Calling oneself a kaafir

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I want to ask, I’m a Muslim wife and in the state of anger I committed a sin…Me and my husband used to fight everyday in the start of our marriage. One day I got frustrated and in the state of extrme anger I said why Allah did this to me… I’m angry with Allah… and from now I’m not a Muslim… I’m kafir etc… but I was very angry at that moment but after that I realised how could I do this… I’m a true Muslim and perform salaah 5 times a day… I made taubah to Allah for that sin committed in anger and promised him not to do it again… Kindly let me know if this will affect my marriage.


A: This statement caused you to come out of the fold of Islam. You should sincerely repent to Allah Ta’ala for this major sin and firm resolve that you will never ever repeat this in the future. You should also renew your nikaah.

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