The Return (Raj'ah)
During the time of the Mahdi (May Allah hasten his blessed advent) our Holy Prophet and our infallible Imams (Peace be on them) will return to this world along with a body of men belonging to the past and the subsequent nations, with a view to demonstrate their power and establish their rights. This is what has been expressly mentioned by a number of continuous reports and Qur'anic verses. Allah says:
The day on which We will assemble a group from every people.
Therefore it is obligatory to believe in the doctrine of 'Return' (raj'ah).1
