Before proceeding any further I want to clear one thing in our minds. We have a rough idea that there are different schools of thought in Muslims for e.g. Sunni, Shiite, Deobandi, Ismaili, Bohri, Wahabi, Shafie’e, Hanifi and many more [I do not know all the names of the divisions]. These days normally a Muslim follows only one school of thought whole life, and doesn’t even know what others follow. Now the question arises must we follow just one school of thought strictly and rigidly, and must never look into other schools of thought to know what they are doing? And how they are doing? Or is it correct to follow things from other sects too, other than our own? So below is my next question.
Qn no 15: Can we, Muslims, follow different ‘maslaks’ schools of thought, at the same time? Or must we follow only one school of thought strictly and rigidly? And must we behave and look different from other ‘maslaks’ and look and behave more like our own school of thought?
Choose most appropriate option.
1] We must follow, strictly and rigidly, only one school of thought, whole life, to stay in right path.
2] We must follow only Quran and Sunnah, and not any scholar.
3] We can follow all the scholars, where they are according to Quran and Sunnah and stop where they are not. Because going with scholars we have more understanding of Islam.
4] None of the above.
Answer no 15: is Option 3: We can follow all the scholars, where they are according to Quran and Sunnah and stop where they are not. Because going with scholars we have more understanding of Islam.
