Translation of the saying:
One of our companions informed us, he said: One day ISIS, Taliban, Hizb ut-Tahrir, the followers of Wilayat al-Faqih, and other Islamic countries and groups were mentioned in the presence of Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, so he said something whose meaning is as follows:
“Each one of them shouts the slogan of Islamism and claims that he seeks to establish Islam, ‘and God will certainly make it known those who are telling the truth and will certainly make it known those who are liars.’ Know that my invitation toward Mahdi is a test for them; because if they do not accept it, they reveal their hypocrisy and announce that they are not Muslims, nor do they seek to establish Islam, but rather they are only after power and dream of nothing but domination; like the tyrants who were before them and spent the lives and wealth of Muslims on their pleasure on the earth until death fell on them, like an eagle that falls on a goat, grabbed them from above, and cast them into the middle of Hell, while if they accept my invitation toward Mahdi and unite with me to bring him to rule, the ground for his rule will be prepared and their purpose will be realized in the best possible way; of course, if their purpose is to establish Islam on the earth; because if their purpose is something else, then the curse of God and the curse of His servants will follow them and reach them sooner or later and scatter them around the earth, and then there will be no gatherer for them!
Do Muslims, who call themselves fighters in the way of God and claim that they are the Muhajirin and the Ansar, not know that the best jihad is jihad alongside Mahdi, the best migration is migration toward Mahdi, and the best help is help for Mahdi?! Then why do they not go to a man - and he pointed to himself - who, without any pretensions or expectations, invites them toward Mahdi and enables them to reach him while he gives them proof from the Book of God and the mutawatir Sunnah of His Prophet, calls them to rationality, forbids them from ignorance, imitation, and following passions, and takes responsibility for whatever he says and is the guarantor of it?! What keeps them from answering him, and who distracts them from rushing to him?! Is it not appropriate that they should rush to him by crawling on snow and gather together in his presence from far and near lands to rise with him to help Mahdi?! While he will lead them to Mahdi with his guidance, and Mahdi will lead them to the best wishes with his rule; because he will implement the rulings of God among them and bring absolute justice into the backs of their houses and their stockyards, but rather he will take them to the promised lands that milk and honey flow in them, their soil is saffron, and their pebbles are diamonds and pearls. Woe to those who leave Mahdi to join the misguided; because they prefer darkness to light, blindness to sight, and ignorance to knowledge, like those who sold Yusuf for a low price, a few dirhams. Is there not a knowledgeable man under the sky or a wise woman on the earth to hear the call of Mansoor and rise to help Mahdi?! May evil befall the world in which there are supporters for any bear and helpers for any demon, but there is no supporter for Mahdi and no helper for the inviter toward him! Do those who help the inviter toward himself with their lives and wealth, but abandon the inviter toward Mahdi not believe in the Day of Judgment?! The Day when the earth vomits their bodies so that they will stand on one leg in God’s court of justice and answer His questions about this great betrayal; because they ignored the inviter toward God and answered the inviter toward Iblis, and by doing so disturbed the law of the world and severed the thread of nature. So their punishment in the world became the domination of tyrants so that they would cut off the heads of their men and cast lots for their women, and in the Hereafter a burning fire that melts the stone and takes their oil.”
