Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani

(28) Mahdi, due to his cleanness from all impurities and his desire to establish the pure and complete Islam, is waiting for his own reappearance and ruling sovereignty and if the grounds for it is prepared by readiness of one of the Muslim rulers by withdrawing from power and transferring it to him, he will certainly do it.

Letter of the day
Letters
A letter from His Honor to one of his helpers in which he advises him and warns him against the love of the world.

Translation of the letter:

Abdullah son of Habib informed us, he said: Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani wrote me a letter in which, after praising God and sending peace to the Prophet and his household, said:

“And thereafter...

O Abdullah son of Habib! Know that salvation is the fate of pious people, and piety is the title for God’s worship, and God’s worship is verily obedience to Him, and obedience to Him is to perform duties and avoid forbidden matters that He has stated in His Book and the Sunnah of His Prophet. So the servants of God are pious people who do righteous deeds and speak the truth; those whose hearts tremble with the fear of God, and settle down in their places in hopes for Him; those whose lips have dried due to mentioning God a lot, and whose stomachs have got thin due to continuous fasting;...

Sayings
A saying from his honor in description of the pious people of the era.

Translation of the saying:

One of our helpers informed us and said: one night I went to Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani while he was alone, and he was looking at the stars of the sky through the window. I asked: may I be your sacrifice, what you are thinking about?! Without taking his eyes off the stars of the sky, he said:

Oh you the fellow! In the midst of this era, in this period of time that the light of religion is hidden behind the dark clouds, God has some servants whom He is always in their hearts. They light up lamps in the eyes of people from their awareness and they remind people of the days of God and inform people of their predecessors’ exemplary fate. They are like the guiders in terrifying unknown desserts. They give good tidings to those who join the truth and they warn those who gravitate toward the false. Indeed, there are some servants for God around the corners of this vast world, those who have selected God’s remembrance from the attachments of the world and business trading does not stop them from praying on time...

Translation of the lesson:

Verse No. 9

God Almighty has said:

“Ask the people of remembrance if you do not know”.

[Considerations]

1 . Abu Ibrahim al-Samarqandi informed us, he said: I heard Mansoor say: God has not revealed in the Book what people are not able to do, and He has revealed in It: “Ask the people of remembrance if you do not know”, so no time is empty of a man of remembrance that people ask him about what they do not know and he gives them the right answer, and if you tell these ignorant people to know this man and ask him, they will say that you are but the people of Bid’ah! I said: May I be sacrificed for you, these people say that the scholars are all people of remembrance, so he said: Do all of them give right answers when asked? I said: No, he said: God does not command to ask a group that may not give right answers!...

Questions and answers

Question:

With our greetings, we want to know his honor’s opinion about this narration:

Amir al-Mu’minin Ali peace be upon him has said: The great prophet peace be upon him and his household said: “A man will rise from Transoxiana who is called “Harith ibn Harith”, the commander of his corps and the leader of his army is a man called “Mansoor” who will prepare sovereign ruling and monarchy for the household of Muhammad peace be upon him and his household or will provide power and dominance for them, as Quraysh prepared the grounds for sovereign ruling of God’s prophet peace be upon him and his household. It is obligatory to any muslim believer to aid him”. (Aqd al-Durar, p. 130)

[Also] we want to know his honor’s opinion about this narration:

Conjunction occurs between Mars and Saturn every two years. Imam Ali peace be upon him considers the move of army of Khorasani and Shoaib bin Saleh from Samarkand toward Iraq,...

Criticism and Investigation of the day
Criticisms and investigations

Criticism:

If in the opinion of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, Hadiths (with the exception of a few of them) are conjectural, then where can I find religious laws other than the treatises of the eminent sources of imitation (Maraji’ al-Taqlid)? Considering that he does not approve of Ijtihad either! Where do I take the laws of the prayer that the Quran has said about: «إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ كَانَتْ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ كِتَابًا مَوْقُوتًا» (An-Nisa/ 103) which means, “Undoubtedly the prayer is obligatory for believers at specific times”? Where do I take the laws of fasting that the Quran has said about: «يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُتِبَ عَلَيْكُمُ الصِّيَامُ» (Al-Baqarah/ 183) which means, “O you who believed, Fasting has been made obligatory upon you”? And many other laws for actions that have been made obligatory in the Quran. Should I leave them for now and start training myself and many other people so that the Caliph of God on the earth may appear, and then perform the prayer and fasting and so on?! That does not make sense at all!...

Who does not read the book Return to Islam or reads it, but does not benefit from it?
Reza Ghafurian

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...

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?...
