Some scholars have outlined that there are ten nullifiers of ones Islaam. They cancel out ones religion, good deeds and Eeman, just as the nullifiers of purity cancel ones ablution. If a person commits any one of these nullifiers, from amongst them – learning and acting upon Magic, slaughtering for other than Allah’s sake, seeking aid and supplication to other than Allah and making intermediaries with Allah, his good deeds will become void and he will be from amongst the polytheist. And if he were to die upon this state, he would be from the people of the hell-fire, and they are:

The First Nullifier:Shirk (associating partners) in the worship of Allaah. Allaah says: “Verily, Allaah does not forgive that partners be associated with Him in worship (Shirk), but He forgives what is less than that to whom He wills.” [Surah An-Nisaa: 116]And He says: “Verily, the one who mixes partners in worship with Allaah (Shirk), then Paradise has been made forbidden for him andhis final abode will be the Hellfire. And the wrongdoers will nothave any helpers (in Hell).” [Surah Al-Maa'idah: 72] 

The First & Second Nullifiers: Shirk (Part 2) & Making a intermediaries between you and Allah – Whoever places intermediaries between himself and Allaah, asking them to intercede on his behalf, and relying on them, has committed disbelief according to the unanimous agreement of the scholars.

The Third and Fourth Nullifier: Holding the polytheists to be believers and believing that some guidance other than that of the Prophet’s (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) is more complete than his guidance – Whoever does not hold the polytheists to be disbelievers, or has doubts about their disbelief or considers their ways and beliefs to be correct, has committed disbelief.Whoever believes that some guidance other than that of the Prophet’s is more complete than his guidance and that someone else’s judgement is better than his judgement, such as those who prefer the judgement of the Tawaagheet over his judgement, then he is a disbeliever. 

The Fifth and Sixth Nullifiers: Hating something that the Messenger came with and Mocking anything from the religion. Whoever hates something that the Messenger came with, even though he may act on it, has disbelieved, based on Allaah’s saying: “That is because they disliked what Allaah sent down, so He nullified their (good) deeds.” [Surah Muhammad: 9]Whoever mocks or ridicules any part of the Messenger’s Religion or its rewards or punishments has committed an act of disbelief. The proof for this is Allaah’s statement: “Say: Was it Allaah and His verses and His Messenger that you were mocking? Make no excuses, you have disbelieved after having had faith.” [Surah At-Tawbah: 65-66]

The Seventh Nullifier: Learning and practising Magic – Sorcery, which includes magic spells that causes a person to hate (sarf) or love (`atf) someone/something. So whoever performs it or is pleased with it being done, has committed disbelief. The proof for this is Allaah’s statement: “And neither of these two (angels) would teach anyone until they had first said to them: `We are only a trial (for the people), so do not commit disbelief.’” [Surah Al-Baqarah: 102]

The Eighth Nullifier: Supporting the Polytheists – Supporting and assisting the polytheists against the Muslims. The proof for this is Allaah’s statement: “And whoever amongst you takes them (i.e. the disbelievers) as allies and protectors then he is indeed from among them. Verily, Allaah does not guide a wrong-doing people.” [Surah Al-Maa'idah: 51] 

The Ninth and Tenth Nullifiers: Whoever believes he is free the Sharee’ah & Turning away from the Religion – Whoever believes that it is permitted for some people to be free of (implementing) the Sharee’ah (revealed laws) of Muhammad (i.e. Islaam), then he is a disbeliever, according to Allaah’s statement: “And whoever seeks a Religion other than Islaam, it will never be accepted from him and in the Hereafter, he will be from among the losers.” [Surah Aali `Imraan: 85] Likewise, turning away from Allaah’s Religion, not learning it or implementing it (is an act of disbelief). The proof for this is Allaah’s saying: “And who does more wrong than he who is reminded of the ayaat (signs/verses) of his Lord, then turns away from them. Verily, We shall extract retribution from the criminals.” [Surah As-Sajdah: 22] 

Conclusion: There is no difference, with regard to committing any of these nullifiers, between the one who commits them out of jest, intentionally or fear, except the one who commits them due to being coerced. All of these ten matters are from the most dangerous and most occurring. So it is upon the Muslim to beware of them and fear from falling into them. We seek refuge in Allah from those things that bring about His Anger and severe Punishment. May the peace and blessing be on the best of His creatures, Muhammad, his family and companions.

Sheikh ul Islam and Mujaddid Muhammad bin Abdul-Wahhab may Allah have mercy on him said:
In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Know that the Nullifiers of Islam are ten:

The First Nullifier; Shirk (associating partners) in the worship of Allah.

Allah Ta’ala says: {“Verily, Allah does not forgive that partners be associated with Him in worship (i.e., Shirk), but He forgives what is less than that to whom He wills.”} [4:48 and 4:116] And He Ta’ala says: {“Verily, the one who mixes partners in worship with Allah (Shirk), then Paradise has been made forbidden for him and his final abode will be the Hellfire. And the wrongdoers will not have any helpers (in Hell).”} [5:72] What falls into this is performing sacrifices to someone other than Allah, such as the person who offers a sacrifice to the Jinn or to a grave.

The Second Nullifier; Whoever places intermediaries between himself and Allah, calling unto them and asking intercession from them, and seeking reliance in them, has committed disbelief according to the Ijmaa (unanimous agreement).

The Third Nullifier; Whoever does not hold the polytheists to be disbelievers, or has doubts about their disbelief or considers their ways and beliefs to be correct, has committed disbelief.

The fourth Nullifier; Whoever believes that some guidance other than that of the Prophet’s peace be upon him is more complete than his guidance and that someone else’s judgement is better than his judgment, such as the one who prefers the judgement of the Tawaghith over his judgment, then he is a disbeliever.

The Fifth Nullifier; Whoever hates something that the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him came with, even though he may act on it, has disbelieved.

The Sixth Nullifier; Whoever mocks or ridicules any part of the Messenger’s Religion or its rewards or punishments has committed an act of disbelief. The proof for this is Allah’s statement: {“Say: Was it Allah and His verses and His Messenger that you were mocking? Make no excuses, you have disbelieved after having had faith.”} [9:65-66]

The Seventh Nullifier; Sorcery, which includes magic spells that cause a person to hate something he seeks after (sarf) or love something he doesn’t seek after (‘atf). So whoever performs it or is pleased with it being done, has committed disbelief. The proof for this is Allah’s statement: {“And neither of these two (angels) would teach anyone until they had first said to them: We are only a trial (for the people), so do not commit disbelief.”} [2:102]

The Eighth Nullifier; Supporting and assisting the polytheists against the Muslims. The proof for this is Allah’s statement: {“And whoever amongst you takes them (i.e., the disbelievers) as allies and protectors then he is indeed from among them. Verily, Allah does not guide a wrong-doing people.”} [5:51]

The Ninth Nullifier; Whoever believes that it is permitted for some people to be free of (implementing) the Shari’ah of Muhammad (i.e., Islam), just as it was permitted for al-Khidr to be free from the Shari’ah of Mousa peace be upon him, then he is a disbeliever.

The Tenth Nullifier; Turning away from Allah’s Religion, not learning it or implementing it (is an act of disbelief). The proof for this is Allah’s saying: {“And who does more wrong than he who is reminded of the ayat (signs/verses) of his Lord, then turns away from them. Verily, We shall extract retribution from the criminals.”} [32:22]

There is no difference, with regard to (committing any of) these nullifiers, between the one who jokes, the one who is serious or the one who does so out of fear. However, the one who commits them due to being coerced (is excused). We seek refuge in Allah from those things that bring about His Anger and painful Punishment. May the peace and blessing be on the best of His creatures, Muhammad.”
