There are many similar examples of unintended offense in the sunna. Charging fellow Muslims with unbelief takfir is an enormity in the eyes of Allah. Moreover, such a judgement may either apply to a particular person— which requires further that he confess it and how unlikely that is ; for any other proof of it would be difficult to accept, since evaluating it would require the above- mentioned conditions, though if kuffr were given or a confession made, its legal consequences would be entailed— or such a judgement may apply to a sect.
On rigorous analysis of the book, it comes to light — as has been shown by many Ulamah in many of their books all generally in Urdu — that the statement that Molvi Ahmed Raza Khan quoted had been concocted from three different passages from three different pages of Tahdhi Al-Naas.
Hadhrat Saharanpuri further mentions that similar proofs cannot be realized in relation to the Holy Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. As for some men of us whose teeth are new [the young], they have said: I prefer from these sayings that it refers to the one who says it to someone from whom nothing is known except Islam and there is no justification or reason for him to claim that he is a kafir.

We consider it a very serious matter to declare someone [outwardly a Muslim] to be a kuf, because it requires two things seldom found: Your name or email address: Allah has explained to us that whoever dies in a state of unbelief without excuse shall be punished in hell forever, just as whoever avoids unbelief shall attain to felicity, even if he should be punished first. Zaid is a Sunni [Barelvi] of sound beliefs. Last edited by a moderator: This last, admittedly jealous, remark was a reproach against her husband, the Messenger of Allah Allah bless amd and give him peacebut here too, because it was a mere emotional protest that lacked the explicit intention to demean or offend him, it entailed no legal consequences.
