    Title: Salah

    Question: I am Hanafi, is it allowable for me to pray after Wahabi, (Ghair Muqallid) even they are calling to us by the name Mushrik.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 936/737/B=1434) One should not offer salah behind such staunch ghair muqallid who counts all the Muqallids as mushrik, and abuses Hadhrat Imam Abu Hanifa (رحمة الله) as well as has false beliefs. Such person is fasiq (transgressor) without any doubt and one is forbidden in the Hadith to offer salah behind a fasiq person. ولا يؤم فاجر مؤمناً (ابن ماجہ).
