salam brothers and sisters,

I was speaking to my father regarding Islam, He told me that all other sects in Islam such as Wahhabi and the Sub sects of Shia are considered muslims. I understand Islam is believing in the oneness of Allah and that Muhammed(PBUH) is his messenger but it cant be all that can it? Like the true religion of Islam is la ilaha ila Allah w muhammed rasool ullah and following the ahlul bayt. I am a Shia, my father is a sunni and he was taught things that are considered in our sect bad. for example, my dad says muawaiyah(r.a) but i curse the name everytime he mentions them and at the same time he respects the ahlul bayt. My mother is a Shia aswell, only problem is that my dad and brother consider Wahhabism, Ismaelism and the other shia sects as muslims, is this considered right or wrong?

generally speaking anybody who says and believes la illah illallah muhamdurusullah is considered a muslim according to some ulama and some scholars differ but I agree with the first opinion on that matter.

takfir is not the shia way.

anyone who testifies that there is one god, and muhammad is his final messenger (shout out to ahmadi) is a muslim. anyone who believes that Maula Ali (as) is the successor of Muhammad (s) is a level above this. we believe that the offshoots of shiism like the agha khanis and ismailis and so on are misguided but still muslim. 

having said that, anyone who fully understands wilayat, has had the hujjat completed on them, who accepts that it is true in their hearts but cowardice prevents them from following the Imams (as), is a munafiq. these are worse than kuffar.

I'm kind of confused because the ruling by early Shia scholars was that anyone not Shia was a kafir. Like Allameh Baqir al Majlisi. There are so many hadith in his books that say thinks like the faith of one who rejects Imam Ali is not accepted, etc.

It was only until later that this ruling was changed.
