Following one's superiors is but natural

This is so obvious that no explanation is needed for this.  Every person turns to his/her superior in need and trusts the superior’s judgment and the same happens in Taqleed (following any one of the 4 great Imams viz. Imam Abu Hanifa, Imam Malik, Imam Shafa‘ee and Imam Ahmed Bin Hambal), in which because of the inherent harm of following one’s own judgment, one turns towards the Mujtahid (lit. The legislator), in whom one sees the ability of extraction of laws.  In a way, Taqleed is the nature of man and man cannot run away from Taqleed.  For this reason, the whole Islamic world since the earliest ages, have considered any of the 4 Imams as their leader.  After this brief introduction, the necessity of Fiqh and the compulsory nature of Taqleed will be dealt with in the light of the Holy Quran and the Hadith.
