Difference Between Sunni and Wahabi

Sunni vs Wahabi

The major difference between Sunni and Wahabi is the beliefs and rituals. Sunnis are in majority and almost 90% percent of Muslims around the world belong to Sunni sect whereas the members of Wahabi movement are located in Saudi Arab. There are a few main and major as well as many secondary differences between the Sunni and Wahabi Muslims which caused these sects to be cut off from each other and emerge independently.

The major difference between them is that Wahabis believe that Prophet Muhammad should be praised only as a human being whereas Sunnis show extra special care and respect towards the Prophet of Islam.

Sunni Muslims celebrate the birthday of the Holy Prophet and arrange Meelaad. Meelaad is a form of gathering in which the Sunni Muslims get together and praise the Holy Prophet. The birthdays of Sufi saints are also celebrated with much dedication and enthusiasm. The day of their deaths are commemorated in the form of Urs. Wahabi Muslims do not believe in celebrating and practicing all these events which are very strongly rooted in Islam. Wahabis call these practices of events as unlawful and wrongful innovations. Wahabis also believe that this is as close as to shirk or polytheism and Sunnis follow the ways of infidel Hindus.

Sunni Muslims believe that Prophet Muhammad is Nur and still present in this world. Whereas Wahabis do not believe in using pious individuals as intermediaries when asking Allah as they consider it shirk or polytheism. Sunnis believe in the saints and mysticism whereas Wahabis do not believe in mysticism, intercession and prostration as well. Sunni Muslims visit the tombs of the saints and perform tawassul for the blessings of Allah whereas it is the greatest sin for a Wahabi.

Sunni Muslims believe in four imams of fiqah or Islamic laws such as Hanfi, Hanbli, Malakii and Shaafeyii whereas Wahabi does not follow an Iman in Fiqh. Wahabi Muslims are a group of fundamentalists and have an orthodox version Islam. Wahabis in Saudi Arab do not allow their females to work side by side with their men and they also are not allowed to drive a car. The women are treated as third rate citizens and they are bound to wear a long abayaa or garment to cover them from head to toe. Sunni Muslims are moderate and believe in the equality of women as suggested by Islam.

There are many differences present in their rituals of praying, marriage ceremonies, dresses etc. Wahabi Muslims have separate mosques and schools. Wahabi Muslims are followers of Mohammed ibn Abdul Wahab in the 18th century in Arabia, and his movement came up against a lot of opposition from the Indians Sunni Muslims. Members of the Wahab movement in Saudi Arabia believe their role as a restorer or reformer to free Islam from negative deviances, heresies, innovations, superstitions and idolatries. Wahabis prefer to eliminate music and listening to songs. They are against watching television and drawings of living things which contain a soul.


1. Wahabi Muslims are followers of Muhammad ibne Abdul wahab present in the 18th century in Saudi Arabia whereas Sunni Muslims are followers of Prophet Muhammad and his companions.

2. Sunni Muslims believe in intercession and mysticism whereas Wahabis call them as deviants and wrongful innovations in Islam.

3. Sunni Muslims strictly follow one of the four schools of thoughts or madhabs of fiqah or Islamic jurisprudence whereas Wahabis follow their sheikh.

4. Wahabis do not observe annual Sufi festivals, events or the birthday of Prophet Muhammad.

5. Sunni Muslims wear charms and believe in healing powers unlike Wahabi beliefs like visiting tombs or shrines of saints.

  1. we are all muslims and the fact that we are cursing and calling everyone scum was one thing that Allah feared would happen and so did the prophet so we should not disrespect each others belief infact we all should just focus on haveing the right intention when we pray so that we all go through the doors of jannah so those who are calling themselves sunni , shia or whahabi should realise that we are all muslims and we are all brothers and sisters and should focus on the fact that we are servents of Allah and no matter what and how you pray all that matters is having the right intention and should try to stay away from the shaytaan that is causing us brothers and sisters to argue and class them as ” not one of us ” the fact that Allah said that we should respect people of other religons and their beliefs and we are not respecting the belief of our own brothers and sisters is digusting and the final fact that i want to say is that iam not a sunni , shia or a whahbi etc im a Muslim

    • Thanks brother, the exact message

    • Salam to you all my brothers and sisters.
      Hussain, I agree with you. Let Allah decides and judges who’s right and who’s wrong. In fact, we don’t have any authorization to judge such a thing.
      I just realize that being judgeful and fighting one to another between moslems are the factors of how Islam weakens by the followers themselves. So, why don’t we be the peaceful followers of the peaceful Islam? May Allah shows us all the right path and gives us the blessings and jannah al-feerdaoos.

      • Many of us who are not Muslim but are Christian are confused by the extremist actions in the world of some Muslims, and some live alongside us. I am so pleased that the previous contributors can agree on the content of this article, the differences were not known to me. As I travel the world I am now less likely to converse with a Muslim on any topic, based on the conduct of the less reputable conduct of Muslims. Many in the West believe that the conflicts currently ongoing originate from the rulers in Saudi Arabia and that very little will be resolved in the world until this is addressed. There are many conflicts world wide. Am I incorrect in my observations and/or interpretations. I write as a pacifist not one looking for conflict. Our challenge on this earth is to live peaceably together.

        • I’m Agreed with you. I’m A muslim and i love peace .

        • Dear brain yiu know muslims only through fabricated media your and our media is run through jewish fundings they gave a image of muslims as a villan there are 1.8 billion muslims in the world and the numbers r still growing unlike christianity and jewishism we Muslims r united thriugh Mekkah and about the conflicts they r present from the start and not gonna end till doomsday every country is fighting for its survival the peacefull world is just an immagination it can never be done untill we r united through something

          • Muslims are growing because you don’t use birth control and have 3 wives to produce 30 children. I hope you people could understand and do not put too much pressure on mother earth.

          • I think you missing the reverts to islam. Islam started in Arabia and now its all over the world. Secondly At least some of us have 3 wives with whom we have legitimate kids……. And not 3 mistresses making b kids like you people

          • Islam is for end of this world

          • Waheed don’t be naive every human being has right to live peacefully if you don’t believe in peace you are enemy of your relegion and not listening to your own prophet and people who think same as you do will be opening the doors of hell for yourself may God help you

    • How accurate is this article? I have never heard of sunni muslim believing in an intercessor or even wearing charms or bracelets. It is something that was not known to be practiced during the Prophet ‘s time( phub). Also celebrating anyone’s birthday is not something known, but I am not sure if it is haram. I have heard cases where sunni muslims celebrate it.

      • This article is factually incorrect. Uninformed or deliberate misinformation provided to confuse people. Those who seek to learn, please ask any religious scholars. Basically this is one religion, Islam. May Allah swt guide us all to the one and only truth. Please do not be a part of spreading more confusion.

        • Haron …you have said it all in very few words. This article is deliberate misinformation. I am a sunni muslim and I dont do what the article is saying.

        • The article is accurate to a great extent. In fact sunni sect has divided into several sub sects such as deobandi, barelvi etc with many differences. Barelvis celebrate go to urs of saints and birthday of Holy Prophet ( pbuh) whereas wahabis reject such functions as these were never celebrated during early period of Islam. I would request all Muslims to follow Quran and sunnah and leave all rituals added unnecessarily.

        • Alsalaamu Alaikum wa rahmotulla wa barakatu
          (May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon you)

          I am a Revert Muslim and learning the differences I would at this time claim to be Sunni as far as I see only follows Qur’an Sunnah & Hadith (only most reliable strong proven hadith)…but if in doubt follow only Qur’an Sunnah.

          As a newbie 3.5 yrs even I know from my own research that this article is a complete load or rubbish as far as factual differences though different sect Do Indeed follow different versions of those things. Sunni Islam does Not follow Innovations that are included in this post and others not mentioned.

          La illa IlAllah

          As for differences in Sect, we are called to live in Peace with those who live in Peace with us…This Contrary to belief are not the Prophet Muhammad’s word (pbuh) but the words of Allah/G-d given to our beloved Prophet (pbuh).

          So lets forget the Misinformation and learn to live in Peace if we are able and allowed to do so. Even Allah is worshiped by Hindus, Amazonian Indians, American/Canadian Indians and many other Religions (unless this is misinformation too – as far as Im aware they leave a space for the Unseen G-d) And my reason for saying G-d instead of the ‘o’ in the centre is a respect to our brother and sister believers who are Jewish…

          Ya’Allah we are such a tiny part of Your universe yet we all think as humans we rule the world and You Are the Only Cherisher and Ruler of the World, Universe and who knows what is beyond our limited Intellect…Forgive us please our complete ignorance. Ameen

        • Totally agree with you.
          This article is completely wrong.

      • Incorrect article
        Writer should first get perfect knowledge

      • Dont heard of this. Have not heard of that…. that’s because you are unlearned. Maybe a little illiterate. Go and ask a sunni alim . He will provide proof

    • We Are ONE UMMAH only !

    • Alhamdulillah!

    • Hi! I’d like to weigh in as a Christian mom to a loving and respectful Muslim son-in-law. I see that Muslims have the same problem as Christians – interpretations, different rituals, etc.

      I studied Islam when I was 22 and curious. I asked the Imam who taught us how God could give us different “truths” and how we’re we to know which was correct? He said it was humans who get it wrong. There is one truth, and if you imagine truth as a circle, we each might get a tangent of truth; the truth we are given is within the context of our times and culture. What is the message God/Allah is giving us? LOVE. RESPECT. PEACE. LOOK AFTER EACH OTHER. We need to overcome our tribality and see Allah in each one of us.

      Peace and love to us all.

    • Assalamu Alaikum!

      Alhamdulillah that there are some people in this world who actually have the correct view of a muslim. I’m part sunni and part wahabi which some people criticise as they think i can’t be both. Many muslims have come to me and said that i am stupid being wahabi as they say that wahabis are crazy and they believe in the wrong things. I broke down and didn’t know what to say as i never knew there was so much criticism in Islam against Sunni, Wahabi and Shia. I did my research and thought that we are all muslims and that it doesn’t matter if we are sunni, wahabi or shia as we are all muslims. A sunni muslim came up to me and said that wahabis are bad and that i am going to be punished and that i have a wrong beliefs. He also said that i didn’t believe in the prophet and that i couldn’t be part sunni or wahabi. I’m sunni but part wahabi as i believe that the Prophet didn’t celebrate his birthday so why should we. I also believe in the Prophets teachings while also relying more on hadith. I also attend Meelads as people invite us and it doesn’t sound good to say now. During meelads we read naats, eat food and read Quraan and make Duaa. Instead of breaking down i said to the man that he call himself a good muslim but he is bringing shame upon himself as Allah has told us that we are all equal and i think that we are all muslims and it doesn’t matter what u are. It matters about intentions. The way you pray or the things u believe dont matter as long as u believe that Allah is the One and only God. Instead of criticising others, i think people should think about how they should improve their character and make themselves better muslims. If people think that they are better than others they should know that there is always someone who is higher in status islam like the Prophet peace be upon him. Allah didn’t make the Sunni, Wahabi and Shia. Humans made this. Allah just made the religion of Islam and made us pure muslims that have faith and believe in only one God that is Him, Allah. We are all muslims, so criticising others beliefs is just you bringing shame to yourself, not having the intelligence you should have before criticising others and also going against Allah.
      If a person says if your Sunni, Wahabi or Shia. Say to them that it doesn’t matter what you believe and that your Muslim like them and that you believe in Allah alone.
      I wanted this message to be passed on and to stay in people’s minds as if muslims fight over such a little thing then how will we show the greatness and purity of Islam to others and to non muslims.

      • I second you. I have the same thinking, as i would like to be called Muslim istead of Sunni, or wahabi in some cases. I really tried to explain to many peoples but they said you are wahabi kafir….So i just keep my thinking to myself now, and pray for others to understand real Islam. We have to respect each other no matter what our beliefs are.

      • Aarzoo

        You couldn’t have said it any better ! You took my thoughts right out of my head ! May Allah (swt) be pleased with you ♥️

      • Well said . i am also with the same opinion. I was in 8th grade when my teacher asked me whether I was a sunni or a shia. I didn’t know the difference at that time. I replied: ‘I am a Muslim ‘.
        The thing is people are creating misunderstandings among the people.
        We are just Muslims. Please stop creating conflicts.

      • A very beautifully thought n practised conciliatory approach to sinfully fighting sects of Muslims.May Allah bless us all.

      • Nice explained.But U should not say u r both like sunni or wahabi.There is no shia,Sunni,wahabi,or anything But Only Islam.No (-) Exist with Islam word.Only a single word “Islam” .I also got ur intention u trying to said the things shia sunni wahabi has many right story which r true & correct that’s wy u said u r both.Nothing wrong with that bcoz u know u believe only in islam.I just said u should not use those word to others.who knows they will invent one more religion combined by those word :p U also miss somethings which I cmnts at main post cmnt below

      • Arzooo u r just like me as i follow both wahabi as well as sunni such i wont celebrate birthdays of aulia or muhammad(pbuh) but i run according to world such as woman should be equal to men but not inferior in home

      • Salam to everyone, i agree with u sis as i also think that we should go for “tehqiq” from books of sahih ahadees mubaraka and leave all disputes as our Dear Holy Prophet peace be upon him taught us to save ourselves from anything that put us in sin and way of pleasing satan, wahabis strictly are against of going to tombs shrines by the women, is because mostly demons see any woman there n can possess her. Mostly jinns become aashiq of virgin girls who go to these places than make her life hell. Thats why our Beloved Prophet peace be upon him didnt allow women going to those places or even to graveyard.

      • Mashallah bang on sis !! I totally agree to you statement and I can totally relate , plus at the end of the day Islam is one and we should jus follow Quran and sunnah and try not to get into these names and branding one another etc its all about our intentions at end of day

    • dont read, did any ones mentioned any references of hadeeth, and dont try to get full islamic information from any websites, because, some times shia’s mention the words, to spoil muslims religions

    • Asa….Well said brother!!!…ALLAH HU AKBAR!!

    • U r wrong bro. Allha have given us brain to decide what’s wrong and what’s right.

    • Do you believe there is a possibility that humans, men that saw their community needed leadership and they “created” rules in the name of Allah to have peace and give his followers a path to heaven by abiding by these rules. In the process, said “follow me and YOU will be the chosen”.
      Do you really believe Allah cares about numbers? 72 or 73? Cares about music? Or is that a leader trying to control his flock. Why would Allah come to those people back then? A time of less education, and an extreme need to control the masses.
      Would Allah want you to listen to one person, and call others infidels?
      Why does Allah care about those “things”? Why would Allah not want everyone to be able to live a good life?
      Why would Allah want to oppress ANYONE?
      Why would Allah want to oppress women?
      Don’t you think there is a POSSIBILITY that this the the work of a HUMAN trying to control?
      One more thing….I am not a Christian, but have you ever seen the similarities in the stories of Christian and Muslims? It is amazingly unbelievably similar. I realize some may be insulted.
      But just open your mind to consider, that these leaders all had a similar way to control their populus.
      Would Allah or God want his people, ALL OF THEM, to behave with such ill will against other humans?
      That does not make sense to me. And it should not make sense to you. Back then, it was about power. Today, it is about power.
      Who are we humans, to judge another human? Isn’t that for Allah? I don’t want to do another human’s dirtywork, do you?

    • This article is totally misleading and definetly not factual i am a Sunni Muslim i treat a Muslim brother as a muslim brother disregarding sect. Theres alot of things u said about sunnis beliefs that me , my family, and even my mosque imam regard as total shirk

    • Wahabis are also Right and Sunnis are also right. Both are right because both are muslims. Its a strategy by CIA to differ majority sunnis from Wahabis for two reasons.
      Plus through that they will be able to change Islam. By making sunnis believing in following what they do and it will be easier to do further fabrications in sunni traditions.
      Plus the oil rich countries leadera the wahabis will have no one to protect them
      Plus the Orignal Islamic Traditions will be gone and will be impossible to restore in our Muslims nations.

    • Well said brother Hussain. The fact that the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) left us a clear and complete religion of Islam is a sign of ALLAH’s mercy on his slaves. All these sects in our deen are in my opinion a test to our Iman ALLAH knows best. At least we all share one thing that is None but ALLAH swt should be worshipped and Muhammad (pbuh) is ALLAH messenger. So therefore we should concentrate on our good intentions in worshipping ALLAH and good deeds (ALLAH knows best). Chastising each other’s sect wouldn’t do any good to no one.
      May the peace and blessings of ALLAH be upon the Islamic umma.

    • The Article written about
      Wahabies and sunies is completeltly baseless as Wahabies only consider Abdulwahab as a scholar and believe on Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.and his companion’s teaching.After Muhammad S.A.W. the most respectable people on earth are his companion not abdulwahab as mentioned in the article.

    • yeh brother your right…

    • Watch
      U r wrong Hussain bro.
      If unable to watch that video
      Give u r num I’ll send that video

    • You are not a Muslim. The moment you say that All 72 sects are correct and all are Muslims then you are contradicting the Hadith.
      If you believe that your aqeeda is correct then it becomes mandatory for you to say that others with contradicting Aqeeda are wrong.
      Unity can be attained when all have the same aqeeda.

    • Wrong selection of words.”Allah never fears*”. He just knows what would happen.

  2. Salaam to all brothers and sisters in Islam, irrespective of what differences we have.

    This is the second or third time I am posting a comment here and the main reason for that is to establish one fact, which is our brotherhood.

    Yes the debate of celebrating Prophet’s (Swallaahu Alaihi Wa sallam) Milaad, Shabaan 15 and many others will continue till the end of this world.

    If I say opinion then definitely I will be offending one sect, and I am sure you will not be able read without prejudice because of our differences.

    We have Quran and the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet, Ahamdulillah our world advanced so much that if you really want to ensure if hadith is true you can find it, if you dont search for it with an opinion.

    My simple request to all, do not call names or decide of someone being Kaafir or a bad muslim or a better muslim. Let Allah (SWT) decide this major thing, because definitely it is not upon us to judge anyone’s actions or deeds, and dont put yourself in trouble on the day of judgement when you will questioned for making statements against your brother. If someone is following a Bidah or dis approving a Sunnah, he will be questioned in the day of judgement. Yes, you can share your opinion, but you cannot force it on someone. Even prophet(Swallaahu Alaihi Wa sallam) said I am just a messenger, and he delivered the message, it is upto the Ummah to follow it completely, exactly, partially or nothing at all.

    So take time to examine without prejudice, and seek the real truth from Allah, and make dua to Allah to show you the real sunnah. And if you are sincere He will definitely guide you to straight path.

    What you are following, what your parents are following, what your teacher taught you, what is being practiced in Saudi Arabia, these are not the answers you should look for. Look for what the Prophet (Swallaahu Alaihi Wa sallam) practiced and make he really practised it from authentic hadith, inshaAllah you will guided rightly.

    Please make dua for me and my family to be guided along the straight path of our Prophet (Swallaahu Alaihi Wa sallam) and also grant us life to embrace this Ramdan with full of imaan.

    Ramadan Kareem to all my brothers and sisters in Islam,

    • those are a kufar who dont obey mohammad simply

      • Correction brother… if one doesn’t believe in Allah then he is a kuffar… and he should follow the Sunnah of our prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him)

        • Allah does not accept tauheed without the acceptance of beloved Prophet PBUH those who only witness Allah but not Prophet Mohammad PBUH ar just like Abu Jehal

      • Dear Brother in Islam

        Nothing gives anyone a right to label another as kuffar or bad Muslim.

        May Almighty Allah protect us.


        • Nadia….. wahabi says that the Sunnis are the people who don’t believe the main teacher of Islam so the Sunnis follow the ways of infidel Hindus I….. Their is no right to label another as kuffar , bad and infidel . But wahabi believes that sunni are infidel

    • Could not said it any better my brother .may ALLAH have mercy on u and your family

    • Assalamu alaykum brother,

      Ma’sha’allah i love ur comment as it is right only Allah (swt) has the right to judge. Us Muslims have no right to call someone a kuffar/kaffir as that is the only right tha Allah (swt) has also us calling someone a kaffir can lead to us losing our Imaan. We are a Muslims at the end of the day and the only thing we can do is guide our fellow brothers and sisters in Islam down the right path.
      Jazakullah Khair

    • Ramadan Kareem may Allah SWT grant you and your family all good in this life and the next and grant you good health and a long life. Shukran for telling the truth and yes I shared it on facebook and I am going to share with all my emailers. Salaam

      • JazaakAllahu khairan sister. It feels so right that we are making dua for each other rather than fighting over. This is brotherhood in Islam where you love each other only for the sake of Allah. May Allah help you in spreading peace and the right message to the community within your reach. Ameen

      • Walaikumassalam

    • We have nothing to do with Wahabis or for that matter with all the 72 sects. We have no intention of uniting with those misguide 72 sects.
      We also don’t want to argue about celebrating Milad, visiting graves, fatiha, salaam, urs etc. To discuss all these topics Wahabis first need to prove they are muslims but all I know is that one who has Anthropomorphic beliefs cannot be a Muslim.

  3. Praise be to Allaah.
    The Bareilawis are an extreme Sufi sect that appeared in the Indo-Pakistani subcontinent, in the city of Bareilly, in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh during the days of British colonialism. 

    The basic principles of their misguided, deviant teachings are based on exaggeration about the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and the members of his household, exaggeration about the righteous, enmity towards Ahl as-Sunnah, and diverting the people away from jihad for the sake of Allah. 

    The founder of this sect was called Ahmad Reza Khan Taqiy ‘Ali Khan; he called himself ‘Abd al-Mustafa. 

    He was one of the misguided extremists. He used to say: “When you are confused, seek help from the occupants of the graves.” 

    In his extreme exaggeration about the Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), he said: “The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) is in control everywhere; he is the king of earth and the sovereign of mankind.”  

    And he said: “O Muhammad, I cannot say that you are Allah and I cannot differentiate between you and Him; your matter is for Him to judge, for He knows best what you really are.” 

    And he said: “Allah, may He be blessed and exalted, gave the one who brought the Qur’an, our master Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), everything that is in al-Lawh al-Mahfooz.” 

    And he said: “The Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) is light from the Light of Allah, and all of creation comes from his light.” 

    Amjad ‘Ali, one of their leaders, said: “The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) is a deputy of Allah with complete authority, and the entire universe is under his control. So he does whatever he wants, he gives whatever he wants to whoever he wants, he takes whatever he wants, and there is no one in the universe who can alter his rule. He is the master of humans and whoever does not make him his sovereign is deprived of the sweetness of the sunnah.” 

    And he said: “Those who reject seeking help from the Prophets and saints and from their graves are heretics.” 

    Ahmad Yar Khan – one of their shaykhs – said: “The shar‘i meaning of the one who is present and watching [this refers to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him] is that the one who is possessed of holy power is able to see the world like the palm of his hand from the place where he is; he can hear sounds from near and from far; he can go around the world in a single moment; he helps those who are in need and he answers those who call on him.” 

    They used to build structures over graves and frequent them, lighting candles and lamps in them, offer sacrifices to them in fulfilment of vows, seeking barakah (blessing) from them, holding celebrations for them, putting flowers and roses and cloths on them and putting curtains around them, and calling their followers to circumambulate the tombs, seeking barakah from them. 

    See: al-Kashf ‘an Haqeeqat as-Sufiyyah (1/350); as-Sufiyah: Nash’atuha wa Tatawwuruha (p. 62); al-Mawsoo‘ah al-Muyassarah fi’l-Adyaan wa’l-Madhaahib wa’l-Ahzaab al-Mu‘aasirah (p. 302-306). 

    See also the answer to question no. 1487 

    The scholars of the Standing Committee for Issuing Fatwas were asked: 

    There is a certain group in Pakistan that is called the Bareilawis or the Nawaari group, named after their current leader who is known as Nawaari. I asked you for the shar‘i ruling concerning them and their beliefs, and praying behind them, so that this may bring peace of mind to many people who do not know the truth about them. And once again, I would like to ask you about some of their myths and widespread beliefs: 

    1.     The belief that the Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) is alive

    2.     The belief that the Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) is present and can see what is happening, especially immediately after Jumu‘ah prayer.

    3.     The belief that the Messenger (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) will definitely intercede for them.

    4.     They believe in the awliya’ (“saints”) and the occupants of graves, and they pray at their graves and ask them to meet their needs.

    5.     They build domes over graves and put lights in them.

    6.     They are known to say “Ya Rasool, Ya Muhammad (O Messenger, O Muhammad) (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him).

    7.     They get angry with the one who says Ameen out loud and raises his hands when praying, and they regard him as a Wahhaabi.

    8.     They find it very strange when the siwaak is used at the time of prayer.

    9.     They kiss their fingers during wudoo’, at the time of the adhaan, and after prayer.

    10. Their imam always recites the verse “Allah sends His Salat (Graces, Honours, Blessings, Mercy, etc.) on the Prophet (Muhammad ) and also His angels too (ask Allah to bless and forgive him)” [al-Ahzaab 33:56] after prayer, then all the worshippers send blessings upon the Prophet in unison and loudly.

    11. They gather in circles after Jumu‘ah prayer, standing, reciting and reciting poetry in praise of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) loudly.

    12. After completing the recitation of the Holy Qur’an in Taraweeh prayer in Ramadan, they make a great deal of food and distribute it in the forecourt of the mosque, as well as sweets.

    13. They build mosques and adorn them elaborately, and they write over the mihraab “Ya Muhammad (O Muhammad)”.

    14. They regard themselves as followers of the Sunnah and correct ‘aqeedah (belief), and think that others are in the wrong. 

    What is the shar‘i ruling on praying behind them? 

    They replied: 

    It is not permissible to pray behind one who is like this, and if one who knows that the belief of the imam is like that prays behind him, his prayer is invalid, because most of the things listed are characteristics of kufr (disbelief) and bid‘ah (innovation) that are contrary to the Tawheed (affirmation of the Oneness of Allah) with which Allah sent His Messengers and which He revealed in His Books. It is contrary to the clear meaning of the Qur’an, such as the verses in which Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): “Verily, you (O Muhammad ) will die and verily, they (too) will die” [az-Zumar 39:30] and “And the mosques are for Allah (Alone), so invoke not anyone along with Allah” [al-Jinn 72:18]. The innovations that they do should be denounced in a gentle way; if they accept it then praise be to Allah. If they do not accept it, then shun them and pray in the mosques of Ahl as-Sunnah. We have a good example in the Close Friend (Khaleel) of the Most Merciful, as Allah tells us he said (interpretation of the meaning): “And I shall turn away from you and from those whom you invoke besides Allah. And I shall call on my Lord; and I hope that I shall not be unblest in my invocation to my Lord” [Maryam 19:48].  

    End quote from Fataawa al-Lajnah ad-Daa’imah, 2/396-398 

    Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) was asked: What is the ruling on praying behind an imam from the Bareilawi sect, who believes that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) is alive and present and can see us? 

    He replied: If they believe that, then they have gone against ijmaa‘ (consensus of the ummah), and if they seek his help, then that is shirk, so it is not permissible to pray behind them.

    And Allah knows best.

    • you have spoken to the truth brother, but I am not sure if this is what the barailvi believe, and I hope this is not

    • Truth is worst to hear sometimes.
      100 percent terrorist are wahabis.
      Wahabis are the worst human on earth.
      World 90 percent terrorism directly or indirectly sponsored by Saudi wahabis.
      Saudi doesn’t have democracy.
      No rule
      No humanity
      Only terrorism
      And spreading terror by teaching wahabis culture to kill humans.
      But unfortunately America supports Saudi by supplying weopens so that Saudi can spread terror and to attack at innocent.
      May Allah bless America and his brother Saudi. 

    • !00% I agree with brother Yahya as the Brailvis Aqeeda is a mixture of Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Sufism, and Shiasim-Ahmed Raza was a con man he pretended to be a Sunni in order to deceive the unsuspecting Muslims.
      Abu Dhar said, “I was with the Prophet (SAW) one day and I heard him saying: “There is something I fear for my Ummah than the Dajjal.” It was then that I became afraid, so I said: ” Oh Rasool Allah! Which thing is that?” He (SAW) said; “Misguided and astray scholars.” Recorded in Musnad Imam Ahmad (No. 21,334 and No.21, 335).
      ‘Umar says: ”The Prophet said: ‘Do not exceed in praising me as the Christians over-praised Jesus. (That they made him the son of God.) I am a bondsman of Allah, therefore, call me the bondsman of Allah and His Prophet” (Tirmidhi 046: 313: Hadith 001)
      Brothers and sister refrain yourself from these non sense Barelvis please.

  4. I am a women who believes that celebrating milad urs and the like is sin. But I also want equal rights to aducation marriage and work as men. I feel wahabi religion is constricting for me as a women while sunni religion is full of activities deviating from real islam. What should I do I feel so confused. What is the real islam please guide. I feel Allah does not abandon his creations so he will not impose restrictions on his creation making them feel inferior. Its not my fault I was born female. Please tell somebody which is real islam I should follow dont want to be treated like an eejit and I dont want to die a sinner by following wrong.

    • I am a sunni from a multi-racial country, and I actually believe with what the wahabi’s believe in this post only difference is that:

      1) we treat women equally.

      2) we listen to music, watch tv, go to the cinemas, play games etc. this is probably influence by our multi-racial background.

      3) some of us do believe in charms, visiting tombs and shrines. but this people mostly supernatural practitioners, those who can catch jins and talk to them using medium. but I have to agree that some of them deviated completely like practicing magic etc. But majority of sunni’s are normal muslim who follow the islamic rules. So I don’t know why this author post it like it is. probably sunni from other country practice them? I dunno.

      For me personally, there’s nothing wrong being a wahabi or a sunni as long you are not a shia.

    • Assalamu alyakum sister,
      In the Quran it is said that us Muslims show celebrate the blessings bestowed upon us and the biggest blessing bestowed upon us is the Prohet Muhammad (SAW), which is why Sunnis celebrate the mawlid (the birthday of the Prophet (saw)). Whabis say that you shouldnt celebrate the Mawlid as the Prophet (astagfirullah) passed on the day. However in the Quran is says that every soul will taste death. The Prophet (SAW)’s souls was taken out but they didnt know here to put the blessed soul so they returned it to the body. Also in Islam you are not allowed to mourn for someone after 3 days so celebrating the birthday of the Prophet is fine.
      Jazakullah Khair

    • I think that we all as muslims are on a conquest to know the truth .In the mean time it is important not to become extreme in our ideas and thought about our perception of Islam. I dont know much about Wahabi but I have read it was started by a man Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, am I wrong? I am sure his intentions were good.Many of us can recite the Qu ran and recite it beautifully in Arabic. That is nice,but we do not understand it, nor can reflect upon on and apply it to today society. We need to education ourselves because we are in trouble.We are lacking education and humanity. This is why we have all these sects and one person extreme in their views want to called another one kafir. Why do some men think women should stay in the home?There is ignorant there, and that is false modesty.Anyway if anyone has a chance try to purchase this book. Let me know what you think ,share your ideas, let s have dialogue. ” In the footsteps of the Prophet :Lessons from the life of Muhammad” by Tariq Ramadan

      • Actually this is only upload for the information and to make the difference between wahabi and sunni it’s aim is not to break the law aur rules of any religion plz be positive everyone ….

    • whatever imam ahmed raza khan is said is 100% from quran and hadees.

      he showed the true love of holy prophet peace be upon him and saved iman of crores of muslims by recognising the greatest fitna of wahabism (najdi) as mentioned by our beloved prophet peace be upon him.

      wahabism is enemy of islam with hidden propoganda of fake tauhid. no use of that tauhid that disrespects our beloved prophet peace be upon him and pious servants of islam.

    • Please do some rescreach about islam and about sunni shia and wahabi as far as i know wahabi is wrong

    • 1) Its very simple.. follow quran and authentic hadees.. if there is no Quranic verses or Authentic hadees. please dont follow that particular virtue. in olden days people doesn’t had good knowledge each and everything, whatever the forefathers tells,or a priest in that area convey to follow; they did it. so different places follow different kind of virtues.. so what has happened so many new things added to islam. At present it is very easy to get the knowledge. Quran translation of all the major world languages are available.Authentic hadees also available. 2)About saudi arabia..the author mentioned as if no women allowed to go out from house. it is wrong. even saudi banks have women staffs. most of the women working. 3) car driving not allowed. it is not because of islam prohibited. it is due to the local demo-graphical issue. higher % of expatriate bachelors living in saudi arabia, especially asian countires. saudi arabia mostly deserts and its very tough for girls to travel from one city to another city alone.even as a man you will little fear to travel alone from city to city. hopes it is clear.if some one ask me who are you. About terrorism, saudi arabia doesnt have any terrorist organisation and the govt and the priest openly preaching against terrosim. last …if some one ask me who are you ? i would say Muslim. and a human!!!!

    • You believe that to perform milad is sin.
      That what about wahabi killing innocent. Raping women. Bombing in masjid. ?
      Please don’t follow wahabism.
      All wahabis are enemy of Islam

    • Yes you are right Sara but I want to explain you that the Sunnis arrange milad but we don’t worship him because Allah is only who is worthy for the worship …….. We only praises him because he is the last messager of Allah and is in heighest rank of Prophets …….. !

  5. Hello my friends and brothers , i think when a wahabbi saying if i kill a shia i will go to paradise , but not saying anything about sunni ,
    When they (wahabbies) living inside of sunnies and sometime (in syria) sunnies give home to wahabbies to not die by iranian soldiers, i think wahabbies are friend with sunnies. even if they say NO!
    but if they wanna choose between shia and wahabbi they will choose wahabbi!

  6. Assalium alaikum

    Just wanted to say everyone just stick to the basics and good deeds and refrain from calling anyone a kafir We are not here to judge each other and we cannot Who knows who Allah loves Have a good niyaat stick to the principles and do more good deeds JazkAllah Khair
    Allah hafiz

  7. As salam walequm
    I am die heart sunni follower of ala hazrat becoz he says what our be loved prophet mohhmad say…
    Nd for munafiks wahabis.. u guys read the kalma of prophet nd say he is common man majallah u r kaffir… allah apne huzzor k sadkey aur tamam buzurgo k wasile se aapko ilm aatah farmaye.. ameen

  8. Well prophet s.a.w according to quran in surah muzamil shows his hayatul nabi…as it reads ya hayuhal muzamil


    Aslam-o-alaikum to everyone

    What a shame on us how miser we are when it’s about most precious thing (Islam).

    we most of them care to judge and make sure the branding in all the aspects when we buy a pair of shoes of any brand.

    we really forgot why we sent here and what questions will arise in here after ,the people who are shaky about their beliefs they must act like that but who are knowing and feeling the lighting of Islam they are all ready to talk about their beliefs because they have no fear and they are sure what is going to uncover .

    if anyone want to know the truth that is already mentioned by author ,for your ref it is copied below.

    1. Wahabi Muslims are followers of Muhammad ibne Abdul wahab present in the 18th century in Saudi Arabia whereas Sunni Muslims are followers of Prophet Muhammad and his companions.

    why anyone should follow the Islam of 18th century .
    Prophet Muhammad( صلى الله عليه وسلم)said ,if you follow my any companion that is the way to reach me .

    what else to understand who is right or how is wrong???

    i am not against the unity of Ummah but at least we should recognize right or wrong

    i hope no will take it wrong .

    May Allah bless to all of us.

  10. Sunni is the most practical and more spiritual…wahabi has ni spiritual…n don t respect the Holy PROPHET…in the Prophet s time even his wudu water would be colected by his companion..even his salavia..his cupping blood drank by Sahabah…
    wahabi is over jealous for their women..women in the time of The Holy prophet rode horses and camel n donkey..but wahabi dont let women drive car.

  11. A/aleykum
    The prophet (peace be upon him) said, my ummah will be divided into 73 groups, 72 groups will go will go to hell, and only 1 group will go to jannah
    ; that 72 groups will go to hell is include wahabis, shias, salafis, ibadhis,etc,
    ; that 1 group will go to jannah is sunni muslims (ahle sunnat wa al jamaat) or sufism.
    All wahabis, shias, and salafis are murtad. Meaning who become non muslims after being a muslim. The lowest part of hell is reserved for them . Stay away from them even if they are your own brothers or sisters. Loyalty is the first quality in Islam
    Dear brothes and sisters the right path is sunni [ sufism ].

  12. In the final analysis can any “add on” in Islam be justified ? Any believe which wasn’t sanctioned nor mentioned by Muhammed (صلى الله عليه وسلم ) is in no ways part of Islam and using fabricated or weak Hadith to substantiate ones claims is a gross misunderstanding of the difference between Islam and cultural customs. It seems that the writer of the original article is having a go at “Wahabi” Islam, a Islam that is more pure from the innovations and misguidence propagated by some sects within Islam that originated in Indo-Pak. In actual fact how do you justify “Wahabi” Sunnah compared to “Berelwi” Sunnah ? I don’t mention “Deobandi” Sunnah as soon a comparison will be made between them as well, as being an shoot of “Wahabi”. The Berelwis /Sufis/ Kubooris/ Shias are big trouble makers as they adulterated the pure Sunnah with deviant practices that was NEVER part of Islam.

  13. There is only one Allah and one Rasool

  14. “Sunni Muslims wear charms and believe in healing powers”

    That statement above is NOT true….

  15. Indeed, those who have divided their religion and become sects – you, [O Muhammad], are not [associated] with them in anything. Their affair is only [left] to Allah ; then He will inform them about what they used to do.
    Quran 6:159

  16. Salam, I absolutely HATE and almost about to change my religion because of some STUPID Muslims.
    First Muslaims need to RESPECT all other religions, Stop calling them infedals because this is NOT Mohammad/Christ era this is 2016. If Muslims thinks they are right then First become something in Science/Technology
    Everything from litt;le screw to Automobile is given to Muslim world by WEST. Not a single Muslim country has given damn thing to the world.
    i dont want to go in too detail just want to say be a good citizen, respectful to others, get educated, be law abiding citizen, become powerful in science/technology so world can listen/hear you
    Salam GOD bless everyone

    • Salam
      Well said Joe! My message to all Muslims in the world men and women ” calm the *F*down and follow whatever Islam is telling you but don’t call others infidels!!!!”

      *F* like you make this world a living hell for others ! Why don’t you **F*follow what actually Islam has told you and leave others alone ? Stay positive and it’s f* 21st century and we can actually fly and drive 😉 not ride on donkeys !!!!!!! Prophet Muhammad (pbuh and his family ) taught us to be good human beings and respect others no matter what kind of religion they have so do as he told !!!!

      Forgive me if I was a little loud and rude because I thought being direct is better than pretending to be respectful and actually no one gives a F*!
      Your Muslim brother from West 😉

  17. Assalamoalekum, I want to say that If not celebrating prophet(pbuh) birthday and neither visiting saint’s tomb is called wahabi then I am wahabi but if u say that I do not love prophet(pbuh) and do not believe in any of his sunnah then I m not a wahabi… Islam is about understanding and following Q’uran and our beloved prophet (pbuh) Hadith and his Sahaba’s way of living life..

  18. all the muslims r one.if its example is if u have a pain in ur finger all of ur body will be restless.a muslim cant be happy if his brother is in a pain or distress.one muslim’s life and wealth is haram on another muslim.A muslim is the one who believes in Allah and Prophet Muhammad as a last massenger of Allah.Allah love Prophet Muhammad so much that in Quran he says oh muslims say darood to Muhammad pbuh because Allah snd his angels also say darood on Muhammad.in Quran Allah has addressed to Muhammad pbuh in a very very loving way.called him as his beloved.if Allah loves his prophet so much how can we ignore that.we also love him more then our children and parents.Allah has created the whole universe for his beloved Muhammad pbuh.Muhammad was Allah’s abd and prophet.Allah has akready given prophet Muhammad thr respect of highest order how can we increase it more by saying that he was a noor.He was a noor in a sense that He spread the noor of Allah’s oneness and betterment of mankind in the whole universe as He is the best creation of Allah Almighty.so muslims brothers and sisters instead of fighting with each other on the name of religion lets follow islam by proving urself the best in ur manners.

  19. Wahabbis are followers of prophet Muhammed too. The story of Muhammed bin Abdul wahab is that he came to arabia, and taught the saudis the correct way of worshipping allah. bcz at that time, saudis were worshipping in a wrong way

    • Truth is worst to hear sometimes.
      100 percent terrorist are wahabis.
      Wahabis are the worst human on earth.
      World 90 percent terrorism directly or indirectly sponsored by Saudi wahabis.
      Saudi doesn’t have democracy.
      No rule
      No humanity
      Only terrorism
      And spreading terror by teaching wahabis culture to kill humans.
      But unfortunately America supports Saudi by supplying weopens so that Saudi can spread terror and to attack at innocent.
      May Allah bless America and his brother Saudi. 

    • may be but why did they use royal king their is no royal king only royal british wahabii ais not correct but fabrication by zionist jews and whites

  20. all the above is completly wrong .sunnis and wahabi are both strictly following Islam .it seems that u dont know any thing about Islam .
    u r trying to give the world a wrong image about Islam.what u have written is absolutly wrong either about sunnis or Wahabi

  21. This article is confusing for those who dont know fully about Islam.Wahabis dont celeberate birthday of Muhammad(SAW) because we believe that Muhammad (SAW) died on the same day as he was born i-e 12 RabiaulAwal.Therefore wew neither celeberate nor make it a Urs.This day is only a very respectable day for us

  22. It was very good to hear that apart from few brothers and sisters, many of us agree that we are one. One Ummah. Despite of all variations and differences, we still believe that we are one, we are muslims. These topics, blogs and sites are there only to create difference and hatred among us, but Masha Allah, we are strong and we will be strong and united, In Sha Allah..

  23. All wahabis all infidels fuck them they created isis and kill innocent people fuck them sideways their place is in hell alongside their sheikhs Ahhhhhh
    I fucking want to kill them being Christian is better than being a fucking WAHABI

    • Dear Brother in Islam

      Your vulgar outburst speaks volumes about you as an individual…

      Islam is a way of life…. the way you speak, walk,talk, and live.

      If you can’t respect others then at least respect yourself.

      May Almighty Allah keep us on the right path.


  24. The differences mentioned in the article is about the bralvi school of thought.In fact the followers of all major 4 schools are sunnies who have difference of opinion within themselves about what has been discussed therein.Therefore it has wrongly been claimed in the article to be the differences between sunnies and wahabis.There should be no violence by any one to impose their own brand of Islam.

  25. Salam,
    i wish to be getting email messages from these site on sunni and wahabi.

  26. I hate wahabis.

  27. Wahhabis do not follow orthodox Islam , the Sunni muslims trace their knowledge to Sahaba and through Ahlu Bayt . All the Four Imams trace their knowledge right back to Prophet pbh himself

  28. allhamdulilah

  29. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanbali

    Misconception created by this article about not following an Imam, Most of the Imam Hanbali Followers are labelled as Wahabi. Official Fiqh of Saudi Arabia is Hanbali.

    Please educate yourself before totally enforcing your point of view.

  30. Why does the followers of Islam us the TITLE Allah for the NAME of God, rather than his real name? The Hebrew form is Yahweh or the English form Jehovah.

  31. Totally biased article… this article is not comparing Sunni and wahabi but Sufism and Wahabism.. Sunni Muslims donot believe n follow the practices mentioned above

  32. Eliminate music and listening to songs. They are against watching television and drawings of living things which contain a soul is don by Sunni not only done by wahabi … And one more thing is that many wahabi and Sunnis both listen songs and watch t.v but drawing of living things are forbidden in both sects ……

  33. Wahabi follow md wahab najdi but sunni follow Prophet Muhammad Peace be up on him.

    Wahabism is a new religion invented by abdul wahab najdi bin 18th century by misscoding Quran and Hadees

    • According to shiryat or Islamic point of views those Muslim who don’t follow the holy path of prophit Mohammad s a w never called Muslim I challenge

  34. Assalam alikum varahmatullahi vabrakatuhu.
    Dear brothers and sisters.
    Can i ask one question?
    Who we are?
    You may think what kind of question is this?
    Yeah i know that.but think dearest brothers and sisters.we are following who?we all know we have to follow Mohammad (S).he (s)never ever told us to break in to sect.did he?no.then why we need sect.he was a greatman.we are not the follower of some sheiks and scholers.we are the follower of muhammad(s).then think and learn about his teaching as sunnah by his sahabas and followed by their three generation.they all teaches us the thousands of authentic hadeeth as sunnah of prophet (s).and the one and only the book of allah quraan.these are the two things we need to follow.dont follow any sect.because they are not gonna help us here after.they are not.so keep study and learn quraan and hadeeth and emprace it in our life.thats the real msg.so brothers and sisters dont hate each other.we are all muslim.because this is the teaching of prophet (s). Allah says in surah al imran 3:103
    وَاعْتَصِمُوا بِحَبْلِ اللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا ۚ وَاذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنتُمْ أَعْدَاءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْ فَأَصْبَحْتُم بِنِعْمَتِهِ إِخْوَانًا وَكُنتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِّنَ النَّارِ فَأَنقَذَكُم مِّنْهَا ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ آيَاتِهِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُو
    And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided. And remember the favor of Allah upon you – when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be guided.

    So please obay the commandment of Allah and prophet muhammad (s).
    May allah guide us through the right direction.and gave us the jannathul firdous.
    Ameeen ya rabbal aalameen.
    Asslam alikum varahmatullahi vabrakatuhu.

  35. Dear all,
    I would like to give my opinion on all this. I will agree with author that the so called sunni world has had lots of falsehood. I would ask you to think well. Why did our prophet came,you are all saying we are one ummah. Really!!!!!then you are all saying Allah was wrong he sent our prophet. Arabs in mecca believed in Allah at the time of the prophet but a big but there were also worshipping idols. So why dont you all say that he should leave to all to judge. Please go back in time and read historians book about imam wahab and you will see more clearly. If you are the ummah of muhammad ( saw) then stop doing all the things were being done before his coming like doing yrs for saints or believe in sufism or whatever,this was never the message of our dear prophet and definitely muslim who does that is not part of the ummah

  36. We should follow Quran , Sunnat , sahaba and Imam Hassan Hussain (A.S). We should not follow al wahab because he is nothing agaist them.He teached us wrong about our prophet (P.B.U.H) people who follow wahab don’t love Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H).

  37. Sunni who know about islam like me we don’t worship saints.we just respect them because with their teaching lots of people became muslim we just go to their grave recite surah fatiha and pray to ALLAH that make us like these saints and good people and make us one of them you love most.

  38. All religions are made by humans. All of them have a bit of philosophy,mythology, rituals and social laws. People need to be open-minded and not blindly follow religion. God is just a concept creates by humans.

  39. WahabIs u call them never follow Mohammad bin Abdul wahab, they follow Quran & Sunnah. It’s wrong information given here as said wahabis follow Mohammad bin Abdul wahab. We r Ahlihadees following Quran & Sunnah.

  40. Writer is illiterate he don’t any think about muslim, Man who believe in one and only true Creator and have complete faith in rasoolallah is last and final messenger is muslim anti muslim which will be in 72 type give different name in different time for muslim nowadays Wahabi is anti of all 72types and non muslim now you think muslim is muslim

  41. Why i don’t follow wahabis

    Islam was introduced in 1400 years ago not 100 years ago

    They said that Allah is palced in the trones of Allah

    They said our Nabi Saw is dead

    They uses abussing to aulia allah

    They said that Mother of rasool allah saw is dead on kuffar she is jahanami

    Wahabis. Started by a guy named Wahab in the late 1700s. Wahab’s enemies claimed his family were actually from a form of Ultra-Orthodox Judaism. Wahabis are considered the successors of the Kharijites and/or successors of Muawiyah’s son Yazid. If they truly are linked to Muawiyah & his son, that would mean they are linked to the 3rd Caliph (hence why they claim to be Salafis). As successors to the Kharijites (who killed Ali) and Yazid (who killed Ali’s son & successor Hussein), you can see why they have a blood feud with Shiites.

    They said themselfs ahle hadees ,and they started asking why u wear charms,why u took names apart from Allah in front of food
    Why u read Quran in craves
    My answer is that yes it is trooth that Nabi Saw had said that not to wear charms and sahaba had cut it three charms from his child ,,thats becoz it containging kuffar gods name in it ,,can any one say me that nabi had ban the charms that cantting names of allah or surah no of Quran
    And after all they said dont wear it becoz it contain black magic in it ,can any one says that quran holds black magic,no it not ans the person say’s is kafir

    Taking names in front of foodapart from allah
    Wont they know about qurbani that muslims takes the name in deed that esa aleh sawab to owr relatives,so if we take name in order to give someone esa aleh sawab whats wrong in it

    Reading quran in front of graves
    Can anyone say that which spacial place is Quran to be read

    They said that nabi is illatrate dont they know this hadees
    “I am the city of knowledge and ‘Ali is its gate” is not present in the current editions of the Sahih (alternatively called Jami` or Sunan) of al-Tirmidhi (d. 279 AH).

    They said respect ur prophet only that much as our elder brother
    Wont they know that prophet says that u can not enter the jannah until u respect me more than our mother and father

    Therefore we say that listen to sahabi not wahabi

    Wahabism is just that sect that promotes teroirism go and google it every sect of terorist isis or al qaida or any wahabi inspiration is there
    They are black spot to islam
    Islam is not that to kill inocents resists kalima on the gun point

    Just see there akeeda that they said Nabi is dead
    And they resists the kalima ”la ilaha ilalah mohammadul rasoolulah”
    Thats ,there is no god except allah and mohammad saw is prophet of allah

    They can realize that mohammad is ,,not it was

    When they cant even understood the kalima how the hell they call themselfs as muslim

    • Wow.. what a nice answer bro we want same strength in all sunni to show the real Islam only the real Ilm can defend us from these mushrikins.. and additionally they say they can’t listen from far then what about hajjatul wida?? There were 1lac 25k sahabis huzur wer at their camel kaswa when they ask which city it is which date it is and which month it is? All sahabis listen and huzur also listen all sahabis and replied Allah and his prophet knows well.. hadisun sahi Al isnad..

  42. Thanks for giving me this knowledge.

  43. The author is biggest fool he don’t have knowledge about islam

  44. this article is mostly related to muslims of south asia from pakistan ,india and bangladesh.I am an indian muslim and find every diffrence as right distinguisng begween sunni and wahhabi .Here in india muslims do celebrate birthday of prophet mohammad and visit sufi shrines.I also personally dont like visiting shrine and on birthday of prophet if not celebration like eid but some special charity programs would be done that would be great .I consider myself muslim and all sects to me are muslims also .If their is diffrence one should try to remove it rather than starting creating new mosques and many enemies of muslim benefit from this diffrence they create enemity between the two .And i also believe in modernation we have to adopt some good innovations in world happening like formation of equality and reject bad things like homosexuality .Be a muslim only not from any particular sect

  45. Whabi are terrorists that do not spare even children and women which is against islamic principle their leader abdul whabi was a devil who who divided muslims.today’s what is are agents of America. Their jihad is for gaining power they have nothing to do with islam,they r black spot on true islam.

  46. to be corrected and read 100% instead !00% Please.

  47. We muslim never celebrate our prophet birthday.And as u said “we believe our prophet still present in the world”.That is 100% wrong.Our prophet dead almost 1400+ Years Ago and he was an ordinary man like us.But Allah selected him for prophecy that’s why he honor as best person of entire human beings.Anyone will b like him if Allah want to.Allah decided to release Quran on him that’s wy he became prophet.But that’s doesn’t mean he is not Human.And allah Also take his life as like as ours.Just one thing is different from us that is “Before take his soul allah sent a angel to Ask the prophet will he wish to stay Alive on earth for more days?That’s the only thing Allah give prophets.But No Prophets “Adam-Mohammad” take that chance to stay few more days or years.Bcoz if they do agree to stay for more after that time end they must have to die.And that time also fixed by Allah.And Allah alas let them know how long that time is.But that is never happend bcoz no prophets wish to stay.There is also No shaai sunni or wahabi in Islam.Allah give us only Islam and fixed for us.Allah also said in Quran that” Take the rope of Allah firmly, and do not separate” another Ayat is for Prophet&aware all human kind that “O Prophet, you are not responsible for those who create evil” And Also mentioned by prophet in hadith Prophet mohammad(sm) peace be upon him predicted that could be 73 groups with tag of Islam creat after end of the world.and after destroyed entire universe under the sky at day of judgment 72 Group will be thrown In hell.Only 1 Group will be allow to go in heaven and that is one And Only “ISLAM”
    No () beside that.And True muslim must have to follow “The Holy QURAN” & “Hadith”

  48. Please do not divide muslim into sects let allah decide who is wrong and right follow quran and hadith

  49. Sunnis do not celebrate the Prophet’s birthday. This date is infact unknown. If you wish to commemorate the prophet’s birthday, rather than praise him, we are asked to worship Allah on Mondays by fasting, which is the weekday the prophet was born, but this is purely optional.

    We also do not all strictly follow a madhab. Some do, but some prefer to formulate their own opinion or receive fatwa from their sheikhs rather than follow one ruling just because an imam a thousand years ago said so. Rulings can change based on the time/place you live in.

  50. Hello sir. Many of the things written in this article are factually incorrect. For example, intercession is not practiced (prohibited even). We also don’t practice the prophet’s birthday, since the prophet himself didn’t even know it. Many many things like this in your article are just plain wrong to put it simply. To keep people from getting the wrong idea, I please ask you to correct this article a bit.

  51. this page have little bit wrong info. buz we all follow .Muhmmad (Saw) but diff. is only ..hayat n wafat..

  52. We muslims dont celebrate birthdays of saints we believe the prophet is a human and we are not wahabis just muslims so dont make up your own story

  53. We all are muslims and our prophet not devided us as wahabi or sunni muslims so we do not have right to devide us as wahabi or sunni we all are muslims.we believes in Almighty Allah and Mohhammad is the last massenger of Allah.we love Islam

  54. In Saudi Arabia, they are following the Islam according to Quran and Hadiths ( Prophet Muhammad PBUH and his Companions RA) way of following. Whatever is considered as a Shirk is a Shirk and is prohibited in Saudi Arabia.

    Remember, Allah is the creator and he is free from Death. And the other all of his creation are created to die. Even his Prophets and the Messangers ( PBUH and AS) .

    Madinah Munawwara is a part of Saudi Arabia so NO DOUBT the rightly guided people are following Islam according to Quran and Hadith ( The Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad PBUH and his companions).

  55. Asslam v alaikum v rhmtullahi v brkatuhu…we all belong to one nation… ALLAH better knows who is right n who is wrong.. now unity is most most most important….may ALLAH guide us …aamin…

  56. The article is not 100%. I as sunni also don’t believe in drawing living things etc. If theres difrences then definitely some people deviated becuase the Holy Phropet (peace be upon him) taught one way but also allowed good innovations. Should we just keep quite and say all sects are the same and allow the mislead group to propagate thier incorrect beliefs and spread thier teachings?? Then how would future Muslims know the difrences. Remember some deviated groups all started with the intention of misleading because that is the best way to stop something ie. islam. Is to change it…which constitutes as kafir so u cannot regard all sects are on the correct path. And kafir does not equal Muslim . It equals evil. And nothing good can from evil. So NO not all are Muslims But Allah Knows best

  57. I didn’t really understood much..All I know is there is no god but ALLAH and Muhammad saw is his servant and last messenger..I’m a human being..I don’t belong to any of the above category..

  58. Please stop this propoganda. This is only a shallow and cheap attempt at creating more differences amongst the Muslim brethren. I am a Muslim myself and this is all news to me. The truth of the matter is that we are all Muslims and believe in the oneness of Allah all mighty and prophet Muhammad P.B.U.H is his last prophet.

  59. I do not believe in Tawwasul and I do not celebrate the beloved Prophet Muhammad’s (Allah’s Peace and Blessings be upon him) birthday or Saints or holy man etc. But I do respect and hold the highest regards for him as the last and final Messenger of Allah Azza wa jal. I would ask or supplicate directly to Allah, without any intercession. I do salawat to Prophet Muhammad (Allah’s Peace and Blessings be upon him) though and I believe ALL muslims do too.

    My Question is, am I a Wahabbi?

    • Yes that makes you a Wahabi.
      The moment you talk about rejecting tawassul makes you a Wahhabi and this is the beginning of idoling god.

  60. To understand true Islam you must study the life of Mohammed pbuh, his friends his companions, his enemies, the people he mixed with how he behaved. How he responded to his friends and enemies, how he behaved to other mainstream religion during his time. How others showed him respect. What he ate what he didn’t, what type of things he used in his life,eg cups plates…How he became a prophet who guided him. What type of man was he what type of prophet was he what were the miracles that were bestowed to him by god.

    From his birth to his worldly death. We should also learn about the lineage of the prophet before and after him. Allah is part of our lives it does not matter if we believe or not We are his creation so allah believes in us.

    All of you must understand that all regions are a gift given to as a guide to live our lives. These were guides and if we used any of these guides are used to misguide then we are going against god. That is something that everyone of us must answer to our maker so it important to educate before we educate others and to make our own minds up. True Islam does not condem any sub groups but if one does then it is not Islam I don’t want to any one to this the wrong way but to me it a cult and that’s what cults do, thier belief is based on “my or the highway” approach.

    When a wahabi call themselves Sunni it is confusing. For any non muslim.

    Which is hijaking the word Sunni , also Wahhabism was born in the 18th century not the time of Mohamed (pbuh), it is an interpretation of one man Abdul Wahab (ism). As a Muslim he is entitled to his interpretation and appreciate his contribution, that does not mean his interpretation should be imposed on anyone. Anyone who’s islamic fair is based on abdul Wahab books or teaching is a wahabi, that is not a derogatory term that is a fact and if they choose to be guided by his books then it is their choice that does not make it right, but that does not make it wrong either.

    Most true Sunni’s are sufi based, I am not here to educate, my message is simple ask the questions research then YOU decide don’t let anyone impose their beliefs on you. You might say I am wrong, and that is not a bad thing, because it the choice you make not me. Only Allah God – and the rest of the 99 names – can answer the ultimate question, there is one thing I have learnt in my life.

    We all ask, what is the meaning of life? I have studied the Quran myself I found a clear cut answer. It says that we are put on this earth to worship god – so to me after that primary meaning the rest of what we do is secondary, from our jobs to eating, to caring to cleaning to crying to sleeping a means to exist, all we need to do is to worship nothing else.

    Lets be friends and do what we do and live and let live. some people like to punish others because they are doing something that is against thier religion but is it up us humans to punish or is it between them and Allah? I ask the questions but it’s up to you to get the answers.

    • Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab said: Know that the things that nullify Islam are TEN

      FIRST: polytheism, which is worshipping other gods besides the One true God, Allah [4:48; 5:72]

      SECOND: he commits Kufr by Ijma’ whoever places mediums between himself and Allah, mediums that he calls upon, ask forgiveness from, or rely on. [39:3; 35:14]

      THIRD: he commits Kufr whoever does not apply the Kufr principle upon polytheists, or whoever doubts that polytheists are infidels, or whoever corrects polytheists’ path. [3:19; 3:85]

      FOURTH: he is a disbeliever whoever thinks that another guidance is better than prophet Muhammad’s guidance, or another judgement is better than prophet Muhammad’s judgement, such as preferring Tawagheet’s (tyrants) judgement over prophet Muhammad’s judgement. [5:44]

      FIFTH: he commits Kufr whoever hates something that prophet Muhammad -peace and blessings be upon him- came with, even if he practices it. [47:9]

      SIXTH: he commits Kufr whoever mocks some of God’s religion, some of God’s reward, or some of God’s punishment. He commits kufr if he mocks the Messenger of Allah [saw]. [9:65-66]

      SEVENTH: he commits kufr, who dabbles in black magic or pays someone to do magic on his behalf. [2:102]

      EIGHTH: helping polytheists against Muslims. The evidence on that is the saying of Allah, the Exalted: And if any amongst you takes them (as Auliyâ’), then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allâh guides not those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong doers. (Al Maida 5:51)

      NINTH: he is a disbeliever whoever believes that some people are able to leave the Sharia’ of prophet Muhammad -peace and blessings be upon him- as Al-Khidr was able to leave the Sharia’ of Moses -peace be upon him-. [5:50]

      TENTH: the unwillingness to learn or practice the religion of God. The evidence on that is the saying of Allah, the Exalted: And who does more wrong than he who is reminded of the Ayât (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of his Lord, then turns aside therefrom? Verily, We shall exact retribution from the Mujrimûn (criminals, disbelievers, polytheists, sinners). (32:22). [The Ten Nullifiers of Islam by Muhammed Ibn Abdul-Wahab]
