The issue really boils down to the fact that many believe that if you call someone a kafir then it's as if you're saying "the WILL go to hell" which isn't the case because that's in Allah's hands and he decides who goes to hell or heaven. And yes, there are only two groups according to Allah, but it doesn't mean that someone who's a kafir will go to hell...we really don't know nor do we have control over it, we just know that they're on the wrong path!

No one was saying that anyone is going to heaven or hell, but yeah, you’re right

Salam alaykum and thanks for always saying it how it is. Your thoughts and answers always challenge me and my understanding of certain issues. Jazak Allah khair

Wa alaikum salam, No problem :)

I don’t get why people have to over complicate the deen, people should study al walaa wal baraa because its an essential part of this deen. I suggest you all listen to this lesson by Shaykh Ahmed Musa Jibril, and the next two lessons after that where he discusses the concept. It will teach you how you can apply ayahs like this in your life

"There has already been for you an excellent example in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people, “Indeed, we are disassociated from you and from whatever you worship other than Allah . We have denied you, and there has appeared between us and you animosity and hatred forever until you believe in Allah alone” except for the saying of Abraham to his father, “I will surely ask forgiveness for you, but I have not [power to do] for you anything against Allah . Our Lord, upon You we have relied, and to You we have returned, and to You is the destination.” (60:4)

How should you hate the kuffar and have animosity towards them? How do you dissociate from them? What about hadith and ayahs which tell us to treat people (in general) well? (because that does seem kinda contradictory at face value) 

All of these questions and more are explained in these lessons, so I really do suggest you watch them so that you can understand the Qur’an and and practice this deen better

zainablessa replied to your photo “thefajrun its not about condemning anyone to hell, if someones a kafir…”

kafir in Arabic means not believing in something mainly religion related maters. A nonbeliever whether it’s God, religion, religious law..atc!

but you can’t just take the linguistic definition and say that this is the automatic islamic definition and make rulings based on that. I’ll give you an example, Salah in arabic use to mean dua, but islam came and changed the meaning to what we know to be salah today, If someone came and said we don’t have to pray, we just need to make dua because thats what the word means, would we follow them? no. 

Islam changed the meaning of many words, so they have a linguistic definition and an islamic one

How do I fight was was? When I pray I get horrible thoughts about god and suggestions saying to do shirk.

Uthman b. Abu al-‘As reported that he came to Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) and said:

Allah’s Messenger, the Satan intervenes between me and my prayer and my reciting of the Qur’an and he confounds me. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said:, That is (the doing of a) Satan (devil) who is known as Khinzab, and when you perceive its effect, seek refuge with Allah from it and spit three times to your left. I did that and Allah dispelled that from me.
-Sahih Muslim 2203
thefajrun its not about condemning anyone to hell, if someones a kafir they’re a kafir, Allah called them this not me, its not saying they will die upon their kufr and its not about investing how much the message was delivered to them either.
 Our deen isn’t just based off of some guys opinion, its based on evidence so you’d need to bring proof of the prophet (saw) going “they’re not a muslim but they’re not a kafir either” or something along those lines which im pretty sure doesn’t exist because the Quran is clear, there are muslims and then there are kafirs. Idk why people over complicate the issue

claviclesandanaarr I can’t remember exactly because it was ages ago but it was something about ahlul kitab not being kafirs but Allah says he created some of us as Muslims and other as kafirs (second ayah of surah taghabun I think) so you’re one or the other

nusayybah it depends on the aqeeda issue, like if someone says Allah is three then they are a kafir, theres no two ways about it. Allah did takfir on everyone who says that and who say that isa (as) is Allah, so basically in surah maidah Allah did takfir of almost all christians, so why do muslims find it hard to do the same lol

I don’t get why loads of people want to create some new third category, you are either a muslim or a kafir, just as Allah said, you can’t just come and make a new third group and be like “but they didn’t reject the deen yet”

Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said,”When is the help of Allah?” Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near.
