Question 2: It has been stated in a hadith (tradition) that whoever dies while he does not know the Imam of his time, has died an ignorant death. What does "know" mean here? What kind of identification is it? Provide me a detailed answer, if possible.
Answer 2: It means believing in the Imamat (leadership) of the Imam of Time and accepting him as a hojjat (proof). In other words, in all times there is a perfect man who serves as a mediator between God and His creatures. He is the divine proof in whom men should believe.
