Guidelines For Applying Takfeer & When Is A Person Excused, Part 3


Ibn ‘Uthaymeen says:

“The basis of a Muslim is apparently that he is trustworthy and that his Islaam remains as does his trustworthiness until this has been removed from him based on Shari’ proof…

The ruling of takfeer (labeling someone a disbeliever) and tasfeeq (labeling someone a sinner) is not our right, rather it is the right of Allaah and His Messenger (saw), it is from the Divine Legislated regulations (ahkaam Ash-Shar’iyyah)…

From the most important conditions are that the person had full knowledge of his opposition (to Islaam) which necessitated him becoming a disbeliever or a faasiq (sinner).”

[Refer to Al-Qawaa’id Al-Muthlaa, Pp. 116-119]
