Ikhtilaf – I
In the previous post, we introduced the topic of Differences of Opinions. We listed the four ways of categorizing these differences. In this post, we will look at the first category: Differences due to interpretation of word meanings and grammatical constructions. Within this category, we have several sub categories: Shared literal meanings/Equivocality/Homonym (Ishtirak): An example of this would be the word “qur” which means menses as well as the time of purity between menses.
