The misunderstanding of the concept of al-Takfir in Islam is one of the factors that leads to disunity of people nowadays. The unity of a country depends on the unity of its people. Al-Takfir without rights and propositions is a violation of the concept of alWasatiyyah and a breach of the principle of al-Tabayyun. One considered as an extremist when he judges a person blindly without any proof and investigation. Hence, the role of Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama‟ah to be in the middle between two extremes seems to be significant so that the real concept of moderation is preserved in addition to comply with syariah. By using the method of libratory study, this qualitative research explains what is meant by concept of al-takfir and how its relation to the national unity. The result of research shows that the concept of al-takfir by Ahl aSunnah wa al-Jama‟ah is very specific and not to judge a person with the matters of khilafiyyah in a simple way. It is also one of the aspect to mantain the national unity and its people.
