Knowledge and ignorance; Scholars’ responsibilities and their performance
How on earth is it possible that all these scholars and jurisprudents and mujtahids throughout centuries and ages have not realized all these aspects about Islamic beliefs and laws and now at this time, Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani has realized them all?

You tell us how it is not possible, so that we would tell how it is possible! Moreover, it is not like that none of scholars, jurisprudents and mujtahids throughout centuries and ages have not realized any of these beliefs and laws. But some of them, among predecessors in particular, have realized many of these beliefs and laws, but then they were covered for posterities in the passage of centuries and ages; As, for example, some scholars, jurisprudents and mujtahids among the Shiites, such as Sharif Murtaza (Died 436 AH) and Shaikh Tusi (Died 60 AH) have pointed to some reminders of his Excellency Mansoor in their books and treatises, such as lack of authority of wahid narrations and role of people in non-advent of Mahdi, and some other scholars and jurisprudents and mujtahids, even in recent decades, have admitted problems of absolute guardianship of jurisprudent, and many scholars and jurisprudents and mujtahids from the Sunni had the same opinion as his Excellency Mansoor about lack of permission to imitate scholars. Hence, his Excellency Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani does not claim to have brought anything new, but rather has reminded some noble and deep-rooted beliefs and laws and has spent his time in reviving the early teachings and knowledge of Islam, which have been obsolesced and forgotten throughout centuries and ages. Therefore, he is only a reminder and is not an innovator in the field of Islamic beliefs and laws.
