The View Of The Majority Of Scholars On Hypothetical Fiqh Issues


1) If Zayd Ibn Thaabit (ra) would be asked regarding an issue, he would first ask, “Has it occurred?” And if they answered no, he would say, “Then leave it until it occurs.

2) ‘Abdul Maalik Ibn Mirwaan asked Ibn Shihaab about a matter and the latter asked, “Did this happen O leader of the believers?

He said, “No.

So Shihaab answered, “Then leave it, for when it comes to pass, Allaah will give us a way out.

3) On one occasion when Imaam Maalik was ased about an issue he gave the answer to his students, but when one of his students said, “Suppose that it occurred in this way.

Imaam Maalik became very angry and said, “Are you one of the ‘Supposers’? Did you come here from Iraaq?

4) Ash-Sha’bee said, “Nothing was more hated to me than ‘suppose’.”

5) Imaam Maalik once said, “People used to give verdicts only for what they heard and knew, and the talk that is prevalent among people today did not exist.

By this, he was referring to the many hypothetical issues that were being discussed.
