Director of Italian-based Imam Mahdi (AS) Institute said Fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) can offer practical solutions for the challenges the Muslim world is facing.
Speaking at the international conference on ““Role of Muslim World in Global Power Structure” on Wednesday, Hojat-ol-Islam Abbas De Palma added that Fiqh is subject that covers all of the Muslim society’s issues.
He also referred to Velayat-e Faqih (leadership of the Supreme Jurist) as necessary for all societies, as every society needs someone (a leader) who can implement the Divine teachings in the best manner.
“Fortunately, Muslims today have a Vali Faqih like Ayatollah Khamenei who … in different challenges makes decisions that are in the best interest of the Muslim Ummah.”
Hojat-ol-Islam De Palma further pointed to the issue of political Ijtihad and said all Muslim countries need to recognize that political Ijtihad is a necessity for governance in Islam.
The two-day international conference on “Role of Muslim World in Global Power Structure” began in Tehran on Tuesday with the participation of scholars and political figures from different Muslim countries.
