Taking the name of Allah at the time of adultery

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: This question is very important. In fact, almost all committing this sin face this, but do not think about it and do not ask about it. Will this be a kufr to watch pornography and masturbate, in which actors pronounce the name of God during adultery and/or they utter phrases that offend God, during adultery? Will this be contentment with unbelief and with an insult to God, if muslim does not agree with these words and actions in the heart?


A: Obviously to use offensive names against Allah Ta`ala is an act of kufr, and adultery is not a time to take the name of Allah. If the name of Allah is taken to show that this is legal then this will be kufr.

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