The Kufr Of al-Istibdāl

The kufr of istibdāl (replacing parts of the Sharī’ah) without one claiming it is from Allāh
Shaykh Muhammad ibnu Ibrāhīm Aali Shaykh has a letter sent to the minister of commerce and production (Tijarah and Sana’ah), and he objected that in a body set by the ministry to arbitrate dispute about products between producers and consumers, there would be experts of man-made laws with experts of religious laws.
Shaykh Muhammad ibnu Ibrāhīm rahimahullāh said:
 
“I am thanking the minister for this explanation except that what I object to, and what all Muslims object to, and I wrote about it to his eminence the king and I spoke directly to him many times, is the matter of selecting the members of the man-made laws (Qanooniyeen) with the members of religious laws (Shar’iyeen) in this body, as it is told in the letter sent to the members. And selecting the members of the man-made laws (Qanooniyeen) with the members of religious laws (Shar’iyeen) means sharing (Ishtirak) in rulings that will be emitted in the name of conciliation and signing from the side of the qanooniyeen and Shar’iyeen.
 
And this without doubt makes these rulings submitted to the opinions of these qanooniyeen in the same manner as it is submitted to the opinions of the Shar’iyeen, and there is in this equating between the Sharī’ah and the man made Laws (Qawāneen Al-Wad’iyah) and opening the door to judging with man made laws (Al-Qawāneen Al-Wad’iyah) and replacing (Istibdāl) of the pure Sharī’ah Al Islamiyyah with them (man made laws), and this is something that the Imām of the Muslims, may Allāh protect him, and every Muslim truthful in his Islām rejects, as by judging by other than the Sharī’ah among the people, it means Al-Kufr and exiting from Islam (Khurooj minal Islām), and protection is sought from Allāh.
