99 POINTS OF KUFR AND ONE POINT OF IMAAN

The Fuqaha have ruled that if there are 99 points of kufr and one point of Imaan, the ruling will be given on Imaan. People have grossly misunderstood this issue. They have understood that Imaan will be valid even if one believes in one item of Imaan, and that the presence of 99 points of kufr does not eliminate Imaan. But this is manifestly erroneous. If in any person there is even just one aspect of kufr, there is Ijma’ of this person being a kaafir.

The meaning of the 99 point kufr dictum is that if there are 99 angles/points of kufr in a person’s statement and only one aspect of Imaan, then on the basis of this statement the person will not be branded a kaafir. As far as the person is concerned, if he subscribes to even one aspect of kufr, he will be a kaafir.

(For example if a man believes in all the articles of Imaan and performs all the commands of the Shariah, but he believes that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) was not the Seal and Final Nabi, or that Jannat and Jahannam are not real physical abodes, then this person will be a kaafir without any difference of opinion. This one belief of kufr will eliminate his Imaan regardless of his adherence to all the other requisites of Imaan- Majlisul Ulama)
