SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – There are various kinds of disbelief (Kofr) and one of them is not believing in God. According to Ayah 9 of Surah Al-Hajj: Twisting things around in order to lead others astray from God’s way; these people do this because of enmity towards Allah (SWT) and the Prophet (PBUH) for their own interests. There are people who do not believe in God’s blessings, it is mentioned in Ayah 40 of Surah Al-Naml: Some deny God’s bounties and blessings.
Therefore disbelief sometimes is, denying God and other time is not giving thanks for God’s blessings. Ayahs 84-85 of Surah Al-Baqarah said: We made a covenant with you to refrain from bloodshed but you ignored the order and disbelieved. In Ayah 4 of Surah Al-Momtahanah, the Prophet Ibrahim (AS) told disbelievers in the Almighty: We disbelieve in you and we stay away from you; meaning believers in Allah (SWT) must not believe those who deny God and must stay away from them.
