Notes: Kufr in Perspective: (23 things that make you become a kaafir)- Shaikh Faisal

Kufr in Perspective:
(23 things that make you become a kaafir)
By Shaikh Abdullah Faisal
(evening dars 4.14.11)

Nawaaqid al Islam = anything that nullifies your Islam

1.  Major Shirk (not minor)
-Praying/worshiping of false deity/ slaughtering animals in the name of false deities
-Major Shirk nullifies your shahadah and makes you become a kaafir
--If you die as a mushrik w/o making amends, there's NO hope in the Hereafter
Verily, Allah forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allah in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin. (4:48)

2. Practicing black magic
They followed what the Shayatin (devils) gave out (falsely of the magic) in the lifetime of Sulaiman (Solomon). Sulaiman did not disbelieve, but the Shayatin (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the two angels, Harut and Marut, (2:102)
 --Punishment for those who practice magic is one strike of the sword (the one who has contact with the jinns and if he has contact with the jinns he is a kaafir and needs behedding)

3. If you place between yourself and Allah an intermediary calling upon the intermediary hoping the intermediary will carry your dua to Allah
--to place between urself and Allah a zulfaa = intermediary
--(eg. This is the aqeedah of the Barelvis and Shiites, they have similar aqeedah – because Ahmad Raza, who founded Barelvis, was a Shiite who pretended to be Sunni to lead people astray)
--Allah 'tala dismisses those who use intermediaries as liars and kaafirs
Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allah only. And those who take Auliya' (protectors and helpers) besides Him (say): "We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allah." Verily, Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever. (39:3)
--they are dismissed as kaafirs because they are Muslims in name only, they recite Quran without knowing what they are reciting, saying with their lips what is not in their hearts (Muslims by NAME not NATURE and Muslims by CULTURE not CONVICTION)
--this is why they are grave worshippers

 4. If you refuse to pronounce a kaafir - kaafir!  The hukum is applied when the hukum is clear
--When you knowing refuse to call a kaafir a kaafir, you become a kaafir
(eg. Refusing to pronounce Salman Rushdie a kaafir, he who slandered Allah (swt) and His Rasool (saws)
***TAKFEER is not a choice - you are commanded - it is fard***
--In Islam, there are things you don't have a choice (eg. sexual prefererance)

--TAKFEER is not a choice when the kufr is clear (eg.  someone believes Aisha had an affair/ the Quran was abrogated, he is a kaafir and you must pronounce him kaafir)
The Shia believe that at the time of Mahdi’s return Imam Mahdi will resurrect Aisha (Prophet Mohammad’s wife) and execute the law of Hudud on her, for committing Zina (adultery) during her marriage. (Al-Anwar Al-Numaniyah, vol. 1, p.  161, Tafsir al-Shafi, vol. 2, p. 108, Haq al-Yaqeen, vol. 2, p. 256, Hayat al-Qulub, vol. 2, p. 611)

--You are commanded to judge by what Allah ‘tala has revealed (not for personal reasons or hawa)
And so judge (you O Muhammad) between them by what Allah has revealed and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they turn you (O Muhammad) far away from some of that which Allah has sent down to you. And if they turn away, then know that Allah's Will is to punish them for some sins of theirs. And truly, most of men are Fasiqun (rebellious and disobedient to Allah). (5:49)

--(eg. Shaikh bin Baz’s kufr- for some people his is not clear despite his giving wala to the crusaders, better to leave it to the scholars).  But those who make takfeer on Bin Baz cry foul, why the double standard when it is agreed that the Mufti of Grozny deserved to be killed as kaafir (who sided with Russians) but not Bin Baz (who sided with Americans)  Why the double standard? Racism
--Ibn Taymiyyah- he made takfeer on the wicked scholars.
“A scholar who abandons what has learnt from the Qur’an and the Sunnah and follows a ruler who does not rule in accordance with the teaching of Allah and His Messenger, is an apostate and a disbeliever who deserves punishment in this world and in the hereafter.” –”Al-Fataawa”, Vol. 35/373.

--Whosoever you give your allegiance to, that’s what you become
O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliya' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliya' to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers and unjust) (5:51)

5.  If you reject one of the 5 pillars of Islam/ 6 pillars of Eeman (that which is known of Islam by necessity)
In their hearts is a disease (of doubt and hypocrisy) and Allâh has increased their disease. A painful torment is theirs because they used to tell lies.   (2:10)

The (true) believers are those only who believe in Allah and His messenger and afterward doubt not, but strive with their wealth and their lives for the cause of Allah. Such are the sincere. (49:15)
--You don’t have to reject. Just to doubt makes you a kaafir
--Shahadah has 7 conditions and you are not allowed to doubt an aspect of the deen (things about Islam which is known by necessity)
6 pillars of Eeman
1) Allah tala
2) His angels and books, 
3) His prophets
4) His books,
5) Believe in Judgment Day  
6) Believe in Qadr

7.  If you ridicule an aspect of the Deen
--(eg. Mocking/Ridiculing hijab/ beard/ prayers)
Say: "Was it at Allah and His Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) and His Messenger that you were mocking?" Make no excuse; you have disbelieved after you had believed. (9:65-66)
--Smear, Sneer, Jeer < Modus Operandi of the kuffar
--(eg. When Danish people used cartoons to mock the Rasool (saws), they were actually mocking Allah 'tala
--White infidels copy each other to do evil things (eg. BNP)
Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islâm, the Qur'ân and Prophet Muhammad (SAW)) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures. (98:36)
--Shaikh Faisal arrested in prison for preaching the tafseer for this ayat
--Surahs Tauba and Muhammad – Kuffar forced to stop teaching these b/c they are too radical!

8.  If you dislike an aspect of the Deen (Quran/Sunnah)
--If you hate the difficulties of practicing an aspect of the deen you're still a Muslim
--But if your hatred causes you to deny, you're a kaafir [hijab/jihad, as both as fard]
Jihâd is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allâh knows but you do not know. (2:216)
South African tour:
--If you hate the difficulties of practicing an aspect of the deen you're still a Muslim but if your hatred causes you to deny, you're a kaafir [hijab/jihad, as both as fard and known of Islam by necessity]
That is because they hate that which Allâh has sent down (this Qur'ân and Islâmic laws etc.), so He has made their deeds fruitless. (47:9)

9. to believe in Qur'an but not Sunnah
--These are called Parvazi - they claim to believe in Qur'an (they are liars)
--If they did they would believe in Hadith because Allah tala said to follow HADITH
Say (O Muhammad to mankind): "If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur'an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (3:31)

And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it), And fear Allâh. Verily, Allâh is Severe in punishment. (59:7)

--We are commanded to pray 5x a day (we get baraka for 50x a day because of Allah’s mercy to His servants).  But Allah didn’t tell you how to pray (eg. how to know how many rakat for each salat).  You need hadith.
--You need hadith to know many things that are not in the Quran (eg. you are not allowed to marry and live with two sisters simultaneously or with an aunt/niece)
--Shiites don’t like us to quote Bukhari, claiming they follow their imams but then quote Bukhari when it suits their agenda.  The situation of the Shiites is pitiful, pathetic and appalling.  They are not Muslims, they are liars
 Ifk = big lie

10. to believe there will be a Prophet after Muhammad (saws)
(eg. Mirza Gulam Ahmad)

11. if you elevate someone above Muhammad (saws)
(eg. Shiites elevate their imams above Muhammad)
--Even to elevate a prophet above Muhammad makes u a kaafir, elevating any human being above Muhammad is kufr

“Allah often lies and does mistakes” [Usool-al-Kafi, page 328, Yacoob Kulayni, Vol. 1]
Imam posses more attribute than a Prophet posses. (Asool Kaafi, Vol. No. 1, Page No. 388)
Imams are God (Jila-ul-Ayoun, Vol. No. 2, Page No. 85)
