What is our opinion of Ahmed Raza Khan and his takfir of Deobandi ulema?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
what should our opinion be of ahmed raza khan. he declared the great deobandi ulema as kaafirs. the hadith states to call a muslim a kaafir results the accusser of becomming a murtad so can be apply this ruling to raza khan. also if someone has already called raza khan a kaafir because of his takfir making is he sinful

Bismihi Ta’ala

We are not in a position to issue a verdict of Kufr on any individual unless his Kufr is manifest and openly clear.

After all, we are not going to be questioned regarding Raza Khans religious positions in our grave nor on the day of Judgement.

Discussions such as these should be avoided and we should concentrate on the more important discussions such as, his reasons for identifying Deobandis with Kufr, and counter tackling those aspects as and when needed.

And Allah knows best

Mufti Yaseen Shaikh
