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.
On Tuesday, April 12, Mojtaba Zolnoor, the representative of Iranian leader Ayatollah Khamenei in the Revolutionary Guards Corps, told the Iranian regime-run news outlet Khabar Online that a number of the Ulama (Islamic scholars) and authoritative grand ayatollahs have announced that Ali Khamenei is quite possibly the fabled “Seyed Khorasani.” According to the Islamic Hadith, Khorasani is an individual from the region who is not only a companion of the Mahdi (or 12th Imam), but is responsible for setting the stage for the Mahdi’s emergence.
Zolnoor also stated that the producers of the controversial documentary are of the same opinion, claiming that Khamenei and Seyed Khorasani are one and the same.
During the past year believers have related and compared dozens of Shiite anecdotes to the world’s current conditions in an attempt to prove their point. Reportedly, Khamenei himself knows that he is Seyed Khorasani but humbly prefers not to discuss it.
With Ayatollah Khamenei officially taking a position on this, there can be no doubt that the Iranian regime is truly messianic and that once they have their nuclear bomb, they will attempt to bring about the end of times and the reappearance of Imam Mahdi, as they have clearly shown in the movie. They intend to do this by destroying Israel and bringing about a total breakdown of the global economy.
