The aim of the present study is to analyze the theory of Velayat-e-Faqih in the political thought of Allameh Mesbah Yazdi. The research method is descriptive-analytical and is mainly based on his documents, lectures, and books. The results indicate that Velayat-e-Faqih in the political thought of Allameh Mesbah Yazdi is a theological and jurisprudential debate and is responsible for all the authority of Imam Masoom (AS). In proving the Supreme Leader, he cites two rational and narrative reasons. Regarding the rational arguments, he reminds us that the intellect is one of the four sources for inferring the Sharia ruling. Therefore, the value of citing a rational reason to prove Velayat-e-Faqih is not less than the value of quoting narrated evidence, verses, and hadiths.
