Imam al-Fulāni [d. 1218 AH] – The narrations obliging taking from where the Imams took from concern the Muqallid, because the Mujtahid Is qualified to exercise Ijtihad and is not limited to their verdicts.

The narrations binding the followers to take from where the Imams took from concern the Muqallid [follower] more, as for the Mujtahid, then they are not necessarily dependent on the verdicts of the Imams because they are qualified to exercise ijtihād.

Responses to the understanding that the follower is required to understand the daleel of the Imam before binding the fatwa of the Imam onto other individuals is usually that “it applies only to someone who is an adept Mujtahid, who displays a prowess in authentication of narrations” but that is contrary to reality; an impractical and irresponsible suggestion.
