Ihave came across the word ''deobandi'' online a couple of times and always wondered what deobandi was about? There is one big sunni mosque in southall / london ''abu baqr siddique ''where i went to pray. And the bearded brothers there were looking proper wahabi to me.
I am not sure if this has been discussed previously on shiachat, but my question is do deobandis have similar views as the wahabis?
Are deobandis hostile towards the shias ? (ie writing books against shiaism ?)
I thought hanafi was quite something different then deobandis..hmmm!
does any 1 know ??

The Deobandi are Muslims of South Asia and Afghanistan who follow the fiqh (tradition of jurisprudence) of Imam Abu Hanifa. The name comes from Deoband, India, where the madrassa Darul Uloom Deoband is sited. Like majority of Sunni Muslmis, they consider the Shia sect to be an apostate group.
The five main points of the Deobandi movement are:
Tawheed: (Monotheism) of Allah, no one shares His attributes.
Sunnah: Following and loving the methodology of the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad in every small and big matter.
Hubb us Sahaabah: Love of the companions of the Messenger of Allah, and following their way.
Taqleed wal Ittiba': Giving preference to the jurisprudence of one of the earliest jurists of Islam over that of later jurists.
Jihaad fi Sabeelillah: Doing Jihaad in the way of Allah against every evil.
The Deobandi follow Imam Abu Mansur Maturidi, (d.333H) a Hanafi scholar, in Ilm ul Kalaam (Rhetorics) i.e the science of refuting attacks on Islam made using Grecian logic.
The Taliban are reputed to follow the teachings of the Deoband school, although some non-Deobandis claim they follow an extremely strict and simplistic version of the school's teachings. Many of the Taliban leadership completed their studies in Islamic subjects at the Deobandi institute Dar ul Uloom Haqqaaniyah at Akora Khattak in Pakistan.
Some of the early Deobandi scholars included Maulana Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi, Maulana Qasim Nanotwi and Maulana Yaqub Nanotwi. Maulana Rahmatullah Kairanvi, the famous polemicist who emigrated to Arabia after the 1857 war, was also one of their associates.
