Following a particular Madh-hab

Q 2: Is it obligatory for every Muslim to follow a particular Madh-hab (School of Jurisprudence) only ? (Part No. 4; Page No. 14

A: It is not permissible for a person who can know the rulings substantiated with evidence to fanatically adhere to a particular Madh-hab. Rather, they should follow any of the Mad-habs of Ahl-ul-Sunnah (adherents to the Sunnah) as long as it establishes the evidence. Anyone who cannot know the rulings substantiated with evidence should refer to the people of knowledge and piety. Allah (Exalted be He) says: So ask the people of the Scripture, if you do not know. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions.
