Understanding and insight in light of the guidance of the Qur’ān and the Ahl al-Bayt (A.S.), have genuine signs which would lead to human happiness. Denotation of the supplication, ‚Allāhumma ‘arrifnī nafsak …‛ (O Allah! Make Yourself known to me …) to the necessity of knowing the Imam for knowing the Prophet and God, is very alarming; it regards knowing the Imam as an introduction to guidance and deliverance from being misled. This research is intended to delineate a secure entrance to the future that is supposed to lead to the sovereignty of the pious on earth. In this approach, knowledge about the Imam and awaiting his reappearance denotes the capacity for foreseeing and moving toward the path, the manner and rules of movement; as the real awaiter is the one who knows the rights of the Imam and the rules of moving towards reappearance. Thus, the strategy for entering the promised future is an epistemological strategy based on mindfulness and awareness; and, it can even be claimed that the increase of the maturity and awareness of the followers would cause the decrease in the awaiting period.
