Saying
 

1 . أَخْبَرَنَا هَاشِمُ بْنُ عُبَيْدٍ الْخُجَنْدِيُّ، قَالَ: كُنَّا عِنْدَ الْمَنْصُورِ الْهَاشِمِيِّ الْخُرَاسَانِيِّ، فَجَرَى ذِكْرُ الشِّيعَةِ، فَقَالَ: لَيْسَ شِيعَةُ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ مَنْ يَسُبُّ أَبَا بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرَ، وَلَكِنَّ شِيعَةَ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ مَنْ إِذَا دُعِيَ إِلَى رَجُلَيْنِ أَحَدُهُمَا مِنْهُمْ وَالْآخَرُ مِنْ غَيْرِهِمْ، مَالَ إِلَى الَّذِي هُوَ مِنْهُمْ وَتَرَكَ الْآخَرَ، ثُمَّ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ: «اللَّهُمَّ أَهْلُ بَيْتِي أَحَقُّ».

Translation of the saying:

Hashim ibn Ubayd al-Khujandi informed us, he said: We were with Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, then the Shias were mentioned, so he said: “A Shia of the Ahl al-Bayt is not one who reviles Abu Bakr and Umar, but a Shia of the Ahl al-Bayt is one who, whenever he is invited toward two men that one of them is from the Ahl al-Bayt and the other is from other than them, turns to the one who is from them and leaves the other.” Then he said: “The Messenger of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him and his family, said: ‘O God! My Ahl al-Bayt are the worthiest.’[1]

2 . أَخْبَرَنَا صَالِحُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ السَّبْزَوَارِيُّ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ الْمَنْصُورَ يَقُولُ: مَنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ مِنْ شِيعَةِ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ فَقَدْ هَلَكَ، قُلْتُ: فَإِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ! قَالَ: لَعَلَّكَ تَرَى أَنَّ شِيعَةَ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ هَؤُلَاءِ الْغَوْغَاءُ؟! لَا وَاللَّهِ، قَدْ عَظَّمَ اللَّهُ قَدْرَ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ أَنْ يَكُونَ هَؤُلَاءِ شِيعَتَهُمْ، وَلَكِنَّ شِيعَةَ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ مَنْ أَعَانَهُمْ عَلَى عَدُوِّهِمْ.

Translation of the saying:

Salih ibn Muhammad al-Sabzawari informed us, he said: I heard Mansoor say: “Whoever is not one the Shias of the Ahl al-Bayt has perished.” I said: “Then we belong to God and to Him we shall return.” He said: “Perhaps you think the Shias of the Ahl al-Bayt are these rabble-rousers?! No, I swear to God, God has made the stature of the Ahl al-Bayt greater than they would be their Shias, but a Shia of the Ahl al-Bayt is one who helps them against their enemies.”

3 . أَخْبَرَنَا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ الْقَاسِمِ الطِّهْرَانِيُّ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ الْمَنْصُورَ يَقُولُ: مَنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ مِنْ شِيعَةِ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ فَلَيْسَ بِمُؤْمِنٍ، قُلْتُ: الشِّيعَةُ؟! وَهَلْ لَقِيتَ مِنْ أَحَدٍ مَا لَقِيتَ مِنَ الشِّيعَةِ؟! فَقَالَ: لَعَلَّكَ تَرَى أَنِّي أُرِيدُ هَؤُلَاءِ السَّفْلَةَ؟! لَا وَاللَّهِ، وَهَلْ هَؤُلَاءِ السَّفْلَةُ إِلَّا قَطِيعٌ مِنَ الثَّعَالِبِ؟! إِنَّمَا شِيعَةُ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ مَنْ إِذَا صَارَ النَّاسُ حِزْبَيْنِ دَخَلَ فِي حِزْبِ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ.

Translation of the saying:

Hasan ibn Qasim al-Tehrani informed us, he said: I heard Mansoor say: “Whoever is not one the Shias of the Ahl al-Bayt is not a believer.” I said: “The Shias?! And have you faced from anyone what you have faced from the Shias?!” So he said: “Perhaps you think I mean these lowly people?! No, I swear to God, and are these lowly people but a flock of foxes?! Indeed, a Shia of the Ahl al-Bayt is one who joins the party of the Ahl al-Bayt when people become two parties.”

4 . أَخْبَرَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ الدَّامْغَانِيُّ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ الْمَنْصُورَ يَقُولُ: لَيْسَ شِيعَةُ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ مَنْ يَمْسَحُ رِجْلَيْهِ فِي الْوُضُوءِ وَيُرْسِلُ يَدَيْهِ فِي الصَّلَاةِ، وَلَكِنَّ شِيعَةَ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ مَنْ إِذَا دُعِيَ إِلَى إِمَامٍ عَادِلٍ مِنْهُمْ لِيَنْصُرَهُ أَجَابَ، وَإِنْ غَسَلَ رِجْلَيْهِ فِي الْوُضُوءِ وَقَبَضَ يَدَيْهِ فِي الصَّلَاةِ، قُلْتُ: أَلَيْسَ يَعْصِي أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ فِيهِمَا؟! فَنَظَرَ إِلَيَّ نَظَرَ مُغْضَبٍ، فَقَالَ: يُطِيعُهُمْ فِي أَكْبَرَ مِنْهُمَا! أَلَا يَعْصِيهِمْ هَؤُلَاءِ الْمُخْتَالُونَ فِي شَيْءٍ -يَعْنِي الشِّيعَةَ؟! وَاللَّهِ لَوَدَدْتُ أَنْ يَكُونَ فِيهِمْ عَشَرَةُ رِجَالٍ يَعْرِفُونَ مَا كَانَ عَلَيْهِ أَهْلُ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطِيعُونَهُمْ! يَمْسَحُونَ أَرْجُلَهُمْ فِي الْوُضُوءِ وَيُرْسِلُونَ أَيْدِيَهُمْ فِي الصَّلَاةِ، ثُمَّ إِذَا دُعُوا إِلَى إِمَامٍ عَادِلٍ مِنْهُمْ لِيَنْصُرُوهُ إِذَا هُمْ يَنْكُصُونَ! أَيَطْمَعُونَ أَنْ يَدْخُلُوا الْجَنَّةَ بِأَنَّهُمْ يَتَمَتَّعُونَ بِالنِّسَاءِ؟! لَا وَاللَّهِ، لَيْسَ هَؤُلَاءِ شِيعَةَ أَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ!

Translation of the saying:

Ali ibn Isma‘il al-Damghani informed us, he said: I heard Mansoor say: “A Shia of the Ahl al-Bayt is not one who wipes his feet in wudu and puts his hands by his sides in prayer, but a Shia of the Ahl al-Bayt is one who, when he is invited toward a just Imam from among them to help him, accepts it, even if he washes his feet in wudu and places one hand on the other in prayer.” I said: “Is it not that he disobeys the Ahl al-Bayt in them?!” So he looked at me with anger and said: “He obeys them in something greater than them! Do these conceited people -i.e., the Shias- not disobey them in anything?! I swear to God, I wish there were ten men among them who knew what the Ahl al-Bayt were upon and obeyed them! They wipe their feet in wudu and put their hands by their sides in prayer, then, when they are invited toward a just Imam from among them to help him, they turn away! Do they hope to enter Heaven because they do temporary marriage?! No, I swear to God, these are not the Shias of the Ahl al-Bayt!”[2]

5 . أَخْبَرَنَا ذَاكِرُ بْنُ مَعْرُوفٍ، قَالَ: قُلْتُ لِلْمَنْصُورِ: إِنَّا نُكَلِّمُ الشِّيعَةَ وَالسُّنَّةَ وَالسَّلَفِيَّةَ وَالصُّوفِيَّةَ وَالْقُرْآنِيَّةَ وَكُلَّ صِنْفٍ مِنْ أَصْنَافِ النَّاسِ، وَلَا نَجِدُ فِيهِمْ أَضْعَفَ عَقْلًا، وَلَا أَقَلَّ أَدَبًا، وَلَا أَسْوَأَ خُلْقًا، وَلَا أَكْثَرَ كِذْبًا، وَلَا أَكْبَرَ بُهْتَانًا، وَلَا أَشَدَّ عَدَاوَةً لَكَ وَمَوَدَّةً لِلظَّالِمِينَ مِنَ الشِّيعَةِ! فَنَكَسَ الْمَنْصُورُ رَأْسَهُ وَظَهَرَ فِي وَجْهِهِ حُزْنٌ عَظِيمٌ، فَقُلْتُ فِي نَفْسِي: لَيُبْدِيَنَّ الْيَوْمَ مِنْ أَمْرِ الشِّيعَةِ مَا كَانَ يَخْفَى! فَقَالَ: كَانَ فِي الشِّيعَةِ مَحَاسِنُ كَثِيرَةٌ مَا دَامَ عَلِيٌّ فِيهِمْ، فَلَمَّا قُتِلَ -رَحِمَهُ اللَّهُ- وَهَنُوا، وَضَعُفُوا، وَاسْتَكَانُوا، وَغَرَّتْهُمُ الْأَمَانِيُّ، وَشَاعَ فِيهِمُ الْفُسُوقُ، حَتَّى لَمْ يَبْقَ مِنْ مَحَاسِنِهِمْ إِلَّا اثْنَانِ، وَكَانَا يُحَبِّبَانِهِمْ إِلَيْنَا مَعَ كَثْرَةِ قَبَائِحِهِمْ، وَهُمَا إِخْلَاصُ الْوِلَايَةِ لِأَهْلِ الْبَيْتِ، وَمُدَارَاةُ النَّاسِ بِالْكِتْمَانِ، فَكُنَّا نَصْبِرُ عَلَى قَبَائِحِهِمْ لِأَجْلِهِمَا وَنَقُولُ يَغْفِرُ اللَّهُ لَهُمْ، فَلَمَّا وَقَعَتِ الْغَيْبَةُ وَطَالَتِ الْفَتْرَةُ، ذَهَبَتْ مَحَاسِنُهُمْ كُلُّهَا، وَبَقِيَتْ قَبَائِحُهُمْ! فَصَارُوا يَتَّخِذُونَ الْوَلَائِجَ، وَيَهْتِكُونَ السُّتُورَ، وَيَقْتَحِمُونَ الْبِدَعَ وَالْآثَامَ! فَهُمُ الْيَوْمَ شَرٌّ لَا خَيْرَ فِيهِ! فَقَاتَلَ اللَّهُ طَائِفَةً خَرَجُوا مِنَ النُّورِ إِلَى الظُّلُمَاتِ، وَسَقَطُوا عَلَى الْأَرْضِ مِنْ فَوْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ!

Translation of the saying:

Zakir ibn Ma‘roof informed us, he said: I said to Mansoor: “We talk to the Shias, the Sunnis, the Salafis, the Sufis, the Quranists, and every type of people, but among them, we do not find anyone who has a weaker intellect, less politeness, worse manner, more lies, greater slander, and more severe hostility toward you and affection for oppressors than the Shias!” So Mansoor lowered his head, and a great sadness appeared on his face. Then I said to myself: “Today he will reveal something about the Shias that has been hidden so far!” Then he said: “There were many virtues in the Shias as long as Ali was among them, so when he -may God have mercy on him- was killed, they lost heart, became weak, and gave in, their desires deceived them and sins spread among them until nothing was left of their virtues but two things, and those two things endeared them to us despite their many villainous deeds, and those two things were making guardianship exclusive to the Ahl al-Bayt and compromising with people through concealment. So we used to be patient with their villainous deeds because of these two things and would say, ‘May God forgive them.’ Then, when the absence[3] took place and the period[4] was prolonged, all their virtues were gone and their villainous deeds remained! So they began to choose various leaders, commit indecencies, and indulge in innovations and sins! So today they are evil in which there is no good! May God kill the group that went out of light into darkness and fell on the earth from above the heavens!

6 . أَخْبَرَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ حَبِيبٍ الطَّبَرِيُّ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ الْمَنْصُورَ يَقُولُ: إِنَّ هَؤُلَاءِ الْأَفَاعِي يَزْعُمُونَ أَنَّهُمْ مِنْ شِيعَةِ عَلِيٍّ وَأَنِّي لَسْتُ مِنْ شِيعَتِهِ! فَقَدْ جَاؤُوا ظُلْمًا وَزُورًا! إِنَّمَا شِيعَةُ عَلِيٍّ مَنْ يَحْذُو حَذْوَهُ وَيَتَخَلَّقُ بِأَخْلَاقِهِ، وَكَانَ عَلِيٌّ لَا يَكْذِبُ، وَلَا يَبْهَتُ، وَلَا يَقْذِفُ، وَلَا يَسُبُّ، وَلَا يُثِيرُ الْفِتْنَةَ، وَلَا يُغْرِي الْعَدَاوَةَ بَيْنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ، وَلَا يَلْعَنُ أَبَا بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرَ وَعُثْمَانَ، وَلَا يَرْمِي عَائِشَةَ بِالْقَبِيحِ، وَلَا يُكَفِّرُ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ وَالْأَنْصَارَ، وَلَا يَنْسِبُ أَهْلَ بَدْرٍ إِلَى النِّفَاقِ، وَلَا يَرْضَى بِالْغُلُوِّ فِي نَفْسِهِ، وَلَا يَقُولُ إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ الْغَيْبَ، وَلَا يَقُولُ أَنَّ الْخَلْقَ مُفَوَّضٌ إِلَيَّ أَتَصَرَّفُ فِيهِ بِمَا أَشَاءُ، وَلَا يَلْطِمُ نَفْسَهُ عِنْدَ مُصِيبَةِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ أَوْ مُصِيبَةِ فَاطِمَةَ عَلَيْهَا السَّلَامُ، وَلَا يَدْعُوهُمَا بِالْغَيْبِ لِيَقْضِيَا حَوَائِجَهُ، وَلَا يَأْمُرُ بِتَقْلِيدِ النَّاسِ، وَلَا يَجْعَلُ لَهُمْ وِلَايَةً كَوِلَايَةِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ، وَلَا يَقُولُ أَنَّ حِفْظَ مُلْكِهِ أَوْلَى مِنْ حِفْظِ الْإِسْلَامِ، بَلْ تَرَكَ الْمُلْكَ لِيَحْفَظَ الْإِسْلَامَ، وَلَا يَسْتَحِلُّ مُخَالَفَةَ الْقُرْآنِ وَالسُّنَّةِ لِمَصْلَحَةِ دُنْيَاهُ، وَلَا يَرْضَى بِالذُّلِّ، وَلَا يَسْتَعِينُ بِالْكَافِرِينَ، وَلَا يُعِينُ الظَّالِمِينَ عَلَى ظُلْمِهِمْ، وَلَا يُصَانِعُهُمْ طَمَعًا فِي دُنْيَاهُمْ أَوْ خَوْفًا مِنْ قَلِيلِ الْأَذَى يُسَمِّي ذَلِكَ تَقِيَّةً، وَلَا يَأْخُذُ بِخَبَرٍ يَرْوِيهِ وَاحِدٌ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِلَّا أَنْ يَسْتَحْلِفَهُ فَيَحْلِفَ لَهُ، وَلَا يَفْعَلُ كَثِيرًا غَيْرَ ذَلِكَ مِمَّا يَفْعَلُ هَؤُلَاءِ وَأَنَا خِلْوٌ مِنْ ذَلِكَ كُلِّهِ، فَلْيَرْجِعُوا الْآنَ إِلَى أَنْفُسِهِمْ وَلْيَقْضُوا مَنْ أَشْبَهُنَا بِعَلِيٍّ؟! هُمْ أَمْ أَنَا؟! فَإِنْ شَهِدَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَاعْتَرَفَتْ ضَمَائِرُهُمْ بِأَنِّي أَشْبَهُ مِنْهُمْ بِعَلِيٍّ، فَلْيَتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَلْيَكُفُّوا عَنْ سَبِّي وَظُلْمِي وَعَدَاوَتِي وَتَحْرِيضِ النَّاسِ عَلَيَّ وَأَخْذِ أَصْحَابِي وَذَوِي مَوَدَّتِي وَحَبْسِهِمْ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ، فَإِنِّي أَدْعُوهُمْ إِلَى إِمَامٍ عَادِلٍ مِنْ ذُرِّيَّةِ عَلِيٍّ، وَهُمْ أَوْلَى النَّاسِ بِإِجَابَةِ دَعْوَتِي وَالْمُسَارَعَةِ فِي نُصْرَتِي إِنْ كَانُوا صَادِقِينَ، وَلَكِنَّهُمْ مَجْبُولُونَ عَلَى الْكِذْبِ وَالتَّعَصُّبِ وَالْكِبْرِ، وَيُشَاقُّونَنِي ﴿حَسَدًا مِنْ عِنْدِ أَنْفُسِهِمْ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الْحَقُّ ۖ فَاعْفُوا وَاصْفَحُوا حَتَّى يَأْتِيَ اللَّهُ بِأَمْرِهِ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ[5].

Translation of the saying:

Abdullah ibn Habib al-Tabari informed us, he said: I heard Mansoor say: “These snakes claim that they are from the Shias of Ali and I am not one of the Shias of Ali! Truly, they have turned to oppression and falsehood! Indeed, a Shia of Ali is one who follows his example and is imbued with his morals, and indeed, Ali would not tell lies nor slander nor accuse nor revile nor provoke fitnah nor arouse hostility among Muslims nor curse Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthman nor accuse Aisha of being immoral nor charge the Muhajirin and the Ansar with disbelief nor consider the people of Badr as hypocrites nor be satisfied with exaggeration about himself nor say, ‘I have knowledge of the unseen,’ nor say, ‘Created beings have been entrusted to me, and I can possess them as I please,’[6] nor strike himself in the demise of the Prophet, peace and blessings of God be upon him and his family, or the demise of Fatimah, peace be upon her,[7] nor call upon them in their absence to fulfill his needs nor command imitating people nor set guardianship like that of the Prophet, peace and blessings of God be upon him and his family, for them[8] nor say that preserving his dominion is worthier than preserving Islam, but rather would leave the dominion to preserve Islam, nor consider it lawful to oppose the Quran and the Sunnah for the benefit of his world nor accept ignominy nor seek the help of disbelievers nor help oppressors in their oppression nor get along with them out of greed for their world or fear of little harm, which he would call it taqiyyah, nor act on a report narrated by one person from the Prophet, peace and blessings of God be upon him and his family, unless he would make him swear and he would swear for him, nor do many other things that they do, and I am free of all of that. So now they shall refer to themselves and judge, which one of us is more like Ali?! They or me?! So if their hearts bear witness and their consciences admit that I am more like Ali than them, they shall fear God and stop reviling me, oppressing me, being hostile toward me, provoking people against me, arresting and imprisoning my companions and those who love me unrightfully; because I invite them toward a just Imam from the offspring of Ali[9], and they are the most deserving of people to accept my invitation and rush to help me if they are truthful, but they are naturally inclined to lies, fanaticism, and arrogance and oppose me ‘out of envy in their selves after the truth became clear to them, so forgive and overlook until God brings His command. Indeed, God has power over all things.’

7 . أَخْبَرَنَا عِيسَى بْنُ عَبْدِ الْحَمِيدِ الْجُوزَجَانِيُّ، قَالَ: قُلْتُ لِلْمَنْصُورِ: لَا أَرَى مَعَكَ مِنَ الشِّيعَةِ إِلَّا كُلَّ ضَعِيفٍ وَضَعِيفَةٍ! فَأَيْنَ فُضَلَاؤُهَا وَشُجْعَانُهَا؟! فَقَالَ: يَا أَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ! إِنَّ اللُّصُوصَ بِإِيرَانَ سَبَقُونِي إِلَى الشِّيعَةِ، فَنَهَبُوا كُنُوزَهَا وَأَفْسَدُوا مَعَادِنَهَا، وَلَمْ يَتْرُكُوا لِي إِلَّا الْحَجَرَ وَالْمَدَرَ! أَلَا وَاللَّهِ لَئِنْ وَجَدْتُ عَلَيْهِمْ أَعْوَانًا لَكَانَ لَهُمْ مِنِّي يَوْمٌ عَسِيرٌ!

Translation of the saying:

Isa ibn Abd al-Hamid al-Jowzjani informed us, he said: I said to Mansoor: “I see with you nothing from the Shia except for weak men and women! So where are its virtuous and brave ones?!” So he said: “O Aba Muhammad! The thieves in Iran got hold of the Shia before me, so they plundered its treasures, destroyed its mines, and left me nothing but stones and clods! Know that, I swear to God, if I find helpers against them, they will have a hard day from me!”

8 . أَخْبَرَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ الطَّالَقَانِيُّ، قَالَ: دَخَلَ عَلَى الْمَنْصُورِ جَمَاعَةٌ مِنَ الشِّيعَةِ، فَسَأَلُوهُ عَنْ أَشْيَاءَ فَأَجَابَهُمْ فِيهَا بِالْكِتَابِ وَالسُّنَّةِ، فَرَدُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَقَالُوا: لَيْسَ هَذَا مِنْ مَذْهَبِنَا! فَغَضِبَ الْمَنْصُورُ غَضَبًا شَدِيدًا، فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: لَعَلَّكُمْ تَحْسَبُونَ أَنَّكُمْ مِنْ شِيعَةِ عَلِيٍّ؟! قَالُوا: نَعَمْ، فَقَالَ: لَيْسَ كَمَا تَحْسَبُونَ، أَمَا وَاللَّهِ لَوْ كَانَ عَلِيٌّ فِيكُمْ لَقَتَلَ كَثِيرًا مِنْكُمْ كَمَا قَتَلَ إِخْوَانَكُمْ يَوْمَ الْجَمَلِ وَالنَّهْرَوَانِ! ثُمَّ قَالَ: لَعَلَّكُمْ تَحْسَبُونَ أَنِّي لَسْتُ مِنْ شِيعَةِ عَلِيٍّ؟! قَالُوا: نَعَمْ، فَقَالَ: كَذَبْتُمْ، أَنَا مِنْ شِيعَتِهِ وَلَيْسَ لَهُ الْيَوْمَ شِيعَةٌ غَيْرِي وَغَيْرَ أَصْحَابِي! قَالُوا: أَلَسْنَا نُحِبُّهُ؟! قَالَ: لَوْ كُنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَهُ لَاتَّبَعْتُمُوهُ! قَالُوا: إِنَّا وَاللَّهِ لَنُحِبُّهُ! قَالَ: إِذًا تُحِبُّونَ رَجُلًا لَا تَعْرِفُونَهُ وَلَوْ أَنَّكُمْ عَرَفْتُمُوهُ لَأَبْغَضْتُمُوهُ كَمَا أَبْغَضَهُ الَّذِينَ لَمْ يَتَّبِعُوهُ مِثْلَكُمْ، فَقَتَّلَهُمْ تَقْتِيلًا! فَأَنْكَرُوا قَوْلَهُ وَاسْتَعْظَمُوهُ، فَقَالَ: أَلَيْسَ النَّصَارَى يُحِبُّونَ الْمَسِيحَ وَهُمْ لَا يَتَّبِعُونَهُ؟! كَذِلَكَ أَنْتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ عَلِيًّا وَأَنْتُمْ لَا تَتَّبِعُونَهُ! أَلَا يَوْمَ يَرْجِعُ الْمَسِيحُ إِلَى الدُّنْيَا يُقَتِّلُ النَّصَارَى تَقْتِيلًا! فَسَكَتَ الْجَمَاعَةُ كَأَنَّهُمْ أُلْقِمُوا حَجَرًا وَظَنَّ الْمَنْصُورُ أَنَّهُمْ خَافُوا لِقَوْلِهِ وَرَجَعُوا إِلَى أَنْفُسِهِمْ، فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: تُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ أَيُّهَا الْجَاهِلُونَ! فَوَاللَّهِ لَا أَرَى فِيكُمْ مِنْ تَشَيُّعِ عَلِيٍّ إِلَّا اسْمَهُ، وَلَوْ بَقِيتُمْ عَلَى هَذَا لَكُنْتُمْ أَهْوَنَ النَّاسِ عَلَى الْمَهْدِيِّ! ثُمَّ قَامَ عَنْهُمْ حَتَّى إِذَا بَلَغَ الْبَابَ، أَقْبَلَ بِوَجْهِهِ إِلَيْهِمْ وَقَالَ: كَذَبَ مَنْ زَعَمَ أَنَّهُ مِنْ شِيعَةِ عَلِيٍّ وَهُوَ يَتَشَيَّعُ لِغَيْرِ الْمَهْدِيِّ!

Translation of the saying:

Ahmad ibn Abd al-Rahman al-Taloqani informed us, he said: A group of the Shias came to Mansoor and asked him about some matters, so he answered them with the Quran and the Sunnah, but they rejected his answer and said: “This is not from our madhhab!” So Mansoor became very angry and said to them: “Perhaps you assume you are from the Shias of Ali?!” They said: “Yes.” So he said: “It is not as you assume. Indeed, I swear to God, if Ali had been among you, he would have killed many of you, as he killed your brothers on the days of Jamal and Nahrwan!” Then he said: “Perhaps you assume I am not one of the Shias of Ali?!” They said: “Yes.” So he said: “You lied, I am one of his Shias, and today there is no Shia for him other than me and my companions!” They said: “Is it not that we love him?!” He said: “If you loved him, you would follow him!” They said: “We swear to God, we love him!” He said: “If so, then you love a man you do not know, and if you knew him, you would hate him, as those like you who did not follow him hated him, so he killed them relentlessly!” Then they denied his words and considered them great, so he said: “Is it not that Christians love Christ while they do not follow him?! You too love Ali while you do not follow him! Know that the day when Christ returns to the world, he will kill Christians relentlessly!” Then the group fell silent as if a stone were put in their mouths, and Mansoor thought that they were scared by his words and came to their senses, so he said to them: “Turn to God in repentance, you ignorant ones! Because I swear to God, I see nothing of Ali’s Shiism in you but its name, and if you remain like this, you will be the most worthless people to the Mahdi!” Then he got up from among them until he reached the door, then he turned toward them and said: “He who claims that he is one of the Shias of Ali while he sides with anyone other than the Mahdi is lying!”

9 . أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الشِّيرَازِيُّ، قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ الْمَنْصُورَ عَنْ شَيْءٍ مِنْ سِيرَةِ الْمَهْدِيِّ، فَقَالَ لِي: مَا يَقُولُ هَؤُلَاءِ الطَّيَّارَةُ عِنْدَكُمْ؟ قُلْتُ: وَمَا الطَّيَّارَةُ؟! قَالَ: الشِّيعَةُ، قُلْتُ: يَقُولُونَ إِذَا قَامَ الْمَهْدِيُّ قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا إِلَّا الشِّيعَةَ! فَقَالَ: لَيْسَ كَمَا يَقُولُونَ، وَلَكِنْ إِذَا قَامَ الْمَهْدِيُّ بَدَأَ بِكَذَّابِي الشِّيعَةِ فَقَتَلَهُمْ!

Translation of the saying:

Muhammad ibn Ibrahim al-Shirazi informed us, he said: I asked Mansoor about something from the Mahdi’s manner, so he said: “What do these fliers with you say?”[10] I said: “Who are the fliers?!” He said: “The Shias.” I said: “They say that when the Mahdi rises, he will kill all people except for the Shias!” He said: “It is not as they say, but when the Mahdi rises, he will start with the Shia liars, so he will kill them!”

10 . أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ الْهَرَوِيُّ، قَالَ: دَخَلْتُ عَلَى الْمَنْصُورِ مَسَاءَ يَوْمٍ، فَسَأَلْتُهُ عَنِ الْمَهْدِيِّ كَيْفَ أَمْسَى؟ فَقَالَ: أَلَا وَاللَّهِ لَقَدْ أَمْسَى وَمَا أَحَدٌ أَعْدَى لَهُ مِمَّنْ يَنْتَحِلُ مَوَدَّتَهُ! ثُمَّ قَالَ: إِنَّ مِنَ الْمُتَشَيِّعِينَ لَمَنْ هُوَ شَرٌّ مِنَ الْيَهُودِ وَالنَّصَارَى وَالْمَجُوسِ وَالَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوا، قُلْتُ: وَالَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوا؟! قَالَ: نَعَمْ وَاللَّهِ، وَهُمُ الَّذِينَ يَسُبُّونَ الْمَهْدِيَّ! قُلْتُ: سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ! وَمَنْ يَسُبُّ مِنْهُمُ الْمَهْدِيَّ؟! قَالَ: الَّذِينَ يَسُبُّونَنِي وَهُمْ يَعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي أَدْعُوهُمْ إِلَى الْمَهْدِيِّ، فَيَسُبُّونَ بِذَلِكَ الْمَهْدِيَّ.

Translation of the saying:

Muhammad ibn Abd al-Rahman al-Harawi informed us, he said: I came to Mansoor on the evening of one day, then I asked him about the Mahdi, “How has he reached the evening?” So he said: “Know that, I swear to God, he has reached the evening while no one is more hostile toward him than one who attributes affection for him to himself!” Then he said: “Indeed, among those who claim to be the Shias there are some who are more evil than Jews, Christians, Magians, and polytheists.” I said: “And polytheists?!” He said: “Yes, I swear to God, and they are those who revile the Mahdi!” I said: “Glory be to God! Who among them reviles the Mahdi?!” He said: “Those who revile me while they know that I invite them toward the Mahdi, so they revile the Mahdi by doing so.”

11 . 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 ibn Muhammad al-Balkhi informed us, he said: We were on a way with Mansoor, then some Shia men passed us while striking their chests and backs and saying: “Here I am, O Husain! Here I am, O Husain!” Then he turned toward us and said: “Know that Husain disowns them, as Ja‘far ibn Muhammad disowned them!” We said: “Did Ja‘far ibn Muhammad disown them?!” He said: “Yes, he was informed that some men from the people of Kufa were saying: ‘Here I am, O Ja‘far ibn Muhammad! Here I am, O Ja‘far ibn Muhammad!’ So he disowned them and said: ‘The Talbiyah of the Prophets was not like this! They would say: Here I am, O God! Here I am. You have no partner!’” Then Mansoor said: “Know that, I swear to God, were it not for these lowly ones, people would have entered upon this matter[11] in droves, but they changed it and made it ugly and hateful!”

12 . أَخْبَرَنَا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ الْقَاسِمِ الطِّهْرَانِيُّ، قَالَ: جَاءَ إِلَى الْمَنْصُورِ رِجَالٌ مِنَ الشِّيعَةِ، فَقَالَ لَهُمْ: مَا جَاءَ بِكُمْ؟ قَالُوا: جِئْنَا لِنُنَاظِرَكَ! فَقَالَ: إِنِّي لَا أُنَاظِرُ غَيْرَ عُلَمَائِكُمْ، قَالُوا: نَحْنُ مِنَ الْعُلَمَاءِ، فَقَالَ: أَتَرَوْنَ أَنِّي لَا أَعْرِفُ عُلَمَاءَكُمْ مِنْ جُهَّالِكُمْ؟! مَنِ اعْتَادَ الْجَمْعَ بَيْنَ الصَّلَاتَيْنِ فَهُوَ مِنْ جُهَّالِكُمْ، أَفِيكُمْ رَجُلٌ يُفَرِّقُ؟ قَالُوا: لَا، قَالَ: فَاذْهَبُوا، فَإِنِّي لَا أُنَاظِرُ غَيْرَ عُلَمَائِكُمْ!

Translation of the saying:

Hasan ibn Qasim al-Tehrani informed us, he said: Some men from the Shias came to Mansoor, so he said to them: “What brings you here?” They said: “We have come to debate with you!” So he said: “I do not debate with anyone other than your scholars.” They said: “We are from the scholars.” So he said: “Do you think that I do not know your scholars from your ignorant ones?! Whoever is addicted to combining two prayers is one of your ignorant ones, so is there anyone among you who performs them separately?” They said: “No.” He said: “Then leave, for I do not debate with anyone other than your scholars!”

Explanation of the saying:

These profound and important sayings, with their unique eloquence and amazing frankness, show the great difference between the true Shias and the false Shias, expose the false Shiism that creates lowly people and trains foxes and snakes, and destroy its arrogance in a way that it will not be restored until the Day of Judgment!

So peace and mercy of God be upon Mansoor Hashemi Khorasani, this shining light, who removes the darkness of ignorance and misguidance, unmasks hypocrites and deceivers, and prepares the ground for the advent of the Mahdi.
