Not all the types of Kufr ‘Amaly (disbelief in actions) do not put one beyond the pale of Islam. Some types of Kufr ‘Amaly do put one beyond the pale of Islam, namely, the acts that indicate scorn and disdain for religion, like treading on the Qur’an, cursing one of Allah’s Messengers while knowing he is a Messenger, ascribing a son to Allah, prostrating oneself before other than Allah, offering a sacrifice to other than Allah, and abandoning the Obligatory Prayers out of laziness, based on the saying of the Prophet (peace be upon him):
The covenant between us and them is Salah, whoever abandons it has disbelieved.
Narrated by Imam
Ahmad, and the Compilers of Sunan
with a Sahih Isnad on the authority of
Buraydah ibn Al-Hasib (may Allah be pleased with him). The Prophet (peace be upon him) also said:
What is between a person and committing Shirk (associating partners with Allah) and Kufr (disbelief) is abandoning Salah.
in his Sahih book on the authority of
Jabir ibn `Abdullah Al-Ansary (may Allah be pleased with them).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
