Salam, There is this Marja that I would like to follow but he has passed away.

Can I Do Taqlid to a Marja that is dead?            **I'm planning to follow Ayatollah Sistani on new issues**


If you are staring Taqlid, you have to follow a living Mujtahid.

Ayatollah Khamenei:

In initiating taqlīd, one should not neglect caution in following a living and a most knowledgeable mujtahid.


Ayatollah Sistani:

It is necessary for the Mujtahid who is followed, to be male, Shi'ah Ithna Ash'ari, adult, sane, of legitimate birth, living and just ('Adil).


But if you have followed a Mujtahid and he has passed away, the issue is different and you can follow him by the fatwa of a living Mujtahid.
