Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani
(49) Mahdi’s need for the demand of a sufficient number of people and their practical support of him to form and maintain his sovereignty is a natural and rational need that arises from the nature of sovereignty and is necessary for any sovereignty regardless of who rules it, to the extent that even the sovereignty of the Messenger of God peace be upon him and his household was not formed and maintained without the sufficient number of people and their practical support of him without the demand of a sufficient number of people and it is clear that the Mahdi is not better than the Messenger of God peace be upon him and his household.

Translation of the saying:

One of our companions informed us and said: the night before my trip I went to his honor Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani to bid farewell to him and I said: “I may be your sacrifice, give me an advice; because I will be travelling and I will see a number of your companions and supporters.” So he kindly took my hand and said:

“I advise you and my companions and supporters to fear God in overt and in covert and I promote good and forbid evil among you and whoever join you in future. Perform mandatory commands of Almighty God, abandon forbidden deeds and keep the limits. Be kind to one another and avoid enmity. Set humbleness and politeness as your ornaments because children of Adam have not become more decorated by anything other than those two and absorb power and strength from patience and prayer because no servant of Almighty God has absorbed power and strength from anything more than those two. Make plans for the day of judgement -which will come sooner or later- and find a solution for the ignominy of that day. Remember death so often because death remembrance is like a deterrent shield and do not forget Almighty God because Almighty God remembrance is a healing remedy. Your youth should respect your elderlies and your elderlies should have mercy over your youth. Mingle and communicate with good people and stay away from bad people and escape from them. Inform those who do not know and teach the ignorant. Show the path to those who are lost and respond to those who ask. Be patient with stupidity of the fool and stay quiet; when they curse you to annoy you and when they slander you to bother you; Because they did so to messengers of God before you and they do so to us more than they do so to you. You, among them, are like a honey bee among the birds; there is no bird unless who deems bee as a small useless creature whereas if the birds knew what a bee carries with itself they would never deem it valueless and small. Earth is a dilapidated ruin and time has swelled like a lousy dead body, but we have not seen a night that has not been followed by the day. Therefore wait; because your remedy is close”.
