Why do Muslims call non-Muslims as ‘Kafirs’?


1. ‘Kafir’ means one who rejects.

‘Kafir’ is derived from the word ‘kufr’, which means to conceal or to reject. In Islamic terminology, ‘Kafir’ means one who conceals or rejects the truth of Islam and a person who rejects Islam is in English called a ‘non-Muslim’.


“O ye who believe! Fulfil (all) obligations. Lawful unto you (for food) are all four-footed animals with the exceptions named.”

[Al Qur’an 5:1]

“And cattle He has created for you (men): from them ye derive warmth, and numerous benefits, and of their (meat) ye eat.”

[Al Qur’an 16:5]

“And in cattle (too) ye have an instructive example: from within their bodies We produce (milk) for you to drink; there are, in them, (besides), numerous (other) benefits for you; and of their (meat) ye eat.”

[Al Qur’an 23:21]
