A member of Iran’s Assembly of Experts said on July 31 on Iran’s Ofogh TV Channel that in order for the Hidden Imam to appear, Muslims must engage in “widespread conflict” with the West.
Mohammad Mehdi Mirbagheri, who is on the Assembly of Experts, a governmental body comprising of Islamic jurists, said: “In order for the Hidden Imam to appear, we must engage in widespread conflict with the West. This conflict is not just a military conflict, but it is [also] a political, cultural, and economic one. If we had to go to a military war in defence of our beliefs, it would be completely moral.”
