The rise of such idea much concerns with formalistic and legalistic trends of common classical fiqh. The formalistic and legalistic approach to fiqh has encouraged people to manipulate the fiqh and make it separated from ethics as its philosophical base.

An epistemological remedy is necessary to break down the rigidity of fiqh and make it powerful to solve social problem.
