Can a mujtahid give fatwa of killing someone ?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The Jihad in Iraq, fatwa given by Sayed Ali Al-Sistani, against " ISIS " was a Jihad Kifaa'i. Thus a number of people were needed and when this number of people responded it was enough.
If the situation would deteriorate badly, God forbids, Sayed Al Sistani could give a " full jihad " (<-- someone knows this official name?) and thus all men who are able have to respond and participate or else they would be commiting haram.

I know about how in the past some have called for the killing of others (even scholars ?) and the people responded and dragged them through the streets. I hope someone can enlighten and inform us.

Salam. A mujtahid would be extremely cautious to call for someone's death. Ayatullah Khomeini made a fatwa against Salman Rushdie on February 14, 1989, after months of rioting in other countries caused destruction and deaths of innocent people.

Defending your country is not what the OP is asking about.

 " And if he can give command of performing jihad against evil forces  " 

This fits with the fatwa of Sayed Al-Sistani, doesn't it ?

The title of this topic said Can a Mujtahid give fatwa of killing someone? which was what I was replying to. I was not replying to the second question which is completely different.

Yes  sir i know that and in that case we dont even need a fatwa as  jihad kifai means jihad for defense but i am not talking about jihaad kifai i am talking about someone who has not attacked you who is not harmful to your life but to Islam like salman rushidie

This is the reason i ignore him (Ay. Khomeini). Well, do not pay attention to me.

No.

According to Imam Sadiq (as): whosoever strikes others with his sword and commands others to follow him when there are those more knowledgeable, he has been led astray and is false.

Only The Most Knowledgeable Can Enforce Obedience

Is the translation right ? What is the original word?

What can the most knowledgeable do to enforce obedience ?

What is in detail the example of enforcing obedience ?
