Friendship with a Qaadiyaani

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: What should be the conduct of a Muslim towards a person who is a Qaadiyaani (based on certain evidences like wearing particular type of abayas, wearing nailpaints all the time even during fardh ghusal and wudhu, claiming that she follows the maslak in which nailpaints have nothing to do with wudhu/ghusal viability) but have never called her so or have never been confronted for her belief except for a few occasions, on her social media raised voice for the persecution of Ahmadis. That stirred in our minds that she might be one… then we pondered, researched and thereafter find how to spot a Qaadiyaani female…. The said girl is our friend, but after this acknowledgment we try to maintain a distance but being roommates at a hostel and in our attempt to not depress her further through isolating her as she is already a detained student… we are not able to do it completely! We are in a different class so that implies that we aren’t together all the time.

Please help us in this situation to protect our imaan from this fitnah and guide us to how we should behave towards her. She never talks about religious stuff and is unlikely to influence anyone with her belief, when she even has not disclosed it to us.


A: Break away from her altogether and keep a reasonable distance. Many a times the poison is so subtle and discreet that you do not see the toxic effect immediately.

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