See title. If a person has repented, multiple times, but still has statements of kufr online from long ago which he didn’t take offline yet, is he a disbeliever in Islam?


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

Whilst a person will not become a disbeliever because of his blasphemous  statements which he wrote whilst still not a Muslim, it will be better to remove those statements.

A brief search via google and on forums which you wrote will be sufficient. If you can delete those posts, then you should delete them. Otherwise, atleast write a retraction.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best
