I was afforded the opportunity to enroll and study ifta studies under the tutelage of Hadrat Mufti Ebrahim Desai Sahib (d.b.). Only after embarking this journey under guidance of Hadrat Mufti Sahib did I realize how little of the vast ocean of fiqh I really understood. The complexness and comprehensiveness of the Ḥanafī Fiqh can slightly be perceived after completing the ifta program.
While studying under the Hadrat Mufti Sahib, I found his teachings to be not only a more profound understanding of fiqh, but found it to be implementation of the theoretical discussions of the Alimiyyah studies. He taught me how to execute the theoretic knowledge learned from classical books and how to link it with modern day issues. Hadrat Mufti Sahib teaches the students to analyze the issue from all angles, be moderate in the approach when answering an issue, and keep the background and lifestyle of different individuals in mind. While being moderate and finding ease for the masses, the student should not forfeit what he stands for. The experience of Hadrat Mufti Sahib throughout the years of answering Islamic verdicts and travelling abroad is priceless. The effect of his services to Islam is hidden to none.
It brings me great honor to welcome you to the Darul Ifta website. May Allah benefit the ummah through the services of the website and grant us the ability to take maximum benefit from Hadrat Mufti Sahib, Amin.
