Can a rawafid Shiah - Muslim lead the prayer?

... and is a rawafid Shiah a Muslim, and can he lead a prayer, and or can he stand among us in a prayer

Anyone can stand among us in a prayer provided its outward requirements are kept - perhaps Allah will lead him to repent through it - but he cannot lead it.

At the same time, Muslims are obliged to avoid and shun the company of innovators as in al-Nawawi's Maqasid. On the first question see the post "Re: Ithnaa Asharis? [updated]" of 23 March 2001 on soc.religion.islam and the msa-ec archives at sunnah.org. And Allah knows best.
