A takfiri (Arabic: تكفيري‎ takfīriyy) is a Muslim who accuses another Muslim (or an adherent of another Abrahamic faith) of apostasy. The accusation itself is called takfir, derived from the word kafir (unbeliever), and is described as when "one who is a Muslim is declared impure."

Property Value
dbo:abstract
  • A takfiri (Arabic: تكفيري‎ takfīriyy) is a Muslim who accuses another Muslim (or an adherent of another Abrahamic faith) of apostasy. The accusation itself is called takfir, derived from the word kafir (unbeliever), and is described as when "one who is a Muslim is declared impure." If a person (or a group) claims to be Muslim but deny any of the basic tenets of Islam, then the one who declares them kafir, is not counted as takfiri. This is used for groups like the Ahmadiyya, who are considered kafir by many Muslims because they deny the basic tenet, The Finality of Prophethood. Accusing other Muslims of being takfiris has become a sectarian slur (used most often by Shia Muslims against Salafis, Wahhabis, Sunni terrorists and any general Sunnis who claim that Shia are kuffar, making killing them allowed by Islamic doctrine), particularly since the outbreak of the Syrian Civil War in 2011. In principle, the only group authorised to declare a member of an Abrahamic religion a kafir (unbeliever) is the ulema, and this is only done once all the prescribed legal precautions have been taken. However, a growing number of splinter Wahhabist/Salafist groups, classified by some scholars as Salafi-Takfiris, have split from the orthodox method of establishing takfir through the processes of the Sharia. They have reserved to themselves the right to declare any Muslim an apostate, as well as any non-Muslim. (en)
