Wahhabism Contends Muslims are Kafirun
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
The Wahhabi scholar, Abu al-Fadhl Naswir ad-Din an-Nu’aymi wrote a book about their ‘aqidah, Hadzihi Aqidatuna, explicitly stating that the Wahhabis believe most of the Muslims are, in fact, mushrikin, polytheists.
Page 16 of their manual, explained major shirk as they believe, and what it entails, such as making the blood and property of the “mushrikin” violable. This explains why Wahhabis are so quick to kill Muslims. They do not view them as Muslims, but consider them polytheists, and apostates.
After the above introductory explanation of major shirk, the Abu al-Fadhl an-Nu’aymi then briefly lists the different forms of major shirk, at the end of which he then wrote the following in page 20 that, “most of those who claim to be Muslims are verily mushrikin.”
The above may be ambiguous as to whether they hold this belief regarding the Muslims of the present era only or does it include the past eras too. This is clarified in later part of this manual on page 38: “Therefore, this belief of theirs is regarding at least the last centuries of Muslims, in that most of them Muslims are in fact kafir aswli to them.” A kafir aswli is someone who is born a kafir. The Wahhabis believe that Muslims who are not of their manhaj are born kafirun, not Muslims.
Aside from issues with their understanding of the Divine Nature which makes the Wahhabis muskrikun themselves, their labelling another Muslim kafir aswli by itself qualifies them for kufr and nifaq. It is recorded in Sunan Abu Dawud that ibn ‘Umar (r.a.) related that the Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “If a Muslim calls another ‘kafir’, then if he is a kafir, let it be so; otherwise, he is himself a kafir.”
It is also recorded in Swahih al-Bukhari that Abu Dzarr (r.a.) reported that the Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “No man accuses another man of being a sinner, or of being a kafir, but it reflects back on him if the other is not as he called him.”
