calling other muslim by names like WAHABI “

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
Is it permissible for a Muslim to call other by “names like WAHABI” because he or she said that shabe miraj celebration has no evidence from Islamic Shariah, it has become routine anyone who calls other Muslim to follow Quran and Hadith and he is labeled as WAHABI gustaakh.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 875/865/B=9/1438)

Those who do not support the Barailvi sect they call them the supporter of Shaikh Abdul Wahab Najdi and label them as Wahabi. Neither the companions celebrated the Eid Milad al-Nabi whereas they loved the holy Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) the most, nor the Tabiyen celebrated it nor our four Imams. This celebration was started 600 years later by someone. Hence the celebration of Eid Milad al-Nabi is not proved from the Shariah, it should be forsaken. 

Allah knows Best!
