brother al atharee... the deobandis in manhaj r pretty close to the mauritanians... they are both equally strict on bidah, beard etc....
Anyway I think its a gross misrepresentation to think that most of the arab world is brelvi inclined....
It is true that deobandis are unique to a certain extent... I mean one thing for sure is that no group has done as much for the revival of the ummmah as the deobandis....mashallah
The ikhwanis are very dissimilar to the deobandis... I mean imam hassan al banna rh had a similar vision to maulana ilyas to a certain extent but the ikhwan leadership lost its way and today the group is in a sad state.
Do you mean to say that most of the arab world believes in such things like the prophets and the awliya having tasarruf over the whole universe?

Or is it prohobiting mawlid and other innovations, and emphasizing on the sunnah?
We are very eager to know!
