A Rejoinder on Contextualizing the Hadiths. It is with this premise he argued that the hundred year old fatwa of Imam Ahmad Rida Khan, that was endorsed by the prominent religious authorities of Makkah and Madinah in H against certain Deobandi scholars for their irresponsible blasphemous writings, was lacking legitimacy according to the Islamic criteria of takfir since the Deobandi writers claimed to have had no intention of offending the Noble Prophet Allah give him peace and blessings ….

Apostasy and Takfir 4 8 III. Blasphemy and Islamic Law 22 IV. Fallacies in the Framework 41 V. The Apologist VII. Husam al-Haramayn and Muhannad IX. Obiter Dicta Conclusion 65 92 Appendix A. Some More Exhibits Appendix E. He has given them guidance and inspired them to bear unseen witness to His Glory and Greatness and has opened their hearts for the light of faith to enter; and by His Divine Grace, He has cleansed their hearts from doubt and hesitation, malady and malice towards religion.
Salutations and blessings be upon him, his companions, his family and his pious followers. He has translated other texts and written articles, which can be found along with audio clips of some of his opinions on another website.
We rejected his views, but we did not refute him immediately. It was a restrained reaction. I had composed a rough sketch in the following months and left it there. While his mistakes were apparent, I hoped or wished that he would have another look and retract his article, or at least write a follow-up correcting some glaring errors.
But, that never happened. We follow in the footsteps of illustrious men to defend Sunni scholars, though I am neither worthy nor comparable to a fraction of a thousandth part of those great men who have trodden on this path. Similarities are coincidental14 and I have not consciously copied from these works. I find it necessary to mention this to acknowledge prior efforts, and to avoid any accusation of plagiarism. Shaykh Asrar Rashid and Shaykh Naveed Jameel [both from UK] kindly consented to review the final draft and made valuable suggestions and corrections.
Yet, I am solely responsible for any mistake or error that may have remained unnoticed. The Voice of Truth by Mariam Dastagir. Notes: 1. We are not a sect separate from Ahl as-Sunnah. Even lay people use Sunni and Barelwi interchangeably in the subcontinent.
The twin chapters on apostasy and blasphemy are included for an introduction, and to raise awareness about these issues — it was never intended, nor assumes to be the ultimate resource on the two topics. Some people deliberately mis-spell it as Brelwi, Brelvi or Bralwi.
It is not easy to refute it as a monolithic piece, as insinuations are interweaved with valid statements. Therefore, this requires a two-pronged approach: 1. Certainly, both are related; but an approach that tries to address them together may result in one aspect overwhelming the other, and each diminishing the gravity of the other.
My intention from the beginning has also been to clarify concepts the author ostentatiously set out to explain in the first place. It is necessary therefore, to break down the article in topics and sections to examine each part separately. Major and minor headings marked by the author himself are as follows: Oneself a.
Things That Everyone Knows b. Things Not Everyone Knows c. Things Disagreed Upon by Ulema Others a. The Enormity of Charging a Muslim with Unbelief b. Words That Entail Leaving Islam b. The Fallacy of Hearsay Evidence c.
The Imputed Insult g. The Words of Ashraf Ali Thanwi j. Conclusions k. The Fallacy of Takfir by Association 4 9. For the purpose of our analysis, this article and the topics above can be regrouped according to themes in the subject matter and addressed accordingly.
The article can be broadly decomposed thus: 1. The issue of takfir; principles, practice and advice to Muslims from reckless takfir. Deobandi Apologia: two lengthy paragraphs to justify Deobandi positions, which knowledgeable people from the subcontinent will readily recognise as a rehash of century old Deobandi propaganda. After describing essential concepts in the first two chapters, we will follow the structure of the original article in its analysis.
Some of the aforementioned points are discussed in dedicated chapters and the rest are mentioned somewhere in between. Iman, Kufr, and Takfir IKT starts promisingly and appears to be an attempt to clarify an important issue17 and to advise Muslims to be careful when accusing others of disbelief. This is a praiseworthy objective in itself and is direly needed in our times. In the first part, the author tries to explain the issue of takfir, the dangers of takfir, the grave warnings against unwarranted takfir and so on.
The author discusses a concept or an idea, and when he introduces the protagonists eventually, the reader is prepared for correlating people with ideas or situations, using the information provided in the opening sections of the article or book. This is not entirely wrong; actually, it may be quite necessary in lengthy dissertations.
But, when the idea or concept is explained in the manner of half-truths and insinuations, the reader is sure to arrive at wrong conclusions — or readily agree with the conclusions drawn by the author. In such a situation, this becomes a legerdemain, by which the author tries to appear unbiased and objective, even though he ploughs towards a set agenda. Another key aspect of this article is latent orientalism. It may be incorrect and unfair to term the author as an orientalist, but unfortunately, the tone in which he speaks, reeks of orientalist attitudes: But at the outset one can say that so far as the West was concerned during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, an assumption had been made that the Orient and everything in it was, if not patently inferior to, then in need of corrective study by the West.
Since Keller has described many issues [and citations] before arriving at the principle in question, the impression a reader19 gets, is that Alahazrat was not aware of all those issues. Consequently, an overwhelming number of scholars and common people in the subcontinent [following Alahazrat] make the same mistake, until Keller teaches them basic principles of takfir.
A responsible scholar should describe the perils in blasphemy adequately along with articulating his own position on takfir. Therein, I mentioned a ruling based on what I considered as a stronger proof from texts that I had perused; a ruling, which was influenced by piety and righteousness; and far removed from bigotry and abject hatred. This is said about a hypothetical case, and if such a condition truly exists — as it is only a possibility.
Alas for Keller! That, is not an ordinary mistake.
Shaikh Nuh Keller: takfir and the Subcontinental divide

Many people today read an expression labelled in books of Islamic law as kufr, and when they realize that some Muslim they know or have heard of has an idea like it, they jump to the conclusion that he is a kafir. Charging fellow Muslims with unbelief takfir is an enormity in the eyes of Allah. A careful answer to the question must look at what kufr means, both in respect to oneself and others, before drawing general conclusions on what legally establishes or acquits a person of the charge of unbelief. Oneself Life is a gamble, whose stakes are paradise or hell.
The Road to Daesh – The History of the Takfir and its Interpretations
Francesco Bergoglio Errico. The concept of takfir — declaring a Muslim a disbeliever — is a very modern propaganda weapon of al-Qaeda and Daesh. But its origins are to be found in distant times. Only God has the authority to arbitrate, they held, not human beings. Later on, the slogan came to represent their broad view that all judgements and rulings should be left to God. The consequences could not be more serious. This meant that, according to the Khawarij, the application of jihad was not just limited to ordinary people.
