Becoming a Mufti

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I wanted to know how one can become a mufti in islam? Can a mufti issue fatwa of his own? Is he only allowed to issue fatwa by refferring to Hadith and Qur’an?


A: These are all sciences that have to be acquired from people that have specialised in these fields. Once you become a mufti you will understand this. All their fatawa are based on the Qur’aan and hadeeth.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
