Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani
(42) Whenever a sufficient number of people come together to help Imam Mahdi peace be upon him with their wealth and life, his Excellency will introduce himself to them, even though they have not been in contact with him before, and this is the key to the lock of his advent.

1 . أَخْبَرَنَا وَلِيدُ بْنُ مَحْمُودٍ السَّجِسْتَانِيُّ، قَالَ: كَتَبْتُ إِلَى الْمَنْصُورِ الْهَاشِمِيِّ الْخُرَاسَانِيِّ أَسْأَلُهُ عَمَّا يَفْعَلُ النَّاسُ فِي الْحِدَادِ عَلَى أَهْلِ بَيْتِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ، فَكَتَبَ إِلَيَّ: لَا بَأْسَ بِذِكْرِ أَهْلِ بَيْتِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَوَصْفِ أَعْمَالِهِمْ وَالثَّنَاءِ عَلَيْهِمْ بِالْحَقِّ، وَيَحْرُمُ الْكِذْبُ فِيهِمْ وَالْإِفْتِرَاءُ عَلَيْهِمْ قَطْعًا، وَلَا بَأْسَ بِالْبُكَاءِ عَلَى مَصَائِبِهِمْ وَإِنْشَادِ الشِّعْرِ فِيهِمْ إِذَا كَانَ صِدْقًا، وَيُكْرَهُ ضَرْبُ الرُّؤُوسِ وَالْخُدُودِ وَالصُّدُورِ وَالظُّهُورِ كَمَا يَفْعَلُ الْعَامَّةُ، لِقَوْلِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ: «لَيْسَ مِنَّا مَنْ ضَرَبَ الْخُدُودَ وَشَقَّ الْجُيُوبَ وَدَعَا بِدَعْوَى الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ»، وَقَوْلِهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ: «أَنَا بَرِي‌ءٌ مِمَّنْ حَلَقَ وَسَلَقَ وَخَرَقَ»، وَإِنَّمَا الْمَرْغُوبُ فِيهِ الْبُكَاءُ وَلَيْسَ وَرَاءَ ذَلِكَ شَيْ‌ءٌ مَشْرُوعٌ، لِقَوْلِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ: «إِنَّهُ مَهْمَا كَانَ مِنَ الْعَيْنِ وَمِنَ الْقَلْبِ فَمِنَ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَمِنَ الرَّحْمَةِ، وَمَا كَانَ مِنَ الْيَدِ وَمِنَ اللِّسَانِ فَمِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ»، وَكَذَلِكَ الضَّرْبُ فِي الْأَرْضِ بِآلَاتِ اللَّهْوِ مَعَ الرَّايَاتِ وَالْأَعْلَامِ الْمُبْتَدَعَةِ، فَكُلُّ ذَلِكَ بِدْعَةٌ وَكُلُّ بِدْعَةٍ ضَلَالَةٌ وَكُلُّ ضَلَالَةٍ سَبِيلُهَا إِلَى النَّارِ، وَلَا بَأْسَ بِالْإِجْتِمَاعِ فِي الْمَسَاجِدِ وَالْبُيُوتِ لِمَدْحِهِمْ وَذِكْرِ مَصَائِبِهِمْ وَالْبُكَاءِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَتَعْزِيَةِ ذَوِي مَوَدَّتِهِمْ مَا لَمْ يَكُنْ مَعَهُ كِذْبٌ أَوْ فُحْشٌ أَوْ ضَرْبٌ أَوْ جَرْحٌ أَوْ تَبْذِيرٌ أَوْ تَأْخِيرُ صَلَاةٍ عَنْ أَوَّلِ وَقْتِهَا، وَقَدْ بَكَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ عَلَى وَلَدِهِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، وَذَكَرَ خَدِيجَةَ عَلَيْهَا السَّلَامُ فَمَدَحَهَا وَبَكَى عَلَيْهَا، وَحَثَّ عَلَى الْبُكَاءِ عَلَى حَمْزَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ، وَبَكَتْ فَاطِمَةُ عَلَيْهَا السَّلَامُ عَلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَمَدَحَتْهُ، وَكَانَ سَعْدُ بْنُ مُعَاذٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ يُمْدَحُ عِنْدَ قَبْرِهِ وَرَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَسْمَعُ فَلَا يَنْهَى عَنْهُ، فَكُلُّ هَذَا سُنَّةٌ وَإِنَّمَا الْحَرَامُ الْبِدْعَةُ.

Translation of the Saying:

Walid bin Mahmoud Sajestani informed us and said: I wrote a letter to his honor Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani and asked him about the things that people do in mourning for the family of the Prophet peace be upon him and his household, so he wrote to me: There is nothing wrong with remembering the Ahl al-Bayt of the Prophet peace be upon him and his household and describing their deeds and praising them with truth, and lying about them and slandering them is definitely forbidden, and there is nothing wrong with crying over their sufferings and composing poetry for them when it is true, but it is Makruh to hit the head, face, chest and back in a way that the majority do; because of what the Messenger of God peace be upon him and his household said: “One who hits their face and tears their clothing and calls for ignorance, this person is not one of us” and his Excellency peace be upon him and his household also said: “I hate anyone who pull their hair and weep and tear their clothing” and the only appropriate act is crying and beyond that is not legitimate; because of what the Messenger of God peace be upon him and his household said: “Everything that comes from the eyes and from the heart is from God Almighty and from mercy, and everything that comes from the hand and the tongue is from the devil” and this applies to marching on the ground with invented flags and signs; because all of them are Bid’ah, and every Bid’ah is misguidance, and every misguidance leads to fire, and there is no problem in gathering in mosques and houses to praise them and to mention their sufferings and cry for them and sympathize with their fans, whenever there is no lie or insult or beating or injury or extravagance or delay in the prayer on the onset of its time, and the Messenger of God peace be upon him and his household, cried over his son Ibrahim and remembered Khadijah peace be upon her and praised her and cried over her and encouraged crying over Hamza may God be please with him, and Fatima peace be upon her cried over the Messenger of God peace be upon him and his household and praised him, and Sa’d ibn Mu’adh may God be pleased with him, was being praised at his grave, while the Messenger of God peace be upon him and his household listened and did not forbid it, therefore all these acts are Sunnah and only Bid’ah is forbidden.

2 . أَخْبَرَنَا وَلِيدُ بْنُ مَحْمُودٍ، قَالَ: قُلْتُ لِلْمَنْصُورِ: إِنِّي حَدَّثْتُ فَرِيقًا مِنْ هَؤُلَاءِ الشِّيعَةِ بِنَهْيِكَ عَنْ لَطْمِ الْوُجُوهِ وَشَقِّ الْجُيُوبِ فِي الْمَأْتَمِ لِأَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ، فَكَبُرَ عَلَيْهِمْ وَاسْتَصْعَبُوهُ وَقَالُوا: إِنَّ زَيْنَبَ بِنْتَ عَلِيٍّ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا لَطَمَتْ وَجْهَهَا وَشَقَّتْ جَيْبَهَا عَلَى قَتْلِ أَخِيهَا! قَالَ: كَذَبُوا عَلَى زَيْنَبَ بِنْتِ عَلِيٍّ! أَلَمْ يَعْلَمُوا أَنَّ أَخَاهَا أَوْصَى إِلَيْهَا لَيْلَةَ عَاشُورَاءَ وَأَقْسَمَ عَلَيْهَا بِأَنْ لَا تَلْطَمِي عَلَيَّ وَجْهًا وَلَا تَشُقِّي عَلَيَّ جَيْبًا إِذَا أَنَا هَلَكْتُ؟! أَفَحَسِبُوا أَنَّهَا عَصَتْ أَخَاهَا وَلَمْ تَعْمَلْ بِوَصِيَّتِهِ؟! لَا وَاللَّهِ، بَلْ أَطَاعَتْهُ، وَكَانَتْ صَالِحَةً تَقِيَّةً، ثُمَّ قَالَ: مَنْ كَانَ عَارِفًا بِحَقِّ الْحُسَيْنِ فَلَا يَلْطِمَنَّ عَلَيْهِ وَجْهًا وَلَا يَشُقَّنَّ عَلَيْهِ جَيْبًا، وَلْيَعْمَلْ بِوَصِيَّتِهِ كَمَا عَمِلَتْ زَيْنَبُ بِنْتُ عَلِيٍّ.

Translation of the Saying:

Walid ibn Mahmud informed us and said: I said to Mansour: I informed a group of this Shia about your prohibition of hitting faces and tearing the clothing while mourning for the Ahl al-Bayt, so it became hard on them and they considered (accepting) it to be difficult and they said: Zainab, the daughter of Ali may God be pleased with her, hit her face for her brother’s martyrdom and tore her clothing! He said: They lied about Zainab, Ali’s daughter! Did they not know that her brother made a will to her on the night of Ashura and made her swear that whenever I passed away, do not hit your face and do not tear your clothing because of me?! So did they think that she disobeyed her brother and did not follow his will?! No, I swear by God, but she obeyed him and she was a righteous and pious woman. Then he said: Whoever is familiar with the rightfulness of Hussain then shall not hit his face because of him and shall not tear his clothing and shall follow his will, as Zainab, the daughter of Ali did.

3 . أَخْبَرَنَا عِيسَى بْنُ عَبْدِ الْحَمِيدِ الْجُوزَجَانِيُّ، قَالَ: دَخَلَ عَلَيْهِ رِجَالٌ مِنَ الشِّيعَةِ وَسَأَلُوهُ عَنْ فِعَالِهِمْ فِي الشَّهْرَيْنِ مُحَرَّمٍ وَصَفَرٍ، فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: إِنَّكُمْ تُرِيدُونَ مِنِّي أَنْ أَرْقَصَ بِمِزْمَارِكُمْ، وَلَكِنِّي لَا أَقُولُ إِلَّا الْحَقَّ! فَاذْكُرُوا سَيِّدَ شَبَابِ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ وَابْكُوا عَلَيْهِ، وَلَا تَضْرِبُوا عَلَيْهِ رَأْسًا وَلَا صَدْرًا وَلَا ظَهْرًا، فَإِنَّهُ وَاللَّهِ لَوْ كَانَ فِيكُمْ لَنَهَاكُمْ عَنْ ذَلِكَ كَمَا نَهَى أُخْتَهُ زَيْنَبَ! فَخَرَجَ الرِّجَالُ وَهُمْ غَضْبَى، فَقُلْتُ لَهُ: لَوْ تَرَكْتَهُمْ يَضْرِبُونَ رُؤُوسَهُمْ حَتَّى يَمُوتُوا! أَلَا تَرَى أَنَّهُمْ يَنْقِمُونَ مِنْكَ؟! قَالَ: سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ! فَأَيْنَ النَّهْيُ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ؟!

Translation of the Saying:

Eisa Ibn Abd al-Hamid Jawzjani informed us and said: Some men from the Shia came to his honor and asked him about their actions in the two months of Muharram and Safar, so he said to them: You want me to dance to your tune, but I say nothing but the truth! So remember the master of the youth of Paradise and cry over him and do not hit your head and chest and back because of him; because I swear by God, if he was among you, he would forbid you from doing so, as he forbade his sister Zainab! Then those men left in a rage, so I said to his honor: I wish you would have let them hit their heads to die! Do you not see that they blame you?! He said: Glory be to God! So what about the prohibition of bad?

4 . أَخْبَرَنَا عَبْدُ السَّلَامِ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْقَيُّومِ، قَالَ: دَخَلَ عَلَيْهِ رَجُلٌ مِنَ الشِّيعَةِ وَقَالَ لَهُ: أَنْتَ الَّذِي كَرِهْتَ لَطْمَ الْخُدُودِ وَضَرْبَ الرُّؤُوسِ -يَعْنِي فِي الْمَأْتَمِ لِلْحُسَيْنِ؟! قَالَ: لَا، وَلَكِنْ كَرِهَهُ اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ! قَالَ الرَّجُلُ: أَلَمْ تَعْلَمْ أَنَّ نِسَاءَ الْحُسَيْنِ لَمَّا قُتِلَ تِلْكَ الْقَتْلَةَ خَرَجْنَ لَاطِمَاتِ الْوُجُوهِ؟! قَالَ: كَانَ يَنْهَاهُنَّ عَنْ ذَلِكَ! قَالَ الرَّجُلُ: وَلَكِنَّهُنَّ فَعَلْنَ! قَالَ: إِذًا لَا نُطِيعُهُنَّ فِي عِصْيَانِهِنَّ! قَالَ الرَّجُلُ: كَانَتْ فِيهِنَّ زَيْنَبُ بِنْتُ عَلِيٍّ! قَالَ: وَمَا يُدْرِيكَ مَنْ كَانَتْ فِيهِنَّ يَا لُكَعُ؟! كَانَتْ وَاللَّهِ أَتْقَى لِلَّهِ مِنْ أَنْ تَعْصِيَ أَخَاهَا فَتَلْطِمَ خَدَّهَا أَمَامَ الرِّجَالِ! ثُمَّ قَالَ: مَا أُمِرْنَا بِطَاعَتِهَا، وَلَكِنْ أُمِرْنَا بِطَاعَةِ الْحُسَيْنِ!

Translation of the Saying:

Abd al-Salam ibn Abd al-Qayyum informed us and said: A man from the Shia came to his honor and said to him: Are you one who averse hitting faces and heads -in mourning for Hussain?! He said: No, but God and His Messenger averse it! The man said: Do you not know that Hussain’s wives ran out when he was killed in that way while hitting their faces?! He said: his Excellency forbade them from doing this! The man said: But they did it! He said: In that case, we will not obey them in their disobedience! The man said: Among them was Zainab, the daughter of Ali! He said: How do you know who were among them you ignorant?! I swear by God, she was more God-fearing than disobeying her brother and hitting her face in front of men! Then he said: (Assuming that it is so) we are not commanded to obey her, but we are commanded to obey Hussain.

5 . أَخْبَرَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ الْبَلْخِيُّ، قَالَ: مَرَّ الْمَنْصُورُ عَلَى جَمَاعَةٍ مِنَ الشِّيعَةِ وَهُمْ يَضْرِبُونَ ظُهُورَهُمْ بِالسَّلَاسِلِ، فَقَالَ: مَنْ هَؤُلَاءِ؟! قُلْنَا: جَمَاعَةٌ يَزْعُمُونَ أَنَّهُمْ مِنْ شِيعَةِ الْحُسَيْنِ! قَالَ: كَذَبُوا! لَوْ كَانُوا مِنْ شِيعَتِهِ لَاتَّبَعُوهُ! أَلَمْ يَعْلَمُوا أَنَّهُ كَانَ يَنْهَى عَنْ مِثْلِ هَذَا؟! قُلْنَا: إِنَّ لَهُمْ عُلَمَاءَ بِإِيرَانَ وَهُمْ يَأْمُرُونَهُمْ بِهَذَا! قَالَ: نَعَمْ، شِنْشِنَةٌ أَعْرِفُهَا مِنْ أَخْزَمَ!

Translation of the Saying:

Abdullah ibn Muhammad Balkhi informed us and said: Mansoor passed by a group of Shia who were hitting their back with chains, so he said: Who are these people?! We said: These are the people who think that they are Shias of Hussain! He said: They are lying! If they were his Shia, they would have followed him! Do they not know that he forbade acts like this?! We said: For them, there are scholars in Iran who order them to do this! He said: Yes, it is a bad temper that I know from Akhzam!

Explanation of the Saying:

His saying “it is a bad temper that I know from Akhzam” is a proverb among the Arabs, and “Akhzam” was the name of a man from Bani Taya, and it means that I am familiar with this extremist and common approach of scholars in Iran.

6 . أَخْبَرَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ الْبَلْخِيُّ، قَالَ: كُنَّا مَعَ الْمَنْصُورِ فِي طَرِيقٍ، فَمَرَّ عَلَيْنَا رِجَالٌ مِنَ الشِّيعَةِ وَهُمْ يَضْرِبُونَ صُدُورَهُمْ وَأَدْبَارَهُمْ وَيَقُولُونَ: لَبَّيْكَ يَا حُسَيْنُ! لَبَّيْكَ يَا حُسَيْنُ! فَأَقْبَلَ عَلَيْنَا وَقَالَ: أَلَا إِنَّ الْحُسَيْنَ لَبَرِيءٌ مِنْهُمْ كَمَا تَبَرَّأَ مِنْهُمْ جَعْفَرُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ! قُلْنَا: وَهَلْ تَبَرَّأَ مِنْهُمْ جَعْفَرُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ؟! قَالَ: نَعَمْ، بَلَغَهُ أَنَّ رِجَالًا مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكُوفَةِ يَقُولُونَ: لَبَّيْكَ يَا جَعْفَرَ بْنَ مُحَمَّدٍ لَبَّيْكَ! فَتَبَرَّأَ مِنْهُمْ وَقَالَ: مَا كَانَتْ تَلْبِيَةُ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ هَكَذَا! إِنَّمَا لَبَّيَتْ بِلَبَّيْكَ اللَّهُمَّ لَبَّيْكَ، لَبَّيْكَ لَا شَرِيكَ لَكَ! ثُمَّ قَالَ الْمَنْصُورُ: أَمَا وَاللَّهِ لَوْلَا هَؤُلَاءِ السَّفْلَةُ لَدَخَلَ النَّاسُ فِي هَذَا الْأَمْرِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَلَكِنَّهُمْ بَدَّلُوهُ وَقَبَّحُوهُ وَبَغَّضُوهُ!

Translation of the Saying:

Abdullah bin Muhammad Balkhi informed us and said: We were on our way with Mansoor, so some Shia men passed us who were hitting their chest and back and saying: Labbayk Ya Hussain! Labbayk Ya Hussain! So he turned to us and said: Know that Hussain has nothing to do with them, just as Jafar ibn Muhammad disavowed them! We said: Did Jafar ibn Muhammad disavow them?! He said: Yes, it came to him that some men from the people of Kufa say: Labbayk Ya Jafar ibn Muhammad Labbayk! So he disavowed them and said: The prophets did not say Labbayk like this! They used to say: “Labbayk Allahuma Labbayk, Labbayk La Sharika Lak”! Then Mansoor said: Know that by God, if it were not for these wicked persons, people would have entered into this matter[1] in groups, but they changed it and made it ugly and hated!

7 . أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الشِّيرَازِيُّ، قَالَ: قُلْتُ لِلْمَنْصُورِ: إِنَّا نَجْتَمِعُ فِي الْبُيُوتِ فَنَذْكُرُ مَا أَصَابَ الْحُسَيْنَ بْنَ عَلِيٍّ بِكَرْبَلَاءَ، قَالَ: لَا بَأْسَ بِهِ، قُلْتُ: وَنُنْشِدُ فِيهِ شِعْرًا، قَالَ: لَا بَأْسَ بِهِ، قُلْتُ: وَنَبْكِي عَلَيْهِ، قَالَ: لَا بَأْسَ بِهِ، قُلْتُ: وَنَلْعَنُ قَاتِلَهُ، قَالَ: لَا بَأْسَ بِهِ، قُلْتُ: وَنَضْرِبُ صُدُورَنَا وَرُؤُوسَنَا، قَالَ: أَمَّا هَذَا فَلَا؛ فَإِنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ كَانَ يَنْهَى عَنْهُ، ثُمَّ قَالَ: أَمَا تَرْضَوْنَ أَنْ تَفْعَلُوا مَا أُمِرْتُمْ بِهِ وَتَتْرُكُوا مَا نُهِيتُمْ عَنْهُ فَتُلَاقُوا الْحُسَيْنَ فِي الْجَنَّةِ؟!

Translation of the Saying:

Muhammad ibn Ibrahim Shirazi informed us and said: I said to Mansoor: We gather in houses and remember what happened to Hussain ibn Ali in Karbala. He said: There is no problem. I said: And we compose poems about his Excellency. He said: There is no problem. I said: And we cry over his Excellency. He said: There is no problem. I said: And we curse his killer. He said: There is no problem. I said: And we hit our chest and head. He said: But not this one; because the Messenger of God peace be upon him and his household forbade it. Then he said: Do you not like to do whatever you are ordered to and abandon whatever you are forbidden from, so you would meet Hussain in Paradise?!

8 . أَخْبَرَنَا يُونُسُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْخَتْلَانِيُّ، قَالَ: دَخَلَ الْمَنْصُورُ عَلَى أَصْحَابِهِ فِي يَوْمِ عَاشُورَاءَ وَهُمْ يَتَذَاكَرُونَ، فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: رَحِمَ اللَّهُ امْرَءً مِنْكُمْ ذَكَرَ ابْنَ بِنْتِ نَبِيِّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ فِي هَذَا الْيَوْمِ فَبَكَى عَلَيْهِ! أَلَا وَاللَّهِ قَتَلُوهُ وَهُوَ يَدْعُوهُمْ إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَهُمْ يَدْعُونَهُ إِلَى النَّارِ! قَالَ: فَاجْتَمَعْنَا عِنْدَهُ وَذَكَرْنَا الْحُسَيْنَ بْنَ عَلِيٍّ وَبَكَيْنَا عَلَيْهِ، وَكَأَنِّي بِدُمُوعِ الْمَنْصُورِ تَجْرِي عَلَى خَدَّيْهِ وَلَا يُسْمَعُ مِنْهُ أَنِينٌ وَلَا عَوِيلٌ!

Translation of the Saying:

Yunus bin Abdullah Khatlani informed us and said: Mansoor came to his companions on the Day of Ashura while they were talking together, so he said to them: May God have mercy on those of you who remember the son of the daughter of their Prophet peace be upon him and his household, so cry for him! Be aware that by God, they killed him while he was inviting them to Paradise, and they were inviting him to the Fire! (Yunus) said: So we gathered around his honor and we remembered Hussain ibn Ali and cried for him, and it was as if I saw Mansoor’s tears flowing on his cheeks without any sound of screaming or shouting that could be heard!

9 . أَخْبَرَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ حَبِيبٍ الطَّبَرِيُّ، قَالَ: دَخَلَ الْمَنْصُورُ بَيْتًا فِيهِ جَمَاعَةٌ مِنَ الشِّيعَةِ يَذْكُرُونَ مَصَائِبَ حُسَيْنٍ وَيَبْكُونَ عَلَيْهِ، فَجَلَسَ فِيهِمْ حَتَّى قَالَ قَائِلُهُمْ: أَنَا كَلْبُ حُسَيْنٍ! فَلَمَّا قَالَ ذَلِكَ قَامَ الْمَنْصُورُ وَخَرَجَ وَهُوَ يَقُولُ: وَاللَّهِ مَا جَاءَهُمْ حُسَيْنٌ لِيَكُونُوا كِلَابًا! أَلَمْ يَعْلَمُوا أَنَّ الْمَلَائِكَةَ لَا يَدْخُلُونَ بَيْتًا فِيهِ كَلْبٌ؟! ثُمَّ ذَهَبَ حَتَّى دَخَلَ بَيْتًا آخَرَ فِيهِ جَمَاعَةٌ مِنَ الشِّيعَةِ يَذْكُرُونَ مَصَائِبَ حُسَيْنٍ وَيَبْكُونَ عَلَيْهِ، فَجَلَسَ فِيهِمْ حَتَّى وَضَعُوا ثِيَابَهُمْ وَضَرَبُوا صُدُورَهُمْ فِي صَفٍّ وَاحِدٍ، فَلَمَّا فَعَلُوا ذَلِكَ قَامَ الْمَنْصُورُ وَخَرَجَ وَهُوَ يَقُولُ: نُرَافِقُكُمْ فِي السُّنَّةِ وَنُفَارِقُكُمْ فِي الْبِدْعَةِ!

Translation of the Saying:

Abdullah Ibn Habib Tabari informed us and said: Mansoor entered a house where a group of Shia were remembering Hussain’s sufferings and crying for him, so he sat among them until their preacher said: I am Hussain’s dog! So when he said this, Mansoor got up and went out while saying: By God, Hussain did not come to them so that they would be dogs! Did they not know that angels do not enter a house where there is a dog in it?! Then he went to another house where a group of Shia were remembering the sufferings of Hussain and crying for him, so he sat among them until they took off their clothing and hit their chest in a single row, so when they did this, Mansoor got up and went out while saying: We will accompany you in Sunnah and we will leave you in Bid’ah!

10 . أَخْبَرَنَا عَبْدُ الْحَمِيدِ بْنُ بَخْتِيَارَ، قَالَ: سَمِعَ الْمَنْصُورُ أَنَّ رَجُلًا أَعْرَسَ بِيَوْمِ عَاشُورَاءَ، فَقَالَ: أُفٍّ أُفٍّ! أَلَا يَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا يَوْمٌ غَضِبَ اللَّهُ فِيهِ عَلَى أَهْلِ الْأَرْضِ؟! أَمَا وَاللَّهِ لَوْ قُتِلَ فِي هَذَا الْيَوْمِ ابْنُهُ مَا أَعْرَسَ فِيهِ، وَلَكِنْ قُتِلَ فِيهِ ابْنُ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ! ثُمَّ قَالَ: اجْعَلُوهُ يَوْمَ حُزْنِكُمْ، فَإِنَّ قَوْمًا مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ جَعَلُوهُ يَوْمَ فُرْحَتِهِمْ فَسَخِطَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ -يَعْنِي بَنِي أُمَيَّةَ!

Abd al-Hamid ibn Bakhtiar informed us and said: Mansoor heard that a man has held a wedding on the Day of Ashura, so he said: Uff Uff! Does he not know that this is the day when God became angry with the people of the Earth?! I swear by God, if his son had been killed on this day, he would not have held a wedding in it, but on this day, the son of the Messenger of God has been killed! Then he said: Make it the day of your sorrow; because a group before you - the Umayyads - made it their day of rejoicing, so God became angry with them!

11 . أَخْبَرَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ الدَّامْغَانِيُّ، قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ الْمَنْصُورَ عَنْ صِيَامِ يَوْمِ عَاشُورَاءَ، فَقَالَ: لَا بَأْسَ بِهِ، ثُمَّ قَالَ: لَا تَصُمْهُ إِلَّا أَنْ تَصُومَ قَبْلَهُ أَوْ بَعْدَهُ، وَلَا تَصُمْهُ مُتَيَمِّنًا بِهِ، فَإِنَّمَا تَيَمَّنَ بِهِ الْيَهُودُ وَالَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا، وَلَا بَأْسَ بِالنِّكَاحِ فِيهِ إِذَا صَادَفَهُ، وَإِنَّمَا يُكْرَهُ لِمَكَانِ الدُّفِّ.

Translation of the Saying:

Ali ibn Ismail Damghani informed us and said: I asked Mansoor about fasting on the Day of Ashura, so he said: There is no problem, then he said: Do not fast in it unless you fast before or after it and do not fast in it for luck; because only the Jews and those who did wrong looked for luck in it, and there is no problem in marrying on this day whenever it coincides with it, and it is distasted only because of Daff (meaning celebration and joy).

12 . أَخْبَرَنَا هَاشِمُ بْنُ عُبَيْدٍ الْخُجَنْدِيُّ، قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ الْعَالِمَ عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ تَعَالَى: ﴿وَذَكِّرْهُمْ بِأَيَّامِ اللَّهِ ۚ[2]، فَقَالَ: يَوْمٌ بَعَثَ اللَّهُ فِيهِ نَبِيَّهُ مِنْهَا، وَيَوْمٌ هَاجَرَ فِيهِ إِلَى الْمَدِينَةِ مِنْهَا، وَيَوْمُ بَدْرٍ مِنْهَا، وَيَوْمُ الْأَحْزَابِ مِنْهَا، وَيَوْمُ فَتْحِ مَكَّةَ مِنْهَا، وَذَكَرَ أَيَّامًا أُخْرَى، ثُمَّ قَالَ: وَيَوْمُ عَاشُورَاءَ مِنْهَا، وَفِيهِ قُتِلَ الزَّكِيُّ التَّقِيُّ الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ عَلِيٍّ عَلَى شَاطِئِ الْفُرَاتِ! قُلْتُ: مَا بَالُهُ خَرَجَ وَقَدْ نَهَاهُ عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عُمَرَ؟! قَالَ: إِنَّ عَبْدَ اللَّهِ بْنَ عُمَرَ نَهَاهُ عَنِ الْمَعْرُوفِ!

Translation of the Saying:

Hashim ibn Ubayd al-Khujandi informed us and said: I asked this scholar about the word of God Almighty who said: “And remind them of the days of God”, then he said: The day in which God raised His Prophet is one of those (days) and the day his Excellency migrated to Medina is one of those (days) and the day of Badr is one of those (days) and the day of Ahzab is one of those (days) and the day of the conquest of Mecca is one of those (days) and he mentioned some other days and then he said: And the day of Ashura is one of those (days) and on that day the pure pious Hussain ibn Ali was killed by the river Euphrates! I said: What happened to his Excellency when he raised, while Abdullah bin Umar forbade him?! He said: Abdullah bin Umar forbade him from good!

13 . أَخْبَرَنَا صَالِحُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ السَّبْزَوَارِيُّ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ الْمَنْصُورَ يَقُولُ: لَا تَزْنُوا، فَوَاللَّهِ مَا قَتَلَ النَّبِيِّينَ إِلَّا أَوْلَادُ زِنَا، وَمَا قَتَلَ الْحُسَيْنَ بْنَ عَلِيٍّ إِلَّا وَلَدُ زِنَا! ثُمَّ هَمَسَ بِحَدِيثِهِ فَقَالَ: مَا لَقِيَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ مِنَ الْكَلْبِ الْأَبْقَعِ!

Translation of the Saying:

Saleh ibn Muhammad Sabzevari informed us and said: I heard Mansoor saying: Do not commit adultery; because by God, nobody killed the prophets except the children of adultery, and nobody killed Hussain ibn Ali except the child of adultery! Then he lowered his voice and said: What Abu Abdullah saw from the black and white dog!

14 . أَخْبَرَنَا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ الْقَاسِمِ الطِّهْرَانِيُّ، قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ الْمَنْصُورَ عَنْ زِيَارَةِ قَبْرِ الْحُسَيْنِ فَقَالَ: زُرْهُ، وَسَلِّمْ عَلَيْهِ، وَسَلِ اللَّهَ حَاجَتَكَ، قُلْتُ: كَيْفَ أُسَلِّمُ عَلَيْهِ عِنْدَ قَبْرِهِ؟ قَالَ: قُلْ: السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكَ يَابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ، أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ أَقَمْتَ الصَّلَاةَ وَآتَيْتَ الزَّكَاةَ وَأَمَرْتَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَنَهَيْتَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَجَاهَدْتَ فِي اللَّهِ حَقَّ جِهَادِهِ حَتَّى أَتَاكَ الْيَقِينُ، فَلَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ قَتَلَكَ، وَلَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ أَمَرَ بِهِ، وَلَعَنَ اللَّهُ مَنْ بَلَغَهُ ذَلِكَ فَرَضِيَ بِهِ، أَنَا إِلَى اللَّهِ مِنْهُمْ بَرِيءٌ! قُلْتُ: فَأَطُوفُ بِقَبْرِهِ؟ قَالَ: لَا، وَلَا تُصَلِّ بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ، وَلَكِنْ تَنَحَّ نَاحِيَةً وَصَلِّ فِي بَعْضِ الرُّوَاقَاتِ.

Translation of the Saying:

Hassan Ibn Qasim Tehrani informed us and said: I asked Mansoor about visiting the shrine of Hussain, so he said: Visit it and greet his Excellency and ask God for your needs. I said: How can I greet his Excellency at his shrine? He said: Say: Peace be upon you, O Aba Abdullah, peace be upon you, son of the Messenger of God, I bear witness you held the prayer and paid Zakat and promote good and demote evil and fought in the way of God appropriately until death came to you, so may God curse the one who killed you and may God curse the one who commanded it and may God curse the one who became aware of it and was satisfied with it, I hate them toward God! I said: Shall I do Tawaf around his shrine? He said: No, and do not pray in front of it, but go aside and pray in some porches.
