Some of our helpers informed us and said: His honor Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, before the sedition of Daesh began, invited a group of people to know Islam and prepare the grounds for advent of Mahdi. So one day he heard in the mosque that they were saying: he is lying! So he went to the pulpit and praised God and sent greetings to His Prophet and then said:
“O people! Where are you going and where were you stopped?! Do you think that I am lying?! About whom?! God?! Whereas I, unlike you, do not attribute anything to Him out of conjecture! Or about the Caliph of God?! Whereas I do not invite you except to him, and if I were thrown from the sky, it would have been better for me rather than lying about him. No, I swear by God, I have not lied, but you have failed to understand what I am saying, and you will soon realize its truth, when seditions surround you like roaring waves and riots approach you like destructive tornadoes, and you will find no one to show you the path of salvation but me. Woe to you! Do you think that I am talking out of my personal desires? Whereas as you can see, I stand upon an evidence from my Lord! Or do you think that I am interested in your world? Whereas as you can see, I do not ask for anything from you and I have made myself the target of arrows of disaster! Or do you think that I am seeking your presidency? Whereas I do not find anything from your presidency but suffering of the day and awakening of the night! No, there is no way that these assumptions apply to me. I follow the path of the Quran and I light the lamp of Sunnah and I call to Mahdi and my supporter is God and soon a big-bellied and bad-tempered man will dominate you and will taste and drink your blood like a leech. Yes, O you fatherless! Increase your pressure! So that they would know who the liar is and who the truthful is! And you ... [name of a city] that is adorned like a bride in the chamber! How will you be?! I wish I knew! When the battlements of your towers burn in the flames and turbulent winds scatter your ashes in the dusty air of the world. Oh, what a long night is ahead!”
And then he came down from the pulpit.
Explanation of the Saying:
What his honor means by “I, unlike you, do not attribute anything to Him out of conjecture” is that people generally believe in the authenticity of conjectural narrations and attribute beliefs and laws to God based on it and this inadvertently leads to attribute lying to Him, while his honor, unlike them, does not consider the conjectural narrations as proof and does not attribute anything to God except on the basis of the Quran and the Mutawatir Sunnah, which are certain, and therefore, it is not possible for him to attribute lies to God, and his honor’s saying that “seditions surround you like roaring waves and riots approach you like destructive tornadoes” is the news of seditions and riots that are currently spreading in the world of Islam and is developing constantly, and his honor could saw them before, and what his honor means by “as you can see, I stand upon an evidence from my Lord” is that he moves based on the specific system of thought and sound Islamic principles which are explained in the noble book “Return to Islam” and such a movement cannot be out of desires, and what his honor means by “I do not ask for anything from you and I have made myself the target of arrows of disaster” is that if he had an eye on the world of the people, he would have undoubtedly asked them for money and put himself in comfort, while he does not ask them for money and put himself in the most difficult worldly conditions and therefore, such accusation does not apply to him and what his honor means by “I do not find anything from your presidency but suffering of the day and awakening of the night” is that presidency over them is not an economic or political presidency to have a material benefit for him, but it is a spiritual and cultural leadership to educate and train them, which is considered a crime by the oppressive rulers and therefore, it only brings day suffering and night awakening to him, and apparently the meaning of his saying that “a big-bellied and bad-tempered man will dominate you and will taste and drink your blood like a leech” is informing the emergence of Abu Bakr Baghdadi, the leader of Daesh, who is a big-bellied and bad-tempered man who sheds the blood of Muslims and increases his pressure on them, and this is considered one of his honor’s theurgies and his information from the future, and the name of the city where his honor announced the burning of its towers in the flames has been removed due to some security considerations and sensitivities in the region, and what his honor means by “what a long night is ahead” is probably referring to prolongation of these seditions and riots that may God, by His mercy, protect his honor’s friends from their effects.
