Q: If from a married Muslim couple, either the husband or the wife visits a temple or any other non-Muslim shirk place to seek cure for a certain disease which they do on others. What is the status of their nikaah?
I have seen Muslim men and women enter temples to get cured from chicken pox and I was even advised by an ignorant person to go to a particular temple and say something, but I did not commit that major shirk.
A: As a precaution they should renew their imaan and nikaah.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
