Question: I am currently 25 years of age, I was sat down by my parents when I became baligh and made to do the taqleed of Grand Ayatullah Seestani.

How do I ascertain who is Alam in a day and age when there is so many scholars to choose from? Whilst I dont know who is Alam which rulings do I follow?
