Hojjatoleslam Rohollah Hosseinian, Head of the Islamic Revolution Documents Center, said that the crisis and events in Syria are a sign of the imminent arrival of the Mahdi. According to Hosseinian, preparations should be made. He further added that according to Imam Sadegh (the sixth Imam), when the carriers of the yellow flags (Hezbollah) in Damascus confront the anti-Shiite groups, Iranian forces will join them, and this is a sign of the coming of the Mahdi. “We see today that the carriers of the yellow flags, i.e. Hezbollah Lebanon, are fighting anti-Shiite groups in Damascus. This might point to the Mahdi’s arrival, and we must prepare for this. Although the arrival of the Mahdi is a good thing, preparations depend on the behavior and actions of the Iranian people.” According to Shiite belief, Imam Mahdi, the 12th Imam, went into occultation in the 10th century and they anticipate his “messianic” reappearance to bring order and justice to Earth).
