The 6 special Favours of Allah to Muhammad (saw)

Question 1: What is meant by "the ijma' of the ummah" and "the ijma' of the scholars." Are they the ummah of today and the scholars of today? Or are these ijma' referring to the time of the sahaba or the first 3 generations?
Answer 1:
There are 3 ijmah. You are a zindeek if you go against ago these ijmah. If you go against the ijmah of the sahabah you are a kafir.

And whoever contradicts and opposes the messenger (Muhammad saw) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follows other than the believers' way. We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in hell what an evil destination. (an-nisa 4:115)

The scholars say this ayah is saying don’t go against the ijmah.

Ibn Taymiyyah said: and it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a sharia other than the sharia of Muhammad (saw), he is a kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran) and reject some of it. majmua al-fataawa: vol 28, p. 524.

Ibn Kathir and Ibn Qayyim said dismantling the shariah you are a kafir.

Thus, it has become in his sons a followed law to which they have been giving precedence over ruling by the book of Allah and the sunnah of his messenger (saw). Whoever does this is a kaafir who must be fought until he returns to the rule of Allah and his messenger. so no one other than he should rule neither minorly or majorly". Tafseer ibn kathir, vol 2, p.67

Verily, you (o Muhammad saw) will die and verily, they (too) will die. (az-zumar 39:30)

Abu Bakr As Sidique said that Muhammad (saws) is dead, but Allah is alive. The brelvis that say that the prophet (saws) is alive in the grave have gone against the ijmah of the sahaba. You have third ijmah, ijmah of the scholars. You are not allowed to marry aunt, niece. Gold is haram for men.

Abu Musa ash’ari reported that Allah’s messenger (saw) said, “Wearing silk and gold is forbidden to the men of my ummah. But (they are) allowed to their women.” [tirmidhi 1726, nisai 5163]

Ijmah of Sahabas, ijmah of scholars, ijmah of ummah are the three ijmah. The four great imams say that if the women miss Ramadhan due to, pregnancy, to fast, however this is wrong.
