Shafiee’s Flawed Logic

Renae quoted Shafiee saying: Shafii…taking it beyond just Qur’aan…and Hadith. “Then I said to him: It is not for me, or for any knowledgeable person,
to hold that something is allowed or prohibited, nor to take something
from someone, or grant something to him, unless he has found a proof
text for that in the Book of God, or a Sunna, or consensus, or a legally
binding report.”

Here’s a problem , Shafiee. The ‘sunna’ here is according to your definition. So what you’re doing is setting a criteria then making information conform to your defintion. So where does Allah come in, if at all?
