Summary of the lecture clip:

"Our weakness is that sometimes instead of consulting scholars, we do research independent of the guidance of an expert, and arrive at incorrect conclusions. If a person approaches scholars for guidance, he protects himself from being led astray. If a person accidentally falls into misguidance, he should approach a scholar, so that the matter becomes clear to him.

Of all the months of the year, the month of Ramadan is the most blessed. Similarly, of the seven days of the week, Friday is the most blessed day. Of the 24 hours in a day, the time of the predawn prayer is the most blessed. The predawn prayers play an important role in a person's tarbiyah (spiritual reform).

Apart from what is already mentioned in the Quran and Hadith, Shariah does not permit us to mark out months, days, or hours as blessed based solely on our whims and fancies."

The brilliance of Maulana Muhammad Ilyas Ghumman (HA) of Sargodha, Pakistan

A student asked Maulana Ghumman (HA) if ijma (consensus) was a valid principle of jurisprudence. Maulana (HA) answered that it was. The student asked for daleel. Maulana (HA) replied that Imam Shafi (RA) quoted the Quran (4:59) as a basis for ijma. Then the student asked, "How do we know that verse 4:59 is from the Quran?" Maulana (HA) replied that it is based on ijma. The student said that this is circular reasoning, and hence it is invalid. If ijma is based on the Quran, and the Quran is based on ijma, it is a circular reasoning fallacy.

Maulana's (HA) answer was fantastic.

I'll let our members stew over this and try and guess Maulana's (HA) response before I answer in the next post.

(Ulama and non-Ulama who have studied mantiq/logic will immediately spot the weakness in the argument here.)

EDIT: Terminology corrected.

How do you know that you are your mother's son or that your father is your father? :)

Hint: One needs to know the difference between an "argument" and a "proof" to be able to understand Maulana's (HA) response.

This looks like the Urdu video clip in which the Maulana discusses ijma and the Quran.
