What is the correct opinion concerning Al-Hajjaj Ibn Yoosuf Ath-Thaqafee? Is he a disbeliever?

♠  From:  Fataawaa of Shaikh Al-Albaanee (Rahimahullah)

 

Question: What is the correct opinion concerning Al-Hajjaj Ibn Yoosuf Ath-Thaqafee? Is he a disbeliever?

 

Answer:

We bear witness that Al-Hajjaj was an evildoer, an oppressor. However, we do not know from him that he rejected any of those aspects from the Religion, which one is required to know by necessity.

Therefore, it is not permissible to declare him a disbeliever just on the basis that he used to commit evil, oppress others and kill innocent Muslims.
