هَلْ يَنظُرُونَ إِلاَّ أَن تَأْتِيهُمُ الْمَلآئِكَةُ أَوْ يَأْتِيَ رَبُّكَ أَوْ يَأْتِيَ بَعْضُ آيَاتِ رَبِّكَ يَوْمَ يَأْتِي بَعْضُ آيَاتِ رَبِّكَ لاَ يَنفَعُ نَفْسًا إِيمَانُهَا لَمْ تَكُنْ آمَنَتْ مِن قَبْلُ أَوْ كَسَبَتْ فِي إِيمَانِهَا خَيْرًا قُلِ انتَظِرُواْ إِنَّا مُنتَظِرُونَ
“Wait they, indeed, (to see) that the angels come to them, or that your Lord (Himself) comes, or that some signs of your Lord come? On the day when some of the signs of your Lord come, belief will not profit any soul who did not believe before, or did not earn any good by its belief. Say (O Mohammed), ‘Wait, verily we too are waiting”
Imam Sadiq (as) said, “Some signs of your Lord” refer to the Imams (as), and the awaited sign who comes refers to the Qaem (as). On that day, those who had not believed before the rising of the Qaem (as) which will take place by sword, will not benefit from their belief, even if they believed in his fathers” (Kamaluddin volume 2 page 336)
Imam Sadiq (as) said, “On the day when some of the signs of your Lord come, belief will not profit any soul who did not believe before, or did not earn any good by its belief” refers to the rising of our awaited Qaem (as).
O Aba Baseer! Bliss and happiness is for the Shia of our Qaem (as) who wait during his occultation for his reappearance and who obey him after his reappearance. They are the friends of Allah (and) “for the friends of Allah there is no fear, nor shall they be grieved”(Chapter 10, verse 62) (Kamaluddin volume 2 page 337)
