Which Madhab Should I Choose – Shaykh Muhammad Bazmool
Q: May Allah bless you, Shaykh Muhamad. I am a student at the Faculty of Sharee’ah in the University of Madeenah, however I’m still struggling with regards to Fiqh. Should I study the madhab of my country, which is the Maliki madhab, or should I study Hanbali fiqh ?
A: If it is easy for you to study the Maliki madhab, then this is what will benefit most if you return to your country, in shaa Allah. And if this is difficult for you and studying the Hanbali madhab is possible, then study that, because this is an opportunity made easy for you to learn it under the supervision of it’s scholars. May Allah grant you tawfeeq.
It is important that you devote your attention to the methodology of seeking knowledge, so that you don’t became fanatical toward the madhab of your Imaam. Learn upon the foundation of proof, and rely upon what points toward the evidence.
Learn the responses of your madhab surrounding the issues of differing. Learn it’s fundamentals and what it’s most correct positions are. And I ask Allah to grant you success.
