(70) The meaning of imitation is acting upon someone else’s saying or deed without reason, and therefore acting upon someone else’s saying or deed with reason is not considered imitation, but it is considered following the reason. Therefore, it is permissible to act upon the religious order of scholars in the case that they provide convincing reasons for it from the Book of God or Mutawatir Sunnah of the Prophet or the common sense, rather it is probably considered obligatory to do so; since acting upon it in that case, is acting upon the Book of God or Mutawatir Sunnah of the Prophet or the common sense.

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.
