Wilayatul Faqih – Part 3 – State & Religion


In an authentic Narration it is quoted from Imam Sadiq (a.s): “Any banner (of uprising) which is raised before the uprising of Al-Qa’im (atfs), its owner is a tyrant who is worshipped besides Allah, the Glorious, the Exalted”

– Does the above and many other similar narrations indicate that establishing an Islamic state during the time of occultation in not permissible? (Note that the Imam says: “Any flag”)

– Is infallibility the criterion for leading an Islamic state or a mere justice would suffice?

– If a leader is not infallible and can make mistakes, how can they lead the Islamic State?

In our third session on the topic of ‘State & Religion’ while we commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of the father of our beloved present Imam; Imam Al-Askari (as) we will carefully examine the meaning of narrations which apparently indicate incompatibility of State & Religion during the time of Occultation.
