Question: Scholars have expressed conflicting views on offering Salaah while being led by imaams who adhere to Bid
ah (rejected innovations in religion) or who follow Tareeqahs (Sufi orders), especially the followers of Al-Teejaaniyyah order. Perusing the treatise composed by ShaykhAbdul-Rahmaan Ibn Yoosuf Al-Ifriqee (may Allaah show mercy to him), who was later the chairman of Daarul-Hadeeth in Al-Madeenah Al-Munawwarah entitled “Al-Anwarul-Rahmaaniyyah fi Hidaayat Al-Firqah Al-Teejaaniyyah”, I came to know that the followers of this order, may Allah guide them to the right path, hold false beliefs. I also learnt that they are closer to Shirk and error than to faith, belief in the Qur’aan and following the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).
Consequently, is it permissible to offer Salaah while being led by an Imam who is a follower of Al-Teejaaniyyah order? If your answer is in the negative, is a Muslim permitted to perform Salaah with his family at home when all the imaams of the Masjids (mosques) in his town adhere to Bid
ah? Furthermore,is it permissible to offer a second congregational Salaah in the same Masjid after the one that is led by the Imam who adheres to Bidah and the followers of Al-Teejaaniyyah order finishes? My concern is that this might lead to confusion and disunity among the Muslims.
