Question

Are barelvi beleifs of Imam Ahmed Raza Khan wrong?? im sunni muslim barelvi. how can u say the barelvis are corrupt when they are the majority on the world??

Answer

It is our view that Ahmad Raza Khan held many views inconsistent with the
Shari'ah. The Barelwis are certainly not in majority.

However, assuming they are in majority, that is no criteria of being on the
right path. If that criteria is accepted and applied, it will imply that the
Kuffaar who exceed the number of Muslims (four times in number) are on the
right path.

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
