Taking guidance from the Ulama

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Does Allah teach human beings as he taught the son of Adam (alaihis salaam) how to bury a body from the crow? Is it permissible for a man to extract meanings from his surroundings like crows, birds, lizards, etc.? Many people, including my mother also does that, and the conclusion they reach comes out to be true. My mother then tells me that Allah is teaching me and making me learn.


A: As for matters of shariah then you need to gain the guidance of the shariah and deen through the means and mediums that are in place i.e. through the ulama and righteous people.

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