Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani
(22) Believing in the caliphate of the Ahl al-Bayt of the Prophet does not belong to the Shia and it is not based on their sources, rather, it belongs to the original Islam and it is based on the commonalities of all Muslims and therefore, it should not be considered a Shia belief.

I am a man of pulpit[1] and one of the devotees of his Excellency Allamah Khorasani may God protect him, and sometimes in my preachings I use luminous sayings and eloquent sermons of this honorable man in order to make people aware of the true teachings of Islam, but unfortunately, considering the existing security conditions in Iran and the poisoned atmosphere they have created against this oppressed scholar, I am not able to mention his Honor’s name and cannot quote these things explicitly from his Honor; especially since there are fanatics among the people of the mosque who, if they hear the name of this honorable man from my mouth, will not even pray behind me anymore and will cause me many problems. However, I sometimes refer to this honorable man in a brief way and say, for example, “In the words of one of the great men” or “In the words of one of the scholars” or “Some wise men have said” and the like, but I do not know whether these hints are enough or not? In any case, my question is whether this is permissible for me, considering that I intend to promote the true teachings of Islam? If not, what should I do? Thank you and thank this great scholar who is a clear example of «إنّک علی الحقّ المبین»[2] and with his valuable works, he has raised our level of thought and insight toward Islam by several degrees and has corrected our wrong views, especially on the issue of Mahdism, and has started a great and unprecedented cultural revolution in the Islamic world, which promises the global revolution of Mahdi, God willing.

According to the rule which Allamah may God protect him has mentioned regarding the advent of Imam Mahdi, that his advent does not require the gathering of all people and requires the gathering of a sufficient number of them, some questions have arisen for me, which are as follows: 1. Is the quantity and quality of this sufficient number known for him or is its knowledge with God? 2. Did this sufficient number not exist in the time of the caliphs of the past? Given that the caliphs of the past had a large force at times in history, for example, Imam Ali in Siffin had about 130,000 men, Imam Hassan in the war with Mu‘awiya had about 12,000 men, Imam Hussain in Kufa had about 18,000 men, Imam Sadiq during the Khorasani uprising had about 100,000 Khorasanis who wanted him to rise up, even during the absence of Imam Mahdi, the Shia community got organized and ready for the advent many times, for example, during the Safavid period, waiting and readiness for the advent were high, to the point that the great scholars of the Shia such as Majlisi and others, believed it was time for the advent and the Safavid were preparers of the ground for the advent; because most of the narrations corresponded to the conditions of their time, but it did not happen. With this introduction, please explain where the problem were and what were the shortcomings that the Imams of Ahl al-Bayt did not achieve their goals? 3. Do we not have the shortcomings of the past? 4. What is so special about our generation that did not exist in them, while they seem to be better than us physically and mentally? Considering the difficult conditions and the complexity of the situation and our physical and mental weakness that have been created over time, we need God’s special grace as well as Imam Mahdi’s special attention may we be his sacrifice in order to provide a sufficient number of helpers who have not any equals in the pas eras. From every side I went, I gained nothing but terror I seek refuge from this desert and the infinite path I lost my way in this dark night Oh you the guidance star, rise from a corner[1]

We want to know his Honor Mansoor’s opinion about this narration: Amir al-Mu’minin Ali peace be upon him has said: The great Prophet, peace and blessings of God be upon him and his household, said: “A man will rise from Transoxiana who is called ‘Harith ibn Harrath’, the leader of his army is a man called ‘Mansoor’ and will prepare the grounds for the sovereignty of the household of Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him and his household, as the Quraysh prepared the grounds for the sovereignty of God’s Prophet, peace and blessings of God be upon him and his household. It is obligatory for every believer to help him” (Aqd al-Durar, p. 130). We also want to know his Honor’s opinion about this narration: Conjunction occurs between Mars and Saturn once every two years. Imam Ali, peace be upon him, has considered the move of the army of Khorasani and Shu’aib ibn Salih from Samarkand toward Iraq to take place after the full conjunction of these two planets(1) in the year preceding the rise of Imam Mahdi, peace be upon him, and has said: “Be aware, you will have a short time ,after a while, at which you will know some of my words and their correctness will be revealed for you, at the time of occurrence of exact conjunction of Mars and Saturn(1). At this time, consecutive vibrations and earthquakes will happen, and some flags will move from Jeyhoon shore toward Babylon desert” (Mashariq Anwar al-Yaqeen, p. 266, Tatanjiyyah sermon). 1. From old astronomers’ viewpoint, the exact conjunction of two starts is that they will come together at one degree and at one minute in one house, and according to new astronomers, the distance between them is less than five astrological degrees in the view of the viewer on the earth.
