I have some question based on the following hadith from Sahih Muslim:
One who withdraws his band from obedience (to the Amir) will find no argument (in his defence) when he stands before Allah on the Day of Judgment, and one who dies without having bound himself by an oath of allegiance (to an Amir) will die the death of one belonging to the days of Jahillyya.
Based on this:
- Is it obligatory for every muslim to follow an Imam ?
- How to know who to consider as imam ?
- Does the four mujtahid (Imam Abu Hanifa RA, Imam Malik RA, Imam Shafii RA and Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal) says anything about the above questions ?
