Read full description of the books:Why are there four schools of Islamic Law? Is it necessary for Muslims to follow them or should we take Islam direct from the Qur'an and the Sunna?
This short work outlines the answer which the great scholars of the Shari'a have given to these questions. Basing itself on the realisation that it is binding on every Muslim to follow the Qur'an and Sunna, it explains the scholars' view that this is best achieved by following great Mujtahids, and that amateur efforts to derive the Shari'a from the revealed sources will lead to distortions of the Revelation.
Divided into two sections, one giving the main argument in straightforward terms, and the other providing detailed notes to back up the argument, this book is necessary reading for every Muslim who wishes to follow the Qur'an and the Sunna accurately and completely [From the book cover].
