In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger It is Allah’s blessing that He chose Islam for us as our religion, made us among the best Nation ever to be sent to mankind, ordered us to adhere to this religion and be firm on it and warned us against abandoning it. Allah Says” And whosoever of you turns back from this religion and dies as a disbeliever, then his deeds will be lost in this life and in the Hereafter, and they will be dwellers of the fire. They will abide therein forever(2:217) Many Muslims, due to lack of knowledge, do or say things that can take them out of the fold of Islam. All Muslims should be aware of these dangers. Following are The nullifiers of faith (nawaqid al-iman)

-Anyone who does not believe in any one of the seven beliefs

1) Believing in one Allah without any partners with Him.

2) Believing in all Prophets from Adam(AS) to Mohammad(peace be upon them all) including that Mohammad(PBUH) is the final Messenger.

3) Believing in all the books sent by Allah(Torah, Injeel, Qur’an)

4)Believing on the day of Judgment 5) Believing in the unseen(Angles and Jinns)

6) Believing in the next life.

7) Predestination(Qadr)that everything in our lives, good or bad, comes from Allah.

-Mocking and jesting any part of Islam such as growing beard using siwak on teeths, hijab.
-Believing that man-made laws are better than The laws of Allah.
-Believing that the obligatory acts, 5 daily prayers, zakat, fasting and hajj are not necessary. However, if one does not do these acts due to laziness, he/she is still a Muslim and must repent and start performing as soon as possible.-Uttering that he/she is not a Muslim, even as a joke.
-Embracing un-Islamic ideologies such as communism, socialism, nationalism.
-Associating partners with Allah in Lordship.
– Associating partners with Allah in worship.
– Associating partners with Allah in His Divine Names & Attributes.
– Objecting to, looking down to or denial, rejection or making a mockery of the rules of Shari`ah.

Consequently, his or her marriage contract becomes annulled, and therefore, his wife or her husband becomes no longer lawful for him or for her after his or her apostasy. If he or she dies in disbelief, all his or her deeds will be in vain. Moreover, his or her repentance will not be accepted once death has approached him or her . There is no inheritance between such a person and his Muslim family and relatives. The Prayer of the one who has nullified his faith is also invalid for the same reasons. However, these aforementioned rules and consequences of nullifying the faith do not apply until the textual proofs have been made clear to the apostate, he has been asked to repent, the misconceptions which have driven him to nullify his faith have been removed, it has been checked that the conditions are applicable and there is absolutely nothing to prevent this specific person from being declared a disbeliever.

The factors preventing a specific Muslim from being declared a disbeliever are many. Among them is ignorance, FALLING under compulsion, holding improper interpretation, error, and lack of intent. Furthermore, establishing proof against him is quite relative. The basic rule in terms of establishing the proof is that this should be done by someone in authority, such as a scholar qualified to make ijtihad, or a Muslim ruler, such as a Shari`ah judge in Islamic societies, and the like. It is necessary to be highly careful in this respect, for it is less serious for a Muslim to err in judging an apostate to be a Muslim than to err in expelling a Muslim from the fold of Islam.

{Say unto them, Muhammad: Are those who know equal to those who do not know? But only men of
understanding will pay heed,} (39: 9)
Allah Almighty knows best
