by Hazrat Maulana Yunus Patel Saheb
want Islamic law to conform to our liking, so much
so that we will find some Fatwa (Islamic ruling)
to justify our actions.The
ordinary laymen, and so too, many who are highly
qualified in the secular field, read the Qur`aan
Shareef and authentic Hadeeth kitaabs such as
Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, and find some Ayah
(verse) or Hadeeth to justify their actions.Often,
the Ayah or Hadeeth is taken out of context and
expounded to justify grave and major sins.
Ayah and Hadeeth has an explanation and commentary.
If there was no need for explanations, we would
not have had Allama Sayyid Mahmood Baghdadi (rahmatullahi
alaih), Ibn Katheer (rahmatullahi alaih) and other
Mufassireen (commentators of the Qur`aan Shareef),
or Hafez Asqalani (rahmatullahi alaih), Mulla Ali
Qaari (rahmatullahi alaih) and other Muhadditheen
 writing volumes in commentary.
