Ruling on calling a person a jew

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net

What is the ruling on the person who said to someone that “She is a Jew Sister” jokingly in the absence of that person not with the intention of calling her Jew or Kafir just jokingly. Is it okay if that person repents to Allah privately only? Because telling her that will result in bad consequences?

Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,

الجواب و بالله التوفيق

This sort of joke should not be made. The person should apologise to the sister and ask for her forgiveness and also seek Allah’s forgiveness.

And Allah Knows Best.
