62. Angels seek forgiveness
That which proves this honor is a tradition mentioned in the first volume of Biharul Anwar from His Eminence, Abu Abdillah Sadiq (as) that he said to Dawood bin Sarhan:
“O Dawood, convey my greetings to my followers and tell them: May Allah have mercy on one who meets another and discusses our matter as the third of them will be an angel who will seek forgiveness for them, and no two people gather to talk about us, but that the Almighty Allah boast to His angels with regard to them. Thus whenever you have a gathering you must have discussions about us as your gathering and talking about us is revival of our matter and the best of people after us are those who talk about our affair (Wilayat) and who invite to our remembrance.”1
I say: The point of evidence is that praying for an early reappearance of our master, the Master of the Time (aj) is the most obvious implication of this and this description best fits the supplicants for Imam Mahdi (aj). May the Almighty Allah give us the Tawfeeq to become one of these.
