Is it permissible to pray behind a Barelvi imam?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Darulifta-Deoband.com
in my family every one is barelvi sunni except my mother,sister & my wife.my father is pakka barelvi ,i am offering salah in deobandi & barelvi masjid .but my father is asking me to offer salah only barelvi masjid,he is telling me that u became wahabi,creating tension in my family my mother is taking my side,he telling that i will give talaq if u take your son side. .and he is asking me to leave deobandi sasjid or himself,is i am doing nafarmani of him.i like jamat.is it right to offer salah behind barelvi imam because they are calling nabi pak as ya rasullah in their darud and before azan is not they doing shirk ?


(Fatwa: 118/99/L=1432)

Salah shall be valid behind the Barailavi Imam if his beliefs are not of polytheistic, but with karahat-e-tahrimi. It is not lawful to say ‘Ya Rasulullah’ believing the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) omnipresent and omniscient. It is a polytheistic belief.
