Praying Over the People of Bid'ah

الصلاة على أهل البدع

Question:

What is the ruling upon abandoning the (funeral) prayer upon the people of innovation?

ترك الصلاة على أهل البدع ما حكمه ؟

Answer:

If the people of knowledge abandon it by way of estrangement because of their actions, then it is pertinent if their bid’ah did not necessitate takfeer of them; however if their bid’ah was the innovation (that necessitates) unbelief like the innovation of the Khawaarij or the Mu’tazilah or the Jahmiyyah then one should not pray over them.

إذا تركها أهل العلم من باب التنفير من عملهم فهو مناسب إذا كانت بدعتهم لا توجب تكفيرهم ، أما إن كانت بدعتهم مكفرة كبدعة الخوارج والمعتزلة والجهمية فلا يصلى عليهم.
