Q&A related to Praying behind Saudi-Salafi Imams at Haramain&Showing disrespect to other sects

Assalamuaikum My Brother,

I would like to introduce me as Mohammed ******* **** Qadri, 

I am currently located in Saudi Arabia and belong to hyderabad - India. I have a small question of my interest and have some trouble solving it !!!!

My question is 

1. Do i being a practicing muslim of tareeqat need to show disrespect to other Sects either by words or by actions????...... If yes, Please provide me references ..... Other Sects would be like Shia / Wahabi / Salafi etc.... 

2. Is it prohibited to offer Salah in Haramain Shariffain by Sunni Mufti's???? As there is a word of mouth spread here not to offer Salah in Masjid e nabawi & makkah mukkarram as the imams there donot belong to our Jamat!!!! PLEASE PROVIDE ME THE REFERENCE HERE

Awaiting your response eagerly ....

Thanks & Regards

 Brother Mohammed Qadri Sahib, The answers in short is:
Answer for 1-  As Human being as children of Adam (A.S) we do not need to disrespect with words or deeds, any human being just because they label themselves as Wahhabi/Shia.
But we can disagree with those things they say/practice that goes against Qurana and Sunnah. We can disagree in three ways,
Either we can stop them with our hands, or we can prohibit them doing./saying such things with our tongue, or we can hate such deeds of those groups by our heart, and Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam says that it is (hating a bad thing when you are helpless to stop it) the weakest of faith.

Another advise of Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam in the end of times is , not to expose to this kind of people and the afflictions coming from them. We must keep distance from such fights and educate our family  children friends and relatives.

The first hadith can be found in Imam Nawawi's 40 hafith and the second one can be found in Sahih Al Bukhari, the chapter fitan of end of times.

On the authority of Abu Saeed Al-Khurdari, who said: I heard the messenger of Allah say: 
 "Whosoever of you sees an evil action, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart; and that is the weakest of faith."  related by Muslim

Answer 2- All Sunnis praying Jamath in Haramain Sharifain , do not follow word of mouth and rumors spread by some people.
Connect your heart with your Shaykh as your Imam in Salah where possible in all circumstances.
Because that way your heart will find peace and satisfaction.
Especially in Holy Haramain ,it has different spiritual connections,  that will suffice your prayers.

Because it has been proved in Hadiths (the high reward for praying in Haramain), and Prophet's words are infallible, The Absolute authority over Shari'ah and distributing rewards belong to Sayyiduna Rasool Allah alaihiswalathu wa salam, regardless of who is Imam there. 

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Prayer in my mosque is more excellent than a thousand prayers observed in other mosques except the Masjid al- Haram.  (Sahih Al Muslim,Kitab Al Hajj)

Yahya b. Sa'id (Allah be pleased with him) reported: I said to Abu Salih: Did you hear Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) making a mention of the excellence of prayer in the mosque of Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him)? He said: No (I did not hear directly from Abu Huraira), but I heard Abdullah b. Ibrahlm b. Qariz; say that' he had heard from Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) had said: Prayer in this mosque of mine is better than a thousand prayers. or. is like one thousand prayers observed in other mosques besides It, except that it be in al-Masjid al-Haram. This hadith has been narrated by Yabya b. Sa'id with the same chain of transmitters.  

So now, if someone say prayer there under some imams are not valid, then they have said a lie against what Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam said above.

So the promise of our Beloved Prophet alaihiswalathu wa salam regarding praying in haramain sharifain is preserved until the last day,regardless of whoever leads prayer there.
Because it is not the Imam who lead prayer gives reward.

But Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'la) is the giver and Prophet Muhammad (alaihiswalathu wa salam) is the distributor- Sahih Hadith

I hope the questions are answered here

Wa salam alaikum
