We want to know the opinion of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani about public disrespect to some companions of the Prophet and about some satellite channels like … and their managers like … [Those who openly insult the companions of the Prophet]. Thank you.

Answer to question: 1 Date: 20/02/2015

The opinion of his excellency Allamah Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani about this matter, has been clearly explained in the honorable book “Return to Islam”, in the subject “Necessity of respecting the prophet’s companions” (page 278) by relying on certain and common resources between Muslims. By this opinion and base of some of his honor’s lessons, insulting none of the companions of the Prophet is permissible and anyone who insults them is guilty and if he insists on insulting them is a sinner, and if in addition to insistence, he does it openly in a way that requires Muslims to quarrel with each other and to make some of them hate some others, it is not unlikely that he is a corruptor on earth and the punishment of corruptors on earth is clear, whenever they are referred to Imam.

May God bestow on all Muslims the success of returning to the complete and pure Islam and following its rules and morality and avoiding causing division and making sedition, although most of them are not willing to gain any benefit.
