HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL SPEAK TO PEOPLE OVER LIVE INTERNET, TELEVISION AND RADIO CONNECTIONS
Imam Sadiq said: …THEY WILL HEAR THE WORDS OF THE IMAM IN EAST AND WEST, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE SITTING ON THEIR CHAIRS OR IN THEIR BEDS. A SINGLE VOICE WILL BE HEARD BY THEM ALL AND THEY WILL ALL MOVE TOWARD IT. Before long, in the blink of an eye, they will all enter his presence…”
(Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 53, p. 7)
In the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) people will possess a technology that enables them to hear the voice of Hazrat Mahdi (as) from where they are sitting or lying, or even from high altitudes. Present-day television, telephone, radio and computer systems can provide audio-visual live broadcasts accessible to people all over the world. In addition, according to the account in the hadith, following Hazrat Mahdi's (as) preaching of the word they will begin to behave along those lines and to exhibit such moral values. It appears from the hadith that in the time of Hazrat Mahdi (as) there will be rapid means of transport that will enable people to reach anywhere they want to go very quickly.
