Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani

(26) Whether Mahdi exists at this time or not, sitting and waiting for him is not allowable, rather preparing grounds for his advent is obligatory for the community of justice-seekers of the world and it means preparing the necessary arrangements to provide his safety and fulfillment of his sovereignty after the advent.

Letters
A part of his letter in which he forbids Muslims from ignorance and calls them to achieve knowledge and recognition of truth and falsehood.

Translation of the letter:

In the name of Allah the beneficent the most merciful

Oh my God and God of my fathers those who passed! And God of skies raised by pillars which cannot be seen! And God of ablaze sun and shining moon and abundant stars! And God of extended lands which some are on the top of some others and are attached together by some nails! And God of deep and widespread oceans and whatever is floating on and in them! And God of great seas with raging waves and beautiful islands and sandy beaches and rivers which pour at them! And God of high mountains with snowy peaks and steep slopes and dark valleys and dangerous headlands and big rocks which are put next to them! And God of lush forests with dense trees and dark deeps and every creature which is moving in them! And God of vast deserts with waterless area and eroded soil and sifted shrubs[1] and sand storms which are blowing on them!...

↑[1] . The purpose is the dried shrubs that are shaken by the wind like in a sieve and wind separates their leaves from the stem or like the unrooted and bewildering shrubs that spiral around in wind and throw them up and down, as if wind is sieving them.
Saying of the day
Sayings
Four sayings from his honor about the fact that opinion and narration will not make anyone needless of Caliph of God on earth even though there be no access to him.

Translation of the saying:

Walid bin Mahmoud Sijistani informed us and said: Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani said: Almighty God has set neither opinion nor narration rather He has set a Caliph on earth to decree among people! "In that case, should one find no access to Caliph of God, what would make one needless of him then?" I said. "Almighty God has not set a Caliph on earth unless to be accessible and whoever does not have access to him is like one who is thirsty and has not found water yet; Do you ever think that gravels and sand would make one needless of water?! Not at all, I swear to God and one would die of thirst and two rams would not butt for one's dead body." He replied.

Explanation of the saying:

It is understood from this genuine wisdom that people's need for Caliph of God on earth is a natural need like the need for water...

Translation of the lesson:

[Introduction]

A group of our helpers informed us, they said: Mansoor Hashemi khorasani may God protect him, dictated us in some of his assemblies, so he said:

In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful

Praise to Allah, the Lord of the world and peace be upon Muhammad and his pure family, but after that, remember -O servants of God- that God has wisdom and grace, and it has been due to His wisdom and grace that He has not left the earth since He made Adam peace be upon him inhabit in it, without a just scholar that has made him an Imam for them, so that he guides them, and one of the things that implies it, is His saying that has said: “Indeed, I am the Appointer of a Caliph on earth” [Al-Baqarah/ 30] and has said: “It is just that you are a warner and there is a guide for every nation” [Ar-Ra’d/ 7] and has said: “The day when we call every group with its Imam” [Al-Isra/ 71] and has said: “And of those whom We have created, there are a number who lead to the truth and do justice with it” [Al-A’raf/ 181]...

Criticism and Investigation of the day
Criticisms and investigations

Criticism:

1- From page 250 to page 253 [of the book “Return to Islam”] the infallibility of the Prophets is discussed. The Imamiyyah Shia consider the Prophets infallible from any kind of mistake or sin, either major or minor, intentionally or inadvertently, before and after the prophecy, and consider the mentioned cases about sin or their honors asking forgiveness from the kind of failure to do the better. What is his honor’s opinion about this belief?

2- In page 252, it is mentioned about Prophet David (peace be upon him) having ninety-nine wives, asked his brother to divorce his only wife in order to marry her. The question that rises is how can an infallible Prophet have such a request from his brother?! What is the justification for such an action?!

 It is not mentioned like this in the Shia’s commentaries, but it is quoted by Imam Reza (peace be upon him) that his Excellency David (peace be upon him), since those two persons came up from the wall of his house and quickly came to him for judgment, became anxious and although he made a right judgment,...

Question and Answer of the day
Questions and answers

Question:

After I studied the book “Return to Islam”, I have become very precise with narrations, such that whenever I confront a narration, I think it may be Wahid or incorrect. Please guide me.

Answer:

We appreciate your honor and let us remind you that the increase in your precision and cautiousness in confronting with the narrations, is very blessed and praiseworthy. Because it demonstrates an increase in your God-fearing in your religion and it shows that now you act more wisely than the past; With regards to the fact that heedlessness of someone in accepting the narrations, considering the probability of their fakeness or weakness, not only does not stem from his or her religiosity, rather it stems from his or her carelessness in his or her religion and this is contrary to the common illusion that exists among the public; Because their perception is that necessity of religiosity is to accept every narration even if that narration is Wahid or weak, whereas such a narration only brings about conjecture...

Mahdi, the axis of unity of Muslims
Mohammad Sajjad Amel

The valuable book “Return to Islam” written by the wise thinker Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani has been published in a situation in which the world of Islam is in a deep negligence about the promised person of the end of time, his Excellency Mahdi peace be upon him, and considers absolutely no role for him in its political and cultural equations, or if it does, it has forgotten his Excellency’s role. There is no doubt that believing in his Excellency is one of the greatest points of commonality among the Muslims of the world and a turning point in their relations; therefore I decided to write a short article by the inspiration from the firm and lightning foundations of this book about the unprecedented role of his Excellency Mahdi peace be upon him regarding unity of the Muslims of the world as path to Imam Mahdi’s advent.

In the current situation of the world of Islam, it seems that the Muslims of the world need to, first and foremost, abandon their archaic disputes and forget the old conflicts which are buried deep in the past centuries and eras;...

Criticisms & investigations
God introduces, in the verse 46 of Surah Al-Baqarah, the humble individuals as those who have conjecture on meeting their God and returning to Him. Whereas, according to the saying of his Excellency, achieving certainty in religion is obligatory, and according to the verses that are mentioned repeatedly in the book, conjecture has no place in Islam. Please explain how these two come together?According to the rule which Allamah may God protect him has mentioned regarding the advent of Imam Mahdi, that his advent does not require the gathering of all people and requires the gathering of a sufficient number of them, some questions have arisen for me, which are as follows: 1. Is the quantity and quality of this sufficient number known for him or is its knowledge with God? 2. Did this sufficient number not exist in the time of the caliphs of the past?...With respect 1. What is the opinion of Allamah about the Muslims’ wars after the Prophet? 2. Is the Caliphs’ proceeds in war makings, which accidentally has led to extension of Islam, acceptable? 3. Does the law of murder, which is mentioned in Qur’an, mean attack, rape and exterminating?
Q&A
Is it possible to pray Salah with Friday ghusl and other obligatory and recommended ghusls? What is the law on performing wudhu after ghusl of janābah or ghusls that suffice from wudhu? Is it futile? What does it mean?What is the law on smoking, hookah and opium and buying and selling them?I am a man of pulpit and one of the devotees of his Excellency allamah Khorasani may God protect him, and sometimes in my preachings I use luminous sayings and eloquent sermons of this honorable man in order to make people aware of the true teachings of Islam, but unfortunately, considering the existing security conditions in Iran and the poisoned atmosphere they have created against this oppressed scholar, I am not able to mention his Honor’s name and cannot quote these things explicitly from his Honor;...
