Who are Ghair Muqal’lideen (Non-Conformist)

بِسۡمِ اللهِ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِيۡمِ

The Ghair Muqallids are also a branch of the Wahabis. They refuse to adhere to the established and recognized doctrines of Islam. Their views are very close to the views of the Deobandis, who are also a new corrupt group.

It is for this reason that the Ghair Muqallids do not accept the Deobandis as kaafir, since they both are used to uttering words of shirk. The law of Shariah is very clear, that all those who doubt the kufr or punishment of a kaafir are themselves kaafir.

The Ghair Muqallids do not accept the 4 schools of thought in Fiqh and have thus innovated a path different from the true path. They say that to make Taqleed (follow one of the 4 righteous Imams of Fiqh) is Haraam and Bid'at.

They even slander the great Imams of the Madhabs. The reality is that they too make Taqleed. They are definitely the followers (Muqallids) of Shaitaan. These people refute the concept of Qiyaas (Religious Discretion) and to completely reject Qiyaas, is kufr.

They also refute Taqleed and one who rejects Taqleed in totality is a Kaafir.

The Wahabis use the term Bid’at in abundance. They brand almost everything as bid’at (innovation). I thus feel that it is very important to explain the true meaning of the term bid’at. That bid’at which is an evil innovation and which is against the Sunnah is Makruh and Haraam.

As for any innovation which is of benefit to religion, then this is sometimes in the category of being Mustahab (desirable), sometimes Sunnat and even to the degree of being regarded in the category of being Waajib (compulsory) to act upon.

Hazrat Umar-e-Farooq رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ says as follows concerning Taraweeh,

 نِعْمَةُ البَدْعَةِ هُذِهِ

This is a good innovation
