Why Imam Mehdi (AS) is called as Muntazir?
Shabestan news: The waiter is a symbol of morality. When Imam Jawwad (AS) was asked about Imam Mehdi (AS) 's name, he replied: Because the duration of his disappearance is more and more, and those who are waiting are waiting for them, and those who disbelieve, their rejection and the disbelievers are going to make fun of his remembrance.
According to the reports of Shabestan news Allah says in Quran Surah Araf that
:«قَالَ قَدْ وَقَعَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ رِجْسٌ وَغَضَبٌ أَتُجَادِلُونَنِي فِي أَسْمَاءٍ سَمَّيْتُمُوهَا أَنْتُمْ وَآبَاؤُكُمْ مَا نَزَّلَ اللَّهُ بِهَا مِنْ سُلْطَانٍ فَانْتَظِرُوا إِنِّي مَعَكُمْ مِنَ الْمُنْتَظِرِينَ»(1)
Hud said: "O Your Lord has given wrath on you, Do you dispute with me about the names which you and your fathers have kept? God has not sent down any argument about you, so you can wait for me. I will wait too.
Imam Reza (AS) said: "How patience and waiting for Imam are such good acts are you? You have not heard that Abdul Salih said «انتَظروا اِنَّی مَعَکُم مِنَ المنتَظِرین)! So I will also wait with you in the waiters. (2)
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
«افضَلُ العِبادةِ انتِظارُ الفَرَج) Waiting for Allah is the Most Beneficent. (3)
