Should Hanafi followers follow Shafee madhab in mosques?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
as salamualikum, I am following hanafi madhab….now i am in a place where all mosque imams are shafee madhab. 1)In 2nd rakat of fazar salat they ask dua after ruku and before sizda.what should i suppose to do at this time. 2)They offer bitr in ramzan in 2 1 basis.I heared we should offer bitr salat alone in this case.What to do? 3)Most of the imam after farz(obligatory)prayer ask dua loudly and muktadi say amin.I heared no reference are there for this.Is it so?what to do at this time.


(Fatwa: 102/75/D=1432)

(1) You should lower your hands at the time of dua and keep quiet.
ويأتى الماموم بقنوت الوتر لا الفجر بل يقف ساكتا على الاظهر مرسلا يديه .
(2) Do not offer witr salah behind those Imams who do salam at two rakah and offer one rakah separately. In such cases, perform with another jama’ah if you find some people and it is not improper, otherwise offer it alone.
(3) It is proved by hadith to do dua after fardh salah, and low voice is liked in dua. The holy Quran says:
ادْعُواْ رَبَّكُمْ تَضَرُّعاً وَخُفْيَةً [الأعراف : 55]
However, if namazis are not disturbed, there is no harm in doing dua loudly, but it is makrooh to make it a habit.
