Q: I have heard that taqleed is only in 10% of Islam. Is it true? If yes then what is that 10% of Islam in which taqleed is required?
A: Taqleed is applicable in all aspects of fiqh. And fiqh governs your entire life because the meaning of fiqh is ma`rifatun nafs maa lahu wa maa`alayha.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
