Peace be upon you. Fitna is when a person sows intrigue among Muslims, causing disunity and enmity. Takfirism comes from takfir, which is when someone declares that a person is not a Muslim, whether done justly or unjustly. Remember that the Prophet (PBUH) said: "Whoever declares a Muslim to be a kafir (infidel), has himself become a kafir." Other hadiths classified as sahih (sound), as narrated by al-Tabarani, include: "Leave in peace those who say that there is no god but Allah. Don't declare them kuffar (infidels) for committing a sin. For whoever declares he who recites that there is no god but Allah to be a kafir, is himself closest to kufr (infidelity)." May Allah reserve the place for the great mujahideen for the Emir Khalifa (Caliph) Osama bin Laden.
