Mocking someone’s beard

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


1. I have one uncle whose beard has only few hairs. I had made fun of his beard saying that his beard has few strands of thread… I was actually making fun of his beard, not the sunnah… Also I did not know at that time that we should not make fun of beard… Did I do kufr? If yes, what should I do?

2. Some people call him chinese… did they also do kufr? 



1. Make taubah and ask him for forgiveness as well.

2. They should refrain from this and make taubah.

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