RIC'AT : Return to the World


12 Imam Aleyhimusselam
Hazreti Fatima Selamullahi Aleyha
Imam Mahdi Aleyhisselam

الْلَهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدْ وَاَلِ مُحَمَّدْ وَعَجِّلْ فَرَجَهُمْ وَالْعَنْ أَعْدَائَهُمْ

Al-i Imran 81 : "When Allah made (His) covenant with the Prophets, (He said): Behold that which I have given you of the Scripture and knowledge. And afterward there will come unto you a messenger, confirming that which ye possess. Ye shall believe in him and ye shah help him. He said: Do ye agree, and will ye take up My burden (which I lay upon you) in this (matter)? They answered: We agree. He said: Then bear ye witness. I will be a witness with you."

Al-i Imran 82 : "Then whosoever after this shall turn away: they will be miscreants."

And than they all gave definite promise in this regard. That HELP is not going to happen during Judgment Day or doomsday. So that is definitly happen in the world.

Sheikh Hassan Sadik from its own shares b. From Chem, Memun asked to Imam Reza Aleyhisselam, "What is your opinion about the Ric'at?" When asked, he narrated that Imam Aleyhisselam ordered :

"Ric'at is right; ric'at in the past has been reported that the nation and the Koran. The Prophet Sallallahu Aleyhi ve Alihi ve Sellem said that: just for everything that occurred in the past ummah will occur in this nation. When it comes my son Mahdi Aleyhisselam rise up, Jesus Christ son of Mary, will descend to earth and will pray behind Imam Mahdi Aleyhisselam. Know that, Islam began as strange and weird return strange; blessed with strange! Rights Will return to the righteous" (1)

Bakara 243 : "Didst thou not Turn by vision to those who abandoned their homes, though they were thousands (In number), for fear of death? Allah said to them: "Die": Then He restored them to life.For Allah is full of bounty to mankind, but Most of them are ungrateful." (2)

All narrated commentary on these verses when they died for a long time, then that God raised them, so that they live a long time, turning to signify to the world.

Sheikh Sadik says: Their number was seventy thousand households. They caught each year TA's disease. While the rich ones leave their homeland, the Poor remains in their realm of the poor. Therefore, fewer migrants caught the TA's disease, while those who do not migrate caught to this disease much more. Therefore, remaining in the land, if we did leave our homeland we would not have caught the disease tau; The immigrants said, if we had not migrate our realm, we were caught in the TA's disease.

Finally, when it comes to the disease of tau they decided to leave their land and emigrated to the sea along the coast. After download the load God ordered to them: "Dead,". So they all died. Eventually, one passerby pushed them aside and remained there for some time that God desires.

Then the prophets of Israel Ermia (3) proceed from there said: My Lord! If you wish, you raise them; they also improve your destination, they engender and pray together with you. Then Allah Almighty to him, "Do you want me to resurrect for you?" he revealed. The Prophet said, "Yes, I would" . Almighty God, he sent resuscitating them with the Prophet. So, they returned to Earth after they die, and then they die their own death. (4)

That is a return to the world after death. Hamre b. A'yen asked from Imam Baqir Aleyhisselam, "I wonder if they have risen and after people saw them they died the same day, after seeing them, or did they sit on returning home to the world, did they marry the woman, the food they ate and than died?" asked. Imam ordered : "God has returned them to the world; they sit at home, ate dinner, were married the women, and they lived in the world as God wills; then they die their own death." (5)

Bakara 259 : "Or (bethink thee of) the like of him who, passing by a township which had fallen into utter ruin, exclaimed: How shall Allah give this township life after its death? And Allah made him die a hundred years, then brought him back to life. He said: How long hast thou tarried? (The man) said: I have tarried a day or part of a day. (He) said: Nay, but thou hast tarried for a hundred years. Just look at thy food and drink which have rotted! Look at thine ass! And, that We may make thee a token unto mankind, look at the bones, how We adjust them and then cover them with flesh! And when (the matter) became clear unto him, he said: I know now that Allah is Able to do all things." (6)

There are different rumors and commentary about these people who who were them that passed a rundown town. But they agree that they remained dead hundred years and after hundred years they return to the world and lived. Then when he died his own death; this is a convert to the world of life.

Tabers says: This is Uzeyr who passes the ruined town; Abu Abdullah Imam Sadiq Aleyhisselam is also ordered the same. from Imam Baqir Aleyhisselam also narrated that was the Prophet Ermiya. (7)

Ayyasi, from Ibrahim b. Muhammad would narrated as follows: Sciences competent group reported that Ibn-i Kevva who was from Harici asked a quesiton to Imam Ali Aleyhisselam, "O commander of the believers! Is there somebody in the world that he is older than his father? He ordered :

Yes; they are Uzeyr's children. Uzeyir was going through a ruined town whie coming from the field, a donkey, a bag in which there was a soil battle with figs and grape juice in fruit; in this case passes through the town was destroyed (see the state of the town) "After death, God will raise them wonder how ?!" he said. Then Allah Almighty killed him a hundred years. Then his children multiplied and increased his generation. Then Allah Almighty by resuscitating him return him to the world where he killed; those were the children biger than thier father. (8)

Bakara 55 - 56 : "Once upon a time you said : O Moses! We shall never believe in thee until we see Allah manifestly, but ye were dazed with thunder and lighting even as ye looked on. Then We raised you up after your death: Ye had the chance to be grateful.(9)

This two verses are about Prophet Moses people which from some of them chosen to talk with God. They heard the word of the Almighty God, "we do not believe in God unless we see Him manifestly," he said, and was struck by lightning and died because of this persecution. Moses the Prophet ', "My Lord, what shall I say to them when I returned to Israel". So God has raised them. So they turned to the world, ate, drunk, married to women and had children; then they die their own death. (10)

This resurrection after the death of seventy men from Israel and a return to the world; Almighty Allah Almighty saying :

A'raf 155 : "And Moses chose seventy of his people for Our place of meeting: when they were seized with violent quaking, he prayed: "O my Lord! if it had been Thy will Thou couldst have destroyed, long before, both them and me: wouldst Thou destroy us for the deeds of the foolish ones among us? This is no more than Thy trial: by it Thou causest whom Thou wilt to stray, and Thou leadest whom Thou wilt into the right path. Thou art our Protector: so forgive us and give us Thy mercy; for Thou art the best of those who forgive."

Seven Sleepers hide their faith for fear of the sultan who worshiped idols and was killing those who oppose him. Then they reported that they believe in God and they hid in the cave:

Kehf 25: "So they stayed in their Cave three hundred years, and (some) add nine (more)"

Than God gave them life, they returned to the world; their stories are famous.

Yasin 51 - 52 : "The trumpet shall be sounded, when behold! from the sepulchres (men) will rush forth to their Lord!They will say: "Ah! Woe unto us! Who hath raised us up from our beds of repose?"...(A voice will say:) "This is what Most Gracious had promised. And true was the word of the messengers!" (13)

There are so many example like that. (14)

Joseph b. Yahya Shafi Mukaddesi-i, "Ikd'ud Durer book" The Companions of the Cave of the story is narrated from Sa'lebi' : They lie side till the rise up of Imam Mahdi Aleyhisselam. That is said: Imam Mahdi Aleyhisselam will salute them, then Allah will raise them. "(15) That shows the Ric'at (return to the world) of The Companions of the Cave in the End Times , respectively.

A resurrection of the murdered person of Israel

Exegetes they narrated as follows : One from Israel, killed on of his rich relatives to put on heritage and hide from others that he killed him. The Jews wanted to recognize its murderer. That is why God ordered them to cut a cow to introduce the person's killer, ordered them to hit with a piece of meat to the dead bodies for him to rise up. After discussing for a while the Israelites cut off the cows, and they hit the corpse of the murdered people with piece of the meat. Thus resurrect the victim, blood poured from vessel and he said the killer. Allah Subhanallah Teala ordered :

Bakara 73 : "So We said: "Strike the (body) with a piece of the (heifer)." Thus Allah bringeth the dead to life and showeth you His Signs: Perchance ye may understand."

All these events shows after the death of the nation in the past they return to the life of this world. At various times, different places and for different purposes, Prophets, their Caliphs, Vasi even though ordinary people have returned to the world. And It reveals that it not impossible after the death to return to life; There is no need for discussion.

We need to ask the following : In the future ric'at (after death return to the world) What is the reason to prevent it? In the past there were some reasons for requiring ric'at; ric'at necessary in the future to make all these reasons, there can not be a more important reason for you ?! However ric'at, target of the prophets, promise of the Caliphs (Vasi), for finding the location of the implementation of the rights and justice:

Enbiya 105 : "Before this We wrote in the Psalms, after the Message (given to Moses): My servants the righteous, shall inherit the earth."

Tevbe 24 : "Then wait until Allah brings about His decision: and Allah guides not the rebellious."


Neml 82 : "And when the Word is fulfilled against them (the unjust), we shall produce from the earth a DABBE to (face) them: He will speak to them, for that mankind did not believe with assurance in Our Signs."

Neml 83 : "One day We shall gather together from the people a troop of those who reject our Signs, and they shall be kept in ranks"

Neml 84 : "Until, when they come (before the Judgment-seat), (Allah) will say: "Did ye reject My Signs, though ye comprehended them not in knowledge, or what was it ye did?"

Neml 87 : "And (remind them of) the Day when the Trumpet will be blown, and all who are in the heavens and the earth will start in fear, save him whom Allah willeth. And all come unto Him, humbled."

These verses reveal of three events:

1- Producing Dabbet-ul Arz

2- Special Resurrection

3- The Day When The Trumpet will be blown For Resurrection

Some of the rumores reveal that "Dabbet-ul Arz" in this verse emphasized that is "Emirel Muminin" Imam Ali Aleyhisselam. Sufyan b. Uyeyn of its own shares from Jabir b. Yazid-i Cu'fi' say that "Dabbat-ul-Arz" is Ali bin Ebutalib Aleyhisselam.

Sheikh Kuleyni writes from Imam Muhammed Baqir Aleyhisselam :

Imam Ali Aleyhisselam ordered :

"(To the enemy) repeatedly attacking, the owner of the state of state is me. I am the owner of the wand and hot iron and the Dabbe which speak with the human is me."

Somebody asked Ammar b. Yasir, "O Ammar! I missed a verse in the Book of Allah and peace discredit me, he said. Ammar, which verse? asked. Man, ""And when the Word is fulfilled against them (the unjust), we shall produce from the earth a DABBE to (face) them: He will speak to them, for that mankind did not believe with assurance in Our Signs." and he asked "What is the Dabbet-ul Arz in that verse?"

Ammar said, I swear to God, I will not sit, not eat, not drink anything until I show you. He went with this man to the house of Imam Ali Aleyhisselam. At that time Imam Ali Aleyhisselam was eating date and butter. Seeing Ammar, go ahead, he said. Ammar sitting down with Imam Aleyhisselam he began to eat. The man was surprised to see it. By the rise Ammar tha man said, Süphanellah! O Ammar! You swore, that not to eat not to drink not to sit down until you show me. Thereupon Ammar, "if you run your mind I show it to you", I replied.

Abul Fath-i-Razi in his commentary says: Accordance with narrations "Dabbat-ul Arz" is the owner of time Imam Mahdi Aleyhisselam.

When we pay attention to this hadith and previous hadith, we see that from the word of "Dabbat-ul-Arz", we understand that in the end times will return to the world, dare to separate the infidels from each other, with non-believers.

From narrated it shows that "Dabba" is the strength and wonder of the indicator, to emphasize that with Moses' staff and divine government's indication that Solomon's ring, he has a supreme divine power to the people of verse and niche until suggest that a human; The verse also "talk to them" phrase also confirms that he was a human being.

2-"One day We shall gather together from the people a troop of those who reject our Signs, and they shall be kept in ranks"

It relates to events that took place before the Day of Judgment. Special Resurrection has has taken place between the two signs Dabba and blown For Resurrection.

3-"Day when the Trumpet will be blown" verses, Special Resurrection will take place before the Doomsday and Special Resurrection is one of the signs of Doomsday. Allah Subhanallah Teala general resurrection, "resurrection after blown" has used the term. "Everyone in the sky and on the ground remains in fear ... all come to Him." Yet here are two resurrection here : One is to gather a group resurrection from every nation on this ric'at (return to the world after death), and the other consisting of all the people that are the resurrection of Doomsday. After the Doomsday there is no other Resurrection, so it is understood this resurrection is before Doomsday.

In other terms, It shows that Special Resurrection is not doomsday on this verse, It is to signify the resurrection of a group who denied God's verses. "From every nation" in Arabic of the verse the word "min" is "some" or "a portion" that gives meaning and would indicate that the exceptions; whereas In many verses of the Holy Koran in the resurrection of Judgment is not for the special people, and the community has a particular, it was emphasized that covers everyone in this resurrection. "One day will He gather them all together,..." (24) There is no exception in this verse and it is emphasized that everyone will be resurrected. Thus, the rise of a group from every nation on earth is not the events of the Day of Judgment will come to an end of life. What we said above, before the end of the second verse is clear evidence that there would be a resurrection before Doomsday.

The Imam of Ahl al-Bayt Aleyhimusselam emphasized with that verse The Ric'at is true and real. Ebu Basir said that Imam Muhammed Bakir Aleyhisselam ordered : "Are the Iraqie deny Ric'at?" And he answered : Yes . Upon this Imam Aleyhissealm ordered : Have they not read the verse from Qoran "One day We shall gather together from the people a troop of those who reject our Signs, and they shall be kept in ranks."

Ali b. Ibrahim in his commentary, said from Hammad Imam Sadiq Aleyhisselam ordered : "the people" from every nation on that day we shall raise a group of "What do they say about the verse?". I said resurrection will be during Doomsday.

Imam Aleyhisselam ordered :

Not like that; This verse (before the Day of Judgment) is about a return to the world; Will God leave the others during Doomsday? The following verse is about Doomsday:

Kehf 47 : "One Day We shall remove the mountains, and thou wilt see the earth as a level stretch,(2388) and We shall gather them, all together, nor shall We leave out any one of them." (26-27)

Allah Subhanallah Teala ordered in that verse that the great resurrection is the Doomsday. The resurrection of Ric'at is before Doomsday as following verse :

Neml 83 : "One day We shall gather together from the people a troop of those who reject our Signs, and they shall be kept in ranks"

The Imam of Ahl al-Bayt Aleyhimusselam emphasized that : when Imam Mahdi Aleyhisselam raise, a group of his lovers and followers will be raise and they will appreciate the establishment of the universal government of Imam Mahdi Aleyhisselam. And again Almighty Allah will return some of them to the world, from the enemy of Imam Mahdi Aleyhisselam, taking revenge and killing them by Shiite and thus seeing a part of the punishment they deserve in the world and seeing the glory of his word. One common sense do not doubt that it's not impossible by God, Almighty Allah has made this in the past for nation and Holly Qoran mentioned like the parable of Uzeyr in severel places. Prophet Muhammed Sallallahu Aleyhi ve Alihi ve Sellem ordered :

"Just as the Israelites of events occurring in my ummah will occur soon; If even one go to the hole of lizard you'll enter in there."

Nur 55 : "Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that He will, of a surety, grant them in the land, inheritance (of power), as He granted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion - the one which He has chosen for them; and that He will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace: ´They will worship Me (alone) and not associate aught with Me. ´If any do reject Faith after this, they are rebellious and wicked." (30)

Mumin 11 : "They will say: "Our Lord! twice hast Thou made us without life, and twice hast Thou given us Life! Now have we recognised our sins: Is there any way out" (31)

Sheikh Mufid (ra) said : Allah Subhanallah Teala inform us, that resurrected tyrant of the Resurrection, which is great resurrection day will say "Our Rabb, you killed us twice ...". Ahl al-Sunnah is not accepted in this issue of interpretation. Ahl al-Sunnah; "Rabb, killed us twice ..." verse, after their arrival in the world means that they say created as dead. This is a wrong interpretation; Arabs do not use this term. Because the verb indicates a case out of the adjevtives and that it contains the meaning of creation as God's dead which is not called, "God killed him". This phrase is used deceased person, after living. And again, "God has given life to the dead" but the term is also used about someone who dies before the resurrection; Anyone who can think a little bit can understand it on this issue.

Some say "Our Rabb, killed us twice ..." The purpose of the verse, they think that is the Death in the grave to be questioned after life. In this case, the first death is before the tomb, the second death occur after entering the tomb; This view is false. Because the resurrection for the Judgment Day is not a resurrection from the grave to make people liable to be questioned; consequently it does not carry the sense that he regrets anything he had wasted. They had regretted the resurgence of both periods of a group, the second resurrection shows that resurrection is not to be questioned. But this verse is meant life of ric'at life that are relevant to their exuberance and their proposals. Therefore, they do not do it, and their excesses will regret the day it was served.

Again, the purpose of the two deaths, one is when it comes to death and the other dying after brought back to life. Those who deny the Ric'at, commented second death not to be before has been created. But death but must be alive before their death to be said to be alive; whereas before the creation becuase of absence they do not to be alive. There remains only this information to get rid of this contradiction.

Nahl 38-39 : "They swear their strongest oaths by Allah, that Allah will not raise up those who die: Nay, but it is a promise (binding) on Him in truth: but most among mankind realise it not." "(They must be raised up), in order that He may manifest to them the truth of that wherein they differ, and that the rejecters of Truth may realise that they had indeed (surrendered to) Falsehood."
