Mocking Islamic teachings

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: A boys birthday was on December 26 and I said to him that it was better if it was on new year.

Now my question is that I supported new year and I supported something haram (by saying that it was better if it was on new years day). I rejected Allah’s rule and supported something haram.

1. Does it affect me as a Muslim? If yes what to do?

A boy said to me that celebrating birthdays is haram and I said that celebrating new year is also haram. Then I said that haram cancelled a haram as we do in maths where a numerator and denominator cancel eachother. Then I laughed and the the boy laughed too.

My question is that I made fun of Islamic rules by cancelling the haram of it in a funny way. I read in a place that making fun of Islam leads to a person becoming a kafir. Is it right? and does it have any affect on mmy imaan?


A: You are in Islam, but be very careful of making these types of utterances. As a precaution make some istighfaar.

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