Im presenting a practical issue n would request the learned members 2 give their view-points, so that those not having knowledge r benefitted.
As we all know we have 4 prominent schools of thought regarding islamic jurisprudence. These schools have assisted the common people 2 undestand the issues, we keep confronting in our daily lives. My question is, if a person wants 2 seek assistence from the scholars of all the schools n later using his own brain, decides 2 act upon anyone out of them, but at a later stage, while facing some other problem, he adopts the view-point of the other school of thought. Is this allowed in our religion?
Why im placing the issue on the forum, cz one of my friend is of the view that we have 2 b associated with only one school of thought n we cannot seek opinions or adopt the view-point held by the others. He further stated that it depends upon the person, as 2 which school of thought, he wants 2 remain associated with, but he cant deviate at a later stage.
I just want 2 ask the learned members, can we seek assistence from all the 4 schools of thought, instead affiliating with one only or is it binding that we have 2 essentially select one out of the four.
This is the practical situation, many muslims remain confused about. Simple n easy answers will b appreciated please.
