Does anyone have any idea how muslims treat kafirs? I mean should we respect kafirs or should we hate them? Or would the most muslim way be to just be normal like all others but not getting good friends with them.. I would really like if you have some hadiths and surrahs about this...Thank you

that depends on who they are if you mean like an atheist then they dont belive in God and have no values of religion to how they would treat us and they may choose to respect us or to call us terrorist as many of them do if you are speaking about people of the book i heard they belive Jesus said to love the humilliated the poor the sinners and the belivers and i found evidence about how muslims should treat the people of the book: You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers [to be] the Jews and those who associate others with Allah; and you will find the nearest of them in affection to the believers those who say, "We are Christians." That is because among them are priests and monks and because they are not arrogant.5:82

As long as people are not aggressive or belligerent towards us, we must treat everyone with respect and as members of the family of Bani Adam. We should treat everyone, Muslim and non-Muslim, with respect and civility.

Hello :) Muslims Treat Kafirs Normal But The Faith and The Rilligion Change , Allah Says On The Quran Surat Al-Kafirun : {Say, "O disbelievers, I do not worship what you worship. Nor are you worshippers of what I worship Nor will I be a worshipper of what you worship. Nor will you be worshippers of what I worship. For you is your religion, and for me is my religion."}

caabi: We must be very careful in what responses we give here, because potentially hundreds of non-Muslims may see them. We do not want to send out misinformation or propagate misunderstandings about our religion.

The Qur'an allows Muslim men to marry Christian or Jewish women, even without them converting to Islam. It is completely inconceivable that the Qur'an would allow me to have a Christian wife but not a Christian "friend". How can I not be friends with my Christian wife? How can you share the marriage bed with someone, and have that person play a leading role in the upbringing of your child, if you cannot be "friends" with them.

In the context of the Qur'an, righteous and responsible ulema have explained that when the Qur'an says to not take the non-believers as "awliyaa", it means as protecting friends, as guardian friends. Also, they should not be taken as intimate friends above Muslims (this is why marriage to Christian/Jewish women is generally discouraged unless there is some good reason for it).

In other words, you can be casual friends with your Christian neighbour. But if you're the Saudi government, you should not take America as your protecting ally and believe every satellite photo that they show you! They may pretend to be your protectors and well-wishers but they are not.

For Christians, there are similar cautions given in the New Testament. In 2 Corinthians 6:14, Paul states: "Do not yoke yourselves with the unbelievers." So Islam is not unique in offering such cautionary warnings to its followers.

Salam,

About this issue is to do with [Al-wala Wal-bara] loving and hating for the sake of Allah and Allah told us and says in sura 60 v1 [O ye who believe! Take not my enemies and yours as friends (or protectors),- offering them (your) love, even though they have rejected the Truth that has come to you, and have (on the contrary) driven out the Prophet and yourselves (from your homes), (simply) because ye believe in Allah your Lord! If ye have come out to strive in My Way and to seek My Good Pleasure, (take them not as friends), holding secret converse of love (and friendship) with them: for I know full well all that ye conceal and all that ye reveal. And any of you that does this has strayed from the Straight Path] You see Allah calls those who do not believe in Him as enemy and also says they are your enemies too and that is because they disbelieved in Him and His messenger [Salallahu aleyhi wasalam] therefore, every single disbeliever is the enemy of Allah and the enemy of the Muslims and the example would be when Ibrahim disowned His father and his people just like Allah says,

[There is for you an excellent example (to follow) in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people: "We are clear of you and of whatever ye worship besides Allah. we have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred for ever,- unless ye believe in Allah and Him alone": But not when Abraham said to his father: "I will pray for forgiveness for thee, though I have no power (to get) aught on thy behalf from Allah." (They prayed): "Our Lord! in Thee do we trust, and to Thee do we turn in repentance: to Thee is (our) Final Goal](60 v4) Know est what Ibrahim says about his people here, 'we have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred for ever,- unless ye believe in Allah and Him alone":

Therefore no Muslim should be close to a non Muslim but however for the sake of spreading the religion we must be in good of character and manners but we do not take them as friends and advisers because they are the people of hell fire and none of us wants to be in hell fire.

Anwar, it is true Muslim men can marry a jew or christian virgin woman, but can a Muslim woman marry a jew or christian man...? and why do the none jews and christian have to pay the Jizziyah taxing...? and why are we not allowed to take the Jizziyah from those who worship fire and cows and sun and the planets and that they must become Muslim.....?

Secondly look what Allah says,[O ye who believe! Take not my enemies and yours as friends (or protectors),- offering them (your) love, even though they have rejected the Truth that has come to you] Allah is telling us He Has an enemies when He says, [take not my enemies] and how is it that they become the enemies of Allah well Allah tells us and says, [they have rejected the Truth that has come to you] meaning the only reason why they have become the enemies of Allah is that they rejected the call of Allah and that is to believe in Him and His messenger and to become Muslims, and this is the reason why Allah says,

[There is for you an excellent example (to follow) in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people: "We are clear of you and of whatever ye worship besides Allah. we have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred for ever,- unless ye believe in Allah and Him alone": But not when Abraham said to his father: "I will pray for forgiveness for thee, though I have no power (to get) aught on thy behalf from Allah." (They prayed): "Our Lord! in Thee do we trust, and to Thee do we turn in repentance: to Thee is (our) Final Goal] This is the reason why Allah starts in this verse, [There is for you an excellent example (to follow) in Abraham and those with him] and the example that Allah wants us to follow is when Allah says do not take may enemies and your enemies as friends and offering them love is how Abrahim dealt with those who rejected the call and how Abrahim acted upon the verse above when Allah says, [O ye who believe! Take not my enemies and yours as friends (or protectors),- offering them (your) love] that is why when they rejected the call to Allah Abrahim says, [we have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred for ever] so here the only reason why Abrahim says we are enemies of each other and that we hate you to his father and to his people is only because they rejected Allah so how can Abrahim the friend of Allah become the friend of those who hate Allah and His religion that why Abrahim says here, [unless ye believe in Allah and Him alone] meaning that we will take as friends and allies and we will love you and support but the condition is that you believe Allah alone.

So my brother Anwar, I can not lie about Allah and what He Has commanded us I can not compromise but one thing I agree is and I have said it earlier is that you must be in good of character and manors for the sake of spreading the religion but if we compromise our religion for the sake of someone else then Allah becomes angry and I would rather have the anger of a human been then Allah, so my advice is that Allah says, [Not upon you (Muhammad ) is their guidance] [2 v272] this means Allah guides people to His religion but others can not guide others to His religion just like Allah says, [Whomsoever Allah sends astray, none can guide him] [7 v186] but our job is to teach His religion without compromising as it was revealed to others with sincerity and for His sake not for the sake of others.

My brother Anwar, I do not meant to be hush as your a Muslim and as your my brother in Islam and as I am your friend and support I understand your advice and I ask Allah to reward you for your good intentions and I wish we had more like you who speak out and say what they think is right as a Muslim is an adviser to one another and please do not hesitate to correct me if am wrong in what I have writing here and I ask Allah to forgive me if I have said and writing what displeases Him.

Well, I am in a wrong age group here. If you say that most of you are below 30, then I can be a father to most of you, thus qualifying me to offer (not necessarily acceptable) some advice. Read the story of Sheik Yusuf Estes, a former Christian Music Minister, on what sparked him to study Islam revert together with his whole family. Go to the DeenShow.com and seek out his story and you will hear that he was firstly impressed with the behavior of a muslim visitor to his home, whom he was bent earlier to convert to Christianity. They are many others like him. Visit also the GuideUs TV broadcast from Chicago hosted by Eddie. Perhaps, after listening to all these, you will be more mellowed in your encounters with the non-muslims even if they throw nasty remarks at you. They will realize that they actually focus on muslims instead of Islam. Every religion has its bad hats or black sheep and Christians, no less. There used to be numerous news of the IRAs in the Press but there were never termed as Catholic terrorists, why a different dub on muslims, who hijack Islam for whatever reasons then? I suggest you listen to Sheik Yusuf if you haven't.......
