In your answer stating that Jews and Christians are Kafir you provided clear evidence that Christians are Kafir. But you did not provide explicit evidence that Jews are Kafir. Can you please provide more evidence.

Islamic Text

Please do read the previous answer again, as it does contain clear evidence regarding the Jews being Kafir. In the first verse the Ahl al-Kitab are referred to as Kufar. In a later verse those who believe in part of the revelation and reject a part are called Kufar. Both apply to Jews and Christians. However, I will provide further evidence below.

عَنِ البَرَاءِ بْنِ عَازِبٍ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَوْمَ قُرَيْظَةَ لِحَسَّانَ بْنِ ثَابِتٍ: اهْجُ المُشْرِكِينَ، فَإِنَّ جِبْرِيلَ مَعَكَ

(Sayidina) Bara ibn al-Aadhib said, On the day of Quraydhah, The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said to Hassan bin Thabit, ‘Attack the idolators (Mushrikeen). Indeed Jibril is with you.’ (Sahih al-Bukhari, 4124).

In the authentic Hadith above we find the Holy Prophet ﷺ referred to the Jews as idolators (Mushrikeen). There is no doubt that idolators are Kufaar. This was said referring to the tribe of Bani Quraydhah, who were Jewish.

قَالَ: قَالَ النَّبِيُّ – صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ – يَوْمَ قُرَيْظَةَ. أَيْ: يَوْمَ مُحَاصَرَةِ بَنِي قُرَيْظَةَ طَائِفَةٍ مِنَ الْيَهُودِ فِي أَطْرَافِ الْمَدِينَةِ. (مرقاة المفاتيح شرح مشكاة المصابيح)

The Prophet ﷺ said on the day of Quraydhah. Meaning on the day of the siege of Bani Quraydhah. They are a group from the Jews and resided on the outskirts of Madinah. (Imam Ali al-Qari, Mirqaat al-Mafateeh).

As well as the explicit Hadith above, there are numerous proofs to establish the fact that the Jews are Kafir. Many such proofs were mentioned in the answer referred to above (see link below). An additional proof is the verse below.

وَمَنْ يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الْإِسْلَامِ دِينًا فَلَنْ يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِي الْآخِرَةِ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ

Whosoever desires a religion other than Islam, then it will never be accepted from him. And in the Hereafter he will be amongst the losers. (Surah Ali Imran, 85).

There is no doubt with regards to the Jews and Christians being Kufar. It is evident in the Holy Quran, Noble Sunnah and there is Ijma (scholarly consensus) upon it. Unfortunately, some people are attempting to cause doubts regarding this issue. Many such people have a perennial agenda, which jeopardises one’s Iman. May Allah Most High protect us all.

And Allah Most High Knows Best.
