Waiting for Imam Mahdi (atfs) with patience

Imam Ali Reza (a.s.) said:
How good is patience and awaiting for the reappearance! Have you not heard Allah, the Mighty and Sublime say?
And watch, surely I too am watching with you
(Surah Hud 11:93)
Wait then, I too with you will be of those who wait.
(Surah Araaf 7:71)
Thus you must be patient because there is deliverance after despair and
those before you were more patient than you.

- Kamaluddeen, Ch. 55, Tr. 5 / B. Anwar, V. 52, Pg 110, Tr. 17 -

Oppression on Fatima (s.a.)

Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.a.) was taken to the heavens in Meraj and was told: Indeed Allah (s.w.t) will test you with afflictions to see how patient you are
"....As for your daughter, she will be oppressed and deprived, they will usurp her rights. He will beat her while she is pregnant. Her sanctity will be breached and her house will be trespassed without permission and she will be humiliated and disrespected. She will find no protector, will suffer from a miscarriage because she will be beaten and she will die as a result of that beating."
- Kamiluz Ziyaraat, Chapter 108, Tradition 11, page 548 -

Entering in the house of Fatema (s.a.) without permission

The companions of Qunzuf returned back to Abu Bakr and Umar, who were seated in the Masjid with a group of men, and said that Ali (a.s.) had not permitted them to enter his house. Hearing this Umar said,
“Return back to the house of Ali, and if he does not permit you,
enter therein without permission”.
