    • Wa alaikum as salam  If you are interested enough to read about the subject then there are two academic works by Robert Gleave (Scripturalist Islam and Inevitable Doubt) that cover the topic at a level which probably hasn't been covered by anyone else in the English language.  In practical terms, the Akhbari school hardly exists anymore. Some people have borrowed the Akhbari label, but have very little to do with the original Akhbariyya and their methodology. The Usooli methodology is therefore essentially a default/standard today. 
    • Salam. Akhbaris don't believe in taqleed, so they don't follow a marja. According to the link posted by Brother Ashvazdanghe above, after Shaykh Yusuf al-Bahrani (died in 1772), who was himself a moderate Akhbari, there were no major and outstanding Akhbari scholars left in the Islamic world.   
    • Thank you for your correction on this matter. I was parroting something I had heard in my previous post when I raised a question and it is nice to clear up some of my confusion. 
    • I appreciate this post. Although I am an Usooli, I am interested to learn more about Akhbari to understand the Safavid dynasty better. My understanding is that the Akhbari school arose in the mid 16th century and was the school with greater political power for about 150 years, after which the Usooli school has been dominant. Are any of the current marja from the Akhbari school?
