I am a youth of 17 years and live in Pakistan. My humble request is that you guide me as to which FIQH is correct, Deobandi, Barelvi or Ahl e Hadees? All say that they are correct and I do not understand which one is correct. Please reply who is correct along-with the proofs for it and also for theirs. May Allah give you and me the Thoufeeq to do good deeds and guide in correct path and bestow lofty ranks in Jannat.
الجواب حامدا و مصلیا
It is necessary for you to consider and select as to which group or Jama’at;
whose Aqa’id and Nazriya (doctrines and concepts) do not contain even the smell of fatal diseases such as Kufr and Shirk,
stays distantly away from Bid’ath (Innovations) and Rasm o Riwaj (customs and traditions),
practices only on Qur’an and Sunnah and follows and imitates Sahaba, Thabi’een,Thab e Thabi’een and the elders of Ahl e Sunnat wal Jama’ath and calls towards their mission.
Unquestionably, they are on truth and should strive to adopt their company and nearness considering it as a source of fortune and Barakath. And according to our view they are the Ulema of Deoband whereas the Barelvis are keen and particular about Bid’at (innovations) and Rusoomat (traditions) while those who are called Ahl e Hadis are in fact, people of no religion who disagree with the Salaf (pious predecessors) and are displeased with them. Therefore, it is necessary to abstain and avoid the people of these two groups.
Allah knows best.
