All Praise is due to Allah and May He send down His choicest blessings on Muhammad and his Holy Progeny. The present book is a translation of a chapter by the name of Anticipation from the valuable two-volume book called Secrets of Success by Hujjatul Islam wal Muslimin Sayyid Murtada Mujtahidi Sestani (May Allah Protect him).
The author of the book in addition to the mentioned book has authored many other valuable books in the service of Islam and the Ahlul Bayt (AS) which have, as a result, guided many of those on the path to Truth and towards their being able to drink from the clear spring of the Islamic Sciences. This is such that his works have become a foundation and base for those in search of excellence and knowledge.
The chapter on Anticipation of the reappearance of the Imam of the Age (AS) has been translated and printed into many languages namely Urdu, Arabic etc but the people of the West, whose main language is English, have been deprived of the benefit of this work. It is for this reason that we requested that Mrs. Naimah Iman translate this section of this valuable work into English so that all of the oppressed people under the leadership of tyrants, who have been deprived of the benefit of Islamic knowledge can be enlightened so that the despots of the world can recognize that the exploited people are not alone and never will be alone.
It is hoped that by grasping onto the delightful rope of the Qur’an and the Ahlul Bayt (AS) that they can create the fragrant atmosphere of hope and anticipation so that the Islamic world can also exude this aromatic fragrance and all can benefit from the cool breeze of divine beneficence and can intelligently follow and understand the divine laws
(وَ لَقَدْ كَتَبْنَا فيِ الزَّبُوْرِ مِنْ بَعْدِ الذِّكْرِ اَنَّ الاَرْضَ يَرِثُهَا عِبَادِيَ الصَّالِحُوْنَ )
Before this we wrote in the Psalms after the Message (given to Moses): My servants the righteous, shall inherit the earth."(1)
In anticipation of that fragrant day
Muhammad Hussain Haidry
