The source of doctrine should be taken from the Qur’an and the Sunnah, in the way they were understood by those who were companions to the Prophet . It is not a thing which can be determined by Ijtihad (3). This is not a matter of anyone’s opinion, considered or otherwise. The doctrines of Islam are taken directly
from Allah’s source of guidance, the Book and the Sunnah.
Our first source of doctrine is the Qur’an. This was revealed by Allah to His Prophet  who was the last of all the prophets. Our second source, after the Qur’an, is the Prophet’s Sunnah. Nothing else can compare with these two sources when we come to discover the doctrines of Islam. They reveal all that is permitted in terms of belief, and all that is forbidden.
(3) Ijtihad means to exert one’s effort by reasoning to differentiate right
from wrong.
