Mufti Rasheed Ahmed Ludhianvi

Question ID: 19450

Assalam Alaikum Mufti Sahab
I am sure you are aware of Mufti Rasheed Ahmad Ludhianvi (R.A) of Karachi,Pakistan .
I used to read the fatawa of Mufti Rasheed,finding them to be beneficial.Then I found out that while Mufti Rasheed is respected by Ulama e Haq, even senior ulama have pointed out that he was very strict in his fatawa and would oppose the majority view i.e he was unnecessarily strict.
One Alim even said that Mufti Rasheed’s fatawa have an effect of his strict tabiyaat(nature) and oppose the masaail as understood by the Ummat’s ulama at large.
In urdu,one Mufti sahib praised Mufti Rasheed but then commented,” Ahsanul Fatawa mein baaz masaail afsosnaak hain”.
This made me have doubts as to whether Mufti Rasheed was following the Hanafi fiqh in his fatawa or not,and whether his fatawa were correct or not.

Your comments would be appreciated.

Those that say that he moved away from the general main stream of Hanafi Fiqh should point in which ‘masali’.
We can then investigate and comment. We know him as a reliable Hanafi Alim.
