A Sign of Materialism's
What is meant by "the letters of the Basmillah"
may be the people's stance toward Islamic
morality and the condition of their faith.
Indeed, in a period when the people's faith
weakens, the Mahdi will appear and ideologically
eliminate those movements. Considered from
this viewpoint, this hadith may indicate
materialism's and Darwinism's amazing strength
on the people.
One, and perhaps the most important, duty
of the Mahdi, is to prepare the ground for
Prophet Jesus (pbuh) by eliminating these
philosophical and intellectual movements.
