When all the schools of fiqh are based on Quran and Sunnah, why are there differences among them? Here is a detailed answer from that great teacher, Shaikhul Hadith Maulana Muhammad Zakariyya, Rahimahullah. Very ably translated into English by Maulana Muhammad Kadwa. Translation revised and updated by White Thread Press.

From the back cover:

If the Imams of the four schools [madhahib] established all of their rulings from the Qur’an and the Sunna, why have they differed on so many points? How can two authentic narrations from the Messenger of Allah {SAWS} appear to contradict one another? When is it acceptable for Muslims to differ over religious matters? What did the Messenger mean when he said, “The differences of my Umma are a source of mercy?”

Using examples from the Messenger of Allah {SAWS}, his Companions, and their Followers, The Differences of the Imams answers these puzzling questions in a thorough and concise manner. In a clear and lucid style, the author illustrates the various ways in which different narrations seem to contradict one another and how the Companions and the Imams of jurisprudence have reconciled these apparent differences. This work is an excellent resource for anyone seeking to better understand some of the deeper issues of hadith and jurisprudence: how these two disciplines come together to form the basis of Islamic law [Shari'a], why it is necessary to follow a school of Islamic law, and what the basic principles of hadith scholarship are.
