What is the secret of the black flags of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani? Is it not true that he is not a fake claimant? So what’s his intention by use of black flags?

Answer to question: 3 Date: 20/01/2015

Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani is not a fake claimant, and he has no similarity to them in terms of thoughts, conversation and performance and this is obvious and tangible to those who are knowledgeable and fair. With this in mine, the secret of his use of black flags is the following three reasons:

Firstly, using black flags, is the tradition [Sunnah] of the Messenger of God peace and salutation be upon him and his household; Because according to Mutawatir narrations, the color of the flags of his excellency during the battles were black and with this description, utilization of black flags by Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani in the great cultural battle that he has started in order to fight against ignorance and imitation and passions and worldliness and prejudice and arrogance and superstition among Muslims and to establish pure and complete Islam, is in respect with adherence to the Messenger of God peace and salutation be upon him and his household and also is to revive Islamic signatures and is considered a symbolic act to point out the movement “Return to Islam”.

Secondly, utilization of black flags is a common tradition among those who are in a state of mourning and is considered a conventional sign to announce tragedy and Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani is mourning for the tragedy of absence of Mahdi peace be upon him and for the vast and deep political, cultural and economic degeneration of Muslims and in this respect, he will use black flags until the time of advent of Mahdi peace be upon him and until the time when reformation of Muslims affairs takes place so that this way, he attracts the attention of everyone toward existence of a great tragedy and a regretful trauma in the world.

Thirdly, utilization of black flags, is an evident opposition with a corrupt and oppressor group named as “ISIL” that has recently appeared in the west side of world of Islam; Because this group has used black flags and claims to revive Islamic Caliphate and Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani by utilization of black flags under the light of redefinition of Islamic Caliphate and invitation toward Caliphate of Mahdi peace be upon him instead of an ISIL Caliphate, is intending to oppose this hazardous and enormous deviation from pure and complete Islam and has risen to culturally compete with that; As he himself has said in an excerpt from the book “Return to Islam” (Page 341) referring to this group:

“Therefore I wanted to prevent from this sedition and take away the battle field from such individuals. Yet I heard that a voice of the wrong is rising from the west, therefore I wanted that a voice of the truth also be heard from the east so that only one voice is not heard in the world, lest Muslims gather around the wrong and God’s wrath falls down on them. Because sovereign ruling only belongs to God and He will bestow that to anyone of His servants who He wills, and He has not willed anybody other than Mahdi Fatimid with whom household of prophet Mohammad and all Muslims are content.”

Therefore, as far as it goes, two black flags have risen in the world of Islam such that one of them in the west invites toward ISIL type of Caliphate and possesses all material and weaponry resources under the shadow of hypocrites and unbelievers support and due to its malice attracts every mosquito and fly from every corner of the world and another one in the east invites toward Caliphate of Mahdi and under shadow of unbelievers and hypocrites hostility does not possess any material or weaponry resources and due to its purity does not have any attraction for flies and mosquitoes which have filled the world and continues to its scholarly and cultural efforts for awakening of the Muslims and their return to complete and pure Islam, in a climax of loneliness and innocence. Indeed it is clear that Muslims can join either of the two flags that they find more righteous and evaluate it more in conformity to the book of God and tradition [Sunnah] of His prophet peace and salutation be upon him and his household, but there is no doubt that those who have inclinations toward wickedness of oppression and crime and are not pursuing the purity of justice and Hikmah [wisdom] and prefer wealth and abundance and weaponry to knowledge and reason and being suppressed on earth, will never come to the flag of the east, rather they rush toward the flag of the west; Because only those who have detached their hearts from this world and have attached to hereafter and have unbound themselves from the chains of ignorance and imitation and passions and prejudice and arrogance and superstition, will come to the flag of the east and they are very few and numerable.

This is the secret behind utilization of black flags by Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, but we wish those who have focused all their endeavor and concern to margins of the movement of his honor and have no question other than physical characteristics and color of the flags of his honor, also pay attention to the context of his important and revolutionary message and do not be far from knowledge, Hikmah [wisdom] and intellectuality to such an extent; Because they will never be able to access it from such a distant position; As God has said: «وَأَنَّىٰ لَهُمُ التَّنَاوُشُ مِنْ مَكَانٍ بَعِيدٍ» (Saba/ 52); “And they said we have believed in, while how can they access that from a distant position?!”. Sometimes it seems that there is no deep thinker left in the world and between Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani and people of his time there is a great distance as far as heaven to earth and there is no one except him and his little helpers to help Mahdi! Unless God, by his great grace, creates a group to help this lonely Imam, otherwise not much can be accomplished by this one person and his small group of helpers for his excellency, against these massive groups of enemies who are surfing over one another. Are there not enough people under this vast sky and on this widespread earth to respond to and accept the invitation of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani toward Mahdi and roll up sleeves to help his Excellency?! If there is not enough people to do this, then it is better that the heaven falls on earth or the earth swallows its people, because there is no good in mankind.
