Inviting towards disbelief

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Someone sent me a page telling about the weirdest shows, the description of the show read that: ‘A 2009 Turkish reality show where an imam, a Greek Orthodox priest, a Buddhist monk and a rabbi compete to convert atheists to their respective religion. Anyone who was persuaded to change their religion won a pilgrimage to the spiritual home of their new belief system – so a bit like Take Me Out but with less Fernando’s and more, you know, Mecca.’ Is this description blasphemous? Please tell me so I may report it to cyber crime authorities thank you.


A: To invite towards disbelief is disbelief, and to promote it also is an act of kufr irrespective of the circumstance. Every other religion besides Islam is disbelief.

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