Q: Who are the people who believe in Peer and what is the knowledge and understanding behind this and why are we not allowed to believe in them even though we respect a religion?


A: We would like to know what did you hear about peer and what type of peer you are referring to. In Persian, peer refers to an old man.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
