Thanks for your kind comments. I’ll appreciate if you can introduce yourself in detail.
As I’ve conducted comparative study of different sects and schools of thought, I’ve found that all of them a product of human effort for understanding the truth. Man can try his best to understand and follow the truth but he and his products can never be perfect. Therefore, it is not possible at all that a particular sect is on the right path in all aspects and in all issues. On one issue, one sect may be on the right path and on another issue, other one may be true.
Based on my study of sects during last three decades, I’ve concluded that one should keep his mind open. He should study all points of view on a particular issue without any bias or inclination towards a particular one, compare the arguments of all of them with each other and select the point of view having the strongest arguments from the Quran, the Hadith and common sense. It is possible that we find one school of thought correct on one issue and other school of thought right on another issue. After reaching at a conclusion, we should keep ourselves open for any change if we find any mistake at a later stage in our previous effort.
It is not correct to term Hanafi, Shafii etc. as sects. They are mere different schools of thought in the field of Jurisprudence. It is similar to the schools of thought in area of science, economics and sociology. We should apply the procedure of comparative study to them in case of any significant differences.
I did not understand the phrase “the one who does not follow any faith?” If you mean atheists then they could never be on the right path because they deny the very basic truth of existence of God. Each object in this universe and its organized position is pronouncing vehemently that it has a Creator and Sustainer. You can read any book of science to observe the organization in this universe.
