Why does our society appear to get it so improper for distant Aboriginal groups? Why, regardless of many years of session and coverage shifts, can't governments introduce tasks that may fairly shut the space? Why do critics and students alike fight to make experience of the situation?

Sample text

Others, however, say that he is not prevented from continuing the Imamate even though he is excluded from contracting the office in the beginning - as his perfect health is taken into consideration before the Imamate is contracted while his total deficiency is considered before deposing him from it. As for the loss of sight, it excludes him from becoming Imam and con­ tinuing in it. If Imamate is contracted, it is annulled forthwith because this loss annuls his capacity for judgeship and for giving testimony : it is thus all the more fitting that it should also invalidate Imamate.

If it is the Khalifah who has designated the amir, the wazir of delegation has the right to subject him to his control and surveillance but not to dismiss him or transfer him from one province to another. If the wazir of delegation was alone in appointing him then there are two possibilities: the first is that he appoints him with the permission of the Khalifah, in which case he may not dismiss him or transfer him without the Khalifah’s permission and com­ mand; moreover if the Khalifah dismisses the minister it does not entail the dismissal of the amir.

As for preventing him from initiating the contract, there are two schools amongst the fuqaha: the first is that these deformities do not stop one from making the contract as they are not subject to the condi­ tions considered in this matter, none of the rights and duties of Imamate being affected thereby. The second is that it does exclude someone from the contract of Imamate and that indeed this contract is conditional upon his being free of such deformities: the governor of the nation should be free from blemish lest he be reproached and belittled for it and lest respect for him be diminished with the result that his people are less disposed to obey him.
