The reappearance of Imam Mahdi (May God hasten his reappearance) by Sheikism
Sheikism thought is one of the theological rudiments of Ali Muhammad Bab which led to Babism and Bahaâ€™ism, later on, of course, one of the beliefs of Sheikism cult which resulted in the emergence of false claimants and cults is the issue of transferring Imam Zamanâ€™s (P.H.) spirit in different peopleâ€™s bodies. Sheikh Ahmad Ehsaee believes: â€œImam Zaman (P.H.) is in Hebble Qrnym world at the time of absence and when he wants to come to seven lands, he covers the faces of these lands in order for anybody not to identify him. His body, time, place is more tender than the physical world.â€
Following this idea, Sheikism believes: â€œThe twelfth Imamâ€™s spirit is transmittable and transfers form one body into another one. Instead of disappearing, his spirit elects another oneâ€™s body. So, he is alive and lives.â€
This Sheikism idea opened way for everybody to claim for being Mahdi. Due to this belief some of Seyyed Kazem Rashtiâ€™s pupils continued Sheikiism thought; such as Ali Muhammad Shirazi, known as Bab, who was in 20s and prone to be ambitious. He misused Sheikism belief; that is believing in the forth pillar and the claim of the perfect Shiite. Thus, he called himself as the deputy of imam Zaman (P.H.). Consequently, Ali Muhammad Bab Shirazi created Babism sedition form which Bahaâ€™ism was originated.
Occasionally, the Babi authors have confessed that the Sheikism cult leaders are forerunners of Babism: â€œIn brief, due to the abundance of those greatest gates and Shiny moons and stars (that is Sheikh Ahmad Ehsaee and Seyyed Kazem Rashti) many people became learned persons to accept and believe in Bab.â€
Moreover, this idea encouraged Hussein Ali Nouri to claim for being Mahdi and later on prophet.
