For those "Brothers" who make exagerrated claims on behalf of the late

discourse regarding Hazrat-i-Amir:
If Khomeini himself acknowledged that his descriptive and explanatory
powers fail him in giving an adequate explanation for a single reality
attributable to Asad'uLlah (as), this convincingly shows Khomeini did
not himself believe or endorse the high titles and designations given
to him by his partisans such as "Imam" (with a capital I). In fact he
would agree with me and my fatwa.
You people need to ponder on what Ayatollah Khomeini himself is saying
here and draw the relevent conclusions and return to the *real*
understanding of the true wilaya, i.e. the love (hubb) of the Ahl al-
Bayt. He would be aghast at speculations and suggestions that he was
the "Imam Mahdi" (nawdhu biLlah), and here is the proof.
I'm beginning to think that Khomeini was generally unaware of almost
7/8 of what was being done and said in his name, both by those around
him as well as the generality of his partisans.
I don't know if you have met many people who are in their upper
seventies or early eighties, especially if they are in poor health.
It is undeoubtedly true that such people would find it very hard to
concentrate and recall matters or argue lucidly.
Ayatollah Khomeini was good for his age and a particularly intelligent
man but it would be logical to assume that much was being done and
said in his name that would not have met his approval if he had been
aware of them. (This very excuse was also used for the very much
younger Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi.)
