To use an extreme example imam Hussein fought people even who were hafiz of Quran on day of ashura at kerbala I’m sure they considered themselves muslims and yet imam Hussein had a companion who was a Christian that died protecting Hussein on day of ashura , which one is the true Muslim? Actions and our alliances determine our true religion
