Commanding good & forbiding evil shall not be forfeited until death

The saying of these people is a clear Kufr -- although some sects fell into this without knowing that it is Kufr. For it is known, by necessity, from the Deen of Islaam that the Commanding and Forbidding are incumbent on every 'Abd as long as he is sane until he dies. They would not be waivered for him by his witnessing Al-Qadar nor by other means. Hence, whoever did not know that, it should be made known to him. If he insisted on believing in the waivering of the Commanding and Forbidding, he should be killed.

Such utterances were numerous amongst the recent people. Whereas amongst the predecessors of this Ummah such utterances were not known. For these utterances are indeed in opposition to Allah (SWT) and His Messenger (SAAWS), hostile to Them, an obstruction in His path, renouncing Him, denial of His Messengers, antagonistic to Him in His Decree even though the one who says that might not be aware of it and believes that what he is on is the way of the Messenger (SAAWS) and the way of the enlightened allies (Awleyaa) of Allah.

In such a way he is similar to the one who believes that As-Salaat is not incumbent on him since he can dispense with it because of the experiences of the hearts which have occured to him; or believes that liquors are allowable to him due to him being of the elite who could not be harmed by drinking liquors; or that lusting is allowable for him because he became as a sea which can not be spoiled by sins, etc.
