Calling things by it’s right name

So if we listen to various educated Muslim scholars we learn that it’s strictly forbidden for anyone to do “takfir”. What does it mean? You can not judge someone as not being a Muslim. (Equivalent to the christian church’s “excommunication“.) To exclude someone. In Islam the word for a Muslim who abandon faith is “Kufar”. A word terrorists uses to justify widespread killing over the world. Yes, children, Christians, Yezidis and most of all – Muslims.

To call someone “kufar” is to do “takfir”. And to do takfir is not okay. As condemning and killing people never can be okay no matter what.

Wise people calls it “Takfirism”. And it’s genius. The word Islam has nothing to do with what is going on in terms of terror. Islam can not explain it. Not prevent it and not stop it. But we can all work together for a beautiful world.

Not even the American president can tell the difference between Islamism and Islamic. And that’s the guy who “knew more than any general” about terrorism. Why not make things easier for the ones that like to talk but not learn?

One thought on “Calling things by it’s right name

  1. Takfiring is a blurred vision at best. At what point or stance does a Muslim stop becoming a Muslim?

    Some Muslims think a Muslim who eats pork and/or drinks alcohol is out of Islam.
    Some Muslims think a Muslim who doesn’t pray is an infidel.
    Some Muslims think a Muslim who supports suicide bombings is an infidel.

    It leads to questions such as:

    Who’s Muslim, the one who believes in Allah but drinks and doesn’t pray or the one who supports suicide bombings & eats halal?
