Praying Behind a Person with Deviant Beliefs

Question

Is it allowed to read prayer behind a person who has wrong beliefs?

Answer

According to Islamic laws it is not allow to pray Salah behind deviant people i.e. those people who have wrong beliefs and this is proofed from the Hadith of our beloved prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafaﷺ.

A man did the act which was against the respect of the Holy kabah during the era of Holy prophet and Holy prophet ordered other people do not pray behind this man.

So if the Imam has wrong beliefs, it is not allowed to pray behind him, doesn’t matter where are you performing namaz.

Try to search any correct beliefs sunni imam and read behind him or if you are eligible do you own Jamat.
