    four different schools

    Report bad ads?

    as-salam alaykum
    i didnt know exactly where to put this .. and i hope this is okay. I need some help please w/ the four schools of islamic thought. the four main ones i guess i should say. I know there are four.... I kinda sorta undertand the main separation .. but if i'm buying a book say at amazon how do i know which school I'm getting. I'm sure there's no website that i can go to, to plug in the book and see what it says about it. Is there any way to tell, is it likely to be A unless it specifically says B, C, or D?

    If this has been asked and answered, my most humble apologies

    Generally you can find out by researching the author and finding out what school of jurisprudence he followed, his book is most likely going to be based upon that school.

    May I correct you in one thing sister? These are not schools of Islamic "thought". Rather they are madhaahib or madhhabs(plural of madhhab) which means a school of Law or jurisprudence and they differ in the furu'(peripheral matters of law).
    Before you buy a book which is specifically on Jurisprudence you can read up the review where it is usually mentioned what the book is about and according to which school. Secondly you can read up about the author and which school of law he belongs to. Thirdly you can ask a scholar about the book. Books that are on general topics which are non-jurisprudential do not require such a thorough vetting. It is usually enough to check out whether the author is a deviant or an extremist and then decide. Being in touch with local scholars can be a great help in such matters.
    Wa salam.
