Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani

(80) Those who wholeheartedly believe in this Islamic movement and have found the thoughts and ideals of Allamah Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani in accordance with the pure Islam of Mohammad, should consider themselves to be rationally and religiously obliged to agree and cooperate with him in practice and do not play only the role of an indifferent audience outside the field who looks at his beloved hero from afar and wishes him victory in an unequal battle empty-handed against an army armed to the teeth!

Another excerpt from his Honor’s letter in which he emphasizes on the necessity of recognizing the truth and falsehood.

Translation of the letter:

I am a will-wishing brother for you. I call you to distinguish the truth from falsehood so that you do not perish, and I invite to recognize the truthful person from a liar so that you do not remain in loss; because you have always been in loss from the first day up to now; as your Lord has said: ﴿إِنَّ الْإِنْسَانَ لَفِي خُسْرٍ﴾[1] and your deliverance from loss is contingent upon two things, as flying of birds in the sky is contingent on two wings, and the two things are verily faith and righteous deed; as He has said: ﴿إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ﴾[2].

But faith is to believe in the truth and disbelieve in falsehood and this is achieved only by recognizing the truth and falsehood, and but righteous deed is nothing but practicing the prerequisites of the truth and abstaining from the prerequisites of falsehood, and this also is achieved only by recognizing the truth and falsehood. Therefore, recognizing the truth and falsehood is the foundation of faith and righteous deed and these two begin with cognition...

Saying of the day
Sayings
Ten sayings from his Honor about sects and the fact that he is a true Muslim and is not considered a Shia or Sunni in the common meanings.

Translation of the saying:

1. Momin ibn Mahmoud and Abdullah ibn Habib both informed us, they said: We were with Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani in his house, then we mentioned sects, so he said: Do not let the sects take you (away like flood)! Indeed, God selected a religion for you and perfected it for you and set a specific border for it like the borders of my house; so whatever is in the alley, it belongs to the alley and whatever is in the house, it belongs to the house!

Explanation of the saying:

The meaning of his Honor from this luminous saying is that the borders of Islam are clear by mutawatir speeches from God and His Prophet, and they will never increase or decrease and with this description, whatever is in it, it is from Islam although it is not in your sect, and whatever is not in it, it is not from Islam although it is in your sect...

Translation of the lesson:

[Narration 7]

But the seventh narration is that which Muhammad ibn Ali ibn Bābawayh [Died in 381 AH] has narrated in the book of “Kamāl al-Din wa Tamām al-Ni’mah” (in this way that) has said: Muhammad ibn Hasan ibn Ahmad ibn Walid may God be pleased with him, narrated to us, he said: Sa’d ibn Abdullah narrated to us, from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isā, from Abbās ibn Ma’ruf, from Ibrahim ibn Mahziār, from his brother Ali ibn Mahziār, from Hasan ibn Bashshār al-Wāsiti that said:

Husayn ibn Khālid, while I was present, said to Ridhā — meaning Ali ibn Musā — peace be upon him: Does the earth remain empty of Imam? So he said: No.

[Consideration]

Mansoor may God protect him, said: Ibrahim ibn Mahziār is accepted by them, and this phrase has been narrated through other than him from Ja’far ibn Muhammad peace be upon them.

Question and Answer of the day
Questions and answers

Question:

I have some questions about the knowledge of the unseen:

1. Did the Prophet have the knowledge of the unseen?

2. Did the Imams (of Ahl al-Bayt) have the knowledge of the unseen?

3. In case someone has the knowledge of the unseen, like if I realize that the Caliph has the knowledge of the unseen, then how can I have free will to do good deeds and avoid bad deeds? There would be no growth in this case.

Thank you

Answer:

The meaning of “the knowledge of the unseen”, is having knowledge about the matters that gaining knowledge about them is impossible for human through natural means, like knowledge of the past events that have not been narrated, and the present events that are hidden from human’s eyes and ears,...

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,...

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;...

If someone has to get married temporary, is it obligatory to help him or not? 4. Is it okay if someone does not want to get married permanently and gets married temporary? 5.

Criticisms & investigations
Why did his Excellency Ali not try Uthman’s killers?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?...
