Maslak e Aala Hazrat Ikhtilaaf From Aala Hazrat

"The ikhtilaf of those who breach the Ijma’ (consensus) of Muslims is thrown back in their faces. Nothing of Maslak e A’la Hazrat shall be ruined and nothing of A’la Hazrat shall be ruined. He who breaches it will himself be determined to be against Maslak e A’la Hazrat. And there are some people who have to fulfil their whims and act upon leniency. A’la Hazrat has maintained the identity of true Hanafiyyah. The ‘Ulama’ have settled the issue that you are performing Taqleed of Imam e A’zam. The method of Taqleed is that [you] bow your head [and follow blindly]. We are not on the station that was the station of Imam e A’zam. He was a Mujtahid. Leave Imam e A’zam, we are not of the rank of Imam Muhammad and Imam Abu Yusuf who were Mujtahids fi al-Madhhab. And even below them, going far down from them, we are not even on the station that [we know] which qawl (statement) is sahih (correct), which is da’eef (weak), which is rajih (preferred), which is marjooh (preferred over). We do not have the capacity to determine this. 500 years ago, Imam ‘Ala’ al-Din Haskafi settled the matter that:

أما نحن فعلينا اتباع ما صححوه وما رجحوه كما لو افتونا في حياتهم

Such unprincipled people who do not have the capacity to distinguish between sahih and da’eef - who are merely Muqallids - it is binding upon them to act upon those aqwal that have been declared sahih by their Masha’ikh; let alone issuing Fatawa against it, to act against that oneself is not permissible.

Those who speak of ikhtilaf are such that they are doing ikhtilaf for the whims of their nafs. And I have shown that this ikhtilaf is not with A’la Hazrat but it is ikhtilaf with Sunniyyah in some cases; with Ijma’ of the Ummah in some cases; and it is simply following one’s whims in some cases."

- Taajush Shari'ah Mufti Akhtar Rida Khan
