Regarding Hazrat Baqi’yatallah (a.t.f.s.), traditions say that it is Allah’s indispensable Will to establish his government in the entire land. For this reason, he would be assisted by means of fear that would be cast in the hearts of enemies. Allah’s help to Hazrat Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) is a special one and would be more than that which prevailed during the time of other prophets or Imams.

We read in the holy Qur’an:

“He it is Who sent His Prophet with the guidance and the true religion that He may make it prevail over all the religions.” (Qur’an, 48:28)

Traditions appearing below this noble verse have esoterically interpreted this verse to refer to the period of Hazrat Mahdi’s (a.t.f.s.) rule.[265]

Of course, considering the vastness of Imam Mahdi’s government (which would be global), its success is not possible but by special divine help and in this regard, other verses and numerous traditions are clear witnesses.

According to verse 5 of Chapter Qasas, too, the establishment of global government by Hazrat Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) is an indispensable Will of Almighty Allah that would definitely occur.
