Almighty Allah says:
“Whoever cuts himself off from the Messenger after the right path has become clear to him, and follows other than the way of the Relievers, We shall let him have what he chooses, and We shall admit him to Jahannam, which is an evil place to return.” (4:115)
“The consensus of the Muslims has been established upon the obligation (Wujub) of following one of the four Imams today.” Imam Ahmad al-Nafrawi (12 th Century AH) in Al-Fawdkih al- Dawdni

INTRODUCTION

whether A person should follow one of the four schools or not is an issue that has created much confusion amongst Muslims today. It is hoped this short treatise will serve to dispel much of the misinformation found about this issue and furnish the details for why the Four schools (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i and Hanbali) have such a central role in Sunni Islam.
Some key additions have been made to this second edition of the book. Several clear statements establishing Ijma (consensus) of the Umma upon the taqlid of the four Imams have been now included. Similarly, a word has been added about our responsibility in the UK as ambassadors of Islam. Another addition is the appraisal of some of the texts often cited to argue against taqlid.
Due to the importance of this subject, the booklet is being distributed freely and no copyright exists preventing those who wish to reprint it from doing so. May Allah jj^f, accept this effort and reward all those who helped in any way in its production. Ameen.
