 If the Imams of the four schools [madhahib] established all of their rulings from the Qur'an and the Sunna, why have they differed on so many points? How can two authentic narrations from the Messenger of Allah appear to contradict one another? When is it acceptable for Muslims to differ over religious matters? What did the Messenger mean when he said, "The differences of my Umma are a source of mercy?"

Using examples from the Messenger of Allah , his Companions, and their Followers, The Differences of the Imams answers these puzzling questions in a thorough and concise manner. In a clear and lucid style, the author illustrates the various ways in which different narrations seem to contradict one another and how the Companions and the Imams of jurisprudence have reconciled these apparent differences. This work is an excellent resource for anyone seeking to better understand some of the deeper issues of hadith and jurisprudence: how these two disciplines come together to form the basis of Islamic law [Shari'a], why it is necessary to follow a school of Islamic law, and what the basic principles of hadith scholarship are.

Praise of the Author from Distinguished Scholars

€œShaykh and honorable Imam; jurist and noble scholar of hadith; fragrant flower of India and Arabia; master of spiritual realities [haqiqa] and allusions [majaz]; our leader and our blessing (from Allah).€ -Shaykh 'Abd al-Fattah Abu Ghudda, Halab, Syria

€œIt is evident to one who takes a look at his works that he had a brilliancy, both in knowledge and with the pen, like that of Ibn al-Jawzi and Imam Ghazali. Of the scholars of his era, I know of no one comparable to him in this regard, except Imam 'Abd al-Hayy al-Farangi Mahalli (of Lucknow).€ -Sa'id Ahmad Akbarabadi, Aligarh, India

€œMorally outstanding, hadith scholar, remnant of the predecessors and splendor of the successors, blessed Imam, caller to Allah, my master and my teacher: Shaykh Muhammad Zakariyya.€ -Sayyid Muhammad Ibn 'Alawi al-Maliki, Madina Munawwara

References for the hadith quoted prepared by Shaykh Ni'matullah of Dar al-Ulum Deoband and graciously provided by Turath Publishing.

Masha'allah I think that every muslim should read this book to be able to understand the different rulings of the madhhabs. Now I'm proud for following a madhab. I really recommend this book. If you are going to buy this, you may buy 1 more for your friends ;) Assalamu aleikum

One of the best books you will ever read!!
I am honored that Allah Subhana Wa Ta'ala has given me the opportunity to read this most excellent piece of work. We have much ignorance in the Muslim Ummah on why we have to follow the Mathhabs and the reasons for it. This book, though short(and you will see what I mean when you read), is enough to satisfy those who wish an answer to the 2 questions.
