Consequently, it is not the founder, but the successor who becomes more worthy of a following, since it is he who unites the various schools around what his predecessor established. 42 Although al-Ghaz¥lÏ offered little that was new in his first work on u|‰l al-fiqh, namely, al-Mankh‰l min Ta¢lÏq¥t al-U|‰l, he progressed clearly in the realms of revision and development in his book entitled Shif¥’ al-GhalÏl fÏ Bay¥n al-Shabah wa al-MukhÏl wa Mas¥lik alTa¢lÏl, after which he made even more distinctive, mature contributions in al-Musta|f¥ min ¢Ilm al-U|‰l.
