Please explain more about name, age, nationality and apparent characteristics of his honor Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani the ground preparer for the advent of Imam Mahdi peace be upon him. Thank you.
Having a character-oriented mindset has turned into a dangerous and prevalent sickness among Muslims; because they do not accept the word of truth from whom they do not know and accept the word of falsehood from whom they know, while the word of truth is true even though its speaker be unknown and the word of falsehood is false even though its speaker be known. The word of truth does not become false by its speaker’s anonymity and the word of falsehood does not become true by its speaker’s fame, rather every speaker will be known by what he says; if his word was true, he is in line with the truth and if his word was false, he is in line with the falsehood. Too many famous speakers who say the false and too many unknown speakers who say the truth! Does truthfulness of someone depend on his name or follow his nationality or is it influenced by his appearance?! While names are credential titles and nationalities are self-fabricated illusions and apparent characteristics are not concomitant with inner characteristics. Have you realized that his honor Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani is “the ground preparer for the advent of Mahdi peace be upon him” based on his name, age, nationality and apparent characteristics or based on his thoughts, teachings and goals?! If you have realized this fact based on his thoughts, teachings and goals, so why are you curious about his name, age, nationality and apparent characteristics?! Do you not know that your curiosity sooner or later will turn into a sedition for you and an excuse for doubt makers?! Those very devils of humankind and jinn who try to distract you away from the main content to the margin and keep you busy with uncertainties (Mutashabihat) instead of certainties (Muhkamat) so that with this trick, they obsess your mind and make your heart sick, so that you eventually cast off the shield of rationality during attacks of pessimism and mistrust. They know that in confrontation with proofs and logics of his honor Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, they are like a weak and helpless child; because proofs and logics of this rare man of the era break the head and bend the neck! Therefore they have no way other than using false Propaganda and extraneous matters in confrontation with him and what really gives them the opportunity for this wickedness and mischief is the sensitivity and attempt of people like you in investigation about name, nationality and apparent characteristics of this honorable man; because if people like you had not cared much about such extraneous and unimportant matters, they would have not emphasized on them to this extent, but the fact is that people like you care much about such extraneous and unimportant matters and this is an excuse for the enemies of God and the enemies of His caliph on earth. These enemies, like other devils of humankind and jinn, abuse your weakness and your weakness is caring about appearances of people instead of thoughts, teachings and their goals; as for instance, some people expect his honor Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani to have an extraordinary appearance and be in a halo of light and therefore, while they find him a human like themselves forget his thoughts, teachings and goals and turn away from him; unaware of the fact that the prophets also were humans like themselves, except that God conferred favor upon them by the success of knowledge and righteous deed; As He has said: ﴿قَالَتْ لَهُمْ رُسُلُهُمْ إِنْ نَحْنُ إِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِثْلُكُمْ وَلَٰكِنَّ اللَّهَ يَمُنُّ عَلَىٰ مَنْ يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ ۖ وَمَا كَانَ لَنَا أَنْ نَأْتِيَكُمْ بِسُلْطَانٍ إِلَّا بِإِذْنِ اللَّهِ ۚ وَعَلَى اللَّهِ فَلْيَتَوَكَّلِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ﴾; “Their prophets said to them: We are only men like you, but Allah confers favor upon whom He wills of His servants. It has never been for us to bring you evidence except by permission of Allah. And upon Allah let the believers rely”! This is why the devilish tempters try to introduce his honor Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani similar to others in terms of name, nationality and apparent characteristics, like a new discovery and a solution for a mystery, so that they prove unrightfulness of his honor as they wish; unaware of the fact that the rightfulness of this honorable man is not due to his name, age, nationality and apparent characteristics, rather is due to his pure and perfect thoughts, teachings and goals and these are what distinguish his honor from others; otherwise this honorable man does not claim to be an angel and does not claim to be different from others, rather he is just an inviter toward the family of Muhammad and a ground preparer for the advent of Mahdi and if anyone follows his honor, he must do so with consideration to this fact, not with consideration to his honor’s name, age, nationality and apparent characteristics, even though they conform with Islamic prophecies.
That is why this righteous servant of God wrote to the Persian Muslims in the beginning of his letter:
“And as to what follows... Oh you wise people! Oh Muslim brothers and sisters! I am talking to you about you. Will you hearken to my speech and believe it or will you close your ears and continue your way?! I swear to God, if the enemy of a human writes him a letter, he will read it carefully to know what his enemy has written for him, while I am your compassionate friend and well-wishing brother and it is more deserving to know what I have written for you. If you do not recognize me, I do recognize you and if you do not like me, I do like you. Hearken to my speech and do not ask who I am; Since the identity of human will be revealed by his speech and the wise will look at the speech and not to the speaker! There are lots of words of truth that a child says and there are lots of words of falsehood that elders say! A word of truth is true, even though a child says it and a word of falsehood is false, even though elders say it! Hence if you recognize the word, not recognizing its speaker will not harm you, just as if you do not recognize a speech, recognizing its speaker will not benefit you! So hearken to my speech to recognize me; Since human is hidden under his tongue and one is not recognized until he speaks his mind. You have not been given the ears unless to hear and you have not been given the eyes unless to see and you have not been given the intellect unless to distinguish what you hear and see and that what is right and what is wrong. So hearken to my speech by your ears and assess it by your intellect so that if it was right, accept it and if it was wrong, decline it. May God bestow you success; Because Satan wants you to not hear so that you will not know, and to not know so that you will be in misery, and is it not that misery comes after ignorance?! I know those who have been before me, have spoken a lot and have irritated you; Since lots of their speeches were lie and they have said things about which they have had no knowledge, and a group of them want you just for themselves and do not speak unless to deceive. They call you to a truth which they themselves are unfamiliar with, and want you a good which they themselves are not being benefited by! They have relied on religion for gaining power and have made the Hereafter a pretext for this world; Otherwise, they neither know the religion as they should, nor they want the Hereafter as it deserves. Now I speak to you, while I neither have hope for power nor have any greed for this world. I am one among you who is being weakened on earth like you and I am not going after superiority over you or creating any corruption on earth. I do not want anything other than to promote good and prohibit from evil, so that God makes anyone whom He wills listen and makes anyone whom He wills deaf, and how do you know?! Perhaps He will alter and reveal some things; Since He is capable of doing anything and have full knowledge about everything...”.
This is the speech of an honest scholar who unlike others does not call people to himself, rather calls them toward God and His caliph on earth and with this description, those who argue about his name and age and nationality and apparent characteristics do not hear his call or hear it and turn a deaf ear to it! The fate of these deaf people inevitably will be nothing but astonishment and misguidance; since seditions will come to them sooner or later and doubts will reach them from front or behind of them and anyone who follows his passion instead of God’s guidance will be lost in the darkness and the salvation will not be for anyone but the pious.
