(21) The existence of twelve caliphs for the Prophet is based on Mutawatir narrations which have been narrated by all Muslims with differences in their religions, and of course it is in accordance with the tradition of God in the past nations, and with this description, there is no doubt in its correctness and authenticity.

According to the rule which Allamah may God protect him has mentioned regarding the advent of Imam Mahdi, that his advent does not require the gathering of all people and requires the gathering of a sufficient number of them, some questions have arisen for me, which are as follows: 1. Is the quantity and quality of this sufficient number known for him or is its knowledge with God? 2. Did this sufficient number not exist in the time of the caliphs of the past? Given that the caliphs of the past had a large force at times in history, for example, Imam Ali in Siffin had about 130,000 men, Imam Hassan in the war with Mu‘awiya had about 12,000 men, Imam Hussain in Kufa had about 18,000 men, Imam Sadiq during the Khorasani uprising had about 100,000 Khorasanis who wanted him to rise up, even during the absence of Imam Mahdi, the Shia community got organized and ready for the advent many times, for example, during the Safavid period, waiting and readiness for the advent were high, to the point that the great scholars of the Shia such as Majlisi and others, believed it was time for the advent and the Safavid were preparers of the ground for the advent; because most of the narrations corresponded to the conditions of their time, but it did not happen. With this introduction, please explain where the problem were and what were the shortcomings that the Imams of Ahl al-Bayt did not achieve their goals? 3. Do we not have the shortcomings of the past? 4. What is so special about our generation that did not exist in them, while they seem to be better than us physically and mentally? Considering the difficult conditions and the complexity of the situation and our physical and mental weakness that have been created over time, we need God’s special grace as well as Imam Mahdi’s special attention may we be his sacrifice in order to provide a sufficient number of helpers who have not any equals in the pas eras. From every side I went, I gained nothing but terror I seek refuge from this desert and the infinite path I lost my way in this dark night Oh you the guidance star, rise from a corner[1]
