Conferment of Religion A True or Verbal debate

Document Type : Original Article



The conferment of religious affairs to prophet and Imams is among
the controversial issues that has been the battle ground of scholars
and theologians since the early days of Islam on and the proponents
and opponents have substantiated their views through rational and
traditional documents. The exposition of issue helps the scholars
to have a clear view of the debate and not to be trammeled in
intellectual impasses in their positive or negative arguments. In
doing so, we seek to tile the path for a better understanding of the
issue and the Gordian knot that has preoccupied scholars for a
while and to challenge those who has regarded this issue a verbal
dispute and denied the right of legislation of Prophet and Imams.
Finally we are to prove that this is a dynamic debate between
scholars and needs to be demarcated in a more precise manner.
