Interacting with ghair muqallids


1. Should we treat the La-Madhhabi as Non-Muslims?

2. Could we accompany with them in Salaah and Janaza following our Hanafi Imaam or behind their Imaam, feast at their home or our home? Kindly elaborate me.


1. If their beliefs are in conformity with the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa`ah they will be muslims.

2. It is permissible to follow them as long as they conform and agree to our requirements.

3. People that are not compatible, then socializing with them will result in problems. You should keep a distance.

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