(65) In the Islamic worldview, man was not created just to eat and sleep, but to develop in all aspects and to attain divine pleasure, and this is something that is possible only with the rule of God’s Caliph on earth and therefore, only those deny the need for such ruler who see no need to develop in all aspects and to attain divine pleasure.

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, page 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, page 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 . Mashariqul Anwar al-Yaqeen, page 266, the Tatanjiyyah sermon.

I am a resident of Afghanistan. ISIS has begun its work here and by the excuse of unjust caliphate is hiring and taking allegiance from people for itself! It is said that from April it is going to began what it has begun in Iraq! I beg his honor Mansoor who considers allegiance for God alone and invites toward Mahdi’s caliphate to stop them and stand against them and in anyway that he can, does not let them who are worse than Taliban to spill Muslims’ blood specially poor Shiites of this country; Since if they began their work here it is not known what calamities they will bring upon these people specially Shiites. I think no one except his honor Mansoor is left for us who can stand against this Gog and Magog! Because only he considers allegiance for God unlike Taliban and Al-Qaeda and ISIS and such, who invite to pledge allegiance to themeselves and behind the titles of caliphate and Islamic state, are carrying on their works! For God’s sake do something, because time is short and the government of here is weak and can not do much work! The units of Taliban also have joined them! Your honor Mansoor! Your invitation toward pledging allegiance to Allah and the caliphate of his honor Imam Mahdi, is true! For God’s sake try to stop vagrancy and homelessness of us, the people of Afghanistan, from starting again so that we do not become like the people of Iraq! Find and bring his honor Imam Mahdi as soon as possible so that he will rescue us from this seven-headed dragon!
