Man does not have the authority to judge another in matters of faith as he cannot see into the hearts of others therefore Allah enjoins that He be the Judge of such affairs. There are dozens of verses from the Quran which attest to this fact and here are some:[002:188] Do not usurp each other’s possessions unfairly _ by foul means and fraud. Do not, knowingly and sinfully, give (bribes, or false) statements to a judge (or others in authority, intending) to usurp the (rights and) possessions of others.

[005:050] Do they, then, seek the rules (and rites) of the (pagan) ignorance (of earlier days)? For a nation with faith, who could be a better Judge (and Guide), if not Allah?

[026:113] “My Lord alone has the prerogative to judge them, if only you could realize.”

[055:031] For you, the two sin laden groups, (one of men, the other of jinn), We would soon devote Ourselves (exclusively to judge you)!

[060:003] Your relatives and your children will not benefit you on the Day of Judgment; He (God) will judge (all matters) between you. Allah watches everything you do!

[002:113] The Jews say: “The Christians have naught (to stand) upon; and the Christians say: “The Jews have naught (To stand) upon.” Yet they (Profess to) study the (same) Book. Like unto their word is what those say who know not; but God will judge between them in their quarrel on the Day of Judgment.
[003:055] ……………(partial verse)…….. Then shall ye all return unto me, and I will judge between you of the matters wherein ye dispute.

[004:141] …………..(partial verse)……….”Did we not gain an advantage over you, and did we not guard you from the believers?” but God will judge between you on the Day of Judgment. And never will God grant to the unbelievers a way (to triumphs) over the believers.

[006:114] Say: “Shall I seek for judge other than God?……..(partial verse)……….

[010:093] ……….(partial verse)……..Verily God will judge between them as to the schisms amongst them, on the Day of Judgment.

[016:124] The Sabbath was only made (strict) for those who disagreed (as to its observance); But God will judge between them on the Day of Judgment, as to their differences.

[021:112] Say: “O my Lord! judge Thou in truth!” “Our Lord Most Gracious is the One Whose assistance should be sought against the blasphemies ye utter!”
[022:017] Those who believe (in the Quran), those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Sabians, Christians, Magians, and Polytheists,- God will judge between them on the Day of Judgment: for God is witness of all things.

[022:056] On that Day of Dominion will be that of God: He will judge between them: so those who believe and work righteous deeds will be in Gardens of Delight.

[022:069] “God will judge between you on the Day of Judgment concerning the matters in which ye differ.”

Even if we judge others we need to do so based on Guidance from Allah and only in those cases where we have permission to judge someone. However we can never judge another person’s faith because that is an impossibility for a human to do.

Also, we should fear hypocrisy and practice what we preach.

Indeed Allah is the best of Judges
