Ijtihad Tnzili (concept - elements - origins)

Abstract

The concept of ijtihad was previously limited to ijtihad in devising judgment. The first person who spoke about it in the application of the ruling is Imam al-Shati, and the diligence of exerting effort in seeking judgment. There is no doubt that the fundamentalists and their writings are absent from the attention of the fundamentalists and their writings. There are only sporadic references to some of the fundamentalist works.
