Correctly interpreting the words of your Brother …

In the name of Allah, all praise is due to He, The One. I send peace and blessings upon his final messenger (Al-Mustafa), and upon his family, companions, and those that followed him in righteousness until The Day of Resurrection (Youm Al-Qiyaamah). To proceed:

Usama ibn Zayd said, “The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) sent us to al-Huraqa (a sub-tribe of Juhayna) and we came upon the people in the morning at their springs. A man of the Ansar and I overtook one of their men. When we descended on him, he said, ‘There is no god but Allah.’ The Ansari held back from him, but I stabbed him with my spear until I had killed him. When we arrived in Madina, that reached the Prophet and he said, ‘O Usama, did you kill him after he had said, “There is no god but Allah”?’ I said, ‘Messenger of Allah, he was only trying to save himself.’ He said, ‘Did you kill him after he had said, “There is no god but Allah”?’ He continued to repeat it to me until I wished that I had not become Muslim until that day.” [Agreed upon]

‎”The scholars derived an important rule from the hadeeth of Usaamah ibn Zaid, they said: If a man were to say something, or do something that could be interpreted one hundred ways, ninety nine ways upon kufr (disbelief) and one way upon Islam, then it is obligatory to interpret the action, or saying upon Islam. This is, in short, the manhaj of the Salafiyeen regarding takfeer.”

 

Quote from: Sheikh Mashhoor Hasan Aal-Salman (hafithahu Allah)

Taken from his book:   السلفية النقية وبراءتها من الأعمال الردية —The Pure Salafiyyah and its Innocence from the Poor Actions

 

And all prays due to Allah the lord of the worlds, and the peace and blessings upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and his companions.
