Are there any true Mujtahids these days?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Jazakhallah Khair. Please see detailed notes. With reference to question 103 regarding Mujtahideen, you say “The Úlama of today do not qualify to be Mujtahids”. Yet I have seen the following about Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammed (who is the Amir of Al Muhajiroun). “He is quality of knowledge is a Mujjtahid Murajjih Juristic Scholars able to outweigh between the four Islamic Schools of thought: Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’ie and Hanbali.” Taken from: http://www.obm.clara.net/OBMHistory/biography.html I have heard that the Sheikh is very learned, what do you say about this statement bearing in mind your question 103. Jazakhallah Khair


We firmly believe that the contemporary Ulama do not qualify as Mujtahids.
