    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 399/D=95/File-D=1433) (1) Consult local authentic Ulama. (2) Ask the Salafi or Hanbali the detail of differences regarding their faith and belief. However, Hanbali is one who follows Imam Ahmad ibn Hambal (رحمة الله عليه) in Fiqh their beliefs are like of Ahl Sunnah al-Jamah. A Ghair Muqallid is one who does not follow any Imam out of four Imams in Fiqh. God forbid! Some of them are extremist they abuse the four Imams and consider Taqleed shirk. Some are so excessive that they choose their own way in the collective doctrines of beliefs. This group is infringer from religion.
