the difference between a mushrik and a kafir
Posted May 14, 2011on:
shrik is more general than kufr
for ever mushrik is a kafir but not every kafir is a mushrik.
The mushrik worships Allah and worships other than Him.
As for the kafir,he rejects the existence of Allah the mighty and exalted and does not acknowledges Allah the mighty and majestic and nor does he acknowledge a religions.this is the rejecting kafir.
As for the Mushrik he acknowledges and believes,however he worships Allah and worships others than Him he is a Mushrik Kafir.
Thus every mushrik is a kafir,but not every Kafir is a mushrik , since the kafir can be a Rejecter, Atheist.
Allah hath promised the hypocritical men and hypocritical women and unto the open infidels Hell-Fire, wherein they shall be abiders: sufficient is that unto them. And Allah shall accurse them, and theirs shall be a torment lasting.9 (68)
