At the time of Bi'tha of the holy prophet, people were mentally and practically misled, wandered and seduced. Selfishness has made the people shaky and has made their ignorant system light and worthless. The holy Prophet selected by Allah in such a situation and he made a great effort in guiding people.
Imam Ali (peace be upon him) said: Allah sent him when there were no prophets and the people were in bed for a long. Active horse of sedition, distracted matters, distinct fire of wars, dark worlds, inclusive deception … fear inside, and fatal outside, … then the servants of Allah! Get to know.
