Ayatollah Faqihi:‎The true meaning of awaiting Imam al-Mahdi means to avoid sin
Rasa – A member of the Society of ‎Seminary Teachers of Qom said, “The Jewish people ‎don’t adhere to any issue other than their ‎material interests and in regard to their interests, ‎they don’t hesitate to violate the rights of ‎others.”‎

RNA – Speaking at the twenty-first session of a series of discussions on the commentary of ‎the Holy Quran ‎‎‎that were held in Qom’s Salmasi Mosque, Ayatollah Mohsen Faqihi ‎referred to ‎verse 89 of Surah al-Baqarah, which says, “And when there came to them a Book from God, ‎confirming that which is with them – and earlier they would pray for victory over the pagans ‎‎– so when there came to them what they recognized, they denied it. So may the curse of ‎God be on the faithless!”‎

The member of the Society of ‎Seminary Teachers of Qom‎ ‎stated that that due to material ‎intentions, the Jewish people denied the of the signs of the last prophet, Muhammad, and ‎didn’t follow him added, “Jews, for the sake of maintaining their wealth and power, denied ‎the signs of the Prophet Muhammad which were mentioned in the Torah.”‎
‎ ‎
Referring to the fact that the Children of Israel and the Jews knowingly and deliberately ‎committed sins, he said, “Because of their obstinacy, despite knowing the truth with all of ‎their being, they denied the truth and deviated.” ‎

Ayatollah Faqihi ‎pointed out, “The Jewish people don’t adhere to any issue other than their ‎material interests and in regard to their interests, they don’t hesitate to violate the rights of ‎others.”‎

The teacher in the Islamic Seminary‎ argued that man must always avoid haughtiness and ‎pride and stated, “Man must always protect the virtues of piety because there is no ‎guarantee that he is on the right path until the end of his life. Sometimes due to the effect of ‎lack of piety or haughtiness and pride at a certain moment, man is deviated and turns away ‎from the truth.”‎
‎ ‎
Referring to the fact that man must never consider himself safe from the evil of Satan and ‎said, “Man must not think that he is always on the path of guidance and that Satan can no ‎longer deviate him because we aren’t safe from the evil of Satan ‎for the rest of our lives.”‎
‎ ‎
Ayatollah Faqihi ‎emphasized that the actions of some people are in conflict with the culture ‎of awaiting the reappearance of Imam al-Mahdi and said, “We must always institutionalize ‎the elements of the awaiting the reappearance ‎in ourselves and realize that only reciting Du’a ‎al-Nudbah isn’t sufficient for awaiting the reappearance. That a man recites Du’a Kumayl and ‎Du’a al-Nudbah ‎and then commits a sin after a little while isn’t correct.”‎

His Eminence noted that true waiting means to avoid sin and noted, “The true believer is the ‎one who refrains from backbiting, slander, making insults and committing sins. One must ‎know that only understanding the truth isn’t sufficient but rather practicing the religious truths ‎has value.”‎
‎ ‎
He states that the divine religions confirm each other and said, “We have no opposition to ‎the other divine religions but we are strongly struggling against aggression, oppression and ‎killing.”‎
