Description

This chapter presents the group’s stance on jurisprudence, sources and interpretation. Jurisprudence is continuously present, regardless of the theme in focus of lectures. The chapter shows how imitation of the juridical schools (taqlīd) is rejected, but that there still are a lot of references to the founders of the Sunni juridical schools. The chapter illustrates in detail how the group relates to the Islamic law and the schools of law, and illuminates the view on authority and interpretation further.
