What is his honor Allamah Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani’s affiliation with Imam Mahdi? Is he Imam Mahdi’s representative?
His honor Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani is the preparer of the grounds for advent of Imam Mahdi Peace be upon him, and he does not have any other claim. Preparing the grounds for the advent of Imam Mahdi peace be upon him is also not a privilege for his honor, rather it is a good deed of him, which is carried out in the form of gathering and training a sufficient number of Muslims to protect and support Imam Mahdi Peace be upon him and it is a perceptible fact on earth. Therefore, it is obligatory to assist his honor by this order ﴿وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَى ۖ﴾; “And cooperate with each other in deeds of piety and beneficence” and quitting the obligatory deed is considered a sin.
May God grant you the chance of practicing in this obligatory deed and He may not put you among the sinners.
