In my recent exposé of the Iranian documentary The Coming is Upon Us, I noted that the film informed Muslims throughout the world that the end times are near. I also showed that “Seyed Khoarasani” — the mythical figure who will create the conditions for the end of times and the reappearance of the last Islamic messiah, the Shiites’ 12th Imam, by destroying Israel and the West — was revealed to be Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei. (See my articles here and here, as well as PJTV coverage here.)
Many of the Hadith, both from Sunni and Shiite sources, conclude that the figure “Seyed Khorasani” is the leader of the people in the East, or one of their high ranking officials who will pass on the flag of Islam to the last messiah. The Hadith also point out that Seyed Khorasani is from the province of Khorasan and has a sign or a disorder on his right hand. Ayatollah Khamenei is from the province of Khorasan and has a disorder of his right hand due to the injury he received in an assassination attempt in 1981.
Some in the West have refused to accept the Iranian documentary as the official position of the Iranian regime, and until now, the Iranian authorities have been very careful not to make any strong statements to further verify the statements made in the movie. At first, many in the Iranian establishment objected to the production as it revealed their true ideology to the West. As I reported, the movie’s producers clearly stated that they had been authorized by the offices of supreme leader and the Iranian president to go ahead with the project.
However, the supreme leader’s position regarding the movie, including the description in the Hadith that he is that mythical figure, has only now been officially confirmed.
