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


Fiqh, The Legal Status of Following a Madhab

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)
