    Question: Are all Shias non Muslims?

    Answer ID: 127

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 108/L=108/L) All the Shias are not kafir. Only the Shias are kafir who believe in the following: that Hazrat Gebriel (the angle) mistakenly put revelation to Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) instead of Hazrat Ali. who believe that Hazrat Ali (Razi Allahu anhu) was a god who blame on Hazrat Ayshah (Razi Allahu anha) of adultery who believe corruption in the Holy Quran and who deny the companionship (Suhbat) of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Razi Allahu anhu) (Fatawa Shami, 4/135) But the Shias who believe only that Hazrat Ali was better (Afzal) than other companions and do not have other Shiite beliefs then they will not be considered as kafir.
