Quote from: Question
Attention to those who declare general Takfir according to Daar! Ibnu Qudamah (rahimahullah) stated that this ruling can not be applied in an abode which Muslims live in. READ! (Note: Do not forget these rulings were given only regarding goods that are found and funerals. Meaning; there is no need to pass ruling concerning the alive whether negative or positive!)

As for the second type of Daar, they are just like lands of Shaam which the Muslims conquered. Even if there is only one Muslim in these lands, then what is found (goods, child, or dead body) will be given the Hukm of Muslim. Since Islam is triumphant, the Hukm of Muslim is to be given. If there is no Muslim in these lands, however, the people of such lands are entirely from the Ahludh Dhimmah then, the Hukm of Kufr is to be given. This is because the ruling of Islam being triumphant is given according to the possibility even if it is very little. (Whereas, in these lands there are no Muslim to cause the ruling to be based upon the possibilities).

Explanation: If rulings that are given according to Daar through Tabiyyah was due to the Daar itself, then the ruling for the lands that were conquered by the Muslims which are considered as Daarul Islam should be Islam even if there is no Muslim residing in it. This shows that what affects the ruling that is given according to the Daar is not the Daar itself but its people.

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)
