Asking different scholars for a fatwa regarding the same issue

Question: Is it from the methodology of the Salaf to seek a fatwa from a scholar regarding an issue, [and] then go to another [scholar] and seek a fatwa [about the same issue] from him, and so on?

Response: If you trust his knowledge and piety, then do not go to another [scholar seeking a fatwa for the same issue].

If a pious scholar provided you with a fatwa, then take it and act upon it and do not go to another [scholar] and another [scholar], because the need [for which you sought a fatwa] has ended with you questioning the first [scholar].
