Sheikh Atiyyatullah al-Libi said: “Our Takfir upon those rulers is a matter of derived Nadari knowledge. This is the case with most of the rulers today. The matter is not a matter from the matters of the religion known by necessity which has reached to the level of the agreement of the Muslims such that the ignorant one who opposes this ruling has his claim rejected.
It is not from the issues known by necessity such as the ruler who openly states his own disbelief and abandoning of the religion, or the likes of Musaylamat al Kazzab.”
