Question # : 280


Here (in Kashmir) almost 60% of all Masjids are of Baralvi type and they openly ask help from others (besides Allah) in dua and many more things. My concern is that if Namazz behind them is not valid, what should we do then, have we to say Namaaz alone? While we know Jammat is must for all Males. Kindly suggest me what should we do?

How do they openly seek help from others beside Allah, what are their exact words? Our elders do not regard them as kafir, but they only say that the salah behind them is Makrooh-e-Tahreemi (highly undesirable). The safer way for you is to pray in a mosque not having such people as imam.
