AL-MUHALLA المحلى IBN HAZM – RULINGS ONLY – ZAHIRI FIQH

Today, the average Muslim in the West earns his living by having an ordinary job. He is unable to find time to study the Arabic Language to be capable to comprehend Allah’s orders from Quran and Sahih Hadith. So, he finds himself compelled to follow one of the schools of Fiqh.

The choice is sometimes difficult because they are all human and had done their best to learn and teach what they believe was proper Fiqh. Due to that we say thet the safest School is the one in closest adherance to the Quran and Hadith.

I am a Hanbali in Fiqh, but the Dhahiri “Zahiri” school of thought, which was founded by Imam Abu Dawoud Alasfahany (202 A.H) which was adopted and revised by Imam Ali Bin Hazm (348 A.H) of Andalusia is the closest to the literal interpretation of the Ahadith. … More AL-MUHALLA المحلى IBN HAZM – RULINGS ONLY – ZAHIRI FIQH

Ibn Hazm put it concisely when he said,

“Ruling upon an object is upon what it is named (what it is), if the name (what it is) changes then so does the ruling.”

He also mentioned in his book of fiqh, Al-Muhalla: “If the quality of the substance of naturally impure objects changes the name which was given to it so that it is no more applicable to it and it is given a new name which is given to a pure object, so it is no more an impure thing. It becomes a new object, with a new rule.” … More IS GELATIN HARAM – WHAT IS ISTIHALA
