(Fatwa: 1705/1501=B)


Those who do not possess the requirements of ijtihad (deriving the solution of matters directly from Quran and Hadith) they must follow any imam from the Four Imams in istenbati (derivated) matters. Otherwise, Ghair Muqallidiat (not following any Imam) leads a man to atheism and disbelief according to Maulana Muhammad Hussain Sahib, the predecessor of Ghair Muqallideen.
