Question ID: 17442

Assalamu alaykum Mufti sahab
I asked a question # 17343 . I got your answer now i have few more questions related to that topic.
1- You mentioned that after Darse Nizami one would have to do additional specialization in fiqh( mufti course) in order to be qualified to issue fatwa.However, if we look at Akaabireen like Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi,Maulana Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi etc , books have been compiled of their fatawa and yet they were not Muftis. What is the reason that in the Akaabireen’s time being a Maulana was sufficient whereas now it is necessary to be a Mufti to issue fatwa?

2- If a student , upon completing Darse Nizami, want to gain expertise in all four madhabs.So how should he do that?Is it even possible? The reason I am asking is that all the Deobandi madaris I know of , only teach the Hanafi madhab in the Mufti course.

3- In your knowledge, have there been any Ulama/Muftiyaan from among the Ulama-e-Deoband , from the time of Maulana Qasim Nanotvi uphill present day, who had expertise in all four madhabs and were able to issue fatawa according to all four madhabs?

1) Their education level was of such a level that let alone been Muftis, they were teachers of Muftis.
2) Then sit with those very same honourable teachers who will teach ‘Ifta’ as per the other Mazhabs.
3) Most where able to do so on request and many Darul Iftas unto this day still do so.
