Reply to Question 3

The concerned holy verse says:

“And We desired to bestow a favour upon those who were deemed weak in the land, and to make them the Imams, and to make them the heirs” (Qur’an, 28:5).

Under the aforesaid verse, Sayyed Hashim Bahrani writes in the book“Al-Mahajjah” as follows:

“Imam Baqir (a.s.) and Imam Sadiq (a.s.) have narrated that in this verse, Firaun and Haaman are the two Quraish tyrants who would be given life by Allah during the rising of the “Qaem” at the end of time and Hazrat Mahdi would take vengeanc from them.”

This as well as other hadith clarify that by“Imams” and“heirs” in the holy verse is meant Hazrat Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) and his followers, who would rule in the entire land and hoist the flag of monotheism.
