Who are the wahabis?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by
Assalamualaikum, Who are the wahabis? Whats the difference between wahabis and deobandis? Has any of our great scholars like hazrat moulana rashid ahmed gangohi nawarallahu marqadahu said that wahabis are good people? Are deobandis also wahabis?


(Fatwa: 518=503/B)


The followers of Abdul Wahab Najdi are called as Wahhabis.


There are differences at some matters between Deoband and Wahhabis. In order to know the details you should study the book محمد بن عبد الوہاب اور ان کے خلاف پروپیگنڈہ.


Hazrat Maulana Rashid Ahmad Gangohi wrote that he had heard that Abdul Wahhab was a good man, followed Hambali Maslak, but had some strictness in nature.
