Those who rule with other than Allah’s Law are disbelievers

At-Tawheed means worship Allah [سبحانه وتعالى] exclusively. So the one who believes in Allah,  shows Bara’a [enmity/hate/distance] towards the Shirk [polytheism] and it’s people. And the one who doesn’t show Bara’a towards Shirk and Mushrikeen, he can not be a Muslim.

In the 10 Nullifiers of Islam, Sheikh ul-Islam Muhammad ibnu Abdul-Wahab (ra) mentioned as one of the Nullifiers; the one who doesn’t declare the [true] Kufar and Mushrikeen to be Kufar, or the one who doubts about their Kufr [disbelief].

So we believe in the Kufr of the Jews, Christians and Mushrikeen, and we show enmity towards them. Because Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) says:

{“So when he had left them.”} [19:49]

{“And when you have withdrawn from them.”} [18:16]

{“And I will leave you and those you invoke other than Allah.”} [19:48]

{“There is a good example for you in Ibrahim and those with him, when they told their people: ‘Surely we disassociate ourselves from you and all that you worship beside Allah.”} [60:4]

And Allah the Almighty says: {“..and He shares not His legislation with anyone.”} [18:26]

So it is a Duty upon us to distance ourselves from Shirk and it’s people. And do not be mistaken to think that you can only fall in Shirk by worshipping graves, or to ask/call someone other than Allah, or to ask people in order to obtain their mercy, excuse, and healing. That is Shirk which there is no doubt about it.

But there are other types of Shirk, like Shirk al-Mahabba [Loving other than Allah], Shirk at-Taa’a [Following/Obeying other than Allah] and the Shirk of not Judging by what Allah revealed, because Allah says: {“..and He shares not His legislation with anyone.”} [18:26]

So the one who judges by the accursed man made laws is a Mushrik Bi Allah and a Kafir. Allah the Almighty says: {“Legislation is not but for Allah.”} [12:40] That means that nobody has the right to Legislate besides Allah the Almighty, Also Allah says: {“And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the disbelievers.”} [5:44]

So it’s a duty to disbelief in those Mushar’een [Legislators]. Sheikh ul-Islam ibn Taymiyyah (ra) stated:

قال شيخ الإسلام ابن تيمية رحمه الله تعالى: ‘والإنسان متى حلّل الحرام المجمع عليه أو حرّم الحلال المجمع عليه أو بدّل الشرع المجمع عليه؛ كان كافراً باتّفاق الفقهاء

“Whenever a person makes Halaal what is Haraam by consensus or makes Haraam what is Halaal by consensus or replaces the Shari’ah that is agreed upon by consensus, then he is a Kafir by the agreement of the scholars of Fiqh.” [Majmu al-Fatawa, 3/267]

And al-Imam ibn Hazam (ra) stated:

قال ابن حزم رحمه الله تعالى: ‘من حكم بحكم الإنجيل ممّا لم يأت بالنص عليه وحيٌ في شريعة الإسلام؛ فإنّه كافر مشرك خارج عن الإسلام

“Whoever rules by torah and injil in issues where there is no text from revelation in the Shari’ah of Islam; then he is a Kafir Mushrik outside of Islam. With the consensus of the Fuqaha [scholars of Fiqh].” [Ihkaam al-Ahkaam fi Usuol Al-Ahkaam, 5/153]

Subhana’Allah! al-Imam ibn Hazam (ra) states a consensus of the Fuqaha regarding the kufr of those who rule with [the true] Torah and Gospel [because those were only for the children of Israel]. So what about those today, who rule with the Laws of the Jews and Christians, and the accursed among the people [Atheists, democrats, secularists]?

And what is the ruling regarding those who rule with Christians policies, the Laws of the UN, or the laws of the UN Security Council [the Sheikh calls it's UN KUFR Council]. What is the ruling regarding this people?

“Those are more Kafir than Iblis [satan], and more pernicious.”

Ibn Hazam says that the one who rules with the TRUE Gospel and Torah, and leaves the Quran is a Kafir with the consensus of the Fuqaha. And those who rule with the policies of Bush and the policies of the accursed among people [Nato, UN] they don’t become Kafir??

Subhana’Allah: {“What is [the matter] with you? How do you judge?”} [68:36]

This misguidance has a strong presence in our time. Those [self proclaimed] Salaf of today have Irjaa [delay], they are the Salaf of Irjaa. There are people who have a great urge in delaying matters, and they say: “It’s Kufr duna Kufr.”


This is called KUFR AKBAR! If a person removes parts of the Shari’ah, or doesn’t implement it at all, this is called Kufr Akbar [disbelief which takes you out of the fold of islam].

And that’s why al-Hafith ibn Kathir (ra) says in Al-Bidayyah wa’l Nihayyah Book 13, about Genkis Khan, when he speaks about those who ruled with Al-Yaasiq [the laws of the Tartars]:

قال الحافظ ابن كثير رحمه الله: ‘فمن ترك الشرع المحكم، المنزل على محمد بن عبد الله خاتم الأنبياء وتحاكم إلى غيره من الشرائع المنسوخة كفر فكيف بمن تحاكم إلى الياسق وقدمها عليه؟ من فعل ذلك كفر بإجماع المسلمين

“Whoever does that, he has disbelieved by the Ijmaa of the Muslims.” [al-Bidayyah Wa’l Nihayyah, 13/118-119]

We have the consensus of the scholars. So we have Ibn Hazam (ra) who stated with consensus, the same for Sheikh ul-Islam ibn Taymiyyah (ra) and al-Hafith ibn Kathir (ra). So what remains, is misguidance, deviation, irjaa and playing with the Book of Allah (سبحانه وتعالى) and the Sunna of His Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم).
