Assalam Alaikum, I am very worried that I have committed kufr and please help me and clarify. Namely, I started to learn Arabic little by little, because I have a lot of problems with my pronunciation and I want to know what I am saying when I recite the Surah. My friends (among whom there are also Arabs) often make fun of me when I repeat the words "out of the blue". It doesn't bother me and I often say something on purpose to make them laugh. However, tonight, while I was fooling around like that, I looked at my friend for a moment and said: "Qul ya ejuhel kafirun", knowing (consciously or subconsciously) that there was a possibility that they would laugh because it was out of the blue. They laughed and it immediately occurred to me that I might have committed kufr. I did not intend to make fun of the words of Allah Almighty, but I am afraid that there is an element of "joking" in it. I never said it with the intention of infidelity, but I knew they might laugh. I really don't know why I said that. I feel very guilty. I became very depressed and went home, took a bath and said the shahada again. After that I read that one must take a bath after the shahada. I didn't do that, because I didn't want my family to get suspicious and because some scholars say that it is not mandatory. I started my fast, made wudu and prayed fajr. I am very worried: did I commit Kufr in the first place? If yes, have I done the right thing and is my fasting and Salah okay now? May Allah reward you for your work.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب حامداومصليا

You have not committed any Kufr. Your Salah and Sawm are valid.

And Allah knows best
