nderstanding the concept of Velayat Faqih
(the Authority of the Jurist)
In the name of Allah
Because of the necessity of understanding and supporting the "Velayat Fagih" as the main factor of preparing for the reappearance of Imam Mahdi(aj), we allocate some of our messages to it:
* Velayat Faqih means:
“the authority of the jurist who is knowledgeable, fair, and prudent over the Islamic community, (of course) with the purpose of executing the Islamic rules and actualizing the religious values"
Questions about "Velayat Faqih":
What is our need for Velayat Faqih while all the religious rules and obligations have already been stated?
Islam is a comprehensive and eternal religion and it has a constant consideration for all the individual and social aspects for ever. It has issued a lot of rules for the justice and in order to actualize these rules and creating a fair community we need to have a government. Also in order to struggle the tyranny and unfairness we need to have a government.
The holy Quran says,
ألَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الَّذِينَ يَزْعُمُونَ أَنَّهُمْ آمَنُوا بِمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ وَمَا أُنزِلَ مِن قَبْلِكَ يُرِيدُونَ أَن يَتَحَاكَمُوا إِلَى الطَّاغُوتِ وَقَدْ أُمِرُوا أَن يَكْفُرُوا بِهِ... (نساء: 60)
Have you not seen those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you, [O Muhammad], and what was revealed before you? They wish to refer legislation to Taghut, while they were commanded to reject it...(Au-Nesa: 60)
It means that Allah likes right government and the Muslims must seek it and reject Taghut(the tyranny and unfairness ).
