Salaam

I am confused about a topic about which i'd like to ask.

Ali Bin Ibrahim said, ‘My father narrated to me, from Hamad, from Abu Baseer, ‘From Abu Abdullahasws having said:

‘The Warner is Rasool-Allah, and the Guide is Amir Al Momineen, and after him the Imams, and these are His Words: and for every people there is a Guide [13:7] – i.e., in every time period there is a Guiding, Clarifying Imam Thus, it is a rebuttal upon the one who denies that in every time period and era there would be an Imam, and that the earth would not be empty from a Divine Authority, just as Amir Al-Momineen said: ‘The earth cannot be empty from an Imam standing by the Proofs of Allah, whether an Imam apparent, publicized, or an Imam fearful, obscure, lest it invalidates an argument of Allah and His clear Proof.

(Tafsir Al Qummi 1:359)

Therefore,there always has to be a divine authority present.

Imam Ali said:

People had been in slumber for a long time and the twist of the rope had loosened. The Prophet came with (a Book containing) testification to what (books) were already there and also with a light to be followed. It is the Qur'an. If you ask it to speak it won't do so; but I will tell you about it. Know that it contains knowledge of what is to come about, stories of the past, cure for your ills and regulation for whatever faces you.

(Nahj Al Balagah sermon 158)

Imam said  "Allah deputed the Prophet (S) at a time when there had been no prophets for some time" does this mean we had divine authorities other than the prophets.

I was talking about divine guides.

wa alykum as salam wrwb,

Truly, in the creation of the heavens and of the earth,

and the succession of night and day:

and in the ships that speed through the sea with what is useful to man:

and in the waters which God sends down from the sky,

giving life thereby to the earth after it had been lifeless,

and causing all manner of living creatures to multiply thereon:

and in the change of the winds,

and the clouds that run their appointed courses between sky and earth:

these are messages indeed for people who use their intelligence.

[ Sürah al-Baqarah 2:164]

na'am, there's guides other than...

e.g Al Qur'an
