Re: English-only Madhab followers...where do you get your fiqh from?

For Maliki Fiqh, Sh. Suhaib Webb has started a Maliki Fiqh series on his website.

For Shaf'i Fiqh, I've been reading Reliance of the Traveler, and I say it's pretty decent if you stick with the translated book itself ('uddat as-salik, not the introductory chapters and appendices). I still wouldn't recommend it to people who haven't taken LOG, LUL, and/or Code of Evolution.
So it's not all bad, in fact, one of the introductory chapters is a nice mini-review of Code of Scholars.

Na'am. It can be found in English online (not sure if it's the whole thing or not). I've attached a word document of it in English if anybody wants it (it's a copy/paste from the site that has it).

So, he said: “O Allah! Forgive ‘A’ishah her past and future sins, what she has hidden, as well as what she has made apparent.”

So, I began smiling, to the point that my head fell into the lap of the Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam out of joy.

The Messenger of Allah said to me: “Does my supplication make you happy?”

I replied: “And how can your supplication not make me happy?”

He then said: “By Allah, it is the supplication that I make for my Ummah in every prayer.”

Re: English-only Madhab followers...where do you get your fiqh from?

Assalam alaykum,

Following a mathab on your own is difficult, and if your doing it in english...fo get bout it. The more you learn the more you realize there are so many answers to the same question. Shaykh Muhammad Shareef said in his Usool al fiqh class: that it is the shuyokh who follow a mathab, not the laymen. The layman needs a shaykh for guidance in fiqh issues because many issues have 3 or 4 or more opinions. So how can a layperson determine which answer is the best or strongest?

The books you do read should be a way of expanding your knowledge base, but not as a final say in your opinion for the most part.

Not to go off topic, but here's your answer 3752. Start a new thread if you wish, but I would imagine there already is one on this thread. Also info about this was mentioned at ilm summit. So go find a student who has some good notes on the Aqeedah class from the summit.

jazakAllahukhair. I completely agree with you. There is a VERY thorough and good read on this very subject (as well as making careless fatawa from the lips of someone like myself) that can be found in this thread (and on the net).
