(Fatwa: 86/84=L/1429)


If a person prefers Hadhrat Ali (رضی اللہ عنہ) on other sahabah and he does not believe in other beliefs of Shias, then this particular person is not kafir. But, a Shia is kafir who believes that Hadhrat Jibreel did mistake in conveying revelation to the right person or Hadhrat Ali is god, or one who accuses Hadhrat Ayishah of adultery or professes that the Quran is corrupted or denies Hadhrat Abu Bakr being a sahabi:

وبھذا ظھر أن الرافضي إن کان ممن یعتقد الألوھیۃ في علي أو أن جبریل غلط في الوحي أو کان ینکر صحبۃ الصدیق أو یقذف السیدۃ الصدیقۃ فھو کافر لمخالفتہ القواطع المعلومۃ من الدین بالضرورۃ (الشامي 4:135)

Allah knows Best!
