Islam is a principled and an organized religion. As Wilayat al-Faqih is of utmost importance to the believers, likewise Marjaiyyah is much important. Defending Marjaiyyah is our duty. When it comes to defending, we don’t differentiate between the two. The principles, logic, and reasoning behind any revolutionary move or decision, come from Islam. Let it be defending against Saddam or defending against ISIS.
The enemies of Islam are the enemies of all conditions-fulfilling maraje’ who stand tall for the sake of Islam.
Sayyid Hashim explains this concept.
