Aberrant Opinion in Islamic Jurisprudence and Ruling on Following it

You have stated in some fatwas on your website that it isn`t permissible to deliver fatwas based on aberrant opinions. Could you clarify what you mean by "Aberrant opinion"? And whether not following the four Madhabs (Schools of thought) is an aberrant opinion or not, because some Muslim countries follow the opinion of Ibn Taymyah who considers three divorces in one sitting as only one valid divorce? Is this fatwa aberrant?

Offering Food to the Family of the Deceased is from Sunnah

We are members of a big Jordanian clan, and we have established a fund to meet its various financial obligations. Is it permissible to make a big banquet on behalf of a deceased relative, who participated in that fund, to all members of the clan although it costs a great deal of money. What is the most valid from an Islamic point of view as regard such banquet ?
