20. General Hygiene

• The blind will get vision and the sick will be cured at the hands of Imam az-Zamaan (a.t.f.s.).1

• During that era, Allah, the Almighty, will dispel all illnesses from the Shias. They will regain their power and strength.2

• In that time, longevity will be commonplace, so much so that one person will have a thousand sons. This is sufficient indication of the long lives prevalent then. Perhaps, one person himself may have a thousand sons or there will be a thousand sons from his descendants.3
