The life of Imam al-Zaman (a.s.) during the lifetime of Imam Askari is of special importance due to the special conditions of Imam Askari's era and the pressure and suffocation prevailing in that era. It is necessary to prove the birth of Imam Asr (AS) and his existence, considering the doubts of some Sunnis, especially Wahhabis. For this purpose, we can rely on the traditions and historical reports related to the birth and visits of Hazrat Wali Asr (AS) at that time. Authentic narrations describing the birth and meetings of Imam Zaman (a.s.) with the Shiites during the time of Imam Askari are frequent and leave no room for doubt in this matter. By reviewing these reports, it becomes clear; Imam al-Zaman (a.s.) - with the wise measures of Imam Askari - were spared from the evil of the enemies and the government of the age, and at the same time, the birth of the Imam of the age and his existence were proven for the Shiites and anyone who is searching for the truth.
