Terms of salaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
I have question regarding salah, just near my home there is mosque of Barailvi and sometimes I perform salah behind them to get jamat and sometimes when I stay in market, can I do like this?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 68/68/SD=01/1436)

It is makrooh to offer salah behind a Barailvi imam. You should only offer salah in Deobandi mosque though it is on a distance. However, the salah you had offered in Barailvi mosque were valid and you got the reward of jamah provided the imam of the mosque was not involved in such a bida’h that amounts to kufr.
