Was Imaam Bukhaaree A Blind Follower Of One Of The Four Madhhabs? By Sh. Mashhoor

Shaykh Mashhoor states:

“I mentioned to you that Ibn Hajr in Fath Al-Baaree examined the madhhab of Imaam bukhaare who, like others form his brethren such as Muslim and As-haab Us-Sunnah were all from Ahlul Hadeeth.

Look at their biographies in the books of Tabaqaat of the fuqahaa and you will find that the Shaafi’ees branded Al-Bukhaaree, Muslim and Aboo Daawood as Shaafi’ees; while the Hanbalees branded tham as Hanbalees; the Hanafees branded them as Hanafees; and the Maalikees branded them as Maalikees!

This is on account of their Madhhab fanaticism. If they were able to brand Aboo Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthmaan, ‘Alee and the Companions as being upon their madhhab too, they would even do that!

However, when Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajr investigated the Madhhab of Imaam Bukhaaree he stated, “The Madhhab of Al-Bukhaaree is taken via agreement and not taqleed (blind following)“.”
