Is a Person Who Falls Into a Nullifier from the Nullifiers of Islaam Excused Due to Ignorance? by Shaikh Rabee' ibn Haadi al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah)  

Shaikh Rabee' ibn Haadi al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah) said:

quote:
And many from the Imaams of the Salaf, from the most renown and virtuous of them is Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah), who holds the opinion that (the person) is excused due to ignorance even in acts of shirk (polytheism) and kufr (disbelief), if he is in fact ignorant. So if he falls into shirk or he falls into disbelief; however, he is (totally) ignorant that this is shirk or kufr and no knowledge or legislative text has reached him (about these matters) that would clarify to him that this is shirk or kufr then this individual is excused.

For example he abandons the prayer.

This person (i.e. who abandons the prayer), with the majority of the Sahaabah (Companions) and People of Hadeeth, is a kaafir (disbeliever) and this (act) is a nullifier from the nullifiers of Islaam. However, the information about the obligation of the prayer or obligation of fasting or other than them hasn't come to him. He accepted Islaam, but no one informed him about anything. He loved the religion of Islaam and as a result accepted it; however, no one informed him that this (prayer) is a pillar from the pillars of Islaam and that it is from the mandatory affairs (that must be carried out), then he is excused and the truth must be clarified to him (at this time), may Allah bless you.

Now if he persists upon rejecting the prayer and saying that it is not from Islaam (and so on), then he is a renegade disbeliever.




Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk  

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.

this is a very important point that clarifies the nature of the type of
ignorance that would excuse a person from nullifying his/her islam

i have to say, with great sadness, that there are individuals who, even if
texts or books or other forms of adilla reach them, they turn away and do not
have an interest in learning what the haqq. so then, they end up committing
acts of shirk, like prostrating to the dead for instance, out of ignorance -
yet this ignorance is not the excusable ignorance, as the haqq has reached
them, but they choose to turn away from it and choose to remain ignorant

and Allaah knows best,
