Opinion FromOpinionExplanation
Imam Abu Hanifa,Imam MalikIs it obligatory that the intention of the follower conform with the intention of the imam.In the Narration of Abu Huraira, general implication includes intention as well and the narration of Muadh was specific to the case of Muradh
Imam ShafiIntentions can be differentPermission granted to Muradh extends to all the believers, which is the principle. There can be two possible interpretations of the Narration of Abu Huraira: first, that its general implication does not include intention, for its apparent meaning relates to (external) acts, in which case it would not conflict with Muradh’s tradition; or it may include intention, in which case Muadh’s tradition has restricted the generality
