Ask an Alim

Imams have control over the universe and its working ?


Do Imams have control over the universe and  distribution sustenance (Rizq)  / increase or reduce life ?


Wa alaykum Salam

Thank you for your question.

The only being who has the authority and control  over all things in this world and is able to render change in them in any way is  Allah (s.w.t)

This power can be attributed to  the Prophets and infallible Imams by Allah (s.w.t )

The term used to explain this concept in the Islamic teachings is ‘wilayat e takweeni ‘
