Or a person who denies any of the pillars of the faith. or any person who claims that; based on an alternate belief from another source ; that SIN is allowable based upon that source or secular law . This person will be declared as MURTAD unless he /she admits he is mistaken in that view. The person must deny the basic tennents of the faith 3 times with witnesses and not be insane  before they can be declare Murtad . No individual Muslim is allowed under Sharia to declare anyone MURTAD without recourse to Sharia .It Is a legal proceeding.Apostacy is a capital HAD crime in Islam .There is no separation of state and religionin Islam so apostacy is regarded as treason . Therfore a capital offense . Declaring another Muslim to be MURTAD   is very serious and should not be used as a political tool or as an excuse to kill political enemies . These are the methods of Taghut dictators, and lawless heretics - not Islam.

In Jammat [congregation] the sutra of the UMMAT is the IMAM .The IMAM has to get his own sutra . Fighters will use their weapons for a sutra. Wounded veterans will use their artificial limbs .

MUSHRIK     -An unbeliever,generally, a polytheist. Any religion other than Islam Chritianity,Judaism and some include Zorastrians .

note: Mushrik are buddists , hindus , new- agers  who  believe  that "all the gods are one" known as unitary diesm .This is a core belief of VEDANTA (free thinker hindus)  eg. dances of universal peace, "pir" Villayat Khan , All Jews and Christians who are signators on the SIECUS declaration, those who are infiltrated by the RECLAIMING movement of Starhawk(marxist pagan feminist  witch jew). or who have established covens(radical feminist marxism and witchcraft) in their churches -such as the Unitarians , the United Church of Christ Congregational, Unity church, all these groups reject the the Bible and the Torah - so therefor are not considered to be Christians.

MUHTASIB    -The public censor of morals and religion. He gives punishment for Had crimes. The Qur'anic term for scourge is JALDAH  . In theological terms, SAUT  DIRRAH is the terminology used nowdays for  physical punishment

.There is disagreement in Islam about every aspect of  Law because of heretical sects . Heretical sects  are intemperate,tribal , fanatic and literal in their interpretation of Sharia . This has led to extremism and intemperate  use of punishment mainly torture and human rights abuses .  Heretics practice Islamic law without the benifit of juridical evidence, lawyers or qualified judges . The traditional  4 Madhab system of law, ahl usSunnah wal- Jammah ; does not permit fanatic interpretations. In some "incident cases" things are being punished as HAD crimes that are not HAD crimes at all . Fanatic  individuals will take the law into their own hands. Individuals are not allowed to make these  legal decisions but only qualified QADI . For that reason wise Muslims will reject lawless brigadage and the heretics who are responsible for it . . Extra-Judicial  execution of law is a criminal act in itself . An example is the murder of innocent women by relatives without evidence; using nothing but their rage as evidence .Lawless rage is SHAITAN . This happens when the colonial powers destroy the Muslim court system .This leaves no formal way to redress crimes and also creates an opportunistic environment for  sociopathic criminals ,fanatics ,rapists ,sadisticdepravity, sedition ,heresy and a malicious legal environment  against which innocent people are defenseless .Heresy is a HAD crime . Now you know why.

O mankind! Keep your duty to your Lord and fear the day when the parent will not be able to help the child with anything, nor the child help the parent. Surely Allah’s promise is the very truth. Let not the life of the world beguile you, nor let the deceiver beguile you, in regard to Allah. Luqman (31):33.

O mankind! A simititude is coined, so pay attention to it: Surely those on whom you call besides Allah will never create a fly, though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly took something from them, they could not retrieve it from it. So weak are the seeker and the sought! Al-Hajj (22):73

(Al Baqara (2):284), "...whether you show what is in your mind or conceal it, Allah will call you to account for it...". when the Muslims heard this Ayah they went to Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and said: "O Rasoolullah, we cannot control ourselves, but how can we control the outburst in our hearts? (i.e. sudden thoughts that shaitan puts within us). The Prophet Muhammad said: "Do you intend to say, ‘Same’na wa ‘asaina (We hear and we disobeyed), as did both the people of the Book (i.e. the Jews and the Christians)? say, ‘Same’na wa ata’na! So they said, ‘Same’na wa ata’na’ (We hear and we obey). On hearing their reply Allah Ta’ala abrogated this verse, by revealing the 286th verse of Surah al-Baqara: "La youkalifu’llau nafsan illa wus’aha.." The aim of the 284th verse of Surah al-Baqara was to test the followers of Muhammad, may the blessings of Allah be on him and them, as to whether or not they would say the same as the Jews and the Christians who used to say, "Same’na wa ‘asaina" (We hear and we disobey).

This title is given to the false Christ (the Antichrist as termed by the Christians), who will appear before the Day of Resurrection, falsely claiming to be prophet Jesus, Son of Mary. One of the major signs of the coming of the Day of Judgment will be when the Maseeh ad-Dajjal appears. He will then be shortly followed by the Prophet Isa (Jesus), the Son of Mary, peace be on them.

To those Jews and Christians who rejected the holy Prophet Muhammad, let it be known that Muhammad is actually mentioned by name in the Old Testament in the original Hebrew Song of Solomon, Ch., 5 V. 16. But for some misguided reasons they have chosen to adulterate it by changing it from "Muhammadim" (in the Hebrew) to "altogether lovely" in the English. (Muhammad + im is a term of respect in Hebrew.) Similarly, Muhammad is actually mentioned by name in the New Testament in John 14:16-26, 15:26 and 16:13. The greek word "Periqleitos" (Paraclete), which is the equivalent of the Aramaic word "Mhamda", means precisely what "Ahmad" means in Arabic, "the most praiseworthy", and "Ahmad" is one of the Prophet Muhammad’s name, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. But for some misguided reasons they have chosen to adulterate it by changing it from "Mhamda" (in the Aramaic) to "Comforter" or "Counsellor" in the English. Many other references to Muhammad which existed in the original Torah and Ingeel have been removed altogether.Allah Taala's wrath awaits those who knowingly alter or hide His words.Allah Ta’ala has given Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, the following names: Muhammad: The one who praises and is praised. Ahmad: the Most praiseworthy. Al-Mahi: The effacer (of Kufr). Al-’Aqib: The last . Mustafa: The chosen. Al-Amin: The trusworthy. Surah 47 of the Holy Qur’an.
