Quote from: Question
BISMILLAH,
I read your article regarding the Hukm of the one who does not declare Takfir upon a Kafir, within my strength. To begin with you brought Dalil from Abu Hanifa and other scholars. With the statement of Abu Hanifa: The one, who does not declare Takfir upon a Kafir, becomes Kafir himself. I understand that he is speaking about two persons only meaning
1- The person who worships the idols
2- The Hukm of the second person who does not declare Takfir upon him, he is Kafir himself.
Declaring Takfir upon the Mushrikin and the Kuffar is something that is necessary for having Tawhid. For this ruling to me- there is no need to quote from Abu Hanifa. The question is:
Is there any Dalil or application of the scholars for the third person who says the second person is Kafir or not Kafir? I mean as the fourth person, how and with which Dalil can we determine the Hukm of the third person?
p.s., I am asking because, they confused us in this matter.

Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah (Rahimahullh) stated,

والعالم يعرف الجاهل؛ لأنه كان جاهلا، والجاهل لا يعرف العالم لأنه لم يكن عالما

"The lim (scholar) recognizes the Jhil (ignorant) since he was once a Jhil. The Jhil does not recognize the lim since he has never been an lim." (Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majm'ul Fatw, 13/235)
