Do the decisions of the Islamic Fiqh Academy form a consensus of Muslim scholars?

Q: Consensus of opinions is one of the basic sources of legislation in Islam next only to the Glorious Qur'an and the Sunnah. Do the decisions of the Islamic Fiqh Academy in Makkah Al-Mukarramah form a consensus of Muslim scholars?


A: All Praise is due to Allah. May peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family, and Companions. To commence, the Islamic Fiqh Academy does not form a consensus of opinion, and the same applies to other similar organizations.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
