V: Vow – Alphabet of Friendship

When will this veil be lifted?
The veil between you and I?
Could it be the veil of my sins which are blocking my path to you?
Have I created this barrier due to my own deeds?
O my Imam, I make a vow to myself, head bowed in humility,
To prepare for your return,
To pray for the hastening of your reappearance,
And to assist you, from now until when this life ends,
But is my vow merely empty words?
Will I recognise you and fulfil my promise when you physically reappear?
Increase me in faith O, my beloved,
And open my heart towards you…

Imam Mahdi (May Allah hasten his reappearance):
“Therefore, nothing keeps them far from us, except their unpleasant actions, which we are aware of and which we do not consider to be worthy.”

Al-Ihtijaj; Al-Tabarsi, Ahmad ibn Ali, Volume 2, p. 498.

الامام المهدی عليه السلام

فَمَا يَحْبِسُنَا عَنْهُمْ إِلَّا مَا يَتَّصِلُ بِنَا مِمَّا نَكْرَهُهُ وَ لَا نُؤْثِرُهُ مِنْهُم‏
