Description from the publisher: Based on an original translation by Dawood Burbank for the Jam’iat Ihyaa’ Minhaaj al-Sunnah, the book presents concise but clear information on the issue of judging .a Muslim to be an unbeliever or the practice of takfeer. It teaches the understanding that should prevail and the great care one must take before rushing to condemn someone to be outside the fold of Islaam.
Many Muslims nowadays and in particular the youth, show unwise haste in pronouncing takfeer. There are a number of obvious inter-related reasons for this. Frustration with open sinfulness of many and the horrors of the Muslims’ political situation are but two of these rationales that ensnare the sincere and enthusiastic people. Add to that the gross prevalence of ignorance, multifaceted confusion, lack of forthcoming sound knowledge from individuals held in esteem, and we have the perfect ingredients for a disastrous state of affairs. Imm.aturity in the Deen, group rivalries, inability to correctly accommodate differences amongst scholars and genuine varied interpretations, shallow cultivation of the qualities of faith and lack of attention to the matters of the heart are some of the main reasons why so many are quick to display bad manners in general and put themselves in the judgement seat and start pronouncing takfeer.
