This is exactly whats happening today.
In this lecture Sheikh Abdur Raheem gives an account of how Maulana Amin Safdar Okarvi went from being a Salafi to a Hanafi and the 6 points he was taught as a salaf
what the salafis say, is that experts are not ma'suum.
In the west, doctors have told women their unborn children were dead, she questioned this and then it came out alive. The doctors had offered medication to remove it that wud have killed it. Doctors misdiagnose cancer and all sorts.
Experts can make costly mistakes in all fields including religion.
We still need ulema and should love and respect them, but dont believe they are ma'suum or all knowing or infallible.
To highlight a point, your deobandi scholars follow oppinions that imam abu hanifa rh never held. Does this mean they are more knowledgable? Or that imam abu hanifa rh had some mistakes? Or do u wish to follow imam abu hanifa rh 100% in which case, i can quote you many things which you do that goes against his oppinions.
May Allah Bless You
there is another group that says the same lines, yet are not labelled as salafi. people like to call them modernists as they do not go too much into aqeedah. yet the usool of fiqh adopted by them is the same. they reach different conclusions as the salafis yet their conclusions are derived in the same way.
shaykh abdul hakeem murad with all due respect is a pure modernist who has questioned the rulings of the scholars on many occasions including the issue of the niqab which he is a vocal critic of, the penalty for apostacy, declaring the british raj as darul islam etc. He should pay more heed to his own words than anybody else. What I find shocking is that deobandis are putting him up the mimbar when his views are actually worse than salafis. This is on top of his praising hisham kabbani's quote on national TV that the majority i.e. he put the figure somewhere around 80-90% of american masjids are run by terrorists as well as his praise for the great kafir aga khan etc. Brother ahmed I will tackle your very recent anti-salafi posts another time but suffice to say that those who you labelled as salafis are not even salafis the likes of al muhajiroon etc who make takfir of mufti bin baz rh. If you want to see a person who represents salafis please come to london and meet shaykh haitham al haddad db.
you should know sheikh qardawi is never labelled a 'modernist' yet gulen is. even though both hold pretty much the same opinions on music.
food for thought.
