Wahhabis believe god has physical parts but why don't sunni schools of thought declare takfir on them? whilst they condemn and declare takfir on shias for "deviations".

both do takfeer of each other .

الْإِمَامَ أَبَا بَكْرٍ مُحَمَّدَ بْنَ إسْحَاقَ بْنِ خُزَيْمَة يَقُولُ : مَنْ لَمْ يُقِرَّ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى عَرْشِهِ قَدْ سْتَوَى فَوْقَ سَبْعِ سَمَوَاتِهِ ؛ فَهُوَ كَافِرٌ بِهِ حَلَالُ الدَّمِ يُسْتَتَابُ فَإِنْ تَابَ ؛ وَإِلَّا ضُرِبَتْ عُنُقُهُ وَأُلْقِيَ عَلَى بَعْضِ الْمَزَابِلِ .

Imam Aba Bakr Muhammad bin Ishaq bin Khuzaima said: ‘Whoever does not admit that Allah is sitting on a throne above the seventh sky, is a Kafir and his blood must be shed. He must be made to repent. Otherwise his neck must be struck and thrown into the garbage.’

Majmo’a al-Fatawa, Volume 5, page 391


In ''al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah'' it is said that attributing a place to Allah
is disbelief.

In the book ''al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah'' compiled by shaykh Nidham and a group of 500 scholars, it is mentioned that: (/it is said:)


'' Whoever attributes a place to  Allah ta'ala has disbelieved ''


Following on from this it says:


'' And if he says, '' Allahu fi's-sama '' , [there are two cases:] if his aim was to simply repeat what has been transmitted to us in its apparent manner from the texts, then he has not disbelieved, but if through this, he desires 'the place' then he has disbelieved ''


Useful infomation :


 al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah is a compilation of fatawa from Hanafi scholars from Asia, mainly from the Indian sub-continent (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh...) that gathers together nearly all the opinions of the Hanafi school, and until today it is a reference with regards to the rulings of that school. It was written more than 300 years ago.

 It is said that 500 scholars from the Indian sub-continent worked on this compilation (a group of scholars from each stated was in charge of one chapter), and they would only write a fatwa when there was no dispute about it.

 The original title of this compilation is Fatawa-e-Alamgiri, in persian, from the name of sultan Aurangzeb, deceased in 1707, who had facilitated the compilation of these fatawa. They were quickly renamed ''al-Fatawa al-Hindiyyah'' in arabic.


- Here (/In it) it is clearly stated that attributing a place to Allah is disbelief. And also, he who says '' Allahu fi's-sama '' through these words, aiming to attribute a place to Allah has also disbelieved.

 Sunnis like to object on only our beliefs our love for ahlulbait as and our acts

They basically have no problem with all wahabis do

The reason is simple they can't go against Saudi and powerful wahabis but shia are easy and soft target for ppl 

There are Sunnis who also support shias and condemn wahabis

But the one who object our beliefs I mean shia beliefs find probably no problem with wahabism

There are Sunnis who defend shia as Muslims, and some who accept the fiqh of Ahl Bait عليهم السلام as a valid legal school. There is no unanimous agreement among sunnis about the Shia. Even some of the most vehement anti-Shia debaters still see Shia as Muslims, though consider them misled. It is only fair to represent each sect with its variations. There are sunnis on this site who would not appreciate being grouped as takfiri. It's always polite to add 'some Sunnis' not 'Sunnis'.
