There, he was taught for many years by the famous Imam Malik ibn Anas, who was impressed with his memory, knowledge and intelligence. By the time of Imam Mālik’s death in 179 AH (795 CE), al-Shāfi‘ī had already gained a reputation as a brilliant jurist.
Why is it forbidden to follow more than one imam?
The reason for this approach is twofold: Firstly, the Holy Qur’an in a number of verses has emphatically ordered us to follow the Shariah, and has made it strictly prohibited to follow the personal desires vis a vis the rules of Shariah. The Muslim jurists, while interpreting the sources of Shariah never intend to satisfy their personal desires.
Where did al-Shafi’i develop his Madh Hab?
Al-Shāfi’ī traveled to Baghdad to study with Abu Hanifah’s acolyte al-Shaybānī and others. It was here that he developed his first madh’hab, influenced by the teachings of both Imam Abu Hanifa and Imam Malik. His work thus became known as “al Madhhab al Qadim lil Imam as Shafi’i,” or the Old School of al-Shafi’i.
