Records of Wilayat al-Faqih 4item What is the view of the majority of scholars regarding Wilayah Faqih during the major Occultation? I would like to know who was the first scholar who presented the concept of Wilayat Al- Faqih? 1. How many years has it been since the belief in Wilayatul Faqih has existed? 2. Which year in history did this concept originate? 3. Has there been any mention of this concept by the Imams (a) or the Prophet (s)? 4. Has this concept been recorded in the traditions of the Shias or in their speeches? 5. How about in the tradition’s or speeches of the Ahlul Sunnah? At the time of Sheikh Mufid, Sheikh Tusi, Sayyid Murteza, Shahid Awwal and Shahid Thani and Allamah Majlisi and generally speaking, before the Islamic Revolution of Iran who were the Wali Faqihs? Has it always been more than one person in every period? Why was the execution of their wilayat so restricted and limited? Was it because they weren’t able to establish a government as was the case for Mirza Shirazi?
