Dear, All Imaams spent their valuable efforts and derivied issues coming out after the departure of the Prophet in the light of Quraan and Hadith. As people think diffrently they also thought diffrently and came up with thier valuable opinions consering to be true. All these issuse are minors as the basic fundamentals of Islam remain the same. every body is able to comprehend all Islamic teachings without going through them deeply and after learning their principles. therefore it is unanimous decision of Ummah to follow one of them as they have described the hadiths and Quraan lest the people may not derive their own desireable meaning. AS one person was saying that Quraan says (La Taqrabussalah) do not go near to Salah (Namaz) but he does not read the complete verse (Wa-antum Sukara) while you are intoxicate. This verse is talking about the period when wine was not prohibitted completely and later it was banned in Ilslam. WE have understand the context and whole background of the Aya ...more

Sabhi Imam haq par hein ikhtilaaf sirf fiqahi masaail mein hein sabhi ki sanad huzoor s.a.w. se milti he isliye namaaz mein imam koi bhi maslak ka ho usko follow karna chahiye. Ikhtelaafaat mein bhi khair aur hikmat he. yeh bhi Islam ki ek khoobi he

let me tell u that all the 4 imams came into the pictuer more than 200yrs after the death of holy prophet. and if u ask any maulana he will tell u following any imam is justified as all 4 of them are right, eventhough there is vast diff btw their methods.
Also prophet mohd (saw) has stated "mere baad islam me 73 firkhe ayenge n usme se sirf 1 jannat me jayega" he did not mention 4 jannat me jayenge. then how can 4 of them be right though they have diff among them even in the method of offering namaz, one of the obligatory acts.

all the 4 imams brother have well researched in the field of salaah and have put forth their opinions regarding it. and to say morover they have immensely studied the sayings of prophet muhammed(pbuh).so my comment would be that there is no such thing as that you should not follow any of imams.so you can pray salaah behind any of the imams,
.if I have mistaken then it is from me.

The leading person is always Hazrat Mohammed (SAW).The one imitating him can make a mistake in understanding him.So its ok to follow an Imam but you must understand Islam and its motives and with clarification of every act u must follow them. u must never blindly follow any one
