Praying Behind Someone From a Different Madhab

Imam Dardeer said in the explanation of the book of Imam Khaleel : “It is permitted to follow a blind man in the prayer. It is also permissible to follow a person in prayer who adopts a different school of fiqh in the prayers such as a Maliki follows a Shafi`i or Hanafi even if the Imam (leader of prayer) commits what nullifies wudu’ (ablution) such as touching his private parts or wiping only a part of his head during his ablution, etc according to the view of the school of the follower.
