As Salamu Alaikum Maripat
Your right , I do not understand them much and not sure who they are.Where as the Deobandi view is a bit vague,
I am hearing this for the first time so I'll assume that there is some thing missing here.
there are a few who take a very hard stance against sufis , I guess you can call them Deobandi .
Deobandis are sufis so again there might be some thing missing here.
Most mainstream scholars in my judgement don't go with any of them in
practice although people may classify them as either one.
They seem more dogmatic from the you tube videos but as I said I have
not come across face to face with someone openly saying they are one or
I heard from people ( who are not classically trained scholars ) that they
( deobandi ) or their Elders had disrespectful comments made on the prophet ( saws ) have not got the time and chance to verify that. Apparently
this is the barlevis main point against them.
On the other hand the term 'grave worshipers' are used against barlevis by
Deobandi's in their lectures on youtube and internet .
Important just because I am placing counter accusations do not mean I believe and put every one in each group under the above harsh statements.
I know I am working as the devils advocate here , that is just how my
In my mind it casts a shadow of doubt against both groups hardliners.
I do get this feeling from some 'Mullah' s that they are acting more in a
peer pressure to try and make a point in their sermon that might not have been necessary or even relevant to the average Muslims need. This
observation is equally true of both groups. Be it in mosque or anywhere
Elaborate please . We say Darood wa salaam as a habit always .Here I get the feeling that innovators have tricked you. I'll just give you a test. Try to listen to a gatherings of these two groups. In one of them the will send Peace and Blessings (Darood wa Salaam) on beloved Prophet(PBUH) only when they are asked to do so from the mike. In the other gathering when the speaker just mentions the name of beloved Prophet(PBUH) people will mutter without any prompting. It is by habit. Now this is the aim of Islam that it becomes part of your life - your habit. Try it and may be this will settle the matter for you. May Allah(SWT) make it easy fro you.
And at my local mosque both scenarios are common.
You mentioned gatherings , this is what I meant as
reality in Dhaka Bangladesh. Here to my knowledge we do not have
hardcore schools of thought who have separate gatherings.
Be it such, you are right there are people influenced by them no doubt.
More questions to come later.
