Question: Is it an act of Kufr (disbelief) if someone claims that eating from the meat of animals slaughtered by Mushriks (people who associate others with Allaah in worship) is lawful on the grounds that Allaah says: So eat of that (meat) on which Allaah’s Name has been pronounced (while slaughtering the animal), if you are believers in His Aayaat (proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). ? They argue that the Aayah (Qur’aanic verse) is self-explanatory, stick to their opinion, and do not accept anyone’s advice; are they considered kaafirs (disbelievers)?
