The Letter Dhaal (Dh)

1. Dhabba (Warding Off) The Enemies From The Believers During The Occultation And Reappearance Of His Eminence

As for the period of occultation of His Eminence, it is achieved through the prayers of His Eminence. And as for the period when the Holy Imam (as) is present, we have already discussed it under the topic of the Jihad and battles of His Eminence, against the enemies. And also by the elimination and destruction of the infidels through his sword and the disgrace of the enemies at his hands will be brought about if Allah wills.

2. Disgrace Of The Enemies At The Hands Of His Eminence After The Reappearance

In Kafi it is narrated from His Eminence, Abu Ja’far Baqir (as) that he said:

“When the Qaim will arise he will present faith to every Nasibi (one who hates the Ahle Bayt). Thus if he accepts it with all sincerity, no problem; but if not, he would strike off his neck. Or he would have to pay the Jizyah just as these days the Dhimmis pay Jizyah. And they will tie the wallet to the waist and chase them from the cities to big cities.”1

I say: What we have mentioned under the Letter “A” supports this matter.

In Kafi it is narrated from His Eminence, Abu Ja’far Baqir (as) that he said:

“There is a kingdom for the truth and a kingdom for falsehood and each of them are humiliated and disgraced during the rule of other.”2

In Biharul Anwar it is narrated from His Eminence, Abu Ja’far Baqir (as) that he said regarding the verse:

خَاشِعَةً أَبْصَارُهُمْ تَرْهَقُهُمْ ذِلَّةٌ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ الْيَوْمُ الَّذِي كَانُوا يُوعَدُونَ

“Their eyes cast down; disgrace shall overtake them; that is the day which they were threatened with.” (Qur’an, Surah Maarij 70:44)

“That is: the day of the advent of the Qaim.”3

In Tafseer of Ali Ibne Ibrahim Qummi it is reported from His Eminence, Abi Abdullah Sadiq (as) that he said regarding the verse:

وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَنْ ذِكْرِي فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنْكًا وَنَحْشُرُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَعْمَىٰ

“And whoever turns away from My reminder, his shall be a straitened life.” (Qur’an, Surah Taha 20:124)

“This condition, by Allah is for the Nasibis (enemies of Ahle Bayt).” Muawiyah bin Ammar said: May I be sacrificed on you, I have witnessed them leading a long life of prosperity and comfort till their death. His Eminence said:

“By Allah, there is a terrible condition for them during the Raja’t (return to life during the time of reappearance of Imam Mahdi) such that they will eat waste matter.”4
