The holy prophet Muhammad’s grandson, Imam Husayn (PBUH) gave everything he had to save the whole mankind. He revived Islam by his blood to save the humanity, therefore each year, Shia Muslim people across the world donate blood on the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Husayn (PBUH) on the day of Ashura to save the lives of people.

Greater than Imagination...
I cannot refer to him as the leader, he is greater than this. I cannot say the he is the first person, because there is not any second person (throughout the ranks)! We cannot describe him with any description other than “The Promised Mahdi”. He is the one that God has saved for the mankind.
Sahifeh-of Imam, volume 12, p 482
God has given outstanding features (features of all prophets from first to last) to Imam Mahdi (PBUH) that has not given to any of the other Imams.
Imam Mahdi (PBUH) has inherited long life and patience from Noah, iconoclasm from Abraham, rebellion against the tyrant from Moses, judgment from Solomon, beauty and governance form Joseph, bright miracles from Jesus and uprising and universal revolution from Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). All the angels and even the angels of Badr and Uhud (Two Islamic Battles) and, in addition, 313 of special elites from all over the Islamic cities will be at his service. These are great transformations which require preparations. All these preparations must be made by Muslims and Shiites and most importantly people should be ready to accept his orders.

What kind of waiting?
The waiting that it spoken about, is not just sitting and weeping! We must prepare ourselves to become the
soldiers of Imam Mahdi (PBUH)
Awaiting for Faraj [the coming of Imam Mahdi] means to be prepared completely for the goal for which Imam Mahdi (PBUH) will rise up. That great historical revolution ...

The difference between Shiites belief in the Savior and others’
The difference that we Shiites have with other Islamic and non-Islamic sects is that we know this dear and great person; his name, his date of birth, his parents and his beloved ancestors, we know his “concerns”, but others do not know these... That's why Shiites’ resorts are "livelier" and "more enthusiastic" and "more meaningful" and "more focused"...
The basic principle of Mahdism principle is agreed on among all Muslims... But in the main part which is the "the knowledge of the Savior himself" there is inconsistent insight. Shiites, through their certain news, know the Savior by his name, specification, and his date of birth.

Ayatollah Bahjat :
What sufferings (hardships) are incurred by Imam Mahdi (PBUH) who is the owner of the whole planet earth and how does he feel and how do we feel? He is in prison and is not happy and we are absolutely ignorant…

My friend, think about your Leader’s exile during which this vast world has become a jail for him...
