Imam al-Ghazali (r.a.) on Guarding against Imputing Takfīr

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam al-Ghazali (r.a.) said, “One ought to guard against imputing takfīr as much as one can.  For to render lawful the lives and property of those who pray towards the qiblah and clearly state that there is no deity worthy of worship but Allah and Muhammad is Allah’s Messenger is a serious matter.  To err in leaving a thousand unbelievers alive is preferable than to err in shedding a drop of Muslim blood.”
