Foundations and Purposes of Imam Mahdi’s (a) Global Governmen
"And indeed We wrote in the Psalm (Zabur) after the reminder that My righteous servants shall inherit the earth." (21:105)
Allah confirmed that He will revive the earth and will give it a true life after it has become dead as a result of corruption by mankind:
In a number of verses in Quran Allah has emphasized that what He has promised will certainly take place. For instance:
"Verily that which you are promised is true. (51:5)"
"And Allah shall never break His Promise. (22:47)"
"Surely, Allah shall never fail to keep the promised event. (3:9)"
"Glory to our Lord! Truly the promise of our Lord is a fulfilled one! (17:108)"
Besides the indications in the Quran and the early scriptures, the testimonies of the last Apostle of Allah (PBUH&HF) that have been narrated by all Islamic schools in numerous traditions leave no doubt that this promise will be fulfilled by the hand of a man from his progeny. The Sunnis have narrated:
The Apostle of Allah (PBUH&HF) said, "Even if only one day has remained for the duration of the world's existence, Allah shall prolong that day to send a person from my Ahl al-Bait whose name is the same as my nameâ€¦ He shall fill out the earth with peace and justice just as it has been filled with injustice and tyranny."
The above tradition shows that although Allah may delay this divine promise even as much as the last days of the world's duration, nevertheless it will certainly take place. As such, all the true believers should expect its happening through the hands of the Mahdi of the family of Muhammad (PBUH&HF).
