The four schools of fiqh represent Muslim Madhabs [juristic schools]. These Muslim Madhabs are actually the com/pilations of the understanding of a particular Muslim scholar, and his followers, of the Shari`ah, i.e. the teachings of the Qur'an and the Sunnah and of derivations of that scholar, and his followers, based on that particular understanding of the Shari`ah. there is nothing sacrosanct about these Madhabs. They are actually a compilation of the understanding of humans, like ourselves, of the Qur'an and the Sunnah - humans who were not infallible and who never claimed to be so, humans whose opinions could contain both 'right' as well as 'wrong'.
