Translation of the letter:
Behold oh people! Be cautious; because you have followed your religion without a guidance from God and have stepped into the unknown routes and have lost your essence in the midst of changes of the era and have broken under the pressures of the world conflicts and now have become the followers of the people whom God has not asked you to follow, therefore your guardians have taken you out from light to darkness and have legislated for you in religion what God has not given permission to; as God has said: ﴿أَمْ لَهُمْ شُرَكَاءُ شَرَعُوا لَهُمْ مِنَ الدِّينِ مَا لَمْ يَأْذَنْ بِهِ اللَّهُ ۚ وَلَوْلَا كَلِمَةُ الْفَصْلِ لَقُضِيَ بَيْنَهُمْ ۗ وَإِنَّ الظَّالِمِينَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ﴾; “Or do they have other deities who have ordained for them parts of a religion to which God has not consented? But if it was not for the decisive word, it would have been judged between them. And indeed, the wrongdoers and oppressors will have a painful punishment”.
Indeed the warner warned and truth was introduced and falsehood was embarrassed;...
Translation of the saying:
One of our helpers informed us and said: I saw Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani leaning on a berry tree and advising a group of people and saying:
“Oh you servants of God who are being busy gathering wealth and competing to achieve power! Be aware that your life is unstable, and your death is close. Graves have been dug for you and shrouds have been made for you. Soon this world which you suffered for and oppressed for and lied for and ruined other people’s reputations for, will turn its back to you and will abandon you. Neither it becomes sorry for your inertia after your motion nor it becomes upset about your coldness after your warmth. It does not sorrow on your children if they become orphans and it does not regret for your wives if they become widows;...
Translation of the lesson:
But the fourth 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 Musā ibn Mutawakkil may God be pleased with him, narrated to us, he said: Abdullah ibn Ja’far al-Himyari narrated to us, he said: Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isā narrated to us, from Hasan ibn Mahbub, from Hisham ibn Sālim, from Yazid al-Kunāsi that said: Abu Ja’far (meaning Muhammad ibn Ali ibn al-Husayn) peace be upon him said:
O Abā Khālid! The earth does not remain without the proof of God over people even for one day, and since when God Almighty created Adam peace be upon him and made him dwell on the earth, it has not remained (without the proof of God over people even for one day).
Also, Muhammad ibn Ya’qub al-Kulayni [Died in 329 AH] has narrated in the book of “Al-Kafi”, has said:...
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.
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,...
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;...
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;...
