I ('Ali) said to him: What is that announcement? 

He replied: It is three voices in Rajab. The first is, "Behold! May the curse of Allah be upon the transgressors!" The second is, "The time has come!"  The third time they shall see a body appearing with the sun (above the sun) and a voice announcing, "Behold!
