To follow the Jurisprudence of only one Imam for the whole life

التقلید بمذھب معین

  • Dr. Muhammad Mehrban Barvi

Abstract

Just  like  a  person  is  free  in  his  faith,  a  Muslim jurist  Scholar  (mujtahid) because of its capability of diligence (ijtihad) is also not allowed to follow any other  scholar,  but  for  a  person  who  is  not  a  scholar  and  follows  the jurisprudence  of  one  of  the  four  righteous  Imams,  is  it  compulsory  for  that person  to  spend  the  whole  life  following  that  jurisprudence  only.  Is  there  a choice or not for him to diverge and get help from the jurisprudence of one of the other remaining three righteous Imams?  In this article we will discuss on three different opinions upon following the four righteous Imams.
