Understanding the concept of Velayat Faqih
(the Authority of the Jurist)
✅In the name of Allah
❌ The questions about Velayat Faqih:
❓Who is supposed to be the leader of the government?
Because of prophecy verdict and Allah's representativeness, all the honorable prophets enjoyed the right of leadership and some of these who could manage to establish a government did so, such as Saint Suleyman, David, Joseph,... and Prophet Muhammad(pbuh)
It has been mentioned in Holy Quran that ""O David, indeed We have made you a successor upon the earth, so judge between the people in truth...”(Sad: 26)
👉"The verse indicates that assigning the successor and determining the governor on the Earth is a divine job." (Ahsanulhadith, volume 217, page9)
The job of Islam’s messenger is to settle the cultural, political, economical, and military issues. This is clear from their lifestyle and it is a command of Allah:
“Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], the Book in truth so you may judge between the people by that which Allah has shown you...” (Al-Nisa,.105)
Regarding this verse, Imam Sadiq (as) says:
Allah has raised the prophet to take him to the highest levels of perfection. Then Allah praised him with the most deserving words. Then Allah gave him guardianship of people so that he can lead them toward Allah and have control over the things.
👉Therefore, the desired and ideal government is the one ahead of which there is the holy Prophet and (according to holy narrations) Imams would be after him.
❓* The next question is: In the unappearance era of Imam Mahdi(aj), when there is no access to innocent Imam, what's our duty?
