Imam -e- Zamana (asws) – The Cause of Survival of the Universe

The Imam or the divine representative is needed not merely for the dissemination of the rules of the Shariah and their compliance. That is, his duty is not confined only to the guidance of the world but the whole creation depends upon him for their existence. If Imam ceases to exist, the entire system would collapse. It is related from Imam Muhammad alBaqir (A.S.) that he stated, “If Imam (A.S.) is absent from the world even for a
moment, the earth would suck in all its inhabitants like the stormy sea drowns the
seafarers.
