Salamun Alaykum,

The following question was kindly answered by Br. Hamid Mavani.

Moderator - ABDG-A.

............................................................................

Question:

I am a follower of Ayatollah Sestani.  But would it be right if I was still
following the Mas'alas of Aga Khoui. After Aga Khoui died, I did change the
taqlid to Aga Gulpaigani, but still followed the ruling of Aga Khoui.
After his death, I started following Aga Sestani, but ruling of Aga Khoui.
If I can do what I am doing right now, what should I follow Aga Khoui in,
and what in Aga Sestani.

Please help clear this doubt.

............................................................................

Answer:

According to the opinion of Ayatullah Seestani you are required
to continue following all the available rulings (fatwas) of the late Ayat
Khu'i if you regard the latter as a'lam (most knowledgeable).  For new
issues which have not been addressed by Ayat. Khu'i you would need to
seek recourse to Ayat. Seestani.  As far as the religious dues (Sahm-e
Imam of khums) are concerned, you should remit them to Ayat. Seestani
or his authorized wakils (agents).

wa bi-l-laahi-t-tawfiq,

Hamid Mavani
