Al-Hokumat al-Wila’yyai (The Government of the Guardian Jurist)

Book (Monograph)

It is the Arabic translation of this Persian book. It is a critical analysis of the key-concept in the political theory of Ayatollah Khomeini, Wilayat (guardianship). This book is a modern critique based on traditional evidence, in other words, an insider critique. The conclusion of this comprehensive survey based on demonstrative jurisprudence is this statement: The guardianship of the jurist does not have any base in the Qur’an, sound tradition of the prophet and Shi’ite imams, Muslim consensus and ‘aql (reason). It is a baseless and void theory.
