(20) Without placing a caliph on earth who is knowledgeable about the whole of Islam and can teach it to Muslims, it is not possible for them to establish the whole of Islam and therefore, requiring them to do so is against justice. Hence, God has never obligated Muslims to establish the whole of Islam except after leaving someone among them with the knowledge of the whole for their education and guidance; as he has said as a rule: “And there is a guide for any nation”.

We shiites believe that his excellency Mahdi has two kind of occultation: Minor occultation and Major occultation. In the minor occultation, his honor was in contact with people by four elected deputies and after the death of fourth deputy, the major occultation has been started. These four elected deputies are as follows: 1- Uthman ibn Sa'id al-Asadi 2- Abu Jafar Muhammad ibn Uthman 3- Abul Qasim Husayn ibn Ruh al-Nawbakhti 4- Abul Hasan Ali ibn Muhammad al-Samarri The deputyship of these people was general and absolute. Of course in that time, in special cases and in various cities, there were other people who undertook the deputyship of Imam that some believe this deputyship was without intermediating of elected deputies. Among these people Ahmad ibn Hamzah ibn al-Yasa', Muhammad ibn Ibrahim ibn Mahziar, Muhammad ibn Salih and Abu Muhammad Wajinayi can be named. His excellency Mahdi, by a letter to Ali ibn Muhammad, notified about the beginning of major occultation this way: In the name of Allah, the Compassionate the Merciful O Ali ibn Muhammad al-Samarri! May Allah increase the reward of your brothers concerning you (i.e. your demise)! Death will come to you within the next six days. So complete your works and do not nominate any person after you. The sequence of special deputies will come to an end and the Major Occultation will commence with your demise. Now the reappearance will occur only with the permission of Allah, after a prolonged period and after the hearts of people are hardened. And such a period will emerge on my Shias when people will claim that they have seen me. Whoever makes such a claim before the advent of Sufyani and the heavenly voice, is a liar, an impostor. There is no strength and power same that of Allah, the High, the Great. Al-Ghaybah, Shaykh Tusi, p. 395 What is the opinion of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani about this case? Also, what is the opinion of his honor about Minor advent and Major advent in which we shiites believe?

With our greetings, we want to know his honor’s opinion about this narration: Amir al-Mu’minin Ali peace be upon him has said: The great prophet peace be upon him and his household said: “A man will rise from Transoxiana who is called “Harith ibn Harith”, the commander of his corps and the leader of his army is a man called “Mansoor” who will prepare sovereign ruling and monarchy for the household of Muhammad peace be upon him and his household or will provide power and dominance for them, as Quraysh prepared the grounds for sovereign ruling of God’s prophet peace be upon him and his household. It is obligatory to any muslim believer to aid him”. (Aqd al-Durar, p. 130) [Also] we want to know his honor’s opinion about this narration: Conjunction occurs between Mars and Saturn every two years. Imam Ali peace be upon him considers the move of army of Khorasani and Shoaib bin Saleh from Samarkand toward Iraq, following the full conjunction of these two planets(1) a year before the rise of Mahdi peace be upon him: ... Be aware, you will have a short time ,after a while at which some of my speeches and also types of arguments 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 rise up from Jeyhoon shore toward Babel desert ...(2). 1 . From Old astronomers viewpoint, the exact conjunction is when two stars come together at one degree and at one minute in one house, and according to new astronomers, when the distance between them, from the ground viewer’s look, be less than five astrological degrees. 2 .
