prophet after thee. I then instilled his love in thy heart making him the father of your grandchildren. Therefore, his right upon thy nation is like thy right upon them during lifetime. Whomsoever shalt dispute his right has disputed your right. Whomsoever, refuses to support him has refused to support thee, and he who refuses to support thee has refused to enter paradise."
I then fell down in prostration showing my gratitude to the Almighty Allah for the great favour upon me. At that same time a voice announced, "Raise thy heard O Muhammad! Ask me and I shalt grant thee!"
I called, "O my Lord! Unite my people after me under the leadership of Ali the son of Abu Talib so that they may all come to drink from my pond together on the day of judgement."
"O Muhammad! Indeed I have decreed upon my servants before I created them and my decree shalt come to pass. I shalt destroy with it whomsoever I wish and I shalt guide whomsoever I wish. I have granted him your knowledge after you upon your family and nation as a firm decision from me. I shalt enter into paradise whoever loves him and I will not enter into paradise whoever hates him, fights him, or disputes his leadership after you. Whoever angers him angers you and whoever angers you angers me. Whoever wages war against him has waged war against you and whoever wages war against you has waged war against me. Whoever loves him has loved you and whoever loves you has loved me. I have granted him this favour and I have granted you the favour of producing from him twelve rightly guided personalities and they are all from your progeny from your pure daughter. The last man from among them will have the honour of leading Jesus the son of Mary in prayers. He shall spread justice on earth just as evil and oppression had been widespread. It is through him that I shall save from destruction and through him that I shalt guide from darkness. I shalt grant sight to the blind through him and cure the sick."
I said, "O my Lord and Master! When shall that be?"
He said, "This will happen at the time when knowledge shall vanish while ignorance shall be rife, the number of those who preach what they do not practise shall multiply, and good deeds shall be scarce. Killing shall be rife. Scholars and guides shall be few while deceptive and misguiding scholars will increase, poets will increase, and their graves shall be turned into Mosques, Qur'an will be decorated and Mosques will be adorned with beauty and indecency and corruption will be widespread. Evil shall spread and you nation shall encourage towards it while they shall prevent from good. Men shall desire man while women shall desire women. The leaders shall become clear apostates and their ministers evil, and their helpers oppressors and bureaucratic. They advisors shall be hypocrites. At that time there shall be three lunar eclipses in the East and one in the West, and another in the Arabian peninsular. Basra shall fall at the hands of a man from your progeny whose followers shall be black. A man from the children of Husain shall appear, and so shall the Dajjal appear from the Eastern region of Sajistan. The Safavids will also appear."
I said, "O my Lord! How long after me shall this evil be?"
He then informed me about the Umayyad rule, the fitnah regarding my uncle's son Abbas, what will be and what should have been until the day of judgement. I then informed my uncle's son all this when I returned to earth
