Salaam, I am a shia male. My question to the forum is what’s your opinion if Taqleed is done as guidance and not as binding command?

Also, can the current Marja’s be considered as deputies of Imam Mahdi ((عليه السلام)) or are they just learned scholars ?  I am not against taqleed or scholars but I feel the Marja’s position has been elevated more than it should be. Please share your views.

Wa alaikum as salam

Essentially in taqleed you refer to someone who can provide you a ruling based on our sources (Quran and hadith). 

If you are able to derive islamic rulings yourself from these sources, then you don't need to refer to anyone.

If you aren't, but you selectively refer to them, then essentially you are sometimes following rules based on Qur'an and hadith and sometimes not. This isn't really a logical position to holdn
