In certain matters the Deobandi scholars concur  with the Wahabis, but in pertinent matters we deffer such as Waselaah, Taweez, Intercession, Hayat-e-Nabi (S.A.W) Ziyaarat-e-Nabi (S.A.W), etc - see our translation "Differences in the Ummat...." generally Wahabis refer to the followers of Sheikh Abdul Wahab Najdi.
