Q: I played very good football. My friend told me “nice Ronaldo”. I smiled at him, thinking and accepting that I am Ronaldo and becoming happy about it. Ronaldo is a Christian footballer. Did I commit kufr by thinking and becoming happy that someone called me a Christian (by calling me Ronaldo)?
A: This does not constitute kufr.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
