Switching back to Agha Khui’s Taqlid?


I was first on agha khuis taqlid, but after he died I switched to agha seestanis taqlid. Can I again switch to agha khuis taqlid now?


If a person acts according to the fatwa of a Mujtahid in certain matter, and after the death of that Mujtahid, he follows a living Mujtahid in that matter according to his obligation, he cannot act again according to the fatwa of the dead Mujtahid.
