For those who are confused about ….

Imaam Shaafi’i (rahimahullaah) said:

1) “The sunnahs of the Messenger of Allah (saaws) reach, as well as escape from, every one of us. So whenever I voice my opinion, or formulate a principle, where something contrary to my view exists on the authority of the Messenger of Allah (saaws), then the correct view is what the Messenger of Allah (saaws) has said, and it is my view.”

[Related by Haakim with a continuous sanad up to Shaafi’i, as in Taareekh Dimashq of Ibn ‘Asaakir (15/1/3), I’laam al-Mooqi’een (2/363, 364) & Eeqaaz (p. 100).]

2) .”Every statement on the authority of the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alaihiwasallam) is also my view, even if you do not hear it from me.”

{IbnAbiHaatim (pp. 93-4)

3) Follow it (the Sunnah), and do not look sideways at anyone else’s saying.”

{Harawi in Dhamm al-Kalaam (3/47/1), Khateeb in Al-Ihtijaaj bi ash-Shaafi’i (8/2), Ibn ‘Asaakir (15/9/10), Nawawi in Al- Majmoo’ (1/63), Ibn al-Qayyim (2/361) &Fulaani (p. 100); the second narration is from Hilyah al-Awliyaa’ of Abu Nu’aim}
