Can an authentic hadîth abrogate the ruling of the Qur’ân? Can an authentic hadîth add something new to the ruling of the Qur’ân? If yes, please give examples for each of these.

I brought up the point with some people that the verse of stoning was a part of the Qur'ân, but was later taken out by Allah's command while its ruling remained. I cited the narration from 'Umar as proof. To say the least, I was sternly rebuked. One of them said that such an idea contradicts the verse: "Indeed, it is We who sent down the Reminder, and indeed, We will be its guardian." Is my assumption correct?

Can a verse of the Qur’ân contradict another and can an authentic hadîth contradict a verse of the Qur’ân?

Can you use weak hadîth when it comes to encouraging virtuous acts?

I am studying law and I am taking a subject called Islamic jurisprudence. I read that the Sunnah, along with the Qur’ân, is a source of Islamic legislation. How can this be justified since the Sunnah was complied long after the death of the Prophet (peace be upon him)?

Do single-narrator hadîth provide us with absolute knowledge (yaqîn) of their authenticity or a strong assumption (zann) thereof? If they only provide a strong assumption of their authenticity, can they be used to establish matters of faith?

Does the tacit approval of the Prophet (peace be upon him) always indicate that something is permissible. Can it also indicate that something is obligatory?

With respect to using antimony in the eyes, letting the hair grow long, eating a broth with bread, and other similar matters, are these merely personal habits and preferences of the Prophet (peace be upon him) or are they practices that we should emulate as an act of worship?

What is practical Sunnah, and what is it’s role in deriving Islamic legal rulings?

`Alî ibn Rabî'ah reported that a riding animal was brought for `Alî b. `Abî Tâlib to ride. When he put his foot in the stirrups he said, "In the name of Allah." When he was seated on it he said, "Glory to Him Who has subjected this (means of transportation) to our (use), for we could never have accomplished this (by ourselves). And to our Lord, surely, must we return." Then he praised and glorified Allah three timesand then said: "Glory to You (O Allah), there is no ...

What happens to a general ruling pronounced by a verse of the Qur'ân when the meaning of another verse narrows its scope, but does so in a vague manner? Do we still act according to the dictates of the general ruling?

If you doubt something a scholar says because he does not provide proof, is this permissible, even if that scholar is well reputed? What do you do if two scholars disagree?

Some scholars say that taqlîd of one of the four schools of thought is obligatory. I find their argument valid as they say it is not possible for a common man to make ijtihâd by himself. This makes the religion easy for the common man. I would be very grateful if you could shed more light on this subject.

What should a layman do if there is no muftî or mujtahid available to him, aside from a person of bad moral character?

According to the Hanbalî school of law, should we follow the statements of the Companions when there is no ruling in the Qur’ân and Sunnah? What do we do if the Companions disagreed?

If a layperson follows a scholar in matters of Islamic Law by way of taqlîd, is he exempt from further responsibility or is he still liable to engage in personal research and investigation? Can a Muslim follow a scholar blindly in matters of faith and creed? Also, will he be sinful if he follows a scholar of misguidance?

A few days ago, I saw Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in a dream commanding me to do something. I have read that Satan can’t come in the appearance of prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and that the one who sees him in a dream actually sees him. What about receiving commands from Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in a dream?

Is it true that in our present century, every fatwâ that is passed in one country is equally binding upon people in other countries, even if the level of Islamic understanding in those other countries is very much different?

Some people in my country say that we should try to live and dress like the people at the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and not adhere to our social customs that were not in existence during the time of the Companions. They often cite the customs and traditions that we have relating to marriage festivities and family get-togethers as things we should abandon, even though those customs contain nothing sinful. They argue that we should abandon all the customs and traditions of our societ ...

Dear Sheikh: What are the four schools of Islamic Law? Are we permitted to follow one of them?
