Understanding the Current Affairs Fiqh-Al-Waaqi
Shaikh Al-Albaani said regarding this matter of Fiqh-Al-Waaqi
What must be addressed here is that: the Fiqh [understanding of Islâmic affairs], that is required from the Muslims is not just restricted to the four schools of thought; also it is not the Fiqh [understanding of Islâmic affairs], which some of the youths that are on the field of Da’wah [Islâmic call], call to.
This is because the juristic issues that are Fard [obligatory] upon the Muslims both the Fard Kifiyah [collective ones] and the Fard Ayn [individual ones], are bigger and more extent than the aforementioned Fiqh [understanding of the four schools of thoughts]. From among the Fiqh [understanding of Islâmic affairs] that must be acquired is: “Having understanding of the Book [Qur’ân],” “Having knowledge of the Sunnah,” “Having understanding of the language [Arabic],” “Having the knowledge of the human being and the universe,” and “Having the knowledge of differences of opinion” and the likes. These types of Fiqh [understanding of Islâmic affairs]; are no less important than the aforementioned Fiqh [jurisprudence] and those are the four schools of thought or the Fiqh [of the current affairs], which is the subject matter of this book.
