  1. The book ”The Four Imams And Their Schools” by Gibril Fouad Haddad, is a historical overview of the methodology of the four founders of the schools of Sunni jurisprudence (Abu Hanifa, Shafiʿi, Malik, Ahmad ibn Hanbal) including the emphasis they placed on understanding and practice of proof-texts over mere memorization and vested tradition; their embodiment of the Qur'an, Prophetic manners, simple living and remembrance of the One God that became known as Sufism; their distaste for theologizing beyond the necessity of explaining the creed; their affirmation of tolerance, generosity of spirit, and acceptance of divergent opinion which they understood as a mercy; and finally their division of innovation (bidʿa ) as either good or bad.
