Mufti Rasheed Ahmed Ludhianvi

Question ID: 19201

Assalamo alaikum
Mufti sahab,
As you know that Mufti Rasheed Ahmed Ludhianvi (alaih rahmah) who was the author of Ahsan ul Fatawa, was a famous and prominent Mufti of the Deobandi maslak.
I heard from one Pakistani Deobandi Mufti that Mufti Rasheed sahib erred in many of his fatawa, that he was too strict and that Ahsan ul Fatawa contains a considerable amount of fatawa which are incorrect.That Mufti said that the fatawa of Mufti Rasheed sahib are affected by his disposition/nature.
What is your view on this matter?
Are the fatawa of Mufti Rasheed sahib correct?Is Ahsan ul Fatawa a reliable book?

This was a great Aalim. He did have a firm and strict approach. He was fully in control of himself. Ahsan-ul-Fatawa is reliable. Every Mufti has some/few exceptions.
