Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani
(26) Whether Mahdi exists at this time or not, sitting and waiting for him is not allowable, rather preparing grounds for his advent is obligatory for the community of justice-seekers of the world and it means preparing the necessary arrangements to provide his safety and fulfillment of his sovereignty after the advent. (Section: Questions and answers)
Criticism & investigation

I read this book. In fact, it was better and closer to the truth than the Shia thought, but Khorasani, like all Shias, is considered a polytheist and an infidel; because he has interpreted the verses of Quran according to his own opinion; because if you read before and after of many verses, which he has brought as reasons for his opinion, you understand that it has nothing to do with the context of the discussion. Of course, most of the verses and not all of them. For example, in the verse of Purification (Al-Tathir), God Almighty addresses exactly all the women of the Prophet, whereas Mansoor proves Wilayah (the guardianship) with it and makes it exclusive to Ali, Fatima and Hasanain (peace be upon them), although there is no doubt in their purity and they were righteous. Anyway, I’m waiting for answer to the criticism.

I suggest that this author first researches to see who he worships; because by what you and the Shias say, you really surprise God.

Dear Brother!

Please pay attention to the following points if you are afraid of God and the Day of Judgment and seek to know the truth and, like many other Muslims, do not seek to deceive yourself and others:

Firstly, “disbelief (Kufr)” and “polytheism (Shirk)” are two titles of religious titles that have specific and clear meanings in the book of God and the Sunnah of His Prophet, and the generalization of the two to another meaning is invented heresy and deviation, and every invented heresy and deviation lead to the fire. Therefore, take the reins of the tongue’s camel and issue the verdict of disbelief and polytheism with ponder and explanation; because if the camel of the tongue goes berserk, it throws its rider into the midst of hell, and if the verdict is issued without ponder and explanation, it throws its owner from the sky to the ground; as God has said: ﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِذَا ضَرَبْتُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَتَبَيَّنُوا وَلَا تَقُولُوا لِمَنْ أَلْقَى إِلَيْكُمُ السَّلَامَ لَسْتَ مُؤْمِنًا تَبْتَغُونَ عَرَضَ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا فَعِنْدَ اللَّهِ مَغَانِمُ كَثِيرَةٌ ۚ كَذَلِكَ كُنْتُمْ مِنْ قَبْلُ فَمَنَّ اللَّهُ عَلَيْكُمْ فَتَبَيَّنُوا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرًا[1]; “O you who believed! When you go forth in the cause of God, make due investigation and do not say to someone who announces his Islam to you that ‘You are no believer’, so that you seek the good things of worldly life; because with God there are good things in plenty; you yourself were in the same position before, until God conferred His special favor upon you; therefore, now take care to investigate; because God is well-aware of what you do”! It is clear that anyone who believes in the oneness of God in creation, legislation, and sovereignty, and believes in His last Prophet, Muhammad peace and blessings of God be upon him and his household, and does not deny the pillars of His religion, such as the book, the angels, the resurrection day, Qiblah, the prayer, zakat, fasting, Hajj and Jihad, he is a Muslim, although he does not think about other beliefs and laws like you and has a different perception, and this is a reality which is known from the book of God and the definite tradition of His Prophet peace and blessings of God be upon him and his household, and the righteous predecessors have had consensus on it, to the extent that it is close to be from the well-defined issues of Islam, and the one who denies it be accused of foolishness. With this description, it is clear that “all Shias” are not considered infidel or polytheist; because most of them believe in the oneness of God and His last Prophet and the pillars of His religion, and considering “all of them” infidels and polytheists by you, even if it is due to some of their deviations and mistakes, is sheer contention and coercion, and indicates your unfamiliarity with knowledge; to the extent that it seems you know nothing about it whatsoever and have not seen it with either of your two eyes! As it shows your unfamiliarity with piety; because with a strange carelessness, you issue general and public laws and do not fear that you are attributing lie to God; like the Kharijites who have emerged in the west and to the rule of ﴿يُفْسِدُ فِيهَا وَيَسْفِكُ الدِّمَاءَ[2] shed blood in it and spread corruption; because there is no knowledge and piety for them, and they take strength from people like you to plunder the life, wealth and honor of Muslims. Undoubtedly, they are in a far deviation, whereas they consider themselves to be guided; like those about whom God has said: ﴿الَّذِينَ ضَلَّ سَعْيُهُمْ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَهُمْ يَحْسَبُونَ أَنَّهُمْ يُحْسِنُونَ صُنْعًا[3]; “Those whose efforts in the world were on deviation, whereas they thought they were doing good”!

Secondly, the interpretation of Quran in a way that is not compatible with your passions is not considered “arbitrary interpretation”, rather an interpretation of it is arbitrary interpretation which is not compatible with the interpretation of the Prophet of God, whereas interpreting “Ahl al-Bayt" to Ali, Fatima Hasan and Hussain, and not interpreting it to the mothers of believers in the verse of Purification, is the interpretation of the Prophet of God, which was narrated from his Excellency in a mutawatir way by his companions such as Abdullah ibn Abbas, Abu Saeed Khadri, Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas, Anas ibn Malik, Vathilah ibn Asqa’, Ja’far ibn Abi Talib, Zayd ibn Arqam, Bara ibn Azib, Jabir ibn Abdullah, Abu Huraira, Abu Hamra, Abu Barza, Umm Salmah, Aisha, Safiyya and others[4], and a number of them like Zayd ibn Arqam, Ja’far ibn Abi Talib and Vathilah, even Umm Salmah and Safiyya who themselves are among the mothers of believers, have narrated its non-inclusion on the mothers of believers with correct and famous documents; rather all of them with agreement have clarified that the entry ﴿إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنْكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا[5], apart from the previous and next entries, has been revealed in the house of Umm Salmah, and the Prophet peace and blessings of God be upon him and his household, have not considered the previous and next entries to be related to it and have not interpreted them alongside it. With this description, Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani’s contentment to this entry and its interpretation apart from the previous and next entries, has been exactly in accordance with the deed of the Prophet peace and blessings of God be upon him and his household, and with this description, not only contrary to your illusion it is not considered “disbelief” and “polytheism”, but it is the very tradition of his Excellency, unless from your viewpoint, the very tradition of his Excellency is considered “disbelief” and “polytheism” and the Prophet of God peace and blessings of God be upon him and his household, was “infidel” and “polytheist” that In this case, there is no one on earth more infidel and polytheist than you! We seek refuge in God from arrogance when it is based on ignorance; because it is darkness on darkness, and whoever upon whom God does not bestow a light, there will be no light for him!

But it is also not possible to generalize this entry of the verse of Purification on the wives of the Prophet peace and blessings of God be upon him and household, according to the book of God, regardless of his Excellency’s mutawatir tradition; because the lack of cleanness of our honorable mothers from the absolute impurity (= الرّجس), whenever it means the absolute disobedience to God and His Prophet, is certain according to the book of God; as a complete surah called “At-Tahrim” has been revealed in expressing their disobedience and has clarified disclosure of the secret of his Excellency by them, rather the possibility of their pretense against him, and with this description, their lack of cleanness from the Absolute impurity is certain, whereas this is contrary to God’s definite will on the Purification of the Ahl al-Bayt; rather it is contrary to God’s tradition about the Prophets of the past; because He has excluded perpetrators of “unrighteous deed” from the Ahl al-Bayt of His Prophets and has considered them out of it and, for example, has said about the son of Noah peace be upon him: ﴿يَا نُوحُ إِنَّهُ لَيْسَ مِنْ أَهْلِكَ ۖ إِنَّهُ عَمَلٌ غَيْرُ صَالِحٍ ۖ[6]; “O Noah, undoubtedly he is not one of your family; for he has done an unrighteous deed” and it is clear that God’s tradition in the past people does not change; as He has said: ﴿سُنَّةَ اللَّهِ فِي الَّذِينَ خَلَوْا مِنْ قَبْلُ ۖ وَلَنْ تَجِدَ لِسُنَّةِ اللَّهِ تَبْدِيلًا[7]; “This was God’s tradition in those who passed away before, and you never find any change in God’s tradition”!

It is hereby understood that Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani has not interpreted the verse of Purification according to his own opinion, rather has interpreted it according to the book of God and the mutawatir tradition of His Prophet, and it is you who have interpreted it according to your own opinion and the opinion of those you imitate, and with this description, if arbitrary interpretation entails “disbelief” and “polytheism”, it is you who are an infidel and a polytheist!

Thirdly, arbitrary interpretation of the book of God, whenever it is based on ignorance and negligence, like your interpretation, is not considered “disbelief” and “polytheism”, rather it is a very big mistake; because “disbelief” and “polytheism” are among the ideological titles and are not proved by practical titles, unless on the basis of the Kharijites, over the falsehood of which there is no dispute. With this description, if you are from the Kharijites, it is necessary for you to repent of your disbelief and polytheism for arbitrary interpretation, and if you are not from the Kharijites, it is necessary for you to repent of regarding the tradition of the Prophet peace and blessings of God be upon him and household, as disbelief and polytheism; because in the both cases you need to repent. It is hereby understood that your verdict on disbelief and polytheism of Mansoor is a darkness over another darkness; because on the one hand, his Honor has not used arbitrary interpretation, and on the other hand, arbitrary interpretation does not entail disbelief and polytheism!

Fourthly, Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani has acted on the suggestion of his intellect for a long time before your suggestion, and has known through “research” Who he worships! He worships the God of Muhammad peace and blessings of God be upon him and his household, and does not know any partner for Him in creation, legislation, and sovereignty; in the sense that he regards Him unit in the creation, providing sustenance and management of beings, and does not submit to any law other than the law of His sovereignty, and regards His sovereignty as the sovereignty of someone who rules with His permission, although most people do not know. Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani does not worship god of Ibn Hamed, Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn Abd al-Wahhab and the like; the god who is above and not at the bottom and has two eyes and two ears and two hands and two feet and ten real fingers and moves from one place to another and is seen with the eyes of the head like the moonlight and is a perfect example of Al-Lāt and Hubal and Al-ʻUzzā, hidden in the veil of “without modality (بلا كيف)”! Rather he worships the God of Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, the Israelites, Jesus and Moses; the very Moses who said: ﴿رَبِّ أَرِنِي أَنْظُرْ إِلَيْكَ ۚ; “Oh Lord, show me, so that I saw You” and he was answered ﴿لَنْ تَرَانِي; “you will never ever see Me”, so he repented from his expectation: ﴿قَالَ سُبْحَانَكَ تُبْتُ إِلَيْكَ; “he said: Free of any imperfection is You, I repented toward You”; the God who killed seventy Israelites with lightning because they wanted to see Him with the eyes of head: ﴿فَقَالُوا أَرِنَا اللَّهَ جَهْرَةً[8]; “so they said ‘show us God manifestly”; because the eyes does not perceive Him, and He perceives the eyes, and He is the All-Knowing and the All-Subtle; as he has said: ﴿لَا تُدْرِكُهُ الْأَبْصَارُ وَهُوَ يُدْرِكُ الْأَبْصَارَ ۖ وَهُوَ اللَّطِيفُ الْخَبِيرُ[9]; the God that wherever you turn, He is there and His existence is not limited to the place, like the existence of objects; as He has said: ﴿فَأَيْنَمَا تُوَلُّوا فَثَمَّ وَجْهُ اللَّهِ ۚ[10]; “so wherever you turn, there is the presence of God”; the God who does not move from one place to another and does not rely on his creature, and like an animal, cannot be dismembered into limbs and joints, and cannot be described by human characteristics; as He has said: ﴿لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ ۖ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ[11]; “nothing is like Him, and He is the All-Hearing and the All-Seeing”; the God who does not fit into any description and does not come into any illusion and is purer and higher than anything that can be imagined; as he has said: ﴿مَا قَدَرُوا اللَّهَ حَقَّ قَدْرِهِ ۗ[12]; “they do not know God as He deserves” and has said: ﴿سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى عَمَّا يَصِفُونَ[13]; “He is purer and higher than anything they describe”; the God for whom all good names are, without the plurality of His names leads to the plurality of His essence and divides Him into numerous components; as He has said: ﴿اللَّهُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ۖ لَهُ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَى[14]; “God, there is no god other than Him, all good names are for Him”; as the two attributes of “All-Seeing” and “All-Hearing” do not turn Him into two beings and do not create two components for Him, rather He is All-Hearing at the same time of All-Seeing, and is All-Seeing at the same time of All-Hearing, and All-Seeing and All-Hearing are two credits of a unit attribute for Him which is called “knowledge”; because there is no way for plurality to His existence, and He is purify from any multiplicity in His essence; as he has said: ﴿قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ[15]; “say God is One” and has said: ﴿وَمَا أَمْرُنَا إِلَّا وَاحِدَةٌ[16]; “and Our work is nothing but One”; the God the legislation is only for Him, and do’s and don’ts are not issued except by Him; as He has said: ﴿أَمْ لَهُمْ شُرَكَاءُ شَرَعُوا لَهُمْ مِنَ الدِّينِ مَا لَمْ يَأْذَنْ بِهِ اللَّهُ ۚ[17]; “or for them there are partners who legislate something from the religion for which God has not given permission?!”; the God that the sovereignty is only for Him, and appointment and discharge of the ruler is not done except by Him; As he said: ﴿قُلِ اللَّهُمَّ مَالِكَ الْمُلْكِ تُؤْتِي الْمُلْكَ مَنْ تَشَاءُ وَتَنْزِعُ الْمُلْكَ مِمَّنْ تَشَاءُ[18]; “say: Oh God! You are the Owner of the sovereignty; You give the sovereignty to anyone You will and take it from anyone You will”, so there is no partner for Him in the sovereignty; as He has said: ﴿وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ[19]! This is the God of Muhammad peace and blessings of God be upon him and his household, and the God of Abraham and the family of Abraham, and this is the God of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, the flag-bearer of monotheism in the present age, with the monotheistic call of “Allegiance belongs to God (البیعة للّه)”.

Now, you need to do some research to know who you worship?! Do you worship the One God, in a way that, like Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, you are only obedient to His book and the mutawatir tradition of His Prophet in the light of common sense, and by departure toward the Caliph of God on earth, you are freed from the prison of sects, or like most Muslims, you worship your sect, in a way that you are obedient to your leaders and predecessors in the shadow of imitation, and consider anyone who is not subject to your sect and obedient to your leaders and predecessors as infidel and polytheist?! We suggest you to worship the One God and, like Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, only obey His book and the mutawatir tradition of His Prophet and His Caliph on earth, and do not follow various sects with thousands of illusions and wishes.

Know that Mansoor, by relying on Islamic certainties and commonalities, seeks to gather all Muslims of the world from all sects around Mahdi peace be upon him, and that you should cooperate with him in this good and blessed work, not that by beating the drum of Takfir[20] and blowing in the fire of division, make this work more difficult for his Honor. We invite you and other Muslims of the world to “return to pure and complete Islam”; because returning to pure and complete Islam is the ground for the advent of Mahdi, and the advent of the Mahdi is the ground for the earth to be filled with justice and fairness, after it is filled with oppression and injustice, and this is a bliss higher than which there is no bliss. So join Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani and help him in this great Islamic movement and allow him to turn your disagreement with each other into alliance in the light of the sovereignty of Mahdi peace be upon him.
