Selam AleykumRecently, something strange happened to me. I played on my game console and I deleted a game without wanting it.At this moment, I was very angry and insulted by words that are famous in Bosnian to curse.When I cursed, I turned my head to the sky as someone turns it during du’a and then I had a strange feeling as if I wanted to say Allah with that.I did not say Allah you are so and so I did not mention his name but immediately after that I wondered if I had questioned myself rather than cursed Allah or not. And it’s almost strange because I do not remember, rather, that I wanted to have these thoughts about Allah during the curse or rather that they came from Shaytan. A minute after this incident, I started downloading this game again and said to myself in German “Allah ist nicht Schuld”, which means in English something like “Allah is not guilty for that”, then I I started playing with my cousin another game, but I could not concentrate anymore. thought all the time about this incident and rather I committed kufr or not. It went so far that my head started to hurt me and there was nothing that I really knew except this incident. After finishing the game with my cousin, I got up and prayed 2 rakat and prayed to Allah to protect me from the whispers of Shaytan. And after that, he left. My question is: did I commit kufr or not? I read everything on your page and on the page “islam qa” and I know the principle that an Islam can be canceled only if you have entered it. I always think it is the Shaytan who wants to control my mind but then I think I think like that because I do not want to repent. But the thing is that vallahi I am not arrogant. I am really afraid of having really engaged the kufr and not having an excuse before Allah. And my second question is about the future when something similar will happen if I repent directly to Allah or wait for a Sheikh to answer my question?
Perfect praise to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is no other worthy worship than Allah and that Muhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) is his slave and his messenger.
What you have mentioned is only the whispering of the devil, so ignore them and pay no attention to them.
The rule in Takfeer (declaring someone as non-Muslim) is that, in principle, a Muslim remains a Muslim and does not go beyond the bosom of Islam except with certainty.
A statement or act that is likely to mean disbelief and other than disbelief must be interpreted as meaning other than disbelief.
Al-Mulla ‘Ali Qaari said in Sharh Ash-Shifaa’: “Our scholars have said, ‘If we find ninety-nine reasons to accuse a Muslim of Kufr and find a single reason for it maintain in Islam, the Mufti and the judge should act on this reason alone. This is taken from the words of the prophet Sallallahuah’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention): ‘Avoid as much as possible the Hudood (sentences prescribed in the Shareeah) by the Muslims. If you find a way out for a Muslim (to avoid applying Hudood), then free him. It is better for the Imam to make a mistake by forgiving rather than committing an error by punishing. [At-Tirmithi and Al-Haakim] ‘”[End quote]
