The teacher in the Islamic Seminary of Beirut stated: “Distorting the thoughts of Imam ‎Khomeyni will bring a model of governance in Iran that will lead this country to chaos.”‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Hujjat al-Islam Sayyid Ja’far ‎Fadhlullah, a teacher in the Islamic Seminary of Beirut, referred to the efforts of some ‎groups in Iran to weaken or distort the thoughts of Imam Khomeyni and said, “That the late ‎Imam encouraged the Islamic government in Iran and made ijtihad the most important ‎element in determining the general policies of the Islamic Republic.” ‎

The Lebanese scholar said, “The ijtihad that Imam Khomeyni emphasized means that each ‎of the rulings that are implemented in the country has its rules and basis in some way in the ‎Quran and sunnah. In fact, the general policies of the system are based on Islamic ‎jurisprudence and rules that can not be changed without a jurisprudential and religious ‎reason.”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Fadhlullah added, “Some want to distance Iranian society from some of the ‎revolutionary aspects of Imam Khomeyni’s thought but it must be said that any attempt to ‎raise an idea against the Imam’s thoughts must be based on correct jurisprudential and ‎religious arguments because distorting their ideas will bring a model of governance in Iran ‎that will lead the country to chaos.”‎

He referred to the thirtieth year of the leadership of Ayatollah Khamenei and said, “Wilayat ‎al-Faqih (Guardianship of the Jurisprudent) is a model of Islamic government that governs ‎Iran along with the governing institutions of Iran and the recognition of the Wali al-Faqih ‎‎(Guardian-Jurist) is done by the elected representatives in the Assembly of Experts of the ‎Leadership and it’s a model of modern popular sovereignty that, like other current systems, ‎doesn’t depend on a single person or family.”‎
