Are these statements kufr, do I need to redo nikah?

Assalamu alaykum moulana
Hope you are well

I recently went for umrah, and since then started learning more about islam. Before this I was very haphazard about islam, and wasn't particularly concerned with what sins I'm doing, not wearing hijab etc, however I am now trying and have implemented changes.



I have uttered a few statements which I am uncertain about if any of them/which of these are kufr statements:

1. When I went for umrah I really tried my best to exert myself, however I would get tired and irritable with people there pushing and shoving, and find it difficult to be rushing to masjid five times a day, the heat etc, and I expressed my annoyance by saying things like, "when we come for hajj, we should only come for hajj for 2 weeks to avoid the difficulties encountered" or "I just want to go home after umrah" when we did not have a hotel to stay in as the accommodation got cancelled, or "I don't even know if Allah will accept my umrah as I have been so impatient and shouted at people".

2. I do not recall the exact conversation, but I mentioned to somebody that I would not disown/cut off my child should he/she be conducting homosexual actions. I did not however say the action is halal. I do not even have children, and I now realise I should not have said this, as it is a haraam act.

2. I said "Jesus" when someone made me angry. I did not intent it as a belief of any sort, it came out by mistake, as they do in movies. I also realise this is incorrect.

3. I read online Q&A about a few fatwa-for eg, some saying woman cannot attend Salah at a masjid, or that it is preferable for woman who are menstruating to make wudhu and sit on their musallah at Salah times, or that woman cannot leave the house for a walk/exercise. I was finding it difficult to follow all these rules at once, especially since I was not properly practicing islam before, and blurted out something like "but then our lives will be so boring and stupid", referring to if we have to follow these strict guidelines from these strict ulema. I did not mean that Islam is "boring and stupid", but that these ulema are making it harder.

I know this shouldn't have been said either as the ulema are knowledgable and I am the one who is at fault.

4. Does saying a certain action is difficult constitute kufr, for example, saying "if a woman finds wearing hijab difficult, and those who do not wear it have it easier" - I uttered this statement as quoted, I did not say I find it difficult, just that a woman might find it difficult. The context of this statement was in the same conversation as the one above. I was confiding in my husband that I am trying to change and these are my difficulties encountered.

5. I was watching a YouTube video wherein a lady mentioned something about 'tears of the gods' and I mockingly said, "im not sure why her gods are crying", but I immediately said after that, Astaghfirullah we only have one and the same God, Allah. I was meaning she has a false belief/false gods when I said that initial statement.

6. Somebody was referring to a new walled city they are building in Saudi Arabia, and I said "is yajooj and majooj there", as a joke, I did not believe they are, but it was more like to say that Saudi is becoming so westernised that so many evil things are prevalent there (outside of Makkah and Medina).

7. When I used to listen to music, I once said the lyrics of an Indian song by mistake, which translated to "just like Eid on the day of holi" or something like that, however I did not mean it and it was simply said by mistake.
8. I read a news article wherein children in western countries are allowed to medically transition into another gender from the time they are kids. To this, I said to my husband, "If ever, they should at least not allow it for children/wait until they are 18". What I meant is not to say its allowed or right, but that its even worse if a child is being allowed such irreversible changes and haraam, as in, the western society should at the very least protect children from this.

I apologise for the long email, and if this sounds so terrible. I realise none of these statements should have been uttered, and I am consumed by guilt. Since I have decided I want to change my ways, I do not know what is happening, I feel like I keep saying the wrong things and making mistakes.

I have repeated my shahaadah, do I need to repeat my nikah? I do not want to make a mockery of my marriage either, as I fear I will make mistakes again in future, and then how many times will I keep saying to repeat my nikah. However if the above statements are that of Kufr, then please let me know if its necessary for me to repeat my nikah.

JazakAllah

Kufr

Assalamualikum! I am away from my house for past two months due to my brother serious medical condition. My husband was showing me my house over video call and i said to him in urdu it does not seem like my house. Upon which he replies ( Indeed everything belongs to Allah and will return back to him ) jokingly( this sentence people says when someone dies ). I immediately said in Urdu ( kya fazool baat kar rahay ho ) meaning why are you talking rubbish? Immediately after that i realized what did i say? God forbid I did not say rubbish to that sentence which my husband said, i mean by rubbish that he used this term at inappropriate time. My intention was not kufr neither I was insulting my Religion. I am so worried about my Imaan. Please guide me what should i do in this case?

Blasphemy

I am a unmarried man in his 30"s and an addict to pornography / masturbation of 15/20 years. I have tried numerous of times to quit this evil deed, unfortunately my nafs and shaytaan has not allowed me to. But one day very soon I will, In-Sha-Allah.

One day whilst browsing this evil addiction of mine, I found myself stumbling across blasphemous video content, in that moment I found myself strangely aroused by it, until I ejaculated and all of the guilt came rushing to me. I promised myself I wouldn't ever consume this type ever again. But shaytaan had other plans, and every once in a while I would take a sneak peak or be aroused by the idea / thought of it. I resolved myself once more and made touba and I never consumed it again, I then went umrah and tried to make a positive change in my life, I went 2 months without pornography etc started to pray and not miss salah and I was happy, until I relapsed. And the cycle started again. (I never consumed blasphemous content after the relapse, only the regular evil)

Recently, I have started to doubt my belief, thoughts such as "how can such a disgusting person like you even be Muslim when you have such evil perverted thoughts involving religion, how can you expect Allah to forgive you when you insulted him and his deen, this is why your touba and umrah and duas wasnt accepted" this guilty thinking and self loathing has stopped me from praying, lowered my imaan so much that sometimes I don't even think I'm Muslim anymore. I am genuinely lost and misguided. Can Allah even forgive such a grave sinner as myself? Is there hope? What do I do to help myself get out of this hole?

How Allah looks

I have faith in Allah and thanks to Allah who born me in Muslims.
I know and have faith that we cant imagine Allah because this is something beyond humans thinking and imaginary. But that's human nature that whenever human mind thinks about everything mind develope an imaginary or something related to that thing so what I have to imagine whenever I think about Allah. Please answer this question or tell me solution that how I overcome this

Swearing/shirk

I wanted to know if saying “Oh man” or “Oh dude” is considered a form of swearing or shirk. I’m hesitant because when calling upon Allah someone could say “Oh Allah”

Did I sin

is one sinning if one knows the ruling, such as knowing a certain act is a sin but then does the certain act while forgetting that it is a sin and then realises and stops.

Did I commit shirk?

I had not slept the night and only got about 30 minutes before fajr. My mind was clouded with sleepiness as I was doing dhikr,eveytime I uttered the part "None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone" I got thoughts of different things such as Shaitan, dajjal and negative thoughts ( don't know how to describe them).I read the dua Amantu-billahi wa rasulihi, read auoothubillahi, and thought of Allah's names while reading the meaning. I want to believe they are intrusive thoughts but I fear I have committed major shirk as if I was associating and it's disturbing me greatly! I have said the shahada a lot of times. Please advise.

Is this waswasah

In the past I did acts of shirk and kufr.Then this year I decided to learn more about islam and aqidah. I found out that some of my actions lead to kufr and shirk. I am so angry at myself and despaired. I made tauba but I am so scared that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala does not forgive me. I have this feeling that I never would be forgiven. is this only waswasah or am I a hopeless case?

Soul in the grave who did not receive proper message

Assalamu Alaikum,

I wanted to know what happens to a non-muslim in the grave if they are of the ones who did not receive the message of Islam properly. Are they blessed or tormented in the grave? Do they have a garden in paradise or a ditch from the hellfire?

Am I committing shirk?

Assalamu Alaikum,
I have an OCD and I get intrusive thoughts usually due to this. While browsing the net, I came across an article which said that if one commits a sexual activity with a specific intention to get something they desire and if they think about that during the activity (especially the climax), they will get what they desired. For example, if one wants wealth and has sex for that and imagines wealth at climax, he'll get wealth. They call this sex magic and it works. I know this is a sin and maybe shirk. Now I had sex and while that, my fearful thoughts came up before the sex, during it, and at climax,though I did not want them. Have I done the so-called sex magic and have I done shirk for this?

Hadith

Assalamualalykum
I am a hanfi follower and my question is about 3 similar hadiths with sperate narratives:
First one is
"Indeed there will be a Mahdi who comes in my Ummah (ruling) living for five, or seven, or nine."- Zaid was the one in doubt- He said: "We said: What is that?" He said: "Years." He said: "A man will come to him and say: O Mahdi! 'Give to me, give to me! So he will fill in his garment whatever he is able to carry.'"
Jami` at-Tirmidhi 2232
"The Mahdi will be among my nation. If he lives for a short period, it will be seven, and if he lives for a long period, it will be nine, during which my nation will enjoy a time of ease such as it has never enjoyed. The land will bring forth its yield and will not hold back anything, and wealth at that time will be piled up. A man will stand up and say: 'O Mahdi, give me!' He will say: 'Take.'"
Sunan ibn majah 4039
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: The Mahdi will be of my stock, and will have a broad forehead a prominent nose. He will fill the earth will equity and justice as it was filled with oppression and tyranny, and he will rule for seven years.
Sunan Abi Dawud 4285
So i just wanted to know please what is the correct amount of years that the mahdi will rule for according to scholars since 7 years are mentioned also 9 and 5.

Evil thoughts

Assalaamu alaykum.
I am in dire need of advice, I am trying to keep my question brief but I ask of you please do advise me as much as possible as the problem which I go on to discuss has really been affecting me considerably, to the point where it is even affecting my 'ibadah.

I have been getting terrible thoughts in my mind. Thoughts which I have no control over and they are causing me such grief and upset and I fear Allah is very displeased with me. The more good I try to do in my deen, the more severe the thougts become.. I researched about this and saw many answers that these may be waswas from shaytaan but I also know that I have quite an obsessive compulsive mind so my mind will think of a topic so hard without my will! My teacher was speaking of shirk and the punishment and a lesson and it scared me so much I could not control my mind from stop thinking about it and now it is like shaytaan is forcing me to think bad shirk thougts and they are hurting and upsetting me ever so much & I fear Allah may take it that I am actually commiting shirk! La hawla wala quwatta illah billah. If the thoughts are because of my own obsessive mind, will Allah take these thoughts as they are from myself as though I have willing thought tor committed these dreadful things? I am so scared that Allah has that it has seriosuly affected my imaan and I am so anxious about this that it is making the thoughts come even more..

When I am in salah horrible shirk thoughts come to my mind which I cannot control and it is so upsetting. I believe in Allah & my deen 100% and so I am so angered over these thoughts and scared. Will Allah accept that, whether these thoughts are from shaytaan or because I have an obsessive compulsive mind, that I do not mean them and cannot control them so much? Have I commited something awful? Please help me brothers, please.

Did I do kufr?

Assalaamu alaykum.. I am in a crisis and I beg of my brothers inislam/respected brothers to please help me
I will try to keep my question as brief as possible. May Allah reward you all for your help.

I recently submitted a question regarding some terrible thoughts I had been having but I now need to speak of something so stupid which I did but by Allah I did not intend it as kufr!!

I only became a muslim last year and I have whole faith in Allah as my Lord and islam as my deen.

I did something so awful and I only realised afterwards I may have done something wrong.. I am very ashamed to write this out but please do not judge or wonder why I made the stupid joke..

I was messing around and joking with my brother and I was impersonating a male muslim character and at some point (still in character) I said ''I am a buddhist'' I immediately after thought this was a stupid joke and I am very much sorry over making it. I did not intend it as kufr from myself and did not realise at the time I was wrong ASTAGHFIRULLAH. I feel so upset as I type this as I saw your answer on another question here saying that even if somebody jokes around with statements it is regarded as kufr.. Now what can I do? I felt so content after accepting islam and now have I became a kafir again??? Am I out of Allah ta'ala's mercy?? I did not mean to do this and I am so grieved over this wallahi. It is affecting my life, I cannot focus on my deen properly and I am worried about my actions and thoughts all the time now. I love Allah so much and there I want nothing more than nearness to Him, His pleasure and a home with Him in jannah. These days I cannot feel close to Allah because I am so worried over what I did joking and because of bad thoughts entering my mind.

Please tell me what should I do now? Am I a kafir? I did not intend the joke as kufr at all and it is only after researching that I have really understood the full seriousness over my stupid words.. I did not mean them wallahi.

Please reply soon, I am so worried that I may be outside of Allah's mercy now but He is so beloved to me and now I may not even receive His mercy. I cannot cope with this.

Duas requested please
