Imam Abu’l Hasanāt al-Luknawī al-Hanafi [d. 1886 CE] – “Whenever I chance upon groups differing, I find the view of the People of Hadith to be the most accurate.”

“Whoever views the matter impartially [without bias], and delves into the oceans of Fiqh and the principles of Fiqh – eluding deviation and straying [from the correct understanding] – they will ascertain, concerning the vast majority of subsidiary and fundamental matters the scholars differ in, that [the view of] the Madhab of the Muhaditheen [The People of Hadith] is stronger [and more accurate] than the views of the other Madhaahib [in these matters].

Whenever I chance upon groups differing, I find the view of the Muhaditheen [People of Hadith] to be the most accurate. How could they not be the most accurate [in these affairs] when they are the truly inheritors of the Prophet ﷺ and the representatives of his legislation?”
