Q: I am a hanafi but I don’t know I’m getting these kind of questions about mathabs for so many weeks now, like for example, why am I supposed to read salaah if I’m a hanafi when its 10+ days of haydh and I’m not supposed to if I’m a Shaafi or like why would I be a sinner if I didn’t read salaah before Shaafi times end and and I’m not a sinner and I dont have to read qadha if im a Hanafi
1. I fail to understand why there are so many masaail that contradict each other so why do they?
2. Is qiyaas from sunnah?
1. Allah will not ask you about these things. The mazhab that you have accepted and preferred, move with it and continue with your life. Don’t let your mind run in areas that do not concern you.
2. It is also proven from the sunnat.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
