The Issue of Taqleed (Blind-Following)


The word taqleed is a derivative of Qalaadah, and the linguistic meaning of
qalaadah is to wear a collar that a dog wears around its neck. The meaning of taqleed in terminology is to act upon the opinion of an Imaam from the Ummah without knowing the evidence. So the muqallid is the one who does taqleed.
