-“Mirbad”: Refers to the place dates are placed on so that they become dry.

Why is there difference of opinion when the Qur’an and Sunnah are one?
-We have many angles here: Linguistic, method of deduction, etc.
-It is an intricate topic, and there are various ways of deducting rulings from the Qu’ran and sunnah, right from the companions.
-Some scholars from the Sahabah had confidence in looking at meaning of texts a bit more than others, whilst others wore content to stick tot he apparent ruling of the text.
-One example of this difference in understanding the statement of the Prophet(s) in different ways is from this hadith:
Narrated Abd-Allah ibn Umar: On the day of Al-Ahzab (i.e. Clans) the Prophet (s) said, “None of you Muslims) should offer the ‘Asr prayer but at Banu Qurayza’s place.” The ‘Asr prayer became due for some of them on the way. Some of those said, “We will not offer it till we reach it, the place of Banu Quraiza,” while some others said, “No, we will pray at this spot, for the Prophet did not mean that for us.” Later on it was mentioned to the Prophet and he did not berate any of the two groups.
