Multiplicity of correct opinions regarding the same issue
Can there be more than one correct opinion regarding the same issue?
If scholars of Shari`ah (Islamic law) differ over a matter, the truth remains one and cannot be multiple; only one answer is correct. This is because the Religion of Allah is one, which He revealed in His Book and sent down to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). So, anyone who reaches the correct opinion after exerting effort shall have a double reward, and anyone who errs shall have one reward for exercising Ijtihad (juristic effort to infer expert legal rulings), not for making a mistake.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
