August 22: the Second Coming of the 12th Imam

On August 22, Iran will give its response to the UN and the world regarding the proposal for Iran to end its nuclear program. Interestingly, August 22 (Rajab 27, 1427) is the day Muslims celebrate Mohammed’s ascension into Heaven called the Miraj (the second coming of the 12th Imam).

According to Islamic tradition, Muhammad was carried on a miraculous horse with a human head, from Mecca to Jerusalem, where he ascended into heaven and met the other prophets.

And now, according to Ghadry, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is planning to illuminate the night sky over Jerusalem to rival the one that greeted the Prophet of Islam on his journey. (A great light shone upon Mohammed’s body in the Aqsa Mosque and a prophet was received while his followers cheered.) Ghadry believes the remaking of that divine light will happen on August 22 and will be Iran's answer to the package of incentives offered by the international community on June 6.

What would light up the sky over Jerusalem with regard to Iranian involvement?

A couple interesting sidelight to this post:

  • It has been reported that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was in North Korea July 4th when Kim Jong tested seven missiles.

  • Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has repeatedly announced a surprise is on the way for Israel.

Glad to see you are back to posting. Did you, by chance, try to call me at work this morning? I was told I had a call from you coming my way, but when I picked it up, there was nothing there?

Peace, brother.

interesting stuff, I had heard financial news people mention the 22nd as an important day because if Iran is fiesty, it will hurt the market. so I decided to switch out my mutual funds timed so that they won't be invested that day. paranoid...maybe.

Have any news media mentioned Iran/UN and August 22nd in correlation with the London Terror Plot. I guess it wouldn't be assumed even though some think Iran is behind everything terror (who knows)

Could the 12th Imam be the anti-christ, 666. I know that Mohammmad came into power around 650 AD or so, but I think the 12th Imam did not comem into power on 666AD. Looks like 1st through say the 6th imam came into power close to 666AD. Odd huh. Anyone know the birthdate of the 12th Imam? If you do, what is that birth date according to the Jewish, Muslim, and Christian calenders? 666 come up?
