Cognition about God’s Caliph on earth; About Mansoor and his preparation of the grounds for advent of Mahdi
With my greeting and respect, I want to know your opinion about the progress of Iraqi army in ISIS-dominated provinces and the defeat of ISIS in Iraq and its suppression in Syria. Do you think with the annihilation of ISIS in Iraq and Syria there will be any other reason for Jihad? Because you did not express your road map or did not express it quite clear. By obtaining strength in middle Asia, you have to cross Iran that they will not allow. Then you have to go to Iraq and then to Syria and Palestine. Is there such a way or not? What areas are the target? You talked about battle, but not its quantity and quality. By what means? Is only cultural means enough or not? If the target is Israel, any kind of military action needs the full support of Muslims, otherwise we will face the full support of western countries for Israel. What is your opinion about this?

Please pay attention to the following points:
Firstly, it has not been asked from you and us to predict incidents of the future; rather it has been asked from you and us to fulfill our duty now and that is recognizing the truth in the light of intellect and based on the book of God and the certain Sunnah of His prophet and helping it, regardless that it will lead to our desired result in this world or not; because you and we are the owners of our works and do not own their results and it is God who decides what the result will be. With this description, those who instead of recognizing the truth and helping it, are busy predicting incidents of the future, are making an obvious mistake. There are ones among them who based on their thoughts and guesses, have drawn an image of the future and have taken it as a standard for cognition; to the extent that if any movement in the area is compatible with their intended image of the future, they will confirm it without investigating it and if any movement in the area is not compatible with their intended image of the future, they will deny it without investigating it! It is clear that this is an obvious deviation; because clearly their thoughts and guesses are merely a conjecture and conjecture has no validity in Islam; as God has said: «وَمَا لَهُمْ بِهِ مِنْ عِلْمٍ ۖ إِنْ يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا الظَّنَّ ۖ وَإِنَّ الظَّنَّ لَا يُغْنِي مِنَ الْحَقِّ شَيْئًا» (Najm/ 28); “And they have thereof no knowledge. They follow not except conjecture, and indeed, conjecture avails not against the truth at all” and has said «إِنْ يَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا الظَّنَّ وَإِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا يَخْرُصُونَ» (An’ām/ 116); “They follow not except conjecture, and they are not but falsifying”!
Secondly, it is clear that incidents of the future will not necessarily occur such that you expect; because God has His own predeterminations and does not follow predeterminations of people; as He has said: «إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ ۚ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدْرًا» (Talāq/ 3); “Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything an extent”; as He does not make haste because of their hastiness and does not do a work which its time has not arrived yet; as He has said: «أَتَىٰ أَمْرُ اللَّهِ فَلَا تَسْتَعْجِلُوهُ ۚ» (Nahl/ 1) “The command of Allah is coming, so be not impatient for it” and has said: «خُلِقَ الْإِنْسَانُ مِنْ عَجَلٍ ۚ سَأُرِيكُمْ آيَاتِي فَلَا تَسْتَعْجِلُونِ» (Anbiā/ 37); “Man was created of haste. I will show you My signs, so do not impatiently urge Me”! With the given description, those who mention a time for the incidents of the future, are liars and those who make haste in realizing them, will end up with seditions; as many times it has been said by Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani: «کَذَبَ الوَقَّاتُون و هَلَکَ المُستَعجِلُون و نَجَی المُسَلِّمُون و إلَینا یَصیرُون»; “Those who mention a time, are Liars and those who make haste will perish and those who are surrendered will be saved and will return toward us”! Yes, if those who mention a time and those who make haste, return to patience and follow the Muhkamat (things we know for certain) instead of Mutashabihat (things we do not know for certain) and fulfill their duty instead of being curious about the future, God will hasten to bring about their relief and will reveal some things which are hidden to them; since He is the most gracious and the most merciful.
Thirdly, the road map of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani is nothing but to fulfill his duty at every given time in which he has, and his duty at every given time depends on his capabilities which expands by people’s support for him; because God does not impose upon anyone a duty but to the extent of his capabilities, and the capabilities of leaders stem from their followers’ support. With this description, if people like you stay where you are and just watch what Mansoor Hashemi Khorassani will do, he will not do anything except the work he is doing now and that is verily introducing the pure and complete Islam to people and teaching and purifying them based on the book of God and the certain Sunnah of His prophet in the light of intellect which is considered a cultural work; but if people like you trouble themselves and support this reformer and warrior scholar, he can do many works so that the grounds for the advent of Mahdi will be prepared and this is the interpretation of his name “Mansoor”; because “Mansoor”, in the meaning of “help receiver”, is meaningful with helping him and with no “Nāser”, no “Mansoor” emerges either; as God has said: «وَلَقَدْ سَبَقَتْ كَلِمَتُنَا لِعِبَادِنَا الْمُرْسَلِينَ إِنَّهُمْ لَهُمُ الْمَنْصُورُونَ» (Sāffāt/ 171, 172); “And Our word has already preceded for Our servants, the messengers, [That] they verily would be helped”!
Fourthly, it is possible that the incidents of Shām and Iraq be the beginning of the incidents which have been promised before; because there is no eternal catastrophe, except the catastrophe of Hell which does not diminish; as God has said: «خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا ۖ لَا يُخَفَّفُ عَنْهُمُ الْعَذَابُ وَلَا هُمْ يُنْظَرُونَ» (Baqara/ 162); “They will live in it forever; neither their punishment shall be lightened nor shall they be given respite” and with the given description, rising and falling of seditions of this world are natural. So while they are rising do not become disappointed and while they are falling do not feel secure; until God brings about your relief and fills the earth with justice after it has been filled with oppression and the end is for the pious.
