Only The Most Knowledgeable Can Enforce Obedience

Recommended Posts



Consider the following saying of Imam Abu Abdillah (as):


Whosoever strikes others with his sword and commands them to follow him when there are those more knowledgeable, he has been led astray and is false.


Al-Kafi, Volume 5, Page 23, Tradition #1


Three questions: 

1) How can anyone besides a living Imam (as) from Ahlul Bayt justify capital punishment nowadays? 

2) Following this tradition, shouldn't capital punishment be forbidden in Islamic nations? Especially for crimes such as apostasy? 

3) How can any of today's so-called Islamic leaders demand obedience? (Since we cannot know which one of them is the most knowledgeable leader.)



Thank you
