Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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**

From Ayatollah Sistani: 

2. Taqlid in religious laws means acting according to the verdict of a Mujtahid. 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).

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.
