قُلْ هَلْ مِن شُرَكَآئِكُم مَّن يَهْدِي إِلَى الْحَقِّ قُلِ اللّهُ يَهْدِي لِلْحَقِّ أَفَمَن يَهْدِي إِلَى الْحَقِّ أَحَقُّ
أَن يُتَّبَعَ أَمَّن لاَّ يَهِدِّيَ إِلاَّ أَن يُهْدَى فَمَا لَكُمْ كَيْفَ تَحْكُمُونَ
“Say: Is there any of your associates who guides to the truth? Say: Allah guides to the truth. Is He then Who guides to the truth more worthy to be followed, or he who himself does not go aright unless he is guided? What then is the matter with you; how do you judge?”
Maymoun al Baan narrates, “I was with Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) in his tent when he raised the side of the tent and said, “When the reappearance of Imam Mahdi (as) takes place, it will be more clear than the shining sun. The crier will announce from the heavens, “al Mahdi (as) is the Imam”. He will mention his name but then Iblis (la) will cry out from the earth, just as he cried out on the night of Aqaba in the plots against Holy Prophet (sawa).” (Kamaluddin volume 2 page 650)
Muslima al Jariri narrates, “I said to Imam Jafar Sadiq (as), “People condemn us and they call us liars when we tell them that there will be two announcements. They ask, “how will you know the rightful announcement from the false one?”
Imam (as) asked, “How do you answer them?” I replied, “We do not answer them”.
Imam (as) said, “Tell them that those who already believe in the announcement will authenticate it for Allah says, Is He then Who guides to the truth more worthy to be followed, or he who himself does not go aright unless he is guided? What then is the matter with you; how do you judge?” (Al Kafi volume 8 page 208, Al Ghaybah by Nomani page 226)
Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) said, “Jibrael (as) will make an announcement from the heavens and Iblis (la) will make an announcement from the earth. Therefore, follow the first announcement and beware of the second one. Do not pay attention to it or you will be misguided.” (Kamaluddin volume 2, page 652)
