His fatwas dealt with issues represented by his nineteenth-century context and exhibited the workings of the process of rulemaking; he disagreed with some key positions of his own school, arguing that rules continuously evolved, leading to differences even from those of Abu Hanifah, the eponymous founder of the school.
