Salah behind a Person whose beliefs are incorrect


What’s the ruling on reading Salah behind a Person whose beliefs are incorrect?


If the individual has such beliefs which take him out of the folds of Islam, like the one who denies the finality of the Prophetﷺ or thinks that the Quran we have is not complete or has similar beliefs then the Salah behind such person will be totally invalid to read again is farz.

And if the individual has such belief which is not kufr but leads him to ضلالة (misguidance), then Salah behind him will be Makrooh e tehrimi and repeating such Salah is Wajib.
