The present article is an attempt to figure out the three Quranic promises in the light of two important commentaries of Al-Mizan and Ruh al-Ma'ani. Those three Quranic promises are that Islam shall prevail over all religions (chapter al-Towbah, verse 33), the righteous servants shall inherit the earth (chapter al-Anbiya, verse 105), and that He will surely make faithful believers successors in the earth (chapter al-Noor, verse 55). Now the question is whether these three promises constitute only one message and that is the rule of Islam over the whole world? Or are there three separate messages? The result of this research is that the three promises, according to Allameh Tabatabai's point of view, have a connected message that will be implemented during the advent of Hazrat Mahdi (May Allah hasten his appearance). But from Alusi's point of view, despite the authentic narrations reported by the Shiite and Sunnite sources, these three verses are separate and address three different issues. He has not given a clear viewpoint on the dominance of religion, but regarding the other two verses, he believes that the righteous people will inherit and will be successors in the heaven.
Keywords: verses related to Mahdism, the prevalence of Islam over religions, comparative interpretation.
