About Allamah Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani may God protect him
His Excellency Allamah Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, may God protect him, is a great righteous scholar in the Greater Khorasan, who has a privileged belief and jurisprudential school based on Islamic certainties far from conjectural approaches, and virtuous disciples from different countries, and a very rich website that presents his invaluable books, lessons, letters, and sayings, while attending to people’s questions and critiques related to various belief, ethical and jurisprudential issues, in an exquisite reasoning manner.
He is a great teacher and a well-wishing inviter, who has devoted his blessed life to reforming the beliefs and actions of Muslims, and combating bidʻahs and deviations in Islamic sects, and currently, he is leading a global movement whose slogan is “Return to Islam”, and whose symbol is the black flags of the Prophet, which aims to pave the way for the realization of the global government of God Almighty, through the establishment of the global government of Imam Mahdi, peace be upon him, as God’s Caliph on the earth; since this revolutionary leader, whom many people hope to be Mansoor al-Khorasani, the owner of the promised black flags in Islamic narrations, firmly believes that the advent of Imam Mahdi, peace be upon him, is possible and inevitable if he has a sufficient number of righteous helpers, whether he is alive now, as some believe, or will be born at a later date, as some others believe, and therefore, he makes every effort to prepare his advent by gathering and training a sufficient number of righteous helpers for him, so that in this way it will be possible to achieve global justice and save man from loss, Insha’Allah.
In fact, whoever looks into the books, lessons, letters, sayings, and other beneficial published matters of this wise scholar on his website with an eye of tolerance and fairness, will find him as a perfect example of moderation, freedom, rationality and loyalty to the original Islamic principles and goals. Furthermore, if one looks closely, one would find him the most resembling to the righteous predecessors and the most knowledgeable of Muslim scholars in the current age, and would also attest to the fact that His Honor does not belong to any government or nation or sect in the world; because he does not consider any government except for the government of God and His Caliph on the earth to be legitimate, and does not recognize any borders among Muslims, and does not consider any of the Islamic sects, whether Sunni or Shia sects, to be complete and free from fault; rather he believes that all these sects have been more or less tainted by some belief and jurisprudential bidʻahs and deviations, and therefore he only adheres and commits himself to the pure and perfect Islam, and that, in his opinion, is a set of beliefs, ethics and laws that are known only through adherence to the “Quran” and the “mutawatir Sunnah of the Prophet” in the light of the “sound intellect”, that is, the intellect free from ignorance, imitation, passions, worldliness, fanaticism, arrogance and superstitionism, all of which have been explained in his invaluable book Return to Islam.
This great human, whom one by considering his high scholarly and spiritual status and his global invitation toward Imam Mahdi, peace be upon him, may expect him to make a claim about himself, does not claim to be a Prophet or an Imam, or have a special position bestowed by God, but rather explicitly says that he is one of the servants of God who rises to perform his intellectual and religious duty in inviting to all that is good and enjoining right and forbidding evil, and he expects all Muslims of the world to cooperate with him in achieving his sacred goal that is the goal of Islam, by virtue of the law ﴿وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَى﴾; “And cooperate in goodness and piety”; as we said in response to a question about this:
It is possible that Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani is the promised Mansoor al-Khorasani, the owner of the black flags promised in Islamic narrations; since there is no rational or religious reason to prevent it, ﴿وَاللَّهُ يَخْتَصُّ بِرَحْمَتِهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ ۚ وَاللَّهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ الْعَظِيمِ﴾; “and God singles out for His mercy whomever He wills, and God is the Owner of extreme grace,” but he does not claim that, nor does he argue with anyone about it, and he forbids his companions from arguing about it. What is certain, a tangible reality, and sufficient to know is that Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani is one of the servants of God and the nation of His Prophet, Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him and his family, who follows the Quran and the mutawatir Sunnah of the Prophet in the light of sound intellect. He does not make any claims of prophethood or divine leadership, nor is he affiliated with any government, sect, or group in the world. He only invites toward God’s Caliph, the Mahdi, and prepares the ground for his advent through cultural activities such as writing books and talking to Muslims. In exchange for this righteous and hard work, he does not ask for any reward from people, but only seeks reward with God. He does not consume people’s belongings wrongfully, nor does he endanger anyone’s life unjustly, nor does he wrong a small ant or a bigger creature, and therefore, if someone responds to his invitation and helps him, he does so because of the truthfulness of his words and the rightfulness of his actions based on rational and religious reasons and with the intention of preparing the ground for the Mahdi’s advent, and if someone does not do so or instead becomes hostile to him, he does not harm him at all, but only deprives himself of good or makes himself fall into evil, ﴿وَاللَّهُ بِمَا يَعْمَلُونَ مُحِيطٌ﴾; “and God is Fully Aware of what they do.”... Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani is just a pious, Muslim scholar, who prevents Muslims from following unjust and tyrannical rulers, invites them to follow the Mahdi, forbids them to follow conjectures and illusions, orders them to follow knowledge and certainty, warns them against ignorance, imitation, passions, worldliness, fanaticism, arrogance, and superstitionism, and urges them to establish the pure and perfect Islam in the light of the Quran, the Sunnah, and the sound intellect.
