• difference • between • a • taaghoot • and • a • kaafir •

I read in the past a very simple rule made by Sheikh Ali Al-Khudair in how to distinguish between the Taghout and a normal Kafir.

He said in his book Al-Wijazah:

“The Tughyaan (the noun of Taghout) is every going beyond the limits. So for example the one who left the prayer is a Kafir, but if he calls to leave the prayer, and punish those who pray, he will be considered a Taghout. The same goes with the one who slaughters for other than Allah, this is Shirk, but if he calls people to it, he will be a Taghout.. and so on”.
