Translation of the letter:
“They do not pluck a leaf from the tree of the religion but pull it all the way out from the root! They take a tiny chaff from people’s eyes but leave the pine tree in their own eyes! They remove a fly from people’s back but carry the camel on their own backs! They garnish their exterior but pollute their interior! In the eyes of people, they look sweeter than honey, but in behind the walls they are more bitter than Hanzal! They like the truth, but not as much as the power and they like the knowledge, but not as much as the fame! They want hereafter for others and this world for themselves! They see themselves greater than what they are and see others smaller than what they are! They want God for themselves and do not want themselves for God! They deem wisdom and ignorance equal and consider light and darkness similar! The flattery of ignorant have deceived them and they have enjoyed the splendidly titles! They prioritize expedient to Sharia and obstruct the truth with interest! They do not ever think that truth is in what they deny...
Translation of the saying:
Yunus ibn Abdullah Khatlani informed us and said: I was with Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, so he pointed to me and said: come Yunus so that I teach you your religion! So I got close to him until I sat beside him, then he took my hand like a kind father and said: know it my child that, this religion is a system like the system of beads which some of it follows some other and some of it cannot be complete without some others! Did you not see when God set His guardian, He said: “Today I completed your religion for you and concluded my grace to you and I chose Islam for you as the religion”?! So I swear to God, religion was not completed and Islam was not approved until God set His guardian! So when people got out of His guardianship, their religion became defective and Islam returned to same state which was not approved yet and today it is still in the same state! Be aware, I swear to God whom my life is in His hands that...
Translation of the lesson:
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]...
In the absence of the example of Prophet, are Mutawatir narrations proof? Meaning, is it possible to learn the religious practices by the Mutawatir narrations such as the way of praying?
God, in many verses of His Book, has emphasized the necessity of obeying His Prophet’s commandments, and for example has said: ﴿وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِنْ رَسُولٍ إِلَّا لِيُطَاعَ بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ ۚ﴾; “And we have not revealed any prophet unless to be obeyed with the permission of God” and He has said: ﴿مَنْ يُطِعِ الرَّسُولَ فَقَدْ أَطَاعَ اللَّهَ ۖ وَمَنْ تَوَلَّىٰ فَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ عَلَيْهِمْ حَفِيظًا﴾; “Anyone who obeys the Messenger, has obeyed God and anyone who turns away, We have not sent you over them as a guardian” and He has said: ﴿وَأَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ﴾; “Obey God and His Messenger, if you should be believers” and He has said: ﴿وَأَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ﴾; “And obey God and the Messenger, that you may obtain mercy”...
Allamah Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, who believes imitation of scholars is not enough, then what role or duty does he consider for them? Does he believe that Muslim scholars have no particular role and responsibility?!
Allamah Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, is one of the Muslim scholars himself, and accordingly considers the same role for them which he considers for himself, and that role is preparing the grounds for establishment of pure and complete Islam in the world through creating and maintaining the sovereignty of God’s Caliph on earth in the way which he has explained in the honorable book “Return to Islam”.
Therefore, according to him, Muslim scholars are required to invite toward the Caliph of God instead of inviting toward themselves, and spend time in creating and maintaining his sovereignty instead of creating and maintaining their own sovereignty;...
In the name of Allah the Compassionate the Merciful
Whether we want it or not, today the book “Return to Islam”, written by Allamah Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, and the ideology of return to pure and complete Islam have become a scholarly and cultural reality in the world of Islam. The reality that although is only taken seriously and followed by some Muslims today, but soon it will become a great Islamic movement. The movement that will rise against centuries of ignorance and prejudice, and will destroy the impediments to God’s sovereignty on earth. This is the beginning days of the world revolution, because the great Mahdavi revolution will be formed in the end time based on knowledge and certainty and the elimination of conjectures, heresies and deviations. The very change that because of the extent of its novelty and freshness, is called a new religion! And of course, today is the beginning of that great change...
