SHAFAQNA – One of the duties of Muslims especially at the time of occultation of Imam Mahdi (AJ) is to follow and obey Waleyeh Faqih as the general deputy to Imam Mahdi (AJ). Imam Zaman (AJ) issued a command in this respect which says: For resolving issues and problems during various events (political, religious, economical, military, cultural, social, and others) refer to narrators of hadith, and religious scholars (Faqih) as they are my proof on you at the time of occultation, and I am the proof of God on them .
