Ruling on disagreement among the four Imams

Q: What is the correct view regarding the difference among the four leading Imams?


A: All Praise is due to Allah Alone and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, his family, and Companions. To commence: The juristic differences among the four Imams are based on the difference of their evaluation and degrees of knowledge and understanding. However, whoever is correct will have their reward doubled and whoever errs will have a single reward. Their mistakes are forgiven and the same applies to other Muslim scholars such as Al-Awza`y, Sufyan Al-Thawry, Is-haq ibn Rahawayh and their likes.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
