What does Islam say about calling a Muslim “Kafir” (Disbeliever)?.

So many Muslims, so many filthy Shaykhs and scholars, they have no adab and akhlaq! no morals and no manners, being egoistic and ignorant after knowledge and authority were given, they address other Muslims as Mushrik, Kafir Abu Lahab grave worshiper etc!

Allah says about such egoistic Muslims, scholars shaykhs and leaders:
[Quran 25:43] Have you seen the one whose god is his own ego? Will you be his advocate?
[Quran 45:23] Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, God sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by God? Would you not take heed?

Being misguided after guided , being lost after saved, such is the consequences of calling another Muslim as Kafir/Mushrik/Abu Lahab/Satan/Grave worshiper etc!

Imam Nawawi (R.A) in his 40 Hadith record:
Abu Hurairah narrated that the messenger of Allah said :
“Let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day either speak good or keep silent, and let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day be generous to his neighbour, and let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day be generous to his guest.” related by Bukhari and Muslim

Sahih Muslim Book 32. Hadith Number 6219:
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Don’t nurse grudge and don’t bid him out for raising the price and don’t nurse aversion or enmity and don’t enter into a transaction when the others have entered into that transaction and be as fellow-brothers and servants of Allah. A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. He neither oppresses him nor humiliates him nor looks down upon him. The piety is here, (and while saying so) he pointed towards his chest thrice. It is a serious evil for a Muslim that he should look down upon his brother Muslim. All things of a Muslim are inviolable for his brother in faith: his blood, his wealth and his honour.

Muslim Men regardless of their Knowledge and Position in Islam, abusing other
Muslims with the Words that are related to “Disbeliever (Kafir)”

For Example: Calling a Muslim names like Kafir, Mushrik, Abu Lahab, Dajjal,
Shaitan, you and your family will go to hell, grave worshiper etc
are synonyms words of “Kafir” (Disbeliever)

Prophet (s.a.w) saying that if the attacked is not a kafir, the kufr will be reverted to the attacker! So beware oh Muslims oh Shaykhs oh Scholars!

Holy Prophet(p.b.u.h) said: If a Muslim calls another kafir, 
then if he is a kafir let it be so; otherwise, he [the caller] is himself a kafir.”(Abu Dawud, Book of Sunna)

Abu Zarr reported that the Holy Prophet(p.b.u.h) said: No man accuses another man of being a sinner, or of being a kafir but it reflects back on him if the other is not as he called him.” 
-(Bukhari, Book of Ethics; Book 78, ch. 44)

Prophet (s.a.w) said: “Withhold [your tongues] from those who say
`There is no god but Allah’ — do not call them kafir. Whoever calls a reciter of `There is no god but Allah’ as a kafir, is nearer to being a kafir himself.”
(Tabarani, reported from Ibn Umar)
