Are the Kuffar (disbelievers) our brothers in humanity? [Reply by Allamah al-Fawzaan]

Question: There are those who say that the Kuffâr (disbelievers) are our brothers in humanity and not in the religion. Is this true?

Allamah Saaleh bin Fawzaan al-Fawzân: It is not sufficient with the humanity. One does not speak like that in order to please them or to gain their sympathies. One does not speak like that.

 One says that they are our enemies and not that they are our brothers in humanity. One says that they are our enemies. What is the benefit of a human fraternity if they are our enemies in the religion? What does it benefit?

 Pharaoh was also a human. Right? Was he also our brother?

 We do not say that. [end]
