Have we Surpassed the Classical Scholars of Islām?

By Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwāmah

Translated by Muntasir Zamān

Some people claim:

Nowadays the available books of Sunnah are many and more easily accessible for contemporary researchers as opposed to earlier scholars. Furthermore, benefiting from such works have become a simpler task due to printing, various indexes, and computer programs. Thus, it is a simple task to rely on these works, accept what is proven, abandon what is not proven, establish those juristic rulings that are substantiated with evidence, and filter jurisprudence from unsubstantiated opinions.

There are several answers to this claim:

The following is a crucial and highly welcomed Fatwa passed in the Holy city of Makka al-Mukarrama in 1987 on the validity of following (taqlid) one of the Four Sunni Madhhabs (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i and Hanbali) with regards to Islamic rulings, as well as a warning to those who try to detract the common folk from this type of taqlid, and attack it in an odious way. It also warned against those who go to excesses in attempting to fanatically promote an anti-Taqlid stance and presumptuously attempt to re-interpret the Shar’ia especially when they have not reached any level of valid and recognised Ijtihad.
It is an essential Fatwa to show that not only is taqlid allowed and valid, but that also following false beliefs is harmful to Islam. It is also pertinent that the Fatwa mentioned that the main cause of the fitna (mischief) of abandoning the taqlid of the valid Schools of Sunni law has been coming from the hands of young Muslims who lack the tools to really understand in a painstaking way why difference of opinion (ikhtilaf) in jurisprudential rulings (fiqh) occurred, and why they are permitted if the foundational principles (Usul) are valid in the first instance. Valid usul has been noted in the Four Sunni Madhhabs and all of them recognise each other as valid interpretations of Islamic law while the diametric opposite has been witnessed in those who are outside these Four Sunni Madhhabs, especially so if the detractors are not recognised as high ranking jurisprudents (fuqaha) of the genre known as Mujtahids....

There are many online resources of religious books available on the internet, but first we must have to investigate that these resources are valid or not.
