Istifta'at

Is the primary Taqlīd of a deceased permissible?

We believe that in the case of Aʿlamiyah being proven, there is no objection to follow (Taqlid) a deceased, be it primarily or continually. When we say Aʿlamiyah it is not restricted to verdicts, rather is encompasses general religious knowledge as well, and whenever the Aʿlamiyah of an individual is proven, whether he is alive or deceased, it is obligatory to follow (Taqlid) him. This matter is applicable to contemporary people or those close to our era.
