Imam Sadiq stated: "Qaim Mahdi (pbuh) will extend his hand... HIS HAND WILL BE SEEN IN A BRILLIANT WHITENESS. Then, Mahdi (pbuh) will declare: This hand is the hand of God, from the God and created by God upon the order of God. Then, he will recite the following verse:
- Those who pledge you their allegiance pledge allegiance to God. God’s hand is over their hands. He who breaks his pledge only breaks it against himself. But as for him who fulfils the contract he has made with God, We will pay him an immense reward.
