Such a particular problem of legal principle cannot be solved without context.
6) Issue A is a Ijmayi matter. Issue B is a new matter but similar enough to do Qiyas on this Ijmayi issue. Can there be difference of opinion on issue B. One group says it's an Ijmayi issue and therefore whoever differs is sinful and Group B keep saying it's a new matter and therefore difference of opinion is accepted. Who is right?
1) Is every difference of opinion in matters of fiqh accepted?
2) What if there are two stances, and one stance is clearly stronger than the other. Is it still allowed for the layman to follow any stance?
3) Is every scholar entitled to have his own opinion on a matter? Will this be ruled as valid difference of opinion as long as he has done some research on the topic concerned?
4) When will a man be sinful for having his own opinion on a ruling?
5) If Scholar A does research on matter X and gives a fatwa according to his research, then scholar B refutes his research and his arguments, is Scholar A still allowed to stand by his Fatwa even after it has been refuted elegantly?
