    Which Maddhab do you follow? (OP)


    A'salamu alaykum.

    Anonymous poll.

    And, is there anywhere that teaches the 4 Maddhabs simultaneously, so as to compare and contrast them? And just generally learn about them

    Not that there is anything wrong in this. I think its best left to those pursuing islamic studies. We should focus on first learning everything we can about one mahdab that we follow and implementing it/islam fully in our lives inhsallah.

    Because each of the Maddhabs derive their rulings from the Qur'an and Sunnah, but how each of them interpret it can be different (that is why I started this thread, to learn about that in sha Allah). All human beings make mistakes and even the four Imams, may Allah have Mercy on them, stated that if any of their rulings go against the Qur'an and Sunnah, then disregard them. I made a thread on some of their sayings. So instead of just following one Maddhab, because society follows it or our family does, it would be more beneficial to look at why and how they came to their specific rulings, and with what evidence. Allah knows best.

    May Allah make it easy for you and good for you and a benefit for others inshallah. Still, i would think you would need to know the madhab of your region first before dwelling into the other ones. Regardless, you should ask your teachers for this information. Being in the field of deen they should be better aware of the resources you can use.

    Apart from this topic I would recommend all Muslims and even non-Muslims to read the life story of Imam Abu Hanifa. It is very inspiring.

    Looks like I have a lot of reading to do. JazakAllah
    bro

    Hadith says that Halal is clear and the haram is clear so fiqh are MAINLY MINOR secondary differences that are involved during implementing is some matters of Islam mainly regarding the worship and they are mainly the secondary parts of the worship as well like sunnah (not in Fards). example there is no difference even in fiqh with most obligatory actions of salah but mostly in sunnah since Prophet had done in different methods so any method is acceptable. So its ignorance to argue as some do on Fiqh to the extent of creating disunity which is GREATEST HARAM in Islam. We also see imam Abu Hanifa was the tutor of Imam Malik and imam malik was tutor of Imam Shafi but still they could co exist .


    An Example will make you clear . (IN SHORT) In salah or prayer the standing (kiyam) the rukoo, the sujudh the tashahud ,(sitting) the qirat, the number of rakat etc are basic fard acts leaving them will invalidate the salah, So they are the same in all of those fiqhs but only differ in keeping their hands while standing and doing rafayadain after ruko etc LEAVING THESE THINGS WILL NEVER INVALIDATE THE SALAH , THE DIFFERENCES are MAINLY MOSTLY in the MINOR secondary rules THAT ADD VALUE TO THOSE WORSHIPS so hope you understood that that's why any one following any fiqh can pray together following the other fiqh and there is no harm in it.

    Re: Which Maddhab do you follow?

    Assalamu alaykum,

    As I was growing up, I did not know about the existence of madhabs, as far as I was concerned they didn't exist. I remember it was only a couple of years ago when I began to study Islam I realised they existed - and I almost half-heartedly went for the Hanafi madhab for the reason because the books in our Islamic store dealt only with the Hanafi madhab - it was easier for me to study it as it was more accessible.

    No school of thought is wrong, each one is as well-supported by evidence as the next. I went for one because I had literally no knowledge of the deen and needed this 'guideline' to keep me on track. Altho as I study more I would like to read about all of the madhabs inshaAllah.

    Asalaamualaykum
    This simple honest answer is in a reality the very reason a madhab( any of the mainstream 4) actually became prominent. I would recommend that all read this answer with great astuteness.

    There is one more thing I would like to point out regarding following a madhab. It must be understood that the 4 mainstream madhab were derived from Quran and Sunnah by not only knowledgeable Jurists but also PIOUS JURISTS.

    When the people of todays time look at these 4 jurists, they commonly forget the piety factor that contributed to their works.

    Just to put this into perspective - I follow the hanafi school of thought however I'd like to share something amazing about Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal.

    When he passed away, people continued coming to make dua at the grave for aprox 1 week. The estimated number of that total in one week is 1.3 million !!!

    Today we (including our scholars) will be lucky even if our relatives pitch up at our funeral, or even remember to make dua for that matter.

    Re: Which Maddhab do you follow?



    If you ask Indonesian Muslims "Which madhab do you follow?", mostly of them would ask you back "What is madhab?". But if you ask them "Are you NU, Muhammadiyah, or Persis?", they would answer quickly.

    Muslims in Indonesia are not represented by madhab, but by organization. The three biggest organization that I mention above, and many other smaller organizations.

    The biggest, Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) is traditionalist organization that follow Shafi'i fiqh, but often satirized as "Shafi'i Furu" that follow Shafi'iyah in fururiyah matter while its ushul is Wallahualam. Muhammadiyah is reformist organization that adopt the thoughts from Rashid Rida. And Persis is reformist organization that very strict in matter of bidah.

    Basically there are only two madhab in Indonesia, Shafi'i and non-madhab. Tablighi Jamat and Hizbut Tahrir do exist in Indonesia, but I am not sure if they follow Hanafi madhab.

    Re: Which Maddhab do you follow?

    Madhab is important as it takes away the chances for normal people like us to actually understand the Quran without having the chance to misinterpreting it. That's why I believe Muslims, especially at a young age, follow one of the 4 madhab.

    I find that the best Madhab to follow is the one followed by the Imam of your Mosque. It prevents confusion.

    Where is ilm difference in opinion is inevitable which can be seen in the field of hadith, tafsir, tarikh, ilm arrijal etc - even superficially let alone delving into them.No need to go far, why sh albani, ibn baz, uthaymeen differ in fiqh and aqida,,,- despite being the part of the same sect...? https://ia902205.us.archive.org/17/i...in_Ijaz_sc.pdf

    You need not worry since Hanafi Imam is the only Tabeein Imam who has met Sahabas and imam Malik studied under him i think. and Imam shafi studied under Imam Malik. ( stand to be corrected if am wrong) but its a pity that those boasting we are hanafis but still never follow the order of Hanfi Imam not to Call Allah except by Allah Himself . ( iow do not call by your (Allah's) throne etc)
