Going to temples to seek help

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am very concerned about something, please can you help? Are Muslims allowed to go to temples where there are idols in order to seek help? And if one does, then what is the punishment for this action?


A: This is an act of shirk and disbelief.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
