The 4 special deputies of Imam-e-Zamana (ATF) – Part 4

By: Fatimah

The Fourth Deputy: Abul Hasan Ali Ibn Mohammad Seymori

He was appointed as the fourth special deputy of Imam Mahdi (ATF) after the demise of Hussein Ibn Rauh. He is remembered as one of companions of Imam Hasan Askari (A.S.) and the special representative of Imam Mahdi (ATF) in Baghdad.

For three years, he held the coveted post of deputyship. Unlike the previous deputies he could not perform any major task due to his truncated tenure. One of his extra ordinary feats was his prediction of Ibn Babweh's demise.

The last Tawqee from Imam (ATF) received by Ali Ibn Muhammad announced the termination of the period of minor occultation. Its contents are as follows:

“In the name of god the Beneficent, the Merciful:

O Ali Ibn Muhammad Seymori May increase the reward of your brothers on account of the difficulties born by you. You will die within six days. Regulate your affairs and sum them up. Do not make a will to anybody. After you, this chain (of special deputyship) will end and it will mark the beginning of the major occultation. Now, I will re-appear on divine command. But that will be after a long time when the hearts of the people will become hardened and the world will become full of injustice, tyranny and oppression. Yes! There will be some who will claim to be my special deputies. Whoever claims to consult me before the emergence of Sufyani and the heavenly Voice, he is a deceiver and liar. There is no power and strength except that of Allah, the Al-mighty the High.”

This is the last letter received from Imam (ATF) in the minor occultation.

After three years of deputyship, Ali Ibn Muhammad Seymori died in Sahaban, 329 A.H. He is buried on the Khalanji Highway near Babul Mahool on the banks of the Abi Eqaab River. He lived during the reign of Muttaqui, the Abbasid Caliph.

"Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."
