Translation of the letter:
“… Is it not that one who does not recognize the original gold from fake needs to have an examen to measure its originality?! Or is it not that one who does not recognize the correct path versus the devious route needs an expert leader to show him the route?! Or is it not that one who is left in a dark place needs a bright candle light up his surrounding?! Or is it not that one who has lost his eyes needs companionship of a sighted person to take his hand?! Or is it not that one who is drowning needs a firm stronghold to grab onto?! Or does any wise person go to the sea without a boat?! Or does any blind man go to a trip without a companion?! Likewise, a person who does not recognize truth versus falsehood needs a standard to assess with it and a person who does not identify guidance versus astray needs a guide to show him the path and one who is in darkness of doubts needs a candle to illuminate and one who is blind in discerning between the truth and falsehood needs a comrade to take his hand...
Translation of the saying:
Isa bin Abdul Hameed Jawzjani informed us and said: I heard that Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani says: there is no solution for people other than a just Imam from the offspring of Ibrahim peace be upon him, whom God has appointed, and this is the covenant that God has made with him when He tested him by some words, so he finished them: “He said: Indeed I set you as an Imam for people, He said: And from among My offspring? He said: My covenant will not reach to the oppressors”, so whoever dies while he does not know this Imam, has died an ignorant death! Be aware, that Imam is not Abu Bakr Baghdadi or Muhammad Omar Qandahari or this and that -then he did not leave any of the Imams of the nations unless he mentioned their names- rather he is Mahdi! Then he used the poem from Da’bal bin Ali Khazaei as an example and said: The advent of the Imam who will inevitably come out/ will revolt in the name of God and His blessings/ will separate every right and wrong among us/ will reward good deeds and will punish bad deeds/...
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 knowledgeable one 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” and has said: “It is just that you are a warner and there is a guide for every nation” and has said: “The day when we call every group with its Imam” and has said: “And of those whom We have created, there are a number who lead to the truth and do justice with it”...
Does his honor Mansoor believe that Mahdi currently exists and is alive?! If it is so, then what is his reason for this belief?
His honor Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, regardless of Islamic sects and religions, and only by referring to the original and certain sources of Islam, believes that the earth at no time is empty of the “Caliph of God”, and his reason for this belief, on one hand, is the rational necessity of presence of God’s Caliph in the earth for teaching the whole of Islam and implementing it in pure and complete way, given that such teaching and implementation is necessary and is impossible without existence of such Caliph, and on the other hand, is the word of God who has clearly said: ﴿إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً﴾; “Undoubtedly, I set a Caliph on the earth” and this is like a promise of His which will never be violated, as He has said: ﴿لَا يُخْلِفُ اللَّهُ وَعْدَهُ﴾; “This is God’s promise and He will never violate His promise” and this is like a tradition of His which will never change; as He has said:...
I did not know his honor before and even did not hear his name! I did not see any biography nor a picture of him on the internet too! It is not known at all if such a person exists! Assuming that he exists, it also is not known if he is Shia or Sunni! What kind of pure and complete Islam is this to which he invites and in which has disproved “absolute guardianship of Faqih” and has mentioned the names of Ahl al-Bayt without “peace be upon him”?! If he is Shia, he should have mentioned the names of Ahl al-Bayt with “peace be upon him” and if he is Sunni, at least should have mentioned their names with “Allah is pleased with him”!
The fact that you did not know his excellency allamah Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani before and did not hear his name, is not a reason for him to not exist. As the wise people have said: “To not find is not the reason for to not exist”!...
﴿وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَنْ يُعْجِبُكَ قَوْلُهُ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَيُشْهِدُ اللَّهَ عَلَى مَا فِي قَلْبِهِ وَهُوَ أَلَدُّ الْخِصَامِ﴾
“And of the people is he whose speech amazes you in worldly life, and he calls God to witness as to what is in his heart, yet he is the fiercest of enemies”.
His Excellency Allamah Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, in some parts of his eternal work “Return to Islam”, introduces and discloses the nature of the enemies of Islam and, with a deep and realistic view, considers the most dangerous of them to be in the camp of Muslims themselves, namely their hypocritical traitorous rulers; because it is the rulers who make the infiltration of unbelievers among the Muslims possible and take positions and act in accordance with their interests and weaken and destroy the Islamic and reformist movements in the region. This honest scholar, in this part of his speech about the enemies of Islam points to the Muslim rulers and says:
“...Furthermore, a group of Islam’s enemies,...
