Alhamdulillah,I take this good opportunity to say my opinion about MADHAB,to my point of view following madhab is also an sect in islam bcoz the true believer is the one who believes the following things
Belief in Allah Subhanah
Belief in all His appointed Messengers
Belief in all His Revealed Books
Belief in the Angels
Belief in the concept of the Hereafter
Belief in the Divine ?Qadr? or Decree of Allah Subhanah.
so the madhabs and Imam Shafei, Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Malik, Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal, and all the other great scholars of Islam did not come with a new religion,so following the HOLY QURAN and SUNNAH of our beloved prophet muhammed(saw) is islam and not madhab and imams
Am i right?is there any difference of opinion here???????
you are wrong. Our prophet (saws) said follow after me the rightly guided caliphs
and those who are after them and also the ones who learn from my companions. The mazhab imams have learned islam by refering to the living companions at that time. I dont understand that you can say that they never existed you deny them you deny your prophet(saws) estafirallah estafirallah
May Allah guide you (amin)
