Some Muslims sometimes say, “Non-Muslims are better than Muslims.” Is there anything wrong in saying this?
Muslims should refrain from making such statements because of the risk of becoming Kuffaar. Nassabul Ihtisaab (Chapter 33 Page 72) quotes the following from a chapter of Seeratudh Dhakheera discussing words of Kufr:
“A Muslim teacher becomes a Kaafir if he tells his students that the Jews are much better than the Muslims because they fulfill the rights of those who teach their children.”
