Assalamu alaykum brothers and sisters.

Does anybody know the fiqhi ruling on agnostics in terms of whether they are najis or tahir?

Unbelievers are najis but from a fiqhi point of view, to the best of my knowledge, unbelievers are defined as those people who deny the existence of God, his final prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) or insult the 14 Masoomeen (عليه السلام) (in a nutshell).

Since agnostics are people who haven't formed an opinion either for or against the existence of God, are they considered as tahir?

Salam if they are from people of book by being born as people of book  but they don't follow any formation for praying so they are Tahir but if they deny existence of God then they are Najis .

Anyone who is not a Muslim nor from the Ahlul Kitab (Christians and Jews) are impure. This includes agnostics.

Have you come across a fatwa stating this is the case or is that an assumption? With regards to the agnostic point that is.

Is a kafir (which is impure) anyone who is not a Muslim nor from any one of the Ahl ul-Kitab or is a kafir someone who knows that Islam is the truth but still rejects it and is obstinate?

Salamun `alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu

The person, who is neither Muslim nor from the People of the Book (i.e. Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians and Sabians), is najis.

With prayers for your success

 

According to this (which is a question I previously asked on leader.ir) those who are neither a Muslim, Christian, Jew, Zoroastrian or a Sabian are impure. If an agnostic is neither one of these then he is impure.
