of " rising sun from the west ' that literally means knowing him & shia Islam in Amercia & Europe.
