Wilayat al-Faqih and Religious Authorities 5item What is the relationship between governance of a jurist (wilayat al-faqih) and authority in jurisprudence (marja’iyat)? What is the view of the majority of scholars regarding Wilayah Faqih during the major Occultation? What is the relationship between wilayah and marja’iyyah? Do the decrees (fatawa) of the wilayat-e-faqih override the decrees of other marja’s? If they do, then why do we need other marja-e-taqlid? My Questions are that, what is Wilayat - E - Faqih? Do a Wali-e Faqih's Fatwas override the Fatawas of other merja's? If they do, what is the need for other meraja-e Taqlid? If I am living in a foreign country other than the one under the rule of Wali-e Faqih, what are his rights on me and what are my rights on him? Should different countries have different walis (guardians)?
