Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
If I wish to follow the Shafi’i ruling on identifying and determining my period, must I also follow rulings for other legal questions from the same school? On the other hand, can I continue to follow the Maliki school on all other legal questions i.e. rulings for non-menstrual spotting, ablution, bathing etc.? I normally do not mix between schools but with regard to this issue, I really feel a need to do so.
Jazakum Allahu khayran.
