Taken From Ahlu Sunnah WalJamaah.Com Who Has The Right ToMake Takfir al-Muayyin(Takfir Of An Individual)Of Muslims & TheKuffaarBy Abdul Kareem IbnOzzie
 
The takfires (those who make unjustifiedtakfir al-muayyin (takfir of an individual) of Muslims) claim any one can make takfiral-muayyin(takfir of a particular individual)and it is incorrect to claim only thatonly the scholars can make takfiral-muayyin (takfir of a particularindividual). The reason they say this is because they always maketakfir of individual Muslim rulers but the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah(who they take their fiqh, tafsir, hadeeth checking and aqeedah frometc) do not make takfir of the Muslim rulers.Due to the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah not making takfir on today’sMuslim rulers, the takfires have decided they and other Muslims (lay men, daaeeis and student s of knowledge) can make takfir onindividual Muslims especial the Muslim rulers.The issue of who can make takfir of a specific individual is one thatneeds clarification however the takfires never clarify the issue, thishelps them distort the issue of can make takfir so they can justify their own position.The people who takfir can be made of are different and thereforethose who have the right to make takfir of each type of people aredifferent. Those who can make takfir of a person/the people whotakfir can be made of, has different categories. So some people only the scholars can make takfir of and some people every Muslim canand has to make takfir of as it is obligatory upon every Muslim tomake takfir of these people.These categories are:
First: The Original Kaafir
They are dived into two.1. Making takfir of an individual with no religion: Atheist (those whodo not believe in Allah and agnostics (those who believe in Allah but
 
reject all religions including Islam) – All Muslims (lay men, daaeeis,students of knowledge and scholars) can (and have to) make takfir of a person who belongs to this group based on their actions and beliefs because their actions are major kufr (disbelieve) and their beliefs aremajor kufr and Allah and his messenger have made takfir of thesepeople in the Quran and Sunnah. Also there is an ijmah (consensus)of the Muslims on this group being kufr based on their actions and beliefs.
Shaykh Ubaid al-Jabiree
said in regard to these people they arekuffaar because they have not accepted the words of Allah. Theshaykh said, “Every Muslim should know there are two types in thereligion, those who have accepted the words of Allah and they are theMuslims and those who haven't and they are the Kuffaar, this is basedon evidence from the Quran, the Sunnah and the ijmah (consensus of the Scholars).”2. Making takfir of an individual who follows another faith likeChristianity, Judaism, Sikhism, Hinduism and any other religion. AllMuslims (lay men, daaeeis, students of knowledge and scholars) can(and have to) make takfir of a person who belongs to this group based on their actions and beliefs because their actions are major kufr(disbelieve) and their beliefs are major kufr and Allah and hismessenger have made takfir of these people in the Quran andSunnah. Also there is an ijmah (consensus) of the Muslims on thisgroup being kufr based on their actions and beliefs. Also there is anijmah (consensus) of the Muslims on this group being kufr based ontheir actions and beliefs.
Shaykh Ubaid al-Jabiree
said in regard to these people “those who have not responded to the call of Allah they are the Jews, theChristians and the Hindus..; and these are the kuffaar (disbelievers)due to the evidence in the Quran, the Sunnah and the ijmah(consensus of the Scholars).”
