Book Details

A question commonly posed in different circles is: if we all refer to the same sacred texts of the Qur'ān and Sunnah for guidance, why are there so many differences between the schools of Islamic law (madhāhib)? In other words, why did the great jurists (fuqahā') of Islām—such as the four main Imāms and their students—differ in their opinions and rulings? This work attempts to answer this very question, focusing on one aspect, namely: how different understandings of the ḥadīth literature influenced and shaped these differences in opinion. In addition, the author responds to some of the misgivings and objections which some people levy against these distinguished luminaries of Islām.This valuable work is a must-read for students of ḥadīth and fiqh, as well as anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of the differences that occur between the various schools of Islamic law. It will alert the reader to the expertise of the jurist Imāms and the effort they exerted in deriving rulings from the Qur'ān and Sunnah. It will also create in him a state of serenity and trust towards the Imāms and their schools of law, which are followed by the vast majority of the Muslim Ummah.

Author Description

"I have derived from it some valuable benefits and call upon Allāh to give its author unceasing success, and increasing ascendancy, that he may refute those who have deviated from the clear path by calling people to confusion regarding the followed Imāms, who disregard the Imāms, and who undertake to tear apart the Ummah."
