Salamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu.

I have a very urgent question:

Did Abu Bakr fight those who did withheld the zakat as apostates or did he kill them as Muwahhid? Did Abu Bakr captivate, the wives and children of those who were killed because of withholding the zakat, as prisoners? And did he take their possessions as Booty? Could you please send the answers and evidences very urgently? The reason being, I had previously read, in more than one place, that they were Murtad. However, the Dai Scholars here in Macedonia and Kosovo say that Abu Bakr fought and killed them while they were Muwahhid. They say that he neither took their possessions as booty, nor did he take their wives and children as prisoners. They also say that he did not use the phrase bear witness that your deceased is in the fire. They claim that the ahadith denote this and bring as evidence the hadith wherein Umar went against Abu Bakr. Meaning, they say that this hadith denotes those who did not give zakat were Muwahhid! What is your knowledge with regards to this issue? Is there any ikhtilaf amongst the scholars regarding this? Meaning, are there scholars who say they are Murtad and others who say they are Muwahhid? Please send a very, very urgent answer in sha Allah.

They say, Umar r.a. did not want to fight the Murtad and went against Abu Bakr, and ask then why didnt Abu Bakr make takfir of Umar?

They are very confused and greatly confuse the Ummah. These false Albanian scholars whom are callers of Jahannam have announced an article which they prepared regarding Dhatul-Anwat. The issue they have at hand is The Sahabah (who are far from it) committed major shirk when they made the request regarding Dhatul-Anwat. However, the prophet s.a.w.s. did not make takfir of them because they were new converts and ignorant.

When I was explaining that they were wrong in this issue, they took in hand the issue of zakat and the argument that took place between Umar and Abu Bakr. They also said, Abu Bakr fought against the Baghi-Bedouin tribes who denied the Zakat, however, he did not make takfir of them nor did he say that they were Murtad because they denied Zakat by means of Tawil. Even-so, they did not become Murtad.

I said to them, No, the issue is not like you said, Abu Bakr called them Murtad and fought them. This is because there were also those who did not deny the Zakat from amongst them, however, they withheld the Zakat because of stinginess. But Abu Bakr gave all of them the same ruling (Murtad) and fought them since they collaborated and altogether fought against the Khalifah. Abu Bakr and the Sahabah passed the same verdict (Murtad) with regards to all of them and fought against them without asking.

They then said, If they were Murtad, then why did Umar not want to fight them and went against Abu Bakr? Abu Bakr did not make Takfir of them. These prove that ignorance or Tawil are excuses with regards to major shirk or denying a fardh and that the person who falls under these categories will not be made takfir of.

I do not know if I was able to explain myself? They want to bring the issue in such a state that, if one is ignorant or has a Tawil, he will not be made takfir of whether it is a matter of major shirk, kufr, or denial of Zakat.

In sha Allah I was able to explain myself. I have very restricted information regarding this issue in the Albanian, Bosnian, and Macedonian languages. However, there is more information in the Turkish language. Since I do not rely upon anyone other than you and because you have more knowledge and information, I am asking you. May Allah increase your knowledge. Salamu Alaykum.

Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah Rahimahullh stated,

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

"The lim (scholar) recognizes the Jhil (ignorant) since he was once a Jhil. The Jhil does not recognize the lim since he has never been an lim." (Shaykh'ul Islm Ibnu Taymiyyah, Majm'ul Fatw, 13/235)
