A MUSLIM SHOULD NOT CALL ANOTHER MUSLIM A KAFIR (DISBELIEVER/ INFIDEL)
INFIDEL.Sheikh “Muhammad Abduh” (1849-1905) the Head of the Islamic Verdict body (mufti) in Egypt & most Islamic countries in his time wrote in his article “Principles of Islam” that one of the Islamic principles is that a muslim should NOT accuse another muslim of “kufr” or name him a kafir/apostate/disbeliever/revert & it is an Islamic rule that if either a verbal or physical act done by any muslim can be construed from 100 points of view & aspects as an act of “kufr/revert & its doer as a “kafir/apostate” , while construed from just one point of view / aspect as an act of “belief “, then this act is to be deemed & construed as an act of belief & the muslim to be deemed as a believer
It is a rule in Islam that
من كفَّرَ مُسلِماً، فقد كفَرَ
translation “ whoever muslim says about another muslim that he is a kafir , then the sayer is the kafir “ .
