Differing With The Majority Scholars

Question

Mr Ghamidi has different opinions on various matters like music and beard. I follow his views because of his sound arguments. However, a question comes in my mind that I am rejecting majority opinion for one person's opinions Is it logical? Please clarify.


Answer

We believe that after the Prophet (sws) no individual or group is immune to error. The views of the scholars is accepted or rejected on the basis of arguments from the basic sources of the religion. We may abandon a viewpoint for another sounder one. This decision should of course be based on knowledge and not bias.
