Yeah, disblieve and unbelieve is same. Disbelieve and nonbelieve is like not believing some parts.

NO, not all non Muslims are considered kafirs.

If you cal someone a kafir, that's bad on you.

So, who are the kafirs among non-muslims?

First of all the "kafir" does not mean unbeliever or faithless. The word literally means "ingrate" which in turn means "thankless person". So as you can see the use of the word and its meaning has got nothing to do with faith or Imaan.

Some distinguish between Kafir and non-Muslims, as Kafir is used by the Qur'an for people who were guilty of rejection or non-acceptance of what it says is the truth, even after it has supposedly become fully apparent to them, while non-Muslim is primarily a term implying a person who does not ascribe to the Islamic faith.

Kafar (verb) = Cover (verb)

they even sound the same

Cover is an arabic word derived from Kafar (the verb)

Kafir is the noune for that verb.

in arabic thay say

"Kafara Al taaam" meaning he covered the food

Or in the Quraaan Allah says " Kafara ankum sayyaaatokum" mening god covered your evil acts from coming back to you and harming you on judgment

We also have a term called " Kaffara of the sin" which means the blocker of the sin

We also have the perfume they use on the dead Called

"Kafoor " in english " Kamphour"

very lilkly that even this is a derivative of the "kafar" verb to mean covering and blocking the bad smell of the dead person

Kafir is whom who covers, Blocks or denies the existance of Allah

Kufr is stages and any sin is a form of relative kufr however the high level of kufr which Allah refers to in the quraan is the denying of the existance of god almighty

Sins are kufr of gods religion because they represent blocking and deniing and covering his law however they are not considered to be denying the best news in creation " Allah's existance"
