In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
“Nothing is the life of this world but play and amusement, but best is the Home in the Hereafter, for those who are righteous, will you not then understand?” (6:32)

Taqleed / Madhaahib

Why do we follow a Madhab and why only one? Why not all four? Isn't it shirk to blindly follow a Madhab? Shouldn't we be following the Qur'an and Hadith? What is Taqleed?

These and many more questions need answers. In today's climate of diverse personal opinions and the emergence of various fitnah, it is imperative to have knowledge of the basic tenets of our Beliefs, the Aqeedah of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah (i.e. the followers of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wasallam and his illustrious Companions) which is the mainstream, majority Sunni group.
