I have access to shafi'i madhhab through the Reliance/Maqasid and one more German book, but no access to any reliable scholars in my area (neither shafi'i nor hanafi). I'm experiencing hardships(/waswasa?) because of often/constantly having bleedy wounds (not enough for being ma'dhur, but enough to disturb my life, I know the rulings concerning this bleeding well enough).
I have many different hanafi fiqh books from Turkish, South-African, Pakistani and other backgrounds and often I get different answers on the same question from them. Of course in terms of basic salah they state the same, but concerning deeper questions they have diverging views. Furthermore I find most of these books to be either weirdly translated/written/organized, often lacking of Arabic transcription and/or the original Arabic text, lacking of discussion concerning certain crucial topics etc..
The thing is that the more I read the Reliance the more I'm absorbed by the clearcut rulings, the concise texts and the discussions concerning many important/interesting topics where I formerly used to search the web or Sunnipath.com to get information on. (Sects, Aqeeda, Taqlid, Taswwuf etc.) I really love this book because I feel it to be like a real guide which gives the reader the ability to practice upon from birth to death, written in good language. Furthermore knowing that the author is an acomplished shaykh of tasawwuf seems to attract me even more. What I really like is that this book really covers all I need to know and even more but still within a simple book not exceeding 1300 pages!
I don't know if it would be reasonable to change from Hanafi to Shafi'i in this case.
Thinking that I' currently taking my hanafi knowledge from Sunnipath.com, 5-6 different books and this forum it wouldn't be a great move to switch from 5-6 books (hanafi) to 2 books of fiqh (shafi'i)?
