Assalamu alaykum.

I want to ask a question regarding a matter which I searched for but could not find on your beneficial website.

Some people say and bring statements of the scholars that salaah, the beard, isbaal, and hijaab are signs of Islam in daarul kufr and that one who posesses these should be treated like a Muslim until he openly manifests kufr. Now, is the salaah, the beard, the isbaal, and the hijaab signs of Islam and -if these are the asl- can a person whose ‘aqeedah is unknown in daarul kufr be treated like a Muslim? They say these signs are in their origin of Islam and because of this fact we treat the possessors of such signs like Muslims and that if they had the signs of Kufr, they would have treated them like the kaafir. Inshaallah you will be able to give a detailed explanation to this. May Allah be pleased with you all.

والعالم يعرف الجاهل؛ لأنه كان جاهلا، والجاهل لا يعرف العالم لأنه لم يكن عالما

"The Ālim (scholar) recognizes the Jāhil (ignorant) since he was once a Jāhil. The Jāhil does not recognize the Ālim since he has never been an Ālim." (Shaykh'ul Islām Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majmū'ul Fatāwā, 13/235)

Assalamu alaykum.

Some of them claim they hold the middle course between the two paths and that they view salah and the other shiar as Alamat of Islam. Even though our era consists of abodes of kufr, they still say that they account these as Alāmat. When they say between the two paths, they say that they neither invalidate nor give hukm of Islam with these Alamat. They claim they will treat such person as a muslim and will not pass the judgment of kufr or Islam until they witness their kufr or Islām.

Is there a thing such as this, not passing judgment of Islam yet treating such person as muslim due to witnessing the Alamat?

Quote from: Question
My question is regarding those who accept prayer as alamah of Islam or those who do not accept it as alamah but do not make takfeer of the one who accepts it as alamah. Their doubt is as follows: If you accept prayer as something peculiar to Muslims and make takfeer then Imam Ahmad must be kaafir for you. If you say that prayer was alamah of being Muslim after kufr during the time of Imam Ahmad and only Muslims pray it we say: During the time of Imam Ahmad even before him there were zanadiqah. So both the Muslims and the kafir were praying. (Jahmiyyah, Hululiyyah etc) If I am not wrong, they bring evidence from Ibn Muflih that he accepted prayer as alamah of Islam when kufr and shirk was wide spread. What is the response to these? I hope with your response they will find guidance.

Quote from: Question
My first question is: What ruling can be given to those who live in Dar’ul Harb whose Aqidah is unknown by us? Is there a difference between the lands in which the Kufr law is implemented and the lands which used to be Dar’ul Islam and became Dar’ul Kufr when giving ruling to the people? In addition, does everyone have a ruling for their own situation and will these matters be taken in consideration?

Second question: Has the Alamat of Islam ever changed in the past? What are the Alamat of Islam today?
