(Fatwa: 386/386=L)


 


If the beliefs of the Bidati (innovator in religion) do not amount to Kufr (infidelity) then the salah behind him will be valid but Makrooh Tahreemi (highly undesirable):


ان کان ھوی لایکفر بہ صاحبہ تجوز الصلاۃ خلفہ مع الکراھۃ و الا فلا (عالمگیری:1/84)


 


(2) If they are not terming Taqleed as Shirk, are not abusing the Imams and pious predecessors and take care of Hanafi Fiqh in leading the salah then one can offer salah behind them:


والرابع عشر شروط صحۃ الاقتداء ان لا یعلم المقتدی من حال امام المخالف لمذھبہ مفسداً فی زعم المأموم یعنی فی مذھب المأموم کخروج دم ساءل او قئ یملأ الفم (طحطاوی علی مراقی الفلاح: 160)



Allah knows Best!
