    Which Maddhab do you follow?


    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 honestly do not understand these "4 schools of thought". I know that a Muslim is supposed to ONLY take their religious and moral beliefs from the Quran and sunnah..

    Do these schools of thought make up their own laws/beliefs?

    No they don't, all of them interpret their laws/beliefs based on the Qur'an and Sunnah.

    Asalaamualaykum
    No - I don't think so.

    To learn one madab on its own is years and years of study.

    Also you must understand that knowing the masaail of a madhab is actually the easy part, knowing the derivation of it is totally another.

    Very beautiful topic, but I don't think any place would attempt to teach it as it gets VERY complex.

    The average person can follow any madhab. Normally it would be a madhab that most of the community follows as he would have access to scholars. There is no right and wrong madhab from the main 4. You must understand that there were actually more than 4 but the 4 became mainstream due to the topics covered and the organization of the how it was put forward.

    My parents claim to be Hanafi, but we have some rules which are against Hanafi, which lead me to believe we are in our own category as Gulenists.....Gulenist is a follower of the Gulen movement. For instance, eating shellfish is forbidden in the Hanafi madhab, while it is allowed among my family and Gulenist friends. We also don't believe in death penalty for apostasy, death penalty for blasphemy, forbidding music, that Christians and Jews go to hell regardless of their deeds, and that growing a beard is required........Goodness, I sound like a deviant....

    Yea that is Gluenism not Islam. He is just a liberal guy you are following, not a sunni scholar. We should follow Quran and Sunnah not any movement guy who promotes otherwise.

    There are some fiqh books containing the rules of all 4 madhhabs, but I don't know if any English translations are available.

    Re: Which Maddhab do you follow?


    It is best to learn the religion from Quran and Sahih Sunnah for yourself. However, these Imams had given people an established "program" according to their own understanding of Quran and Sahih Sunnah.

    I try to follow Imam Abu Hanifa. He differs from other Imams with taking not only the litteral first meanings of the verses but taking everything with the wider content by making comparison to entire Quran and Sahih Sunnah. But, this doesnt mean that Hanafi madhhab is superior to other madhabs. This is just why I think it is more accurate.

    There is a turkish translation of this book in 10 volumes, contains the views of the 4 madhhabs, but not always on all topics, mostly I see that of Hanafi madhhab here

    Actually people don't determine it. They follow their parents' and society's madhhab since all madhabs are regarded true by mainstream Sunni Islam. I think you are a revert Muslim and looking for a certain madhhab to follow?

    No, I am not. (Also, that is a rather personal question to direct at a sister, in my opinion). I don't follow any Maddhab I just think it would be good to have knowledge on them. In Morocco we follow Maliki, and I am just interested in learning about all of them at this point, that's all. It is good to know what evidence of the Qur'an and Sunnah they derive their rulings from and why some are different. Allah knows best.
