There's an intellectually faulty attitude that I occasionally encounter with some Muslims.
It's beyond evident, that whatever opinion or claim of truth we encounter, should be in some way or the other provable/verifiable, be it a scientific claim, a news story, or a historical narrative, and perhaps the most specifically vital of all for us Muslims, rulings on the right interpretations of Quran and Sunnah.
To me, when the question of the right religious ruling or interpretation is at stake, especially when there are apparent conflicting or contradictory opinions among scholars of religion, a Muslim must no doubt find it imperative to objectively examine the arguments and proofs each side provide, if any, to support their positions.
But why is that this adherence to truth seems to be lacking or compromised among many Muslims. Are we supposed to just follow what past scholars told us without question? How even Islamic is that?
