Ask The Imam Question and Answer

7 Are Barelvies part of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat and what Madhab do they prescribe? (i.e.: Hanafi, Shafi etc.)
The Prophet (S.A.W) said that it is incumbent upon you to follow my Sunnah and the Sunnah of my four rightly guided Caliphs.
This is the Hadith from which the name Ahl-us-Sunnah-wal-Jamah has been derived.

The term Barelvies is not correct. Those who accuse the Ahl-us-Sunnah-wal-Jamah of being Barelvies are in the wrong because the Barelvies literally means a person from Barely.

The reason why the Ahl-us-Sunnah-wal-Jamah are sometimes called Barelvies is because they have immense love and respect for an unparallel scholar, who was born in Barely-Shareef on June 14 1856.

He is renowned as the Mujadid (revivalist) of the 14th century Hijrah. This man, known to the world as Imam Ahmad Raza, propagated verbally, and through his thousand or so penned works, the Islam that came to us continually for the last 13/14 centuries.

As we accept his work therefore sometimes we are called Barelvies.

All of the Ahl-us-Sunnah-wal-Jamah constitutes of one of the four Madhabs.
