Blind Following of Madh-habs [resources] – Part 1

Imam Abu Hanifa (R): “It is not permitted for anyone to accept our views if they do not know from where we got them.”

Imam Maalik (R): “Truly I am only a mortal: I make mistakes (sometimes) and I am correct (sometimes). Therefore, look into my opinions: all that agrees with the Book and the Sunnah, accept it; and all that does not agree with the Book and the Sunnah, ignore it.”

Imam Ash-Shaafi’i (R): “The Muslims are unanimously agreed that if a sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) is made clear to someone, it is not permitted for him to leave it for the saying of anyone else.”

Imam Ahmad (R): “Do not follow my opinion; neither follow the opinion of Maalik, nor Shaafi’i, nor Awzaa’i, nor Thawri, but take from where they took.”

[From: The Introduction of The Prophet’s Prayer Described by Sh. Al-Albaani, translated by Usama ibn Suhaib Hasan]

  1. Why don’t you add on the explanation of the comments of Imam Shafi’i regaroding sahih hadith being his madhab by Imam Nawawi nd Abu Hanifah by the Hanafi fuqaha, because they clearly have been taken out of context here

    • Frankly, I do not have the time. If you’re interested in such discussions, please free to find them elsewhere. In fact, if you can, find them for me and if I deem them appropriate, I’ll link them up here inshaa’Allah. JazakAllah khayr.
