Q: I recently got married. I follow a certain marji‘ and my husband follows
another one. He always orders me to follow his marji‘. What can I do in this
A: Generally speaking, nobody is allowed to force somebody else to make taqlid
of a certain marji‘. Unless it is evidenced that the second marji‘ is the most
knowledgeable one, it is not permissible — as based on obligatory caution — to
change taqlid to him.
