🌹Understanding the concept of Velayat_Faqih
(the Authority of the Jurist)
(From the lecture of Ayatollah Khamenei in Ramadan of 1394 in Mashhad)
❓What do God's prophets come for? They come to help humanity towards spiritual perfection, and to familiarize people with moral laws sanctioned by God.
They create a new human-making factory.
The prophets of God struggle for decades to create their desired human beings, they are not satisfied by converting a few people, their aim is the whold mankind, they want that their message will gratually and automatically reshape the world community.
❓ Now, which is this new human-making factory, so to speak? All the people say that prophets come to create moral men worthy of the name human and they all believe that God's prophets educate people to travel on the path of God. And their factory means the creation of an Islamic system and community.
❓ What is the nature of this Islamic community? An Islamic community is a society or civilization governed by God Almighty, the injunction and laws of God are carried out in this community and all appointments are made according to the will of God.
A shinning example of such a society is Medina at the time of the holy prophet, he acted as God's deputy in executing laws, in providing regulations for all afairs and guiding people to the right path. (To be continued)
