    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

    Re: Which Maddhab do you follow?


    ...i suppose the best imam to follow is the one with the best memory.

    if he only reacts to what is put infront of him.. then i suppose there is no madhab at all.

    im just venting i suppose, its not what you know after all that gives character.

    Imam Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti(d. 911 AH) said:“The difference found in the four Schools of Islamic law (Hanafi, Shafi, Maliki and Hanbali) in this nation is a huge blessing and an enormous virtue. It has a subtle hidden wisdom the intelligent are able to grasp, but the ignorant are blind of. I have even heard some of them say:...... http://www.darultahqiq.com/do-i-need...llow-a-madhab/

    I think the best madhab is "siraat al-mustakeem" the straight path.

    instead of memory taqwa should be the criterion to trust the scholars

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.

    I think I had best explain. I live in a very Rural area, we are 8 miles from the nearest town and that only has 134 people. Our nearest neighbor is over a mile away and we only have 2 neighbors between us and the town. My wife and myself are the only 2 Muslims within a 100 mile radius. The closest Masjid is 124 miles away. It would be almost ridiculous to not follow the same Madhab as the Imam.

    Re: Which Maddhab do you follow?


    I make salaah the hanafi way because that is how I was tuaght, but I follow no madhab as I never required it.

    I find Islam is simple and natural. I don't require explanations because the questions I once had, are now answered through study and lecture.

    Re: Which Maddhab do you follow?


    It is pretty much the same with me, I was taught how to read the salah and other small details in the Hanafi way, and that is how I have always done them.

    However, I've never found the need to specifically refer to the teachings of a particular madhab for anything to do with my understanding of Islam, the fundamental aspects of the deen are universal and not difficult to understand. And honestly when I am discussing anything with Muslims I can't tell who belongs to which madhab, it's never been much of an issue.
