    What is the history of the four school of thoughts?

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    The four schools of thought in jurisprudence goes back to the time after the Companions and Successors, wherein expert Islamic jurists codified Islamic law to help the masses be guided in their daily practices. All the four schools of jurisprudence agree on the fundamental matters such as belief in One God and life after death. There are acceptable difference of opinion that do occur amongst the four schools based on interpretation of source texts.

    And Allah knows best.
