Teacher in the Islamic Seminary:‎
Hujjat al-Islam Vatankhah considered Wilayat al-Faqih and Shi’ism as a continuation of the ‎wilayah of Imam Ali and emphasized, “The Islamic Revolution and the formation of a ‎religious government in Iran were based on the teachings of Ghadir.”‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Hujjat al-Islam Hasan Vatankhah ‎referred to the ‘Days of Wilayah [Guardianship]’ and Eid al-Ghadir and explained the issue of ‎the acceptance of wilayah in today’s society and said, “One of the lessons learned from ‎Ghadir is that a society cannot be without a wali [guardian] and in fact, Wilayat al-Faqih ‎‎[Guardianship of the Jurisprudent] is a branch of the wilayah of the Commander of the ‎Faithful [Imam Ali] on the day of Ghadir Khumm.” ‎

The teacher in the Islamic Seminary added, “The Holy Prophet of Islam [Muhammad] was ‎commissioned by God on the day of Ghadir to appoint Imam Ali as the wali of the Muslims, ‎that is, due to the fact he was the wali of the Muslims, he was ordered by God to appoint a ‎wali for the community after himself so that the Islamic ummah doesn’t fall into error and sin ‎without a leader and an infallible Imam.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Vatankhah considered the wilayah of Imam Ali as permanent and continuous ‎and said, “A society must have a wali, especially the society of today which has expanded ‎and the same programs that Imam Ali had for society and were designated by God must be ‎implemented in the society today. We are proud to live in a government headed by a wali al-‎faqih [guardian-jurist].”‎

His Eminence added, “Undoubtedly, our Islamic Revolution and the formation of our religious ‎government in Islamic Iran, which is based on Shi’ah jurisprudence and teachings, is derived ‎from Ghadir, and it was this wilayah of Imam Ali that was able to overthrow the government ‎of the tyrants.” ‎

Referring to the necessity of promoting the discussion of Ghadir, he said, “Of course, the ‎discussion must not be such as to provoke it to be contrary to unity. We must defend our ‎beliefs and principles but it must not be such as to cause tension and give Sunnis a ‎negative opinion regarding Shi’ahs.”‎
‎ ‎
Hujjat al-Islam Vatankhah added that some people don’t want us to unite with our Sunni ‎brothers in a practical manner and noted, “For this reason, it’s necessary that the issue of ‎Ghadir be discussed in a rational and amicable manner which doesn’t lead to the creation of ‎conflict.”‎
