Question 16: Is it permissible not to follow a specific Mujtahid? In fact, I want to study the rulings of different Mujtahids and follow the ones which are relatively logical? For instance, I check the fatwas (verdicts) of the six jurists introduced by the Islamic Seminary of Qom and then I will accept one of them as my Mujtahid and act upon his rulings; is it acceptable?
Answer 16: It is permissible to follow different Mujtahids at the same, if they are equally learned and equally qualified but if you consider one of them as the most learned of all, it is mandatory to follow him.
