Schools Of Thought

Question

I wanted to know your views on different (legal) schools of through. Which school of Islam is on right path?


Answer

The sources of Islam, the Qur'an and the Sunnah, have been left for us in absolutely authentic form. Different scholars in the history of Islam have tried to understand the religion and present their understating. They do not differ over the basic sources, beliefs and practices. The differences occur in explanatory issues. They are academic rather than religious. Therefore, all of them are on the right path. It is not the question of truth and falsity. Rather it is the question of plausible and implausible explanation of a religious issue which divides the different schools of thought. We need not state that this school is on the true path and others are on the wrong and evil.
