You've posted that several times already. Is that really the worst allegation you can bring?

Are you sure brother? My marja allows it (FYI I don't follow the leader), and he(may Allah swt lengthen his life) is listed by the Jameh al-Modarresin (The Association of Teachers, the most top-notch Ahlul Khibra one can get) of the Hawza Ilmiyyah of Qom as one of the six most 'alam maraji currently(just in case you come trashing his credibility).
Marhoom Sheikh Lankarani (rh.a.) allowed it too, and so did Imam Khomeini(rh.a.) What's your point?
Bring proof that chess as we know it now is the same as it was in the time of the Masoomeen(asws).

I wonder if Ayatollah Khamenei would have such a large percentage of the following if he wasn't the Rahbar ?

actually, he(may Allah swt lengthen his life) would have a greater percentage of followers if he quits the post of the Rahbar. There are several people (i've heard them say this personally) that they don't deem him worthy of being followed as his marjaiyyah is "too tainted with politics" (I wonder what their take on the Imamate of Ameerul Momineen[as], Imam Hassan[as] and Imam Rida[as] would be), and if only he were more "apolitical", they would have happily followed him.

Then come the tattered accusations of "oooh!! he doesn't even have a risala!!" and that "oooh!! he is so taken up with politics that he couldn't even write a risalah for his followers", and the ancient fairy-tale that he was "promoted" to the rank of mujtahid so that he could get the Rahbar's post. They have begun to sound like broken records now, going on and on !

Some of us have really wonderful rational faculties !!!

He wouldn't bother being a marja if he wasn't Rahbar.

Where's shaykh al-foqaha ayatullah bahjat r.a name then?

Where is Ayatullah Ruhullah Khomeini RA then? The poll was for the ulema that are still alive. If anyone follows a marja who has passed away, may Allah bless him, then they can vote using the last option, Other, not listed above.

It's vitale that we choose marja' based on his knowledge and not if we rather like him or him. 

It is always necessary to follow the most learned Mujtahid. There are three ways of identifying the most learned Mujtahid:

a)one is himself a learned person and is able to identify a Mujtahid or an A'lam;

b) when two persons, who are learned and just and possess the capacity to identify a Mujtahid or the A'lam, confirm that a person is a Mujtahid or an A'lam, provided that two other learned and just persons do not contradict them.

c)when a number of learned persons who possess the capacity to identify a Mujtahid or an A'lam, certify that a particular person is a Mujtahid or an A'lam, provided that one is satisfied by their statement.

He does have a book called Practical Laws of Islam which has anything a resalah would. He's done wonders for Iran too. Poverty has gone way down and Iran has a self sufficient military. They are even giving irrigation products to farmers.

You guys are killing me, let's just get to 100...

A successful accurate pol should not have to much of the influence of the one making the poll

I recommend you also try to make this more random by posting this on other forums that don't have anything to do with fiqh you can ask for mods/ admins permission if you want

Sayed Sistani and Imam Khamenei are the two most followed marjas in the world. I wonder who their followers will follow next once these two individuals pass away (may Allah prolong their lives).

I plan on following Ayat. Bashir Najafi after the passing of Ayat. Sistani.

However, I will be also keeping an eye and ear towards Ayat. Seyed Reza Hosseini Nassab in Toronto since he is living in the West and would be much more knowledgable about matters specific to this part of the world.

That being said as I mentioned above Ayat. Najafi would be the one who I give taqleed to.

Ayatollah Hosseini Nassab is good but since he's a new marja I don't think he has that level of knowledge yet to be considered the most knowledgable.

Inshallah none of our maraja pass away before the return of our Imam (aj).

So inshAllah my next marja' will be the Sun Behind the Clouds himself.

    • May Allah bless you and forgive your sins, Tib Al-A’imma: http://www.duas.org/tibb.htm
    • سبحان الله The soul and body are separate of each other, Humans have free will, when they talk ill about Allah, they cannot harm Him, for it is their desire to do so. And We will turn their hearts and their sights, even as they did not believe in it the first time, and We will leave them in their inordinacy, blindly wandering on. Every Angel has a specific task, One obeys Allah alone, One causes the rain, One searches for people that remember Allah, One is upon the shoulders of a Believer for defending him against the Accursed Shaytan, And by Allah, They do not have senses like pain equal to us, But they are limited in knowledge, When Allah calls them for a task, They shall execute His will, But they can fall in misunderstanding the orders, like Iblees refused to prostrate to Adam, He did not prostrate because he felt himself far superior than a mortal of the essence of black mud fashioned in shape. I am not such that I should make obeisance to a mortal whom Thou hast created of the essence of black mud fashioned in shape. From this, you know that the human has free will, and it is Allah who guides whom He wills, And you shall understand that this life is a test, from your birth to the final stages of life, Where the Shaytan tries it’s last time to deviate you from the Right Path. And We have revealed to you the Book with the truth, verifying what is before it of the Book and a guardian over it, therefore judge between them by what Allah has revealed, and do not follow their low desires (to turn away) from the truth that has come to you; for every one of you did We appoint a law and a way, and if Allah had pleased He would have made you (all) a single people, but that He might try you in what He gave you, therefore strive with one another to hasten to virtuous deeds; to Allah is your return, of all (of you), so He will let you know that in which you differed. For Allah has made this life a test for the people, He brought Messengers and Prophets to every Ummah, To notify of His Greatness and Mercy, But some wander blindly in their own ignorance, Ignorance in wordly desires, So much, that when the Heavens are shown to them, They believe these are clouds on top of an other.
