Critique & Response

According to our researches, “Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani” is a nickname!

Although your identity is not known to us, and we think you probably use a nickname yourself, and we do not know with what intention and based on what qualifications and with reliance on which news sources, your so-called research has been done, but we suggest you not to trust these discoveries of yours and always consider the possibility of error and mistake in them, so that you would not end up in Turkestan instead of Ka’bah; as in the Persian proverb: «ترسم نرسی به کعبه ای اعرابی/ کاین ره که تو می‌روی به ترکستان است» that means: “O Arab of the desert, I fear you will not reach Ka’bah/ because the road on which you travel leads to Turkestan”!

At the same time, it is possible that your guess is true; because firstly, using nickname among the free and reformist leaders of the world, who have many enemies, is natural and is not considered something unusual and unexpected; secondly, many people in the world have two names by one of them they are known among relatives and friends, and by the other among others, whereas their character, method and goals are constant and clear in anyway; thirdly, adopting a title for leaders and elders of religion, is a prevalent and common work, and is considered an Islamic tradition which is sometimes done by their fans and supporters and with regards to their good traits and characteristics, and these titles become even more well-known than their own names; as for example, the title “Mustafa” for the Prophet peace be upon him and his family were one of this kind, even the title “Ahmad”, by which he is introduced and announced in the Bible, were one of this kind, and the title “Siddiq” for Abu Bakr and the title “Faruq” for Umar and the title “Zunnurain” for Uthman and the title “Murtaza” for Ali were one of this kind, even Ali had another name which his mother named him with, and he was not known by that name during his time, and he has said with pointing to that name: «أنا الذّي سمّتني أمّي حیدره/ ضرغام آجام و لیث قسوره»; meaning: “I am the one my mother named me Haydar/ which means the tiger of the groves and the fierce lion”. Other leaders of the Ahl al-Bayt[1] also had different titles such as “Baqir”, “Sadiq”, “Kazim” and “Reza”, and today they are more well-known with those titles than their own names, even Imam Mahdi whom Mansoor invites to, also has another name and “Mahdi” is his title and reputation; regardless of the fact that God also changed the names of some of His friends after electing them; as it is mentioned in the Torah, He addressed Ibrahim peacebe upon him, whose name was “Abram”: “Your name will no longer be called Abram, but your name will be Ibrahim ; for I have made you the father of many nations”[2] and He addressed him: “As for your wife Sarai, you shall no loger call her Sarai, but her name will be Sara”[3] and He addressed Ya’qub peace be upon him: “Your name is Ya’qub, but you shall no longer be called Ya’qub, but Isra’il shall be your name. So He called him Isra’il”[4], rather He proclaimed it as His tradition and addressed His enemies: “God will kill you and will call His servants with other names”[5]. With regards to these evidences, your guess might be true; in the sense that “Mansoor” is also the title and reputation for the author of the book “Return to Islam” and the preparer of the grounds for advent of Mahdi, but it is obvious that this is not an important matter that has obsessed you and other narrow-minded people like you, and has become your loose excuse for spreading false propaganda against this great and oppressed scholar; because certainly, from the viewpoint of the intellectuals, only his Islamic and reformist ideas and teachings are important, and his name and title and reputation is not decisive; because these ideas and teachings are not based on his name and title and reputation, so that they may change by a change in them, rather are based on the Book of God and the mutawatir Sunnah of the Prophet peace be upon him and his family and the definitive rules of intellect, which are always constant and reliable to follow. Therefore, you can assume that the name of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani is Muhammad or Ali or Umar or Saeed or Hashim or Ja’far or Qasim or Qanbar or Muhammad Ali or Muhammad Ja’far or Abdullah or something else; because whatever of these names he may have, he is the author of the book “Return to Islam” and is the leader of a blessed movement that despite the hatred of hypocrites and sick-hearted people, has emerged for establishment of the pure and complete Islam in the world and realization of the sovereignty of Mahdi peace be upon him and despite all enmities and false propaganda, continues to move forward until it reaches its glorious and holy goal Insha’Allah.
