Ahlul Bayt World Assembly's secretary of book council has announced the publication of Sheikh Momen Qomi's book "al-Vilayah al-Ilahiyya al-Islamiyah" (divine Islamic leadership) and added: Velayat-e faqih (Guardianship of the Islamic Jurist) and his jurisdiction in Major Occultation of Imam Mahdi is one of the most important subjects in Islamic political jurisprudence. Since the past, sources of emulation and scholars have addressed the issue of Velayat-e faqih and his jurisdiction.
Interviewing with ABNA reporter, Sheikh Abbas Jafari Farahani said: in the contemporary history, Imam Khomeini has addressed the necessity of Islamic Government and Velayat-e faqih as one of the certain principles of Islamic political thought which is rooted in genuine Islamic sources more than anyone else. In his books " Kashf Alasrar", "al Baie", and " al makaseb al muharramah " has addressed the necessity of establishment of Islamic government during Imam's occultation and the scholars and sources of emulation's involvement in social affairs using the four primary sources (Holy Quran, narratives, reason, and consensus).
He remarked: after the Islamic revolution of Iran this subject has been discussed and talked about a great deal in Seminary schools. Among those who elaborately discussed this subject was Sheikh Mohammad Momen Qomi, one of Imam Khomeini's pupils. "Velayah Elahia al-eslamiah" is the fruit of those discussions.
He then added: after the Islamic Awakening in some countries in the region, the necessity to publish a book on Velayat-e faqih and his jurisdiction was mentioned by Ahlul Bayt World Assembly's secretary-general and we decided to prepare and publish this book in one volume for distribution especially in Arab countries.
He then concluded: the present book has 427 pages and has been printed in Lebanon under supervision of the author.
