Hanafi Fiqh

Quoting statements of disbelief

Is it permissible to quote a statement of kufr, without explicitly saying “he said, they said” or the like before the statement. For example one intends on quoting a statement but doesn’t provide a quoting statement, would this individual blaspheme.

Would one have to say ‘so called’, before for example saying “Saint Thomas Aquinas”, since we know he is a kafir and a kafir can’t be a saint. Or is it understood through our beliefs and just recommended not to call him a saint?

Hanafi Fiqh

Muslim and non-Muslim relationship

Assalamualaikum

Are muslims and non muslims allowed to be friends?
There are a few verses where Allah has commanded muslims not befriend jews, Christians and idolaters. However I have heard many scholars say that it is ok to be friends with non-muslims even atheists, and these verses only addressed specific situations that were meant to warn early muslims that jews and idolaters of their time cannot be trusted since they were at war with them.

Reciting the Quran with musical melodies

What is the authenticity of this Hadith? اقرءوا القرآن بلحون العرب وأصواتها، وإياكم ولحون أهل الكتابين، وأهل الفسق، فإنه سيجيء بعدي قوم يرجّعون بالقرآن ترجيع الغناء والرهبانية والنوح، لا يجاوز حناجرهم، مفتونة قلوبهم، وقلوب من يعجبهم شأنهم
