What is the highest level of Islamic scholarship and how does one acquire it? Is it a mujtahid mutlaq? I hear many terms mujtahid mutlaq, mujtahid, Mufti, mufasir, muhadith etc
Wouldn’t you have to be a mujtahid mutlaq be a mufasir or a muhadith since you should know a lot of Hadith if you are going to write a thafsir or give verdicts.
Would people like syed Qutb and Abdullah Yusuf Ali be considered anything considering they were not scholars I believe yet they wrote thafsirs.
Many people do a 3 year degree at Islamic universities, what level of scholarship/title are they given?
And what type of study/how long do you typically need to get the various levels of scholarship?
