What is the meaning of the Aathir? 
  • The Arabic word Aathir means an excuser 
  • He gives the excuse of ignorance for people who dabble in major shirk as well as the kaafiroon, munafiqoon, murtaddoon and the zindiq 
  • In order for a person to be an Aathir, the kufr shirk and zandaqa has to be clear
  • If these things are not clear, then the person is not an Aathir
  • It is incumbent on us to make takfir on the Aathir because Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab has made takfir on the Aathir in his book Nawaaqid al Islam
  • Takfir on the Aathir is the third nullifier; hence, he said:

MUHAMMAD IBN ABDUL WAHHABمن لم يكفر المشركين او شك في كفرهم او صحح مذهبهم THIRD: he commits Kufr whoever does not apply the Kufr principle upon polytheists, or whoever doubts that polytheists are infidels, or whoever corrects the polytheists’ path. [3:19; 3:85] Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab 

  • the reason why the Aathir is a kaafir is because he has absolutely no regard for the judgement of Allah
  • whenever Allah pronounces a person a kaafir or a mushrik and we pronounce the person a Muslim, we are guilty of trying to veto Allah
  • anyone who tries to veto Allah is a kaafir
  • this the plight of the Aathir 
  • because he pronounce the kuffar and mushrikeen Muslim, he thinks he knows more than Allah and thus he is trying to veto Allah
  • it is for this reason Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab made takfir on the Aathir the third nullifier of Islam
  • One of the most famous Aathir of our time was Nasir Den Albani
  • Albani was extreme with his irja
  • so he was of the Ghulaat Murjia [i.e. the extreme Murjia]
  • Albani claimed if a person insults Allah or Muhammad he is not a kaafir
  • he gave the excuse of ignorance to those who insult Muhammad
  • by doing so, he went against the ijma of the ummah.
  • Below is a fatwa from the classical scholars to prove that it is our ijma that the one who insults Muhammad is a kaafir and the one who refuse to make takfir on him is also a kaafir

Al-Imam Ishaq Ibn Rahuwayh said: (All Muslims are in consensus that whoever curses Allah or curses His Messenger, or rejects something from what Allah revealed, or killed a prophet, that he is a kafir; and even if he accept what was revealed by Allah. And Al-Khattabi said, "I don't know of anyone who disagrees with the obligation of his killing." And Muhammad Ibn Sahnun said that the scholars are in consensus that the one who curses the Messenger is a Kafir; and whoever doubts his Kufr is a Kafir.) Taken from (Kitab al-Sarim al-Maslul 'ala satim al-Rasul, by Ibn Taymiyya)

  • in the fatwa above, the ulamaa made takfir on the Aathir
  • and those Muslims who believe we cannot make takfir on the Aathir are not acquainted with the fatawa of the classical scholars
THE IDEOLOGY OF THE AATHIR 

  • The Aathir claims you are not allowed to make takfir on the mushrikeen because you did not establish the hujjah against him, so it is not in your place to make takfir on him
  • The Indians in the Amazon jungle walk the forest half naked and have never heard about Islam
  • so they worship others besides Allah
  • We are not allowed to call them Muslims
  • because a Muslim is a person who worships Allah alone and believes the the Prophet Muhammad is his last Prophet and Messenger
  • Likewise, we have Aborigines in Papua New Guinea who worship their ancestors
  • and when they kill their enemies in battle, the eat their enemies
  • claiming by eating the flesh of their enemies, they will increase their power
  • We are not allowed to call these people Muslims because Islam didn’t reach them
  • We have to pronounce them mushrikeen because they are worshipping false deities
  • and a mushrik cannot be a Muslim because the word Muslim means a person who worships Allah alone and nothing else

EVIDENCES TO REFUTE THE AATHIR

  • We have Quranic evidences to prove that Allah has made takfir on the mushrikeen even before they hear about Islam; hence, Allah said

Evidence #1 

Those who disbelieve from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and among Al-Mushrikun, were not going to leave (their disbelief) until there came to them clear evidence. (Al-Baiyinah 98:1) 

  • In the above mentioned Ayah Allah has made takfir on the mushrikeen as well as the People of the Book even before the hujjah came to them
  • The following Ayah is the second evidence to prove that Allah pronounced people mushrikeen even before the hujjah came to them

Evidence #2

And if anyone of the Mushrikun (polytheists, idolaters, pagans, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) seeks your protection then grant him protection, so that he may hear the Word of Allah (the Qur'an), and then escort him to where he can be secure, that is because they are men who know not. (At-Tawbah 9:6) 

  • It is worthy of mentioning that Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab has made takfir on all the people who place between themselves and Allah a medium 
  • and make dua to the medium hoping that the medium will transmit their dua to Allah

Evidence #3

من جعل بينه وبين الله وسائط يدعوهم ويسالهم الشفاعة ويتوكل عليهم كفر اجماعا 
SECOND NULLIFIER: he commits Kufr by Ijma’ whoever places mediums between himself and Allah, mediums that he calls upon, ask forgiveness from, or rely on. (39:3; 35:14) MUHAMMAD IBN ABDUL WAHHAB


Evidence #4

  • In the Ayah below Allah took away the excuse of ignorance for people who worship false deities, hence Allah said: 

And (remember) when your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their seed (or from Adam's loin his offspring) and made them testify as to themselves (saying) : "Am I not your Lord?" They said: "Yes! We testify," lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection: "Verily, we have been unaware of this." (Al-A'raf 7:172) 

Evidence #5 

  • In the Ayah below Allah told us that some pagan Arabs were on a ship
  • and when the ship was about to sink, due to a heavy storm and death for them was imminent 
  • they went back to their natural instincts and prayed to Allah alone
  • and begged Allah for help
  • they didn’t make dua to idols and beseech them for help

And when they embark on a ship, they invoke Allah, making their faith pure for Him only, but when He brings them safely to land, behold, they give a share of their worship to others. (Al-'Ankabut 29:65) 

  • realizing what was about to occur, they did't pray to their idols, they prayed to Allah alone 
  • and promised to continue to worship Allah alone when reaching dry land
  • but when they arrived safely on dry land, they broke their promise and worshipped idols
  • This story about the pagans on the ship is clear evidence that it is our natural instincts to worship Allah alone
  • therefore, we are not allowed to give the excuse of ignorance to anyone who worships a false deity

Evidence #6

  • The Ayah below is clear evidence that every human was created with the natural instincts to worship Allah alone without ascribing partners unto Him

So set you (O Muhammad SAW) your face towards the religion of pure Islamic Monotheism Hanifa (worship none but Allah Alone) Allah's Fitrah (i.e. Allah's Islamic Monotheism), with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalqillah (i.e. the Religion of Allah Islamic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. [Tafsir AtTabari, Vol 21, Page 41] (Ar-Rum 30:30) 

Evidence #7

  • The Hadith below is clear evidence that every child was born on fitrah to acknowledge that Allah alone deserve to be worshipped

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger said, “Every child is born on the religion (of Islam). Then his parents make him a Jew, a Christian or a polytheist.” Someone said, “O Messenger of Allah, (what about) those who die before (their parents convert them)?” He said, “Allah knows best what they would have done (if they had survived).” [al-Bukhari (6599) and Muslim (2658)] 

Evidence #8

  • The Hadith below states that when the pagans of Quraysh came to sign a historic treaty with the Prophet [saw] at Hudaybiyyah, they insisted on putting one God on the document
  • and that God is Allah and Allah alone. 
  • Hence, even pagans know that Allah alone deserve to be worshipped 

The Prophet (PBUH) reported that Allah said, "I created my servants in the right religion but devils made them go astray". The Prophet (PBUH) also said, "Each child is born in a state of "Fitrah", then his parents make him a Jew, Christian or a Zoroastrian, the way an animal gives birth to a normal offspring. Have you noticed any that were born mutilated?" (Collected by Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim). 

"...Suhail said to the Prophet "Please conclude a peace treaty with us." So, the Prophet called the clerk and said to him, "Write: بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ 'Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Raheem' (In the Name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful)." Suhail said, "As for الرَّحْمَنِ 'ar-Rahman (Beneficent), by Allah, I do not know what it means. So write: بِاسْمِكَ اللهُمَّ 'Bismika Allahumma' (By Your Name O Allah)..." [al-Bukhari (2731) and Muslim (1784)]

  • It is worthy of mentioning that when the pagans of Quraysh were in Makkah
  • they use to worship 360 idols at the kaaba
  • but when they came to sign a historic treaty with the Prophet
  • they went back to their natural instincts and insisted 
  • that they only wanted to see one God on the paper
  • and that God is Allah alone
  •  
Evidence #9 

  • When Allah sent Musa to the Pharaoh, he rejected faith
  • and the Pharaoh claimed that there is no God above the heavens
  • but he is the one and only God
  • So Allah punished the Pharaoh with various punishments
  • like the lice, locusts, frog, famine, and flood
  • When the Pharaoh realized he could  no longer cope with Allah’s punishment
  • he approached Musa and begged Musa to pray to Allah to remove the torment from him. 
  • Hence, Allah said about the Pharaoh:

And when the punishment fell on them they said: "O Musa (Moses)! Invoke your Lord for us because of His Promise to you. If you will remove the punishment from us, we indeed shall believe in you, and we shall let the Children of Israel go with you." But when We removed the punishment from them to a fixed term, which they had to reach, behold! They broke their word! (Al-A'raf 7:134-135) 

  • if the Pharaoh was a real atheist, why did he approach Musa and begged Musa to make a dua to Allah to remove the punishment from him?
  • Even though the Pharaoh was the most famous atheist to walk the face of the earth
  • still he approached Musa and begged Musa to pray to Allah on his behalf
  • this is clear evidence that there is no real atheist in the world.

 Evidence #10

  • The Aathir claims we are not allowed to make takfir on a person who is worshipping a false deity until we take Islam to the person
  • This claim is wrong and their creed is false because the holy Prophet [saw] made takfir on his father, who was a pagan
  • even though his father died before Islam came and didn’t receive the hujjah

Narrated from Anas (RA) that a man said: “O Messenger of Allah, where is my father?” He said: “In Hell.” When he turned away he called him back and said: “My father and your father are in Hell.” [Sahih Muslim (Vol. 1, pg. 191) No. 203]

 Evidence #11

  • In the Ayah below Allah told us that the Pharaoh and his henchmen were all convinced that Allah exist
  • and Musa was a true Messenger of Allah
  • this is clear evidence that Allah created us with the natural instincts
  • to recognize the haqq from the baatil

And they belied them (those Ayat) wrongfully and arrogantly, though their ownselves were convinced thereof [i.e. those (Ayat) are from Allah, and Musa (Moses) is the Messenger of Allah in truth. (An-Naml 27:14)

10 TYPES OF AATHIR 

1. The man who refuses to make takfir on the people of the book 

  • This is the plight of the Sufis 
  • Sufis love Christians and Jews more than they love you 
  • they hate you and call you a wahhabi 
  • bcz you are on tawheed 
  • and you can expose him 
  • Allah has made takfir on the Jews and the Christians many times in the Quran 

Surely, they have disbelieved who say: “Jesus, the Messiah is Allah.  (Al-Ma'idah 5:72) 

Surely, they are disbelievers who say: "Allah is the third of the three deities in a Trinity."(Al-Ma'idah 5:73) 

  • In the above mentioned Ayahs, Allah has made takfir on the Christians for their pagan creed
  • so any Muslim who refuses to make takfir on them is an Aathir
  • and he is trying to veto Allah
  • It is for this reason we make takfir on the Aathir
  • Not only did Allah make takfir on the People of the Book,
  • in the following Ayah, He declares them to be worst of created creatures

Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Qur'an and Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikun will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures. (Al-Baiyinah 98:6) 

  • In the Hadith below the Prophet promised the Hell-fire to Jews and Christians who heard about him and died rejecting him as a Prophet

He in Whose Hand is my soul! No member of this Ummah, no Jew or Christian, hears of me but dies without believing in what I was sent with, but will be among the people of the Fire. Muslim

2. The one who refuse to call the Shia kuffaar 

  • The Shia are kuffar bcz their ideology is obnoxious, repugnant and repellent 
  • my thesis to graduate from the University was to refute the Shia 
  • We shall give you a mountain of evidence from the Shia books to prove to you that they are the worst of kuffar

WHY WE MAKE TAKFIR ON THE SHI'ITES 

  • When they pray, they call upon the dead by saying “Ya Ali”, “Ya Hassan”, “Ya Hussain”
  • This is major shirk because they are praying to others other than Allah
  • and to pray to others than Allah is the second nullifier of Muhammad ibn Abul Wahhab

SECOND: he commits Kufr by Ijma’ whoever places mediums between himself and Allah, mediums that he calls upon, ask forgiveness from, or rely on. [39:3; 35:14]

  • According to Khomeni the Prophet Muhammad [saw] did not  succeed in establishing justice on earth
  • hence, he said

Every prophet came to establish justice on Earth. His aim was also to establish justice but he was not successful. The same is the position of the Seal of the Prophets who came to reform human society and establish justice but failed during his lifetime. Ittihad wa-yak-jihati:15

  • Allah refuted the kufr of Khomeni in the following Ayah:

This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your way of life. (Al-Ma'idah 5:3) 

  • The Shia make takfir on the Sahabas claiming that all are apostate except for three [Miqdad ibn Aswad, Ammar ibn Yaasir and Salman al Farsi
  • They also believe the Quran is corrupted 

  • SHIA HUJJAH: The present Quran is in an altered, corrupted and distorted form.. (Fatuhat-e-Shia, p. 129)

  • Even though Allah promised to protect the Quran in the following Ayah

Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur'an) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption). (Al-Hijr 15:9)

  • The Shia elevate their Imams above all the Prophets and Angels

SHIA HUJJAH: "Certainly the Imam has a dignified station, a lofty rank, a creational caliphate, and a sovereignty and mastery over all the atoms of creation. It is definitely a basic belief in our school of thought, that our Imams occupy a station unattainable by either an angel or a major Prophet. Khomeini: "Al-Hukumah Al-Islamiyyah" Page 52

SHIA HUJJAH: It is a fundamental principle of faith that our (Shia) Imams have ranks higher than the ranks of angels & God's prophets. (Khomeini's book, Hukuma Islamiya, p. 52)

  • The Shia believe that their Imams have the attributes of Allah 

SHIA HUJJAH: The spiritual status of the imam is the universal divine vice-gerency that is sometimes mentioned by the imams (peace be upon them). It is a vice-gerency pertaining to the whole of creation, by virtue of which all the atoms in the universe humble themselves before the holder of authority (imams). It is one of the essential beliefs of our Shia school that no one can attain the spiritual status of the imams, not even the cherubim or the prophets. Imam Khomeini, Islam and Revolution: Writings and Declarations of Imam Khomeini, (Berkeley: Mizaan Press, 1981)

  • The Shia accuse Ayisha of having an affair

SHIA HUJJAH: 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)

  • Even though Allah cleared her name in the Quran

Verily! Those who brought forth the slander (against 'Aishah the wife of the Prophet SAW) are a group among you. Consider it not a bad thing for you. Nay, it is good for you. Unto every man among them will be paid that which he had earned of the sin, and as for him among them who had the greater share therein, his will be a great torment. (An-Nur 24:11)

  • Dont go to the chat rooms of Shia on because you will become confused.com 
  • I have seen a few people apostate from Islam and become Shia after visiting their chat rooms
  • Some go out of curiosity, but curiosity killed the cat
  • Because the ideology of the Shia is based on kufr, shirk and zandaqa
  • anyone who doesn’t make takfir on the Shia is an Aathir and a kaafir
  • This is the plight of some members of al Qaida
  • they are kuffar because they don’t make takfir on the Shia

3. The one who refuse to make takfir on the Berailvi and the Sufi 

  • The Aathir claims we are not allowed to make takfir on the grave worshipping Berailvis 
  • because the hujjah of tawheed did not reach them, hence they are still jahil
  • and because the hujjah did not reach them they are still Muslims 
  • Let me remind the Aathir that the Berailvis and the Sufis who worship the graves recite 
  • “Ash’hadu an laa ilaaha illal laa” in the adhan, in the iqama and in the tashahud
  • five times a day everyday
  • “Ash’hadu an laa ilaaha illal laa” means “I testify that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah
  • If the Berailvis recite “Ash’hadu an laa ilaaha illal laa” five times a day everyday
  • how can you claim the hujjah did not arrive to them?
  • The mere fact that they recite the shahada, is clear evidence that the hujjah has arrived to them
  • because the shahada is the hujjah
  • To claim that the Berailvis did not receive the hujjah of tawheed, is a big lie
  • because when they pray, they recite “iyyaka na’budu wa iyyaka nasta’een”
  • which means “You alone we worship, and You alone we ask for help”
  • They recite this ayah 17 times a day everyday
  • inside of Surah Fatiha
  • so how can you claim that the hujjah didn’t arrive in the midst of the Berailvis
  • This claim of the Aathir is a big lie
  • A Berailvi who worships the graves is a worst kaafir than the Hindus and the Buddhist
  • because these mushrikeen do not recite the shahada
  • but the Berailvi recites the shahada five times a day everyday 
  • yet he worships false deities
  • It is for this reason Allah said the grave worshippers are 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. (Az-Zumar 39:3)

4. The man who refuse to make takfir on the Mufti of the taghut 

  • There are many Muslims today who make takfir on the taghut because they dismantle the Shairah and they use their army and police to kill anyone who demand the Shariah
  • These same people who make takfir on the taghut love the Mufti of the taghu
  • According to the teachings of Islam, the Mufti of the taghut is a taghut
  • It is for this reason, ibn Taymiyyah use to make takfir on the Mufti of the taghut
  • hence, he said in his fatawa: 

"A scholar who abandons what he has learnt from Quran and Sunnah and follows a ruler who does not rule in accordance with the teachings of Allah and His Messenger is an apostate and a disbeliever who deserves punishment in this world and in the hereafter "  Fatawa Ibn Taymiyyah, Volume 35/373 

  • The one who refuses to make takfir on the Mufti of the taghut is a kaafir
  • because he falls into the catagory of the Aathir

5. The one who refuses to make takfir on Muslims who refuse to reject taghut 

  • There are some people in the Middle East, Europe and America who are called the Madkhalis
  • they are trying to change Islam in order to cement the thrones of the apostate leaders
  • They even spy on Muslims and have them incarcerated by the 1000’s in Middle East, Africa, Europe, and America
  • The Madkhalis refuse to reject the taghut and they are cementing the thrones of the taghut for a miserable price
  • Their ulama are also scholars for dollars
  • They preach in their Masajid that to dismantle the Shariah of Allah is a minor kufr and not a major kufr
  • All the leaders who dismantle the Shariah are believers 
  • And any group who try to topple them in order to establish the Sharia, are Khawarij
  • They hate jihad and the mujahideen
  • They spy on the mujahideen and have them incarcerated
  • They claim that their shaikh, Salih al Fowzan, gave them a fatwa to spy on all Muslims who believe in jihad
  • because they are khawaraj and they deserve to be in prisons all over the world
  • It is incumbent on all Muslims to make takfir on the Madkhalis because they refuse to reject the taghut
  • and we can’t be Muslims until we reject the taghut

  • When I was living in the UK, I made takfir on the Madkhalis
  • because of them cementing the thrones of the apostate leaders with their erroneous interpretation of Islam
  • and because the Madkhalis refuse to reject the taghut
  • Abu Qatada believes that a Muslim who refuse to reject the taghut 
  • and cements the thrones of the apostate leaders, is still a Muslim
  • because he is jahil
  • He came to debate me on this issue and lost the debate
  • because we can’t be Muslims until we reject the taghut
  • If Abu Qatada doesn’t repent from this ideology, it means he is an Aathir
  • and this would make this a kaafir like Aamin Zawahiri
  • Aamin Zawahiri is a kaafir because if he thinks the Rafida are still Muslims

6. The one who refuses to make takfir on the army and the police of the taghut 

  • A police is a law enforcement officer’; therefore, the only law that a Muslim is allowed to enforce is the law of Allah which is Shariah
  • If you are enforcing the law of the taghut, you become a kaafir
  • because it means that you govern by other than what Allah has revealed
  • Allah has made takfir on those who govern by the law of the taghut; hence, Allah said:

And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed - then it is those who are the disbelievers. (Al-Ma'idah 5:44) [Sahih International]

  • In Kentucky, USA Kim Davis refuse to give a marriage license to a gay couple and was arrested by the police and sent to jail by the judge 
  • this is clear evidence that it is haram for you to be a police officer enforcing the law of the taghut

Clerk in Kentucky Chooses Jail Over Deal on Same-Sex Marriage: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/04/us/kim-davis-same-sex-marriage.html?_r=0 

  • Car insurance is haram because it is state extortion
  • The state is extorting money from the motorist
  • Yet in darul harb, the police arrest people who drive without insurance
  • this is clear evidence that it is haram for Muslims to enforce the law of the taghut
  • Allah had made takfir on the army of the taghut in the following Ayah

Those who believe, fight in the Cause of Allah, and those who disbelieve, fight in the cause of Taghut (Satan, etc.). So fight you against the friends of Shaitan (Satan); Ever feeble indeed is the plot of Shaitan (Satan). (An-Nisa 4:76) 

  • Allah grouped the Pharaoh, his advisor and his army in the same category in the following Ayah

Verily! Fir'aun (Pharaoh), Haman and their soldiers were sinners. (Al-Qasas 28:8) 

7. The one who claims the Muslim Democrat is not a kaafir 

  • Democracy is the greatest shirk because the politicians sit in parliament and legislate for the people
  • and Allah is the only legislator
  • The politicians become the law-givers and Allah said

And He makes none to share in His Decision and His Rule." (Al-Kahf 18:26)

  • Democracy is a religion and a Muslim is not allowed to believe in any other religion except al Islam
  • therefore, all the so-called Muslims who believe in democracy are kuffar outside the fold of Islam
  • in the 1970’s many so-called Muslims in countries like
    Afghanistan, Kazakstan, Uzbekistan, Albania, Yugoslavia, Azerbaijan died believing in communism
  • Hence, they died as kuffar because they did not reject the taghut
  • In our era millions of Muslims in India, Pakistan, B
    angladesh
    , Algeria, Nigeria, Malaysia have died believing in democracy
  • These so-called Muslims have died as kuffar because democracy is the greatest shirk
  • the one who refuse to make takfir on a democrat is an Aathir
  • and an Aathir is a kaafir

8. The one who claims to spy for the kuffar against the mujahideen doesn’t make you become a kaafir

  • There are people who go to the battlefield and use their smart phone to tweet the GPS locations of the mujahideen
  • so that the crusaders will know where to bomb
  • There is ijma among the scholars that such people who spy for the kuffar are apostates from Islam
  • This is because Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab said the eighth nullifier is to help the kuffar against the Muslims

- مظاهرة المشركين ومعاونتهم 
EIGHTH NULLIFIER: helping polytheists against Muslims. The evidence on that is the saying of Allah, the Exalted: And if any amongst you takes them (as Auliyâ’), then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allâh guides not those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong doers. (Al Maida 5:51) MUHAMMAD IBN ABDUL WAHHAB


9. The one who claims the man who insults Muhammad (saw) is not a kaafir 

  • This was the plight of Albani 
  • He believed the one who insults Muhammad [saw] isn’t a kaafir
  • Albani was an Aathir and a kaafir based upon the fatwa of the classical scholars below

Al-Imam Ishaq Ibn Rahawayh said: (All Muslims are in consensus that whoever curses Allah or curses His Messenger, or rejects something from what Allah revealed, or killed a prophet, that he is a kafir; and even if he accept what was revealed by Allah. And Al-Khattabi said, "I don't know of anyone who disagrees with the obligation of his killing." And Muhammad Ibn Sahnun said that the scholars are in consensus that the one who curses the Messenger is a Kafir; and whoever doubts his Kufr is a Kafir.) Taken from (Kitab al-Sarim al-Maslul 'ala satim al-Rasul, by Ibn Taymiyya)

10. The tenth Aathir is the man who refuses to make takfir on the taghut who dislodged the Shariah 

This is the plight of the Saudi Salafis [Madkhalis]
  • They believe that all the apostate leaders who dismantle the Shariah and govern the people with their evil and corrupted desires, are still Muslims because to dismantle the Shariah is a minor kufr
  • This creed of the Madkhalis means they have become Aathir and zindeeqs because they went against the ijma of the Ummah
  • We shall provide the Ummah with a mountain of evidence to prove that the man who dislodges the Shariah is a kaafir and this is the ijma of the Muslims

Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) said: “And it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a Shariah other than the Shariah of Muhammad (SAW), he is a Kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran) and reject some of it.” Majmua al-Fataawa (28/524)

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (d. 728H):  “Whenever a person makes halal what is haraam by consensus or makes haraam what is halal by consensus or replaces the Sharee’ah that is agreed upon by consensus, then he is a Kaffir by the agreement of the scholars of Fiqh.” – “Al-Fataawa”, Vol. 3/267
Ibn Katheer (rh) said: “Thus, it has become in his sons a followed law to which they have been giving precedence over ruling by the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (SAW). Whoever does this is a Kaafir who must be fought until he returns to the rule of Allah and His Messenger. So no one other than He should rule neither minorly or majorly." Tafseer Ibn Katheer (3/131)

While 'Allama al-Shinqiti-May Allah be merciful with him-has said: To commit shirk with Allah in judging is of the same meaning as to commit shirk in His worship, there is no difference between the two in any manner. There is no difference in any sense between he who follows a system (nizam) other than Allah's system or law other than Allah's law (sharia) and he who worships an idol or prostrates to a false god. They are the same and both are polytheists (associating others) with Allah. Adwa' al-Bayan, (7/162)

Shaikh 'Abdul-'Azeez Ibn 'Abdullah Ibn Baaz said: "There is no Eeman for the one who believes the laws of the people and their opinions are superior to the Hukm of Allah and His Messenger or that they are equal to it or that they resemble it or who leaves it or replaces it with fabricated laws and institutions invented by people, even if he believes that the laws of Allah are more encompassing and more just." Wujoob Tah'keem Shari'ah Allah' (pg. 16-17)


Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen said: "The first type is when the Hukm of Allah is removed and replaced with another Taghuutee Hukm, so that the Hukm of the Shari'ah is eliminated between the people and he puts in its place another Hukm from the fabrication of the humans and they remove the laws of the Shari'ah concerning the Mu'amalah (i. e. the general actions between people) and they put in its place fabricated laws and this, without doubt, is Istib'daal (i. e. replacement) of the Shari'ah of Allah subhaanahuu wa-ta'ala, with other than it. And this is Kufr which removes one from the Milla because this person put himself at the level of the Creator because he shara'a (legislated) for the slaves of Allah that which Allah ta'ala did not give permission for and that is Shirk in His, ta'ala's saying: "Or have they partners with Allâh (false gods), who have instituted for them a religion, which Allâh has not allowed?"
