2) What is the difference between the Message and Wilaya? In AlMutashabihat (Allegories) you’ve mentioned O Master that the first Mahdi has two ranks what does that mean?
Imam Ahmed Alhasan a.s. said:
Message: meaning that he is sent with religion and to firmly place the new ideology. As for the Wilaya (guardianship) it is to firmly place the supremacy of Allah and to follow (the guardianship) of the successors of Allah.
If we return to the beginning of Islam, the one who came with the Message was Muhammad (saw) and so he withstood the issue of preaching the new religion and firmly placing the ideology for the new religion. Meaning he withstood the Message and preaching it and firmly placing it and he indicates towards the guardianship (Wilaya) and speaks about it but the focus was on the Message that he came with and correcting the corrupt ideologies and spreading the correct ideology that he came with. As for the guardianship (Wilaya) and the supremacy of Allah and firmly placing it, the one who withstood its burdens was Imam Ali pbuh and Fatima pbuh and the Imams pbut after them.
The Wilaya (guardianship) that Muhammad(saw) came with is in his message, but both Ali pbuh and Fatima pbuh were obligated to firmly place it. And the Messenger Muhammad pbuhap that came with the Islamic Message and firmly placed it is in reality an Imam and Imam Ali pbuh that firmly placed the guardianship is also a messenger from Muhammad pbuhap and I have clarified this in the Book The Sealing Prophecy.
As for the first Mahdi he will bear these two matters all together. The first is the message and correcting the corrupt ideologies and firmly placing the ideology about the Mahdis. The second is to firmly place the guardianship (Wilaya) and supremacy of Allah that all the people deviated from. And now from what you know, there is no one speaking about the real guardianship , the Marjae’ (scholars that people imitate) the misguiding ones used to say by their tongues but today they’ve connived at the guardianship (Wilaya) and the supremacy of Allah even through their words while they are promoting the supremacy of people and the Shura (consensus) and the elections. As for their practical methodology, it is to contradict the guardianship. What is not hidden today is their unanimity for the method of the Shura (consensus) and the elections and them entering in it through their imitators (Muqalideen) who’ve formed parties and groups and each party rejoices in that which is with itself.
And within the first Mahdi gathers the roles of Muhammad pbuhap and the role of Ali pbuh, meaning the Message and Guardianship and that is why you wrote from AlMutashabihat what you copied.
