(23) Believing in the advent of the Mahdi is not a suspicious or imaginary belief, but is one of the most original and certain common Islamic beliefs; as more than forty companions of the Prophet have told the news about him to dozens of their successors and through them, to hundreds of Muslims and many of the Ahl ah-Hadith have specified its accuracy and frequency and many of them have written independent books about it and its content is in accordance with God’s promise in the Quran. (Section: Questions and answers)

Translation of the letter:

They did not know the God the way He deserves [to be known], when they accepted some rulers other than Him and when they submitted to commandments other than His commandments and they said something about Him of which they had no knowledge, when they said: God has commanded us to it, whereas God does not command to polytheism, but they have imputed lie to Him ...

The bandits on the way of God, prevented people from the Book of God and His Caliph and made them busy with themselves, like they prevent a baby from the mother’s breast and distract it with the pacifier! So the result of this banditry was that people became addicted to imitating them and not long after that, they fell from the hole of imitation in the practices into the well of imitation in the principles, and let them dominate over their hereafter and this world and submitted to their guardianship as if it is the guardianship of God and took them as their lords apart from God; like the Jews who did the same to their kohens and took them as lords in the absence of their prophets and whenever a prophet emerged for them, they denied him by a single gesture from them or killed them by their fatwa; because no prophet emerged for them, unless he spoke against their kohens and uncovered their hypocrisies and treacheries…

Certainly you have left the Book of God behind and have wasted His Caliph and have slaughtered the intellect before your desires and this is not much of a surprise; because it is more than a thousand years that you have been distanced from the time of the prophets and the era of absence has been prolonged unto you and now you are the posterity of the deceased who neither saw any prophet nor any prophet’s successor, so you inherited the religion from them; as God has said: ﴿فَخَلَفَ مِنْ بَعْدِهِمْ خَلْفٌ وَرِثُوا الْكِتَابَ يَأْخُذُونَ عَرَضَ هَذَا الْأَدْنَى وَيَقُولُونَ سَيُغْفَرُ لَنَا وَإِنْ يَأْتِهِمْ عَرَضٌ مِثْلُهُ يَأْخُذُوهُ ۚ أَلَمْ يُؤْخَذْ عَلَيْهِمْ مِيثَاقُ الْكِتَابِ أَنْ لَا يَقُولُوا عَلَى اللَّهِ إِلَّا الْحَقَّ وَدَرَسُوا مَا فِيهِ ۗ وَالدَّارُ الْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لِلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَ ۗ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ﴾[1]; “Then the deceased were succeeded by the posterity, which inherited the religion from them, so they grab the transitory gains of this lower world, and say we will be forgiven and if another transitory gain like that were also offered to them they would take it! Were they not under the covenant of the religion and had they not already studied its lessons that they shall not impute to God anything except for the truth and the abode of the Hereafter is better for those who are pious?! Do you not exercise your intellect”?! So you followed in the footsteps of your fathers and you were the descendants after them; as God has said: ﴿أَوْ تَقُولُوا إِنَّمَا أَشْرَكَ آبَاؤُنَا مِنْ قَبْلُ وَكُنَّا ذُرِّيَّةً مِنْ بَعْدِهِمْ ۖ أَفَتُهْلِكُنَا بِمَا فَعَلَ الْمُبْطِلُونَ﴾[2]; “Or say: Indeed, our fathers had associated others and we also were the descendants after them, will you destroy us because of that which those who follow the falsehood did”?!...

Beware, do not be deceived by their appearances and do not be fooled by their indoctrination; because they are like satans who have come to you from the right; as God has said: ﴿قَالُوا إِنَّكُمْ كُنْتُمْ تَأْتُونَنَا عَنِ الْيَمِينِ﴾[3]; “They say you used to come to us from the right”! Whereas both the left and the right are deviated ways, and both lead to the same destiny and that is indeed fire which is a terrible destiny for the deviated people. Know the religion of God by His Book and His Caliph, not by viewpoints of men; because those who have known the religion of God by viewpoints of men, have not known the religion of God…

Then with the backing of this position that God has not set for them, they harass any Muslim who does not submit to their verdicts and does not follow their desires and decree it Halal to violate his wealth and life and honor that God has honored, and some of their subordinates who work under their orders, spread destruction on earth and some of their followers who most of them are fools, hate their opponents, as if they are opponents of God, and there are some miserable people among them who kill and get killed for them!...

They had not yet become adults when they screamed, and they had not yet grown wings when they flew, and they had not yet learned swimming when they jumped into the sea! So, they have put on a dress which is too big for them and they have put on a pair of shoes which falls behind from their feet! They have bitten off more than they could chew and they have eaten food more than their abdomens, so it is near that their ribs split apart! They dress like the monks but think like the unbelievers and speak like the righteous, but act like the oppressors! They are like beautiful snakes with pretty skin patterns and beauty spots who have an inner full of venom! They come out for oppression in the mornings and return home to plan for deceits in the evenings! Their hearts are full of arrogance and greed and have no concern other than maintaining their power! They admonish the oppressors while they are among them and call the claimants liars while they have the same claim! They have sacrificed religion for politics and have traded the hereafter for the world! They have committed big sins and have set up ugly innovations in religion! They have appointed unworthy people to positions and have brought the ignoble people to high ranks! They have isolated the righteous people and have defamed well-wishers!...

I swear to God, if you observe their logic, you will find it too loose and if you investigate their proof you will find it too incomplete. Their thoughts are distracted, and their speeches are contradictory; because God has not sent down any reason for what they say, and they impute lie to Him….

Except for some of them who have good intent and when they hear the invitation of God, accept it and return to Him and exit from the line of oppressors; because they are among the pious and the ultimate end will belong to the pious, when their sins become forgiven and their faults become forgotten and they will enter the heavens beneath which rivers are flowing, so that it will be a reward for their patience and the reward of God is great...

Why nobody of those who have been given power on earth, did invite to the Caliph of God on it and donate from their wealth and weapon to him so that he will be given power on it like them? Did they fear that their power on it may decrease? Inevitably, they will lose all their power on it when the Caliph of God comes to power on it to such an extent that the luckiest of them will be the one who pastures the sheep of his father’s village! Is there not any ruler on earth that sells his sovereignty in it, in exchange for a sovereignty in heaven? Indeed, God can take their sovereignty by force, but He wants them to give it to Him with their own wills…

The fact is that out of fear for deviation to the left you have gone astray to the right and out of fear for underdoing you have got involved in overdoing and out of fear for fire you have jumped into it! Whereas God has made you a moderate nation and has warned you from going left or right and has said: ﴿وَكَذَلِكَ جَعَلْنَاكُمْ أُمَّةً وَسَطًا﴾[4]; “And so We have made you a moderate nation”. So, do not take any guardian other than His guardian because otherwise you will be in misery and do not traverse any path other than His path because otherwise you will go astray! Indeed, I am a well-wishing brother for you. Do you want to be among those who will say in the day of judgment: ﴿رَبَّنَا إِنَّا أَطَعْنَا سَادَتَنَا وَكُبَرَاءَنَا فَأَضَلُّونَا السَّبِيلَا﴾[5]; “Oh, our Lord, We obeyed our rulers and our eminent elders, but they misled us from the path”?! …

Beware! Do not let Satan deceive you into the illusion of urgency and you say these are better than others for us and there is no way for us to avoid them and we are preventing the worse by utilizing the bad; because if you have piety and do not get satisfied with the bad and avoid following the Taughut, God will open a gate for you from where you would not think of, and will grant you blessings twice from His mercy and will set a light for you so that you take steps under its brightness and He will forgive your prior failures; because He is indeed very forgiving and merciful; as He has said: ﴿وَالَّذِينَ اجْتَنَبُوا الطَّاغُوتَ أَنْ يَعْبُدُوهَا وَأَنَابُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ لَهُمُ الْبُشْرَى ۚ﴾[6]; “For those who avoid worshiping the Taughut and turn in repentance to God, there is good tidings”. Now I give you good tidings: God has never let His servants wander between bad and worse and He is wiser and more merciful to have done such a thing, rather He has set good for them beyond bad and worse, but most of them are unaware of that. Now I have come out to inform you about it and uncover it after a time period that has been prolonged for you, so you may gain insight. Now I have brought you a message in which there is relief for you and maybe God has begun a work which is hidden to you; because He is able to do anything. So if my foot remains firm on earth and those who do not wish for God to be worshiped do not remove me from it, I will speak to you and will reveal the truth, to an extent that children memorize it and housewives give example by it and if my foot is captured and I get removed from earth, I have no fear; because I am not better than my fathers and my life is not more sacred than their lives and how sweet it is for me to join them, while I have followed the book of God and tradition of His Prophet and I have not brought into Islam any innovation and I have not claimed what does not belong to me and I have not sought superiority on earth and I have not spread corruption and I have done my duty regarding my nation; and so is better to me death from living in a world which is filled with oppression and is more unclean than the carrion of a dog! Undoubtedly, my return is to God and He will be the judge between me and those of you who oppress and humiliate me. He has promised those of you who know the truth and stand for it, that He will give power to them on earth and will spread their good tradition for them and will transform their fear to security after a long time, so that they may worship Him in purity and may not make any associate with Him. Then those who imputed lie to God will be hopeless from His mercy and will know that they cannot make Him disable on earth and God will fulfill His promise and He possesses a light that spreads it, even though unbelievers dislike it. When various speeches are being heard and everybody makes a call from every corner, follow a speech which is more compatible with the speech of God and His Prophet and answer to a call which is more consonant with Intellect; as God has said: ﴿فَبَشِّرْ عِبادِ ۝ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَمِعُونَ الْقَوْلَ فَيَتَّبِعُونَ أَحْسَنَهُ ۚ أُولَئِكَ الَّذِينَ هَدَاهُمُ اللَّهُ ۖ وَأُولَئِكَ هُمْ أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ﴾[7]; “Therefore bring my servants the good news; Those who listen to speeches and follow the best of it; They are the very people God has guided and they are the very wise people!” and this is how we wrote to you, so that you may remember and return to the truth and worship your God with a pure religion for Him and avoid worshiping the Taughut, even though it be in the clothes of Islam and rise for justice so that sedition be eliminated on earth and the religion, all of it, be for God and those who dispute over His signs may know that there is no haven for them and peace be upon one who follows guidance.
