Salah behind Imams of unknown creed

Q 3: What is the ruling on eating the meat of an animal slaughtered by a person whose creed is unknown and offering Salah behind such a person?

A: If the outward deeds of a Muslim that indicate belief are unknown and there is no indication of creedal deviation, it will be permissible to eat the meat of animals slaughtered by him and to offer Salah behind him.

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
