Q: Does saying words like ‘I knew this would happen’ or ‘they knew she would say that’ considered kufr? What about if the one who says this says it just as a prediction, and does not intend to mean that they have knowledge of the unseen?
A: This is not kufr. In other words, he imagined that this could be said or done.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
