  • The  Arabic word “Kafir” كافر  & its plural ‘Kufar” كفار which is derived from verb “كفرKafar” meaning tohide or cover intransigently & in a rejecting manner or to deny the fact while knowing it ” is not exactly the same as the word ” infidel” or  “disbeliever” or “faith rejecter “ as translated in English , but since this word does not have an exact English synonym , this is why it is translated as such .`
  • Sheikh “Muhammad Abduh” (1849-1905) the Head of the Islamic Verdict body (mufti) in Egypt & most Islamic countries in his time wrote that the “Kafir “ /infidel is the intransigent rejecter who closes his eyes against the truth light & blocks his ears so as not to hear the truth words & he does not think or consider any truth clues or logic or evidence & he rejects the clues & evidences & proofs & sticks to blindly imitating & following his predecessors or arrogantly sticks to his opinion & those are the type Allah said about Q 8:23

إِنَّ شَرَّ الدَّوَابِّ عِندَ اللَّـهِ الصُّمُّ الْبُكْمُ الَّذِينَ لَا يَعْقِلُونَ ﴿٢٢﴾ وَلَوْ عَلِمَ اللَّـهُ فِيهِمْ خَيْرًا لَّأَسْمَعَهُمْ ۖ وَلَوْ أَسْمَعَهُمْ لَتَوَلَّوا وَّهُم مُّعْرِضُونَ

translation” Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are the deaf and dumb who do not use reason Had Allah known any good in them, He would have made them hear. And if He had made them hear, they would [still] have turned away, while they were refusing”——- & Q8:55

إِنَّ شَرَّ الدَّوَابِّ عِندَ اللَّـهِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا فَهُمْ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ

translation “Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are those who have been kufar (faith rejecters), and they do not believe”——-

  • Some of these faith rejecting people say that they also believe in God but have mediators or intercessors ( as their statues or sacred people ) to mediate between them & God & ALLAH has informed us (muslims) that their God is not the God we worship , because the God we worship is ALLAH & he has no mediators or intercessors between us & him , moreover the way of our worshipping is not their way because our worshipping is purely to ALLAH without any associates , whilst their worshipping is blemished with association of God in a polytheism way ,thus they have their own religion which is not ours & we have our own religion which is not theirs & they are not at all similar , see Q 109 ;3

‘قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ ﴿١﴾ لَا أَعْبُدُ مَا تَعْبُدُونَ ﴿٢﴾ وَلَا أَنتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا أَعْبُدُ

translation “Say, “O Kaferon (faith rejecters) , I do not worship what you worship, Nor are you worshippers of what I worship” ——–& Q 109:6

لَكُمْ دِينُكُمْ وَلِيَ دِينِ

translation “For you is your religion, and for me is my religion.”——-

  • Islam respects & secures the freedom of belief   & encourages us to have good relations with all people regardless of their belief & enacts fighting only for self /right defense, see   Q18;29 ” فَمَن شَاءَ فَلْيُؤْمِن وَمَن شَاءَ فَلْيَكْفُرْ , translation is ” so whoever wills – let him believe; and whoever wills – let him disbelieve” — ———–&   Q60;8

لَّا يَنْهَاكُمُ اللَّـهُ عَنِ الَّذِينَ لَمْ يُقَاتِلُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ وَلَمْ يُخْرِجُوكُم مِّن دِيَارِكُمْ أَن تَبَرُّوهُمْ وَتُقْسِطُوا إِلَيْهِمْ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُقْسِطِينَ ,

translation is ” Allah does not forbid you from those who do not fight you because of religion and do not expel you from your homes – from being righteous toward them and acting justly toward them. Indeed, Allah loves those who act justly.———-& Q5;87

وَلَا تَعْتَدُوا ۚ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُعْتَدِين
