What is the ruling if a woman was to take on the role of Marji’iya

September 4, 2013

Question: What is the ruling if a woman was to take on the role of Marji’iyah specializing in the needs of ‘The Muslim Woman’ during this era; to take on the role of issuing verdicts in specific issues concerning women, and that is because of the closeness of a woman [to another woman] and her understanding in what is being asked [with regards to the issues of women]?

Answer: Masculinity is of the conditions of Marji’iyah; however, it is permissible for a woman to become a teacher that teaches rulings and a preacher that memorizes issues [and their verdicts] by the Maraj’i, to teach and preach to women.
