I started studying the Hanafi madhhab in the US. In the KSA I found Hanbali teachers & studied that school in depth with them. My bachelor's degree was awarded based on our study of a seminal Maliki work of comparative Fiqh. My masters thesis was based on the Shafi school.
Am I saying I know all 4 madhhabs back to front? No. But I am familiar enough w them to navigate their books & understand their usul. What I have studied the most is the Hanbali school, it's what I refer to primarily, and I consult peers and elders in other schools for clarity.
In applied fiqh I specialized in two areas:
1- Adjudication
2- Financial transactions
I shadowed judges, scribes, and attended court proceedings.
I sat under Shariah scholars, wrote research on deals/transactions, and drafted board resolutions for signing by those scholars.
Another area of applied fiqh that I studied was the laws of inheritance. the Islamic University of Medina has perhaps the most extensive curriculum for studying the subject in a bachelor's program found in the Islamic world. I also studied it traditionally in the Masjid alNabawi.
Why state all this? Two reasons:
A) Your 3 years on social media doesn't qualify you to judge 28 years of study.
B) If you want to do this, you can too. Knowledge is for everyone. Just apply yourself, leverage your local resources, and seek diligently.
Humble yourself and study instead of challenging those that preceded you.
The Salaf would say "There are two who never learn: the timid and the proud."
