Is it permissible to eat the Slaughtered meat of people who claim to be Muslims and indulge in grave worship and invoking other than Allah for help? Will their status be same as the people of book or disbelievers?

Do you mean eating the Mushrikeen's meat or the meat which slaughtered by a Mushrikeen? It's both haraam, anyway. –  Irfan Feb 27 '13 at 8:48

who claim to be Muslims that needs specifics. Otherwise it is the same question as halal or haram. –  muslim1 Feb 27 '13 at 17:29
    
A person who has said the shahadat is a Muslim. Period! –  R Syed Feb 28 '13 at 3:24

This is a critical question , hence i would just quote relevant fatwa:

Whoever believes in Muhammad (peace be upon him) then associates others in worship with Allah through making Sujud (Prostration), vowing or slaughtering for any one other than Allah is not similar to the People of the Book.

They are apostates who should be asked to repent for three days after pointing out the truth to them. If they do not repent, they should be killed.

Their properties will go to Bayt-ul-Mal (Muslim treasury) and not to their Muslim inheritors.

It is not permissible for them to marry Muslim women and the animals slaughtered by them are unlawful for Muslims. Moreover, their marriage contract to Muslim women should be anulled.

The matter is different with regard to disbelievers from among the People of the Book. They inherit from each other and their marriage is valid. The animals they slaughter are lawful and they are to be invited to accept Islam. If they do not accept Islam, they have to pay Jizyah (poll tax required from non-Muslims living in an Islamic state).

They should not be killed due to their disbelief.

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