I have read about this, but want to know more about this concept. Where did this come from? Yes, I know that it was Imam Khomeini who was the first who wanted to practice (with many others) this. But this has been practiced under the Imams (a) rule also ?

But those who have criticized this, believe that the limits of the power of Wilayte Faghi is far too much..


There are many from the West and Muslims who say that this is almost the same rule as under the Shah. But this is impossible. Choosing President every 4 years, etc. But how much power is the spiritual leader?

"My Lord, grant me success in struggling during failure, in having patience in disappointment, in going alone, in Jihad without weapons, in working without pay, in making sacrifice in silence, in having religious belief in the world, in having ideology without popular traditions, in having faith without pretensions, non-conformity without immaturity, beauty without physical appearance, loneliness in the crowd, and loving without the beloved knowing about it. My Lord, You teach me how to live; I shall learn how to die."

"Ey_Baba" it is "not similar" to the "Baha'i Universal House of Justice" which is headed by "All Male, 9 Individuals in Israel", which is collectively considered as "Infallible" and whose decisions are believed to be "inspired by God Himself".

Many Fundamentalist Christians / Jews (Anti-Baha'is) believe that the "Haifan Baha'i Universal House of justice" is similar to the WF of Iran. It is totally wrong. It is not similar.

WF is much better than the "Universal House of Justice"
1) It does not have the Counselors / ABMs (Who are implanted by the UHJ as monitors to keep a watch on the behavior of each and every member of the Baha'i community).
2) There is no Shunning.
3) There is no brainwashing. Just opposite to the Baha'i faith, where new converts are RUHI'ISED and Brainwashed.

I can tell you more. If you have interest please tell me.

Wilayat al-Faqih is to unite and protect a group of people or a nation, if Islam is under serious threats from global enemies.  It is only applicable in Iran and no where else.  Without this concept, Islamic Iran will fall apart and enemies would have destroyed the revolution long time ago.  Even the Hezbollah group is relying on the Wilayat al-Faqih that has been established in Iran to face the threat from the Zionist group.

Wilayat al-Faqih is higher than the "Marja-iyyat" system.

If Islamic Revolution in Iran has not occurred (1979), wilayat al-faqih would not be needed, only the marja-iyyat system will continue.

I heard a lot about Ayatollah Sistani's view regarding WF. Most said that he do NOT supports the concept that is  practice in today's Iran, etc. So I searched a bit, and foundt out that  Seestani views regarding this are not so different  of today's WF practices in Iran.

But he has a little different options regariding how to choose a wilayat :


Ayatollah Seestani's opinion is that the wilayat is for the just juristwho has been accepted as a "wali" by the majority of the believers in their general affairs.

The Assembly of Experts (consisting  86 Islamic scholars\mujtahid) choose the rahbar,
Something Sistani believes should be elected by the people.

But I wonder if there are other Marja in iran who share the same opinion like  Sistani?
