Quote from: Question Date September 14th Fri 13:41
My question is, if you know quotes of the scholars about the issue of sitting silently with kuffar, whilst they mock the religion or do other kinds of disbelief. I know, this  is obliously kufr, but my question is moreover, if the scholars said something with regard to wether this judgement was labeled to be tawfeeqi or wether they counted it to the Asl, so that this ruling* needs to be known even by someone who has no access to the hujjah ?


*the ruling of it being kufr to sit silently with those, who commit shirk/kufr

I meant tawqeefi, not tawfeeqi

Bismillâh,

First of all, if you are to search for a statement regarding whether an action of Kufr is from Asl’ud Dîn you will not be able to find it. Besides, there is no need for such. For you to comprehend this you need to know what Imân and Kufr is and the difference between them, meaning you actually have to be Muslim to understand, because the one who does not know the Kufr s/he needs to reject, can not be Muslim. However, I will still try to summarize the matter for you.

Kufr is the opposite of Imân. Thus, any action contradicting Imân, which can not be imagined to be performed by a Muslim is Kufr. Since consent to Kufr is Kufr this means it is an action that will not be performed by a Muslim. Namely, an individual who has Imân can not sit in a gathering the Dîn is being mocked and ridiculed, his/her Imân and love of Allah will prevent this. If this individual continues to sit in such gathering this means s/he has neither Imân, nor the love of Dîn, also s/he does not have Bugdh (hatred) against Kufr.

If you pay attention all of these are related with the actions of the heart, there isn’t anything regarding neither Ilm nor Hujjah here, there is nothing to necessitate them either, they are all matters related to the Fitrah (nature).

In reality regardless of how many types of Kufr crosses your mind, for example taking the Kuffar as Wali, they are all like this. If you want to comprehend this, you must investigate an verify the views of the Ahl’us Sunnah regarding Imân. According to the Ahl’us Sunnah the unison between the Dhâhir and the Bâtin is principle, meaning if an individual shows Kufr in his Dhâhir this means Kufr exists in his Bâtin also.

An individual that understands this will not presume possibility that one could remain Mumin due to ignorance while quietly sitting and listening to the Dîn being mocked and ridiculed. The necessary relation between the Dhâhir and the Bâtin have been described in great detail by Ibnu Taymiyyah in his “Fatâwâ V7” and “as-Sârim’ul Maslűl”, these are matters of great importance. However, they are matters most people of today are unwary.

In short neither consent to Kufr nor any other type of Kufr similar to this can not be Tawqîfî in the sense of being known only by Hujjah. Imân and Kufr are not variable; they are the same/unchanged in all Shari’ah of every Rasűl. It is in opposition to the Aql (intellect) and Naql (narrative) to think Nash (abrogation) could occur in them. Wallâhu Â’lam.
Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said:

إِنَّ النَّاسَ دَخَلُوا فِي دِينِ اللهِ أَفْوَاجًا، وَسَيَخْرُجُونَ مِنْهُ أَفْوَاجًا

"Verily, the people have entered into the religion of Allah in crowds and they will also leave it in crowds." (Ahmad, Musnad)
