After the approval of the Second Amendment of the Constitution in the First Parliament and incomplete implementation of it in the Second Parliament, practically, following up to its implementation in later rounds of Parliament failed. One of the reasons for such a failure was “ not introducing twenty of qualified scholars by the Marjaʿ ” . Ayatollah Seyyed Abul Hasan Isfahani was one such marjaʿ that during his life showed different reactions to the second clause. Now the question is why Ayatollah Seyyed Abul Hasan Isfahani, only once and at the request of the “ Islamic Homeland Movement” , introduced qualified scholars required by the second caluse of that Amendment, and refrained from this in later periods. What were the effective factors on his positions in the implementation of the second clause? Ambiguities in this regard require further investigation. Using primary sources and researches and relying on a descriptive– analytic approach, this paper aims to evaluate the Ayatollah Seyyed Abul Hasan Isfahani`s reactions in this regrad. Finally, the paper concludes that Ayatollah Seyyed Abul Hasan Isfahani, due to the issues and circumistances after the second amendment until Reza Shah came to power and the events thereafter, had no belief in active involvement in politics and with foresight, knew that the implementation of such clause is not practical at that time, therefore refused to pursue that issue.
