Hanafi Mahdzab in Syafi’i mahdzab Majority
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
If the people of Indonesia adhere to the Shafee Madhab and you and your parents and family also follow the Shafee Madhab, you should continue adhering to the Shafee Madhab. It is not permissible to unnecessarily switch Madhabs and in your context, it may be impractical to adopt the Hanafi Madhab.
