Like many of Shiite scholars, Imam Khomeini`s view regarding the authority of jurisprudential traditions in comparison with non-jurisprudential ones, is not the same. Imam Khomeini believes in the authority of jurisprudential tradition with single narrator and he bases his principal reason upon common sense and the way that most wise men do (sireye oqala) while rejecting other reasons like consensus and appealing to Quranic and traditional reasons. On the contrary, he does not believe in the authority of non-jurisprudential traditions. Although some of his words demonstrate his belief in the authority of non- jurisprudential traditions, clarity of his speech in their being non- authoritative is undeniable. Anyhow he trusts in this kind of traditions in interpreting the ideological verses of holy Quran, especially with mystical approach.
