Are the Muítazilah disbelievers or are the people of innovation not to be made takfeer of?
Question:

Are the Muítazilah disbelievers or are the people of innovation not to be made takfeer of?
Answer:

The basis with them is that they are people of innovation who are not to be made takfeer of except those that are the likes of Ibraaheem An-Nidhaam who would make permissible consumption of alcohol and make permissible that which Allaah had declared unlawful. Likewise the case of Abil-Hudhail and those who were from the heads of them and would deny necessary/imperative aspects well known in the religion, as for the rest of the followers who do not know of this then they are considered innovators.
