View Full Version : ANSWERED: Calling the haram as halal, apostates?
12-09-2004, 11:36 PM
If someone says that for something in which there is absolutely no difference of opinion (such as the hijab) that it is "not fard" (not like Salaah or Zakat, but something like hijab in specific), do they commit apostacy? I don't think so, but I read somewhere that they become kaffirs. I thought at least they'd be called Ahlul Bid'ah before Kaffir. Anyways, which way is it? Or are they just sinners? Jazakallah wa Khayrun

if there is absoloutely no difference, thren they commit kufr. In regards to hijab, this was also the case traditionally - however, the scholars today refrain from declaring kufr on those who deny the fardh naturew of hijab due to the confusing times we live in.

According to my former Tirmidhi and Sharah Ma`aniul Athaar teacher (a Mufti, Deoband grad), if a person refuses to believe something to be Halal, Haram, or Fardh and it is proven by Quran or mutawatir Hadith, or it is proven to the extent that everyone agrees to it, he will become a kafir if he refuses to believe in it without offering any evidence.
However, if he offers any sort of explanation based on some sort of daleel (even if it's a weak one) for any of the above, thus creating even a minimal amount of doubt, he cannot be termed as being kafir because of it.
Allah knows best.
