    Mixing madhabs (OP)


    Selam,

    I'm hanefi but I find myself 'agreeing' (if that's at all possible because who am I) with certain Shafii and Maliki positions; for example regarding kazaa namaz/salat but many other issues as well. Is it bad to mix certain positions of the four madhabs, do any of you do this? Be honest

    To be honest, the few issues that could come up are mostly to do with rulings on menstruation, so I don't really want to go into details, but if you have a sisters' halaqa, there could be a few differences in terms of how things are done in tajweed classes. However, I think you are right, it is best to ask a scholar on such issues. By the way, I thought drawings of humans were haraam? ^^

    Re: Mixing madhabs

    Assalamualaikum,

    I'm just going to share some of the points on madhab which I learned from my fiqh lesson.

    Madh-hab literally means a way of going or simply a path. The position of an outstanding scholar on a particular point was also referred to as his Madh-hab (the path of his ideas or his opinion). Eventually, it was used to refer to the sum total of a scholars' opinions, whether legal or philosophical. Later it was used to denote, not only the scholar's opinion, but also that of his students and followers

    The four different schools of madhabs may contradict with one another on some cases but this does not mean that they are wrong in all aspects and it is not advisable to reject the madhabs because there a risk of falling into deviation for rejecting the madhabs all together. There is also negative impact following specific madhab blindly because it has caused division among the ummah. The only madhab that should be followed blindly is the madhab of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and to do so we must take the advises of the early scholars of the 4 madhabs, keeping in mind that they take us to the madhab of our Prophet (pbuh), they were also the blind followers of the madhab of our Prophet (pbuh). So they helped us for a better understanding of how the sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh) should be followed. So without the knowledge of it, we cannot follow the sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh) accurately with our own limited knowledge. Therefore, we can do this by following a scholar of a particular madhab wherever we are, but we shouldn’t restrict ourselves to its rulings. We should keep in mind that this scholar and those of earlier generations before him is only helping us to arrive at the madhab of our Prophet (pbuh).

    Among the other early scholars of islam who studied under one of the traditions of legislation of the 4 schools of madhabs but they did not restrict themselves to its rulings. For eg, imam ibn tammiya studied under the traditions of hanbali madhab but he did not restrict himself to its rulings or blindly follow it.

    We should view all the madhabs as conveying the message of the madhab of Prophet (pbuh) which is the one and only pure madhab which is perfect and has not contradiction, but looking at the madhabs as 4 different perspective religions is absolutely forbidden.


    Note: Don’t just pick and choose among teachings of the different madhabs according to your desires because that would like following your desires. You should rather seek out the correct understanding of fiqh in order to be on the right path.

    hope this helps

    And Allah knows best

    Re: Mixing madhabs

    I think there is a difference in a person following a ruling because he merely likes it or it suits him and following a ruling because it is closer to the sunnah. The former is based upon whims and desires and will lead one astray while the latter is based upon authentic evidence and will keep one upon guidance.

    Re: Mixing madhabs

    In all honesty, I have not studied the madhab. Where I come from it is known that we follow Shafie but recently I was informed that in certain issues we follow other madhabs. In fact there is a lot of mix but it is not at all widely known by the population at large.

    When I questioned deeper, I was informed that that when we die we would not be questioned which madhab we belong to but on the 5 pillars of islam and our faith (and of course our deeds etc).

    I should read up on them and find what the 'real' differences are but that would be another time. If anyone could give a summary, it would be of great help. In the meantime, I just carry on with the practice of the 4 pillars (until I get the chance to fulfill the 5th (Hajj)

    Re: Mixing madhabs

    In fact, I found a post when I Googled it almost immediately after posting the above, and it was a thread from this forum. Had plenty of pages on it. Pretty heated arguments for pages.... After closing the page I logged on to IB and couldn't find it again.

    And, after reading the post, I realised that we can get really 'hung up' on these classifications. Really, it seems the Madhabs only comes to play generally on the fringes of law and 'technicalities'. The most important is the basic and the intention for doing it in the first place. The idea, for me is that we are given the mind as a tool. The madhabs are the highest degree of interpretations generally accepted. The fact that we should choose one over the other and cannot mix is human law, not Allah's. If the intentions are wrong, then we are only cheating ourselves at the end of the day.

I will simply stick to Hanefi rulings. Most people in my country of origin (Turkey) are Hanefi anyway...

    It is because their methodology in Usool Al-Fiqh differs greatly from the other three Imaams. If you truly want to appreciate the rulings of the Hanafi Fiqh you will have to give their Usool a read.

    That would be difficult! Imaam Maalik saw that what was being done in Madinah was of greater Hujjah than the Hadith. So, if the two were in conflict and the people of Madinah were doing something in a particular manner and a Hadith said otherwise, he would take the doings of the People of Madinah. The other Madhabs did not hold this view.

    The Hanafis do not permit abrogation or specification of a Qur'anic Verse or Mutawaatir Hadith by one which is 'aahaad. Rather, only a Mutawaatir Hadith can abrogate or specify a Qur'anic Verse or another Mutawaatir Hadith. The Shaafis and Hanbalis do not hold this view. For them a 'aahaad Hadith can abrogate and specify a Mutawaatir Hadith.

    Just these differences lead a great difference in the rulings which are derived from the primary sources. There are many other differences.
