(Fatwa: 108/L=108/L)

All the Shias are not kafir. Only the Shias are kafir who believe in the following:

that Hazrat Gebriel (the angle) mistakenly put revelation to Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) instead of Hazrat Ali.
who believe that Hazrat Ali (Razi Allahu anhu) was a god
who blame on Hazrat Ayshah (Razi Allahu anha) of adultery
who believe corruption in the Holy Quran
and who deny the companionship (Suhbat) of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Razi Allahu anhu) (Fatawa Shami, 4/135)

But the Shias who believe only that Hazrat Ali was better (Afzal) than other companions and do not have other Shiite beliefs then they will not be considered as kafir.
