I present my congratulations to the Muslims and the nation of Iran for the festivity of the 15th Sha`ban that is the birthday of Imam Mahdi. Sha`ban is a great month. In this month, the great Savior of mankind is born. The issue of the disappearance of the Imam is a great matter that makes us to understand some of the issues. One of them is: Real justice should be spread in the world in its true sense. This is a great thing. There is none among mankind except Mahdi for this task- God has preserved him in reserve to carry out this mission when God deems fit his birth stands a great feast for the Muslims and mankind. When Imam Mahdi appear he will set right every perversion. He will bring man from the abyss of depravation. It is said: "He fills the earth with justice after it is replete with tyranny." All the inhabitants over the globe are in perversion. The good and perfect people are having perversion and deviation though they themselves may not be aware of. The conduct, the behavior, the belief, the actions-all is deviated. Man in his performance deviation is evident. Imam Mahdi is assigned to set right all these perversions and deviations. He will remove the torturous and sinuous things. The earth will be replete with justice in its true sense. Therefore, from this point of view, this is a feast for all Muslims. Since Mahdi will guide all the human beings, it is a feast of humanity. He will wipe out truculence and tyranny from the face of earth.
