Message Number 12 Ahead to the Arrival:
In the name of Allah the Merciful the Compassionate
(At your service O Hossain(Labaik ya Hossain (At your service O Mahdi(Labaik ya Mahdi فاسئل الله .....و ان یثبت لی عندکم قدم صدق فی الدنیا و الاخره I make a request to Allah to… keep me company with you(ya Hossain) …. stand firm beside you and my footsteps follow yours so closely in this world and in Hereafter اللهم.................................و ثبت لی قدم صدق عندک مع الحسین و اصحاب الحسین الذین بذلوا مهجهم دون الحسین علیه السلام(زیارت عاشورا) O my Allah!... let me stand firm in safety before You on account of my sincere attachment with Imam Hossain(A.S.), along with him and his comrades, whom sacrificed all they had (heart, mind, soul) and life) for him, peace be on him.(Ziarat Ashura) عندکم قدم صدق ؟ قدم صدق عندک ؟ Standing firm beside Imam Hossein(following him sincerely) means being at his service, not to leave Hossain of this time alone (Imam Mahdi A.S.) in the current Karbala, honestly and seriously strive to prepare for his Arrival, support and obey him((that is now on obeying Velayat-e faqih) اللهم اجعلنی من انصاره و اعوانه و الذابین عنه و المسارعین الیه فی قضاء حوائجه و الممتثلین لاوامره و المحامین عنه و السابقین الی ارادته و المستشهدین بین یدیه(دعای عهد) Following Imam Hossain(A.S.) sincerely means to be with Imam Mahdi(A.S.) not with our desires and finally get close to Allah by him. When man sacrifices himself completely for Imam Mahdi(A.S.), the drop of his being joins the ocean of Absolute Being.
So there will be then no veil between him and Allah. In fact it is to meet God and join to the divine status which is the highest degree of perfection and closeness to Allah. O Allah put me among his helpers even as holding their shoes, those (among his companions and his lovers) who are fragrant by Imam Mahdi’s smell. A poem of Imam Khomaini: While your desires are worldly, you can’t understand his lovely smell Whoever is imprisoned by his worldly desires he is not prepared (for Imam Mahdi’s Arrival) تا اسیر رنگ و بویی, بوی دلبر نشنوی هر که این اغلال در جانش بود آماده نیست
