Marrying a Barelwi

Q: A marriage proposal came for my daughter. The boy and his family involve in barelvi practices which we consider baseless, as my family is firm deobandi. In the situation, should I consider this proposal or not? If I refuse it would I be sinful because there is no big issue in the proposal apart from that. Please guide me properly so that it would help further.

A: Generally there are problems when both the spouses are from different backgrounds and each one wishes to be loyal and friendly towards his or her family. In the process, they have fights, quarrels, and misunderstandings.

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