Insulting the Ambiya, Malaaikah and the Sahaabah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. I have heard that if a person insults the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) he becomes a kafir. Will a person become a kafir if he insults other Prophets?

2. Will a person become a kafir if he insults the Sahaabah or the angels?



1. If one insults any Nabi, then one will lose his Imaan.

2. Insulting and hating the angels will also cause one to lose his Imaan. If one insults all the Sahaaba, hates them and does not believe that they were on guidance, then one will come out of the fold of Islam.

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