    Furthermore al-‘Allamah Ibn al-Humam (Allah show mercy to him) says in Fath al-Qadir: “The fact that a person follows what is easier upon himself from the statement of a mujtahid capable of ijtihad, I’m not aware that the sacred law has disparaged him from it, and he (Allah send peace and blessings upon him) used to like that which made ease for his nation.” (6/360)
    Al-Imam al-Nawawi (Allah show mercy to him) said in al-Rawdah: “Only that which its disapproval has been agreed upon can be disapproved, as for that which is differed upon then there is no disapproval of it because every mujtahid is correct or only one is correct which we are not aware of.” (10/219)
    Al-Qadi ‘Iyyad (Allah show mercy to him) mentions in Ikmal al-Mu’lim: “The one who commands good and forbids evil shouldn’t impose the ijtihad of his school upon people, rather he only changes that which its disapproval and innovation has been agreed upon.” (1/289)
