I am brought up in a Shafi Madhab environment. I do my level best to keep my wudu at all times. However this becomes difficult for me as I am married and my wife tends to have skin contact with me frequently and due to that I have to keep renewing my Wudu. There is no sexual intent in this skin contact
For a year now I switched to Hanafi Madhab to keep my wudu whenever my wife have skin contact with me but I realize I do not have sufficient knowledge on Hanafi Madhab and I am praying my Asr I based on internet timing as Azan in my country is done following Shafi Madhab.
Kindly advise me as I am concern I am doing something not appropriate. I am afraid I am not EVEN following Hanafi Madhab properly although that is my intention. Thanks
wa `alaykum salam,
We are advising you to adhere to Shafi Madhab as you know that school of thought already. The Hanafi Madhab is not easy to follow either.
If you have learned a madhab already then the default is that you follow it.
