Q: Is it kufr to backbite a Muslim to a non Muslim? Also is it kufr to complaint against a Muslim to a non Muslim if he has harmed you for the purpose of correcting him so that he doesn’t do the same mistake again?
No. Why should you refer your problems to a non-Muslim and bring about the disgrace of a muslim in the presence of a kaafir.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
