Dear Sheikh: Are we obliged to follow one of the four schools of thought to the exclusion of the others?

Last Modified:  27 Aug 2011 08:18  GMT

Would it be correct to say that the Mâlikî and Shâfi`î schools of thought are the most similar among the four schools, meaning that they have more in common with each other than either does with the Hanafî school?

Please explain what is meant by the School of the Mutakallimîn and the School of the Fuqahâ’ in Islamic Law.

I am reading a book called “Islamic Law According to the Four Schools” by Sheikh Abd al-Rahmân al-Jazîrî. My question is: Which of these four legal schools – Hanafî, Mâlikî, Shâfi`î, or Hanbalî – should I agree with and adopt in my practice of Islam? Please know that in my country, the Mâlikî school of thought is widespread.

If there is no direct evidence of something's being unlaful in the Qur'ân or Sunnah, can the scholars declare it unlawful? Does the lawfulness or unlawfulness of something have to be verified by statements from these two sources? If the scholars do possess the right or authority to declare something lawful or unlawful in the absence of direct textual evidence, what must they consider to arrive at their verdict? Does it become obligatory for the Muslims to submit to the decisions of the scholars ...

Some scholars, in pursuit of realizing Islam’s easiness and leniency, seem to have fallen into error. In pursuit of seeking to ease and facilitate things for the people, they resort to opinions that are less strong than others. They seem to be neglecting the important principle in Islamic law that the means to sin must be prevented. They claim that prohibiting people too much leads them to resort to what is unlawful, so it is best to make things easy on the people. Am I right in thinking that ...

I am confused as I've read that the Pious Predecessors would remain silent upon recieving questions from others and refer such questions to their fellow Companions. They would refrain from giving their verdict, even though they may have known the answer. At the same time, we see in the Qur'ân that Allah tells the people to ask those who know if they themselves do not know. Allah also tells us not to conceal knowledge. How do we reconcile the conduct of the Pious Predecessors with the injunction ...

If wâjib means 'obligatory', what is the meaning of 'fard'? Do the punishments for neglecting them vary? Which one has greater significance? How is an action determined to be 'fard' or 'wâjib'?

Do the terms mubâh and mustahabb refer to the same thing?

Please define ijmâ’ for me and give some examples. I have learnt from a learned person that ijmâ’ is: the agreement of the Companions on a matter of Islamic Law which is in apparent contradiction to the texts of the Qur’ân and Sunnah. How is this?

If someone goes against juristic consensus (ijmâ’), does he leave the fold of Islam or at least does he become other than Ahl al-Sunnah?

I know that music is haraam all together and musical instruments. However, my question is, WHY is the duff instrument allowed on certain events (like marriage etc. for women of course)? I mean, it makes rhytmic sound too, isnt that an instrument also?! There is not much difference between some drum sounds and duff beating sound. Shouldnt duff be haraam as well if that is the case? Why is it allowed, what is the wisdom behind its allowance?

If something is mustahab is doing it's opposite makrooh? Praise be to Allaah. Not doing something mustahabb does not mean that one falls into doing something makrooh in principle, because what is mustahabb comes under the heading of commands and what is makrooh comes under the heading of prohibitions. The word mustahabb refers to something that is enjoined in Islam but is not absolutely binding, such as Duha prayer. The word makrooh refers to something that is forbidden by Islam, but not ...

Is working as a doctor in the insurance department of a private hospital, in which my role is limited to sending medical reports on the patient who needs tests or surgery to the insurance department to get approval from the insurance company to go ahead with these procedures, halaal or haraam? I hope that you can explain.

We have in our street in Jeddah (in Saudi Arabia) a simple football playground which neither we own nor we know the owner of it (government or individuals we don't know). We used to play in this playground since a long time, and as long as we take care of it since years (cleaning it…etc), it's regarded by society to belong to us according to customs and traditions in our local area. In summer and during Ramadan month, we make football championships on this playground, and we spend money to ...
