Chapter 05 TAQLEED OF INDIVIDUAL IN TIMES OF SAHABAH AND TABI’EEN Part 4


Fiqh, The Legal Status of Following a Madhab / Monday, August 18th, 2008

Amr ibn Maymoon al-Awdi said that Sayyidina Mu’az Ibn Jabal went to them in Yemen as the Prophet’s envoy. He said, “I heard his takbir in the Fajr salah. His voice was heavy and I naturally developed a love for him. Then, I did not separate from him till he died. I buried him in Syria. Then I looked for the next greatest jurists and came to lbn Masood and stayed with him till he died. (Abu Dawood v1 p26, Ahmed v5 p231)

Sayyidina Amr ibn Maymoon stayed first with Sayyidina Mu’az ibn Jabal and then with Sayyidina Ibn Mas’ood to learn the issues of fiqh. Thus, it is a clear example of making taqleed of one man at one time (taqleed of an individual).
