I always wanted to learn authentic Islamic education classically. But I couldn't find any such institution in india specially for girls, in English language. Recently I found one such institution (Aspire college of excellence) in Chennai where they teach Arabic, Aqeedah, Fiqh and Seerah.
And as I discovered more, I found out, there approach is or they are from the Ahle-hadees sect. Whereas I am highly convinced and follow deoband approach. So, 1. What are the chances that Ahle-hadees and deonband's classical study of Islam is the same? 2. Will there be clashes between my understanding of their approach of Islamic studies?
Kindly answer asap.

The answer to your question is as follows:

There are differences between the Ahle-Hadeeth and the Hanafis on intellectual, jurisprudential and theological issues. Ahle-Hadeeth follow Salaf in Aqeedah whereas Hanafis are Maturidi and Ash'ari in Aqeedah. Similarly in Fiqh, Hanafis follow Imam Abu Hanifa, while Ahle-Hadeeth do not follow any Imam. According to the Hanafis, taqlid (following an Imam) is obligatory, while among the Ahl al-Hadith, taqlid is an un-Islamic act. There is disagreement in many such doctrinal discourses. Therefore, you have to opt for a madrassa or school of Hanafi school of thought, so that you can be aware of the correct point of view of Islamic sciences.

And Allah knows best
