The Fifth Madhhab
May 6, 2015 | No Comment

Mufti Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf discusses the propaganda of this age of abandoning the four schools of thought and opting for a modern methodology of following the Qur’an and sunnah directly. He explains how the pseudo-salafi movement is in reality a reattempt at devising a new school of thought which though may seem appealing in theory, lacks any validity in practicality, especially when put into contrast with the unanimous validity of the existing four schools. A thorough discussion, broken down into a very easily understandable explanation on how fallacious the re-inventing of the wheel in Islamic scholarship is, enumerating just how nobody truly goes back to the Qur’an and sunnah as ultimate sources but rather creating a “fifth madhab” which has no real basis; especially as it contradicts the very principles that it is based upon. A must watch for any Muslim who is sincere about finding the truth in these testing times.
