Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani
(78) Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, contrary to others who know genesis and advent of Mahdi contingent on will and primary action of God and assume it to be a function of His wisdom and exigency, knows it contingent on will and primary action of people and assumes it is a function of their determination and preparedness and believes with an extraordinary certainty and perspicuity that their access to Mahdi is possible and with this description, they should only think about protecting, supporting and obeying him and should not entertain themselves with protecting, supporting and obeying anyone other than him, regardless in any garb or cover it wants to be. (Article 1)
Criticism & investigation

If his honor is sincere in his intention, please find out the question which I am going to ask Wali al-’Asr (Imam Mahdi) by any means and answer it.

Dear brother!

It seems that you still have not studied the honorable book “Return To Islam” written by his excellency Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani and do not know anything about his thoughts, aims and sayings and hence, you have spoken like someone who has suddenly fallen from the sky in the middle of a field and does not know what is what. So it is necessary to pay attention to the following points:

Firstly, the sincerity of someone in his intention does not entail his awareness of thoughts of others; Since many people are certainly sincere in their intentions, but they are not aware of thoughts of others and with this description, determining such standard to know about the sincerity of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani’s intention, is an unwise and meaningless deed.

Secondly, the awareness of someone from thoughts of others, does not entail his sincerity in his intention; Since many priests and sorcerers by using evil tricks, become aware of thoughts of others and do divining and forecasting, while certainly they have not sincere intentions and only have intent on fraud and deception.

Thirdly, if you are looking to know about Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani’s knowledge of the unseen, Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani does not claim to have knowledge of the unseen; Since knowledge of the unseen, only belongs to God; As He has said: ﴿قُلْ لَا يَعْلَمُ مَنْ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ الْغَيْبَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ۚ[1]; “Say to them: None in the heavens and earth knows the unseen except God” and He only declares it for his prophets when it is needed; As He has said: ﴿عَالِمُ الْغَيْبِ فَلَا يُظْهِرُ عَلَى غَيْبِهِ أَحَدًا ۝ إِلَّا مَنِ ارْتَضَى مِنْ رَسُولٍ[2]; “[He is] Knower of the unseen, and He does not disclose His [knowledge of the] unseen to anyone, Except whom He has approved of messengers” and has said: ﴿وَمَا كَانَ اللَّهُ لِيُطْلِعَكُمْ عَلَى الْغَيْبِ وَلَكِنَّ اللَّهَ يَجْتَبِي مِنْ رُسُلِهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ ۖ[3]; “God would not reveal to you the unseen. But [instead], he chooses of His messengers whom He wills”! With the above description, His prophets also are not considered to have knowledge of the unseen essentially and the principle about them, is lack of knowledge of the unseen; As He has said: ﴿قُلْ لَا أَقُولُ لَكُمْ عِنْدِي خَزَائِنُ اللَّهِ وَلَا أَعْلَمُ الْغَيْبَ[4]; “Say to them: I do not tell you that I have the depositories [containing the provision] of God or that I know the unseen” and has said: ﴿قُلْ لَا أَمْلِكُ لِنَفْسِي نَفْعًا وَلَا ضَرًّا إِلَّا مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ ۚ وَلَوْ كُنْتُ أَعْلَمُ الْغَيْبَ لَاسْتَكْثَرْتُ مِنَ الْخَيْرِ وَمَا مَسَّنِيَ السُّوءُ ۚ إِنْ أَنَا إِلَّا نَذِيرٌ وَبَشِيرٌ لِقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ[5]; “Say to them: I hold not for myself [the power of] benefit or harm, except what God has willed. And if I knew the unseen, I could have acquired much wealth, and no harm would have touched me. I am not except a warner and a bringer of good tidings to a people who believe.”! Hence, it has been said in the book of God that Yaqub peace be upon him was unaware of Yusuf peace be upon him for years and did not know where he was[6], and Lut peace be upon him did not recognize the angels of God until dawn of the next day and was worried for them because of his people[7], and Ayyub peace be upon him was unaware that his wife did not commit vice, to the extent that he swore to flog her with one hundred whips[8], and Soleyman peace be upon him was not aware that where is the hoopoe and what is going on in the kingdom of Saba, until the hoopoe came and informed him and yet, of course he was not sure of it[9], and the greatest of the prophets, Muhammad peace be upon him and his household, did not know some of hypocrites; As God has said: ﴿وَمِمَّنْ حَوْلَكُمْ مِنَ الْأَعْرَابِ مُنَافِقُونَ ۖ وَمِنْ أَهْلِ الْمَدِينَةِ ۖ مَرَدُوا عَلَى النِّفَاقِ لَا تَعْلَمُهُمْ ۖ نَحْنُ نَعْلَمُهُمْ ۚ[10]; “And among those around you of the bedouins are hypocrites, and [also] from the people of Madinah. They have become accustomed to hypocrisy. You do not know them, [but] We know them” and with the given description, it is clear that all their honors were sincere in their intentions, rather morning and night something had revealed to them! This happens while Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani is not a prophet; As he is not priest or sorcerer, rather is a man like you and a scholar of scholars of the religion who invites toward the pure and complete Islam by intellectual and religious proofs and arguments, and prepares the grounds for the advent of God’s caliph on earth, and has come to inform of your wrong thoughts and has not come to inform of your hidden thoughts; Since you yourself are aware of your hidden thoughts, but are unaware of your wrong thoughts and it is appropriate for you to be informed about them!

It is hereby understood that your mentality about Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, accordingly as your mentality about Mahdi peace be upon him, is a vulgar and superstitious mentality which is originated from vulgar and superstitious advertises of the claimants of knowledge and those who are unfamiliar with it, in your society; Because these ignorant scholars, who are lurking in any mosque and clique, with the help of blabber panegyrists, who are taking stands in any alley and district, at least from the Safavid era so far, have replaced rationality with illusions and realities with superstitions and have presented a fanciful and mythological picture from the leaders of the religion, which has been spread like a poisoned virus among everyone and has fully sickened your minds; To the extent that you have made emotions the basis of your religiousness and have plunged yourselves in the waves of poems and slogans; Unaware of that Islam is the religion of rationality and realism and does not follow your desires at all; As God has said: ﴿لَيْسَ بِأَمَانِيِّكُمْ وَلَا أَمَانِيِّ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ ۗ[11]; “The final result will neither be in accordance with your desires nor in accordance with the desires of the People of the Book”! Therefore, you have subordinated the truth to your desires and to recognize it, you set whatever standard you want; Unaware of that the truth does not obey your desires; Since if it does, the skies and earth will be ruined; As God has said: ﴿وَلَوِ اتَّبَعَ الْحَقُّ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ لَفَسَدَتِ السَّمَاوَاتُ وَالْأَرْضُ وَمَنْ فِيهِنَّ ۚ[12]; “But if the Truth had followed their inclinations, the heavens and the earth and whoever is in them would have been ruined”.

Yes, undoubtedly what reveals the sincerity of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani in his intention, is not conformity of his thoughts, teachings and aims with your desires, rather is conformity of them with the book of God and mutawatir Sunnah of His prophet peace be upon him and his household and clear decree of intellect which is obviously visible in the honorable book “Return To Islam”. Regardless of the fact that the sincerity of his honor in his intention, actually does not concern you and what concerns you is the conformity of his invitation with Islam; Since if his invitation is conformity with Islam, responding to it is obligatory to you, although he himself is not sincere in his intention; Since by responding to his invitation, you actually respond to Islam, not to him and he himself is responsible for his guilt in case of lack of sincerity in intention. As God has said about His prophet: ﴿قُلْ أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ ۖ فَإِنْ تَوَلَّوْا فَإِنَّمَا عَلَيْهِ مَا حُمِّلَ وَعَلَيْكُمْ مَا حُمِّلْتُمْ ۖ وَإِنْ تُطِيعُوهُ تَهْتَدُوا ۚ وَمَا عَلَى الرَّسُولِ إِلَّا الْبَلَاغُ الْمُبِينُ[13]; “Say to them: Obey God and obey the Messenger; but if you turn away - then upon him is only that [duty] with which he has been charged, and upon you is that with which you have been charged. And if you obey him, you will be [rightly] guided. And there is not upon the Messenger except the [responsibility for] clear notification.”!

In the end, we invite you to study the topic “Superstition among Shiite muslims” of the honorable book “Return To Islam”[14] which explains about the factors, dimensions and effects of such wrong approaches.

May God bestow all muslims, especially Shiite the success of religious knowledge based on rationality and realism and away from baseless passions and illusions, so that they may not make the advent harder for Mahdi peace be upon him by their vulgar and superstitious mentalities and by placing wrong conditions for the truth, and do not prolong their misery and calamity. Indeed, it is at the end of the rope but the conditions for the advent of Mahdi peace be upon him are not provided; Since most muslims want the truth as their subordinate and do not want themselves as subordinates of the truth and are unfamiliar with cognition and distinction!

Dear brother, give us the right that in this desperate world and also with these inappropriate pedagogies of propagators, our questions are also irregular.

I am a graduate collegian of theology and a teacher of religious lesson, with this description of myself and my previous question, you can guess the scientific status and religious knowledge of this society.

1 . After i studied his honor’s book and convinced, what help can this humble servant do for preparing the grounds of the rise?

2 . How can i determine that the future of his honor’s rise will not be the same as some other islamic revolutions and the sincere intentions and efforts of the people, will not turn into establishment of a fallible man’s sovereignty?

3 . How can i accompany someone whom i have not seen yet?

4 . Will you assist me if I publish the works of his honor Khorasani?

I am so thankful for answering questions quickly.

Good brother!

You are one of the few elites who have preserved their right-demand and liberal spirits in the midst of doubts and seditions of the end time, and have not fully surrendered their mind to ignorance and imitation and passions and worldliness and prejudice and arrogance and superstitionism, and with this description, should one of their legs slips, the other will remain stable, so that they will not fall. Undoubtedly people like you, are the assets of this religion and the patrons of the advent of Mahdi, and if there are not people like you who accept the truth after it is revealed and leave the wrong after it is disgraced, the punishment of God will descend.

But about your questions, please pay attention to the following explanations:

Firstly, God has completely specified the duty of humans towards the truth and has said: ﴿بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ ۝ وَالْعَصْرِ ۝ إِنَّ الْإِنْسَانَ لَفِي خُسْرٍ ۝ إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ[1]; “In the name of God, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. By time. Indeed, mankind is in loss. Except those who have faith and do righteous deeds, and enjoin one another to the truth, and enjoin one another to patience”. This means that every human has four duties towards the truth: One is that theoretically, should know and accept it and this is “faith” which is a personal duty; Two is that practically, should be loyal to and objectify it and this is “righteous deeds” which is a personal duty; Third is that theoretically, should invite others to the “faith” in the meaning of knowing the truth and accepting it, and this is “to enjoin one another to the truth” which is a social duty; Four is that practically, should invite others to “do righteous deeds” in the meaning of being loyal to the truth and objectifying it and this is “to enjoin one another to patience”, which is a social duty. In this way, the personal and social duties of you and other muslims in this world based on the book of God are to first recognize the right invitation of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani toward “the pure and complete Islam” and “realizing the sovereign ruling of God on earth” by studying in the academy of this reformer and fighter scholar and accept it by insight and sincerity and then, to perform it in your personal life and inform it to others, so it gradually will become the concern and aim of muslims in this world and will affect the worldview of people of Taughut and progressively will provide the grounds for the advant of God’s caliph on earth and the superiority of word of God over word of others.

Secondly, comparing the movement of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani with the movements of predecessors is improper and is comparison of incommensurables; Since this movement, unlike the movements of predecessors, in its most fundamental basis, is based on God’s unity in sovereign ruling, in the meaning of specifying the sovereign ruling to Him, rather it has no essence except to invite toward the sovereign ruling of God’s caliph on earth and with the given description, its congregation with non-God sovereignty, is like congregation of two contradictory things which is impossible; As, resulting it in sovereignty of non-God’s caliph on earth, is resulting in something which is not its requirement and with this description, this movement will either result in realizing the sovereign ruling of God’s caliph or will be annihilated completely and either way, resulting it in sovereignty of non-God’s caliph on earth is not possible. This means that Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani and his helpers, will either achieve their holy aim by realizing the sovereign ruling of Mahdi, or like Hussain ibn Ali and his helpers in Karbala, will be martyred to the last one.

Thirdly, if you do not see Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, you also do not see Mahdi peace be upon him, but this does not prevent you from being in conformity with his excellency; As you do not see the prophet of God peace be upon him and his household, yet you live on his religion and you will die on his religion, if God wills; Since his book is available to you and his teachings has been reached to you and this alone suffices you to follow him. Be aware that Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani’s concealment is the result of inconvenient situations which exist at the moment and is changeable by changing these situations, if God wills.

Fourthly, we need your help more than you need ours and with this description, we invite you to introduce the honorable book “Return to Islam” written by this reformer and fighter scholar to your family, friends, acquaintances, neighbors, coworkers and other muslims of this world, specially people from your language and by using your knowledge and its explanations at the informatory website of his honor’s center, explain to them and ask them for God sake and for expediting the advent of our master Mahdi peace be upon him and by the law of ﴿تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَى ۖ[2]; “And cooperate in righteousness and piety”, join the movement “Return to the pure and complete Islam” and assist Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani in preparing the grounds for God’s sovereign ruling on earth; Because each of them alone will be a brick which will be placed on the other brick, and by the architecture of this divine scholar, the foundation of the Faraj will be made: ﴿وَمَا النَّصْرُ إِلَّا مِنْ عِنْدِ اللَّهِ الْعَزِيزِ الْحَكِيمِ[3]; “And victory is not except from God, the Exalted in Might, the Wise”.
