Whoever disbelieves in Allah after his belief... except for one who is forced [to renounce his religion] while his heart is secure in faith. But those who [willingly] open their breasts to disbelief, upon them is wrath from Allah , and for them is a great punishment - Al Nahl - 106 I am quite sure that you have not opened your breast to disbelief in ...

Common people may not issue the verdict of Kufr on a Muslim, unless he explicitly confirms it. A Muslim may be described as "doing an action of Kufr" if that is clearly the case, but that does not make him a Kafir. An example of such an action would be to abandon praying completely. To claim Kufr of a Muslim, an Islamic judge has to go through a number of ...

Kufr is not automatically shirk, but major shirk is automatically kufr. In addition, kufr is not restricted solely to rejecting Islam; rather, kufr comprises nullifying Islam, too, which can happen while still accepting or embracing the tenets of the Muslim faith. Kufr may be used along with shirk to mean the same thing: حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو غَسَّانَ ...

I can answer you from the Shia perspective. According to the Imami school which is the Shia school of theology, human accountability for his deeds and Divine compensation for them are necessary features of Divine justice. And for human responsibly and Divine compensation to be fairly possible, there must be free will. So denial of free will logically ...

It's far-fetched to consider this kufr. In fact, nothing I found implied it's even haram. An IslamWeb fatwa discouraged healthy people taking a premarital HIV test (without saying it's haram). However, an AboutIslam fatwa said it is good practice to have a blood test before marriage in the context of cousin marriage. So there seems to be nothing ...

The simple answer is No, it is not Kufr Hiding the sin Exposing the sin makes it worse, because it consists of two sins, the initial sin in addition to exposing it, Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "Every one of my followers will be forgiven except those who expose (openly) their wrongdoings. An ...

Depends, there is a difference between saying you claim knowledge of the unseen (for example this person will die tomorrow at noon) or predicting a possibility which may occur in the future based on facts and info available to you (for example based on the direction the tornado is heading it is estimated that it will cause 2 million in damage expenditure!). ...

If Bozo the Clown was trying to prove the Qur'an scientifically accurate, do you think it would be problematic to doubt him? It's not disbelief. It's not the Qur'an you're doubting, it's the person's claims about the Qur'an. In fact, the Qur'an encourages Muslims to investigate in these circumstances: O you who have believed, if there comes to you a ...

Kuffar (disbelievers) remain in Hell forever. This is expressed in the Quran in multiple places in multiple ways e.g: إن تستغفر لهم سبعين مرة فلن يغفر الله لهم ذلك بأنهم كفروا بالله ورسوله If you should ask forgiveness for them seventy times - never will Allah forgive them. That is because they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger. — Quran 9:...

Al Wahab didn't introduce/originally derive this concept. He just propagated and 'popularized' it (for lack of a better term). It is a very old concept. In fact, we saw Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) demonstrating this Islamic principle! There has already been for you an excellent pattern in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people,...

Your impression of takfīr as a hugely risky process is indeed correct. The Prophet ﷺ warned his companions, and the rest of the Muslim nation, of the risk involved of publicly declaring one as a disbeliever is that one (or both) of them bears the title (either the one declaring or the one being declared against): حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي ...

Short Answer is: Yes, there is a hadith from Prophet Muhammad (SAW). His majesty says: Think about all things, but don't think about essence and nature of Allah. تَفَكَّروا في كُلِّ شَيءٍ، وَ لا تَفَكَّروا في ذاتِ اللّه [1] or Think about whatever Allah has created, but don't think in essence of Allah. If you do so, then you would destroy your life. ...

Well Gunah(sin- Ma'siah) is, doing something against Allah orders non-intentionally(sometimes intentionally). And after that, becomes regretful and ask god to forgive. For example: Drinking alcohol, But Kufr is different. Kufr means you do not believe in Allah and deny him. Kufr is, a person deny Allah. However if that person becomes highly regret and ...

While there will be strict scholars who readily declare disbelief, there's many high-level scholars who declare that intention is required for disbelief (see below). A chuckle at the TV would not suffice unless you were intentionally mocking God's laws. 1. Al-Azhar University prepared The Response (pdf, URL), which states: Accordingly, a Muslim must not ...

Salaam Sister, Don't worry ... every person makes mistakes. But the important thing to do is, to realise if you have made a mistake and to repent for that mistake. And ask Allah for his love, mercy and guidance. And inshallah Allah, who is Love himself (it is his attribute, sifat).. Allah loves you... the very fact that you are fearful and want to return to ...

Anyone who does not believe in the existence of Allah is committing Kufr (disbelief) as the Quran has applied the word to them: ومن لم يؤمن بالله ورسوله فإنا أعتدنا للكافرين سعيرا And whoever has not believed in Allah and His Messenger - then indeed, We have prepared for the disbelievers a Blaze. — Quran 48:13 Denying responsibility for doing ...

The hadith you are talking about was narrated in both Bukhari and Muslim as follows: لايؤمن أحدكم حتى يحب لأخيه ما يحب لنفسه None of you [truly] believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself. It doesn't mean that you will become a disbeliever if you don't love for your brother what you love for yourself, rather it means that your ...

In The Name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful. No, you didn't become one of those who consider the haram halal. What you did is, you lied. More specifically, you lied to reconcile between you and your uncle. In that case, lying is permissible. The evidence for that is found in the following hadith. Humaid b. 'Abd al-Rahman b. 'Auf reported ...

No. What you are describing is, men bringing back dinosaurs from their DNA. But man still need the DNA. This isn't creating life. This would be using a process to use earth's resources to make something. That is not haram. So, no, you didn't commit kufr.


2

This does not constitute kufr in my opinion; kufr relates to matters of religious truth and whether or not you accept them, and you didn't deny the doctrine that only god gives life. Actually bringing back a dinosaur - or hoping that someone will - would no more be kufr than baking a cake.


2

No, it doesn't. It equates to fusuq (evil-doing). Narrated `Abdullah: Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (i.e., an evil-doing), and killing him is Kufr (disbelief). Reference: Sahih al-Bukhari 6044 USC-MSA web (English) reference: Vol. 8, Book 73, Hadith 70 And Allah knows best.

This is such an important and profound question. I am not sure if it was answered here before, but I will try my best to answer, and may Allah guide us all. First of all, no, having doubts does not make you kafir (non believer). 1 Usually university life poses a lot of challenge for the thoughts and different arguments about religion and what not. I was ...

Yes, it makes them a hypocrite First of all, no one should have any reason to disrespect the Sahaba(Companions of the Prophet). They are the ones who supported Islam, fought the Mushrikeen, sacrificed their wealth and theirselves for Allah. Allah chose them to be the Companions of the Prophet. Allah said: "Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those ...

Even strict fatawa claim this is not kufr (and it follows it's not shirk either). In fact, IslamWeb directly addresses this topic: A Muslim is not considered an unbeliever just because of watching films that contain matters of Kufr, but this does not mean that it is permissible for a Muslim to watch them ... IslamWeb Nevertheless, they're clear that ...

It is not kufr to think that there are certain forbidden acts that may not draw any harm in this worldly life and that their punishment is delayed until the Hereafter. Allah ﷻ tells us in the Qur'an that He may defer His punishment until a specified time: وَلَوْ يُؤَاخِذُ اللَّهُ النَّاسَ بِمَا كَسَبُوا مَا تَرَكَ عَلَىٰ ظَهْرِهَا مِن دَابَّةٍ وَلَٰكِن ...

Well you should not doubt the religious commitment of any person anyways, as only Allah is allowed to judge people. Nobody has the right to say this is a muslim and this is not a muslim. P.S : Focus on yourself and if you want to embrace someone's way of Islam, well, then think about it and if it really agrees with Islam and Qur'an. Allah will judge you, ...

Yes you are :) Not all sins are blasphemy. By cussing, you've committed a sin (and seems like you regret your actions so make tawbah/repent) but you have not rejected the deen so you're fine, sister :) My suggestion would be to find a better way to release your anger.

TL;DR: It seems awfully strict to consider it disbelief. For it to be disbelief, one would need to be convinced that God's ruling is incorrect, and have an intention of disbelief. 1. Al-Azhar University prepared The Response (pdf, URL), which discusses a fatwa in relation to this topic: A question was asked about the rulings that contradict [the ...
