Kuffar (Arabic: ???? k?fir; plural ????? kuff?r ) is an Arabic word meaning persons who hides, denies, or covers the truth. In cultural terms, it is a derogatory term used to describe non-Muslims, Muslims of a differing sect, or an apostate from Islam. It is often translated into English as “infidel” and carries the weight of a racial epithet.
Debate exists between some Muslim scholars as to whether the term applies to Jews and Christians. Generally speaking, the more fundamentalist the scholar, the more likely they will rule that this term applies to those groups.
