Various verses of the Holy Quran imply to the principle of Raj`at. The verse 82 of Surah An-Naml is one of the verses in which it is pointed to the emergence of “beast of the earth”. The word “beast” means a live creature attributable to humans and non-humans. Regarding whatness of “earth live creature” and the manner of its plan and mission, the Holy Quran briefly says that: it is an animated and living creature God makes it to be appeared on the eve of Raj`at. He speaks with people and his words imply that people would not believe in the revelation of God. Given the context of the verse and what is received from narrations, emergence of “beast of earth” is an event being mentioned as one of the signs of Raj`at and certainly, it will be before the Raj`at. This matter could be nothing except return (to God) to which many narrations refer to.
