According to imam Ridha (as), Imam's reappearance will be extended to the day of Doom, no one knows this but God, it is hard to people and it will happen suddenly. Therefore, any investigation to find the exact time of his reappearance is fruitless and our duty is to wait. The meaning of "waiting for" is to desire his reappearance desperately and looking forward to his reappearance; this waiting results from faith and it is rewarded.

El autor se encarga de demostrar que el islam shiita es una expresión formal y espiritual genuinamente tradicional del islam original de Muhammad, preservado íntegramente en las enseñanzas de sus sucesores, los imames de la casa profética (ahl al-bayt).
