The Khawarij Terrorists not judging with what Allaah has revealed No.5
Shaykh ul Islaam Ibn Taymeeyah said about:
وَمَنْ لَمْ يَحْكُمْ بِمَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ
And whosoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed, such are the Kafirun (i.e. disbelievers – of a lesser degree as they do not act on Allah’s Laws).》Maidah:44
أن الإمام أحمد –رحمه الله- سئل عن الكفر المذكور في آية الحكم؛ فقال: “كفر لا ينقل عن الملة؛ ؛ مثل الإيمان بعضه دون بعض، فكذلك الكفر، حتى يجيء من ذلك أمر لا يختلف فيه”.
Imam Ahmad – rahimullaah – was asked about the type of Kufr mentioned in the Ayaah of judging and he said: ‘this is the Kufr which does not take a person out of the Ummah; just as some parts of Eemaan are lesser and the same is for Kufr, until there appears a matter of which there is no difference of opinion in.’ [Majmoo al-Fatawa 7/254]
