What is the status of the Ghayr Muqallideen and the followers of Maududi in the Shari’ah? What is the proof for assigning this status to them? The discussion to follow will clarify the misconceptions of some people who believe that both these groups should be included amongst the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah. Although both these groups belong to the body of the Muslims, they are not amongst those of the Ummah described in the Ahadeeth as the group to attain salvation (the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah). This is because their differences with the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah are fundamental and pertaining to principles; not merely restricted to derivations.
