Taxi driver getting upset due to missing a pick up

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My husband is a taxi driver so he has a phone which the company gave him. When he turns on the phone, a job will come and then he goes to pick up the passengers.

Today he was praying magrib salaah and I was in the bathroom. I heard his work phone ringing. I came out of the bathroom straight away and tried to find the phone. Finally I found the phone and the job was rejected because nobody picked up the phone in time. After salaam my husband saw his job fone and then he told me that the job was cancelled. Then he said (idhar namaze per lo job kaya kerni ha saray kaam baraaber chahiya matlab wo mujhe suna rahe the because ma un ko aksar kehti hu namaaz parne ko un ho ne mujhe kaha ke phir mujhe kaha khair tumhara iss sa koi lana daina nahi ya tumhara iss sa koi talluq nahi he ju wo keh rahe the)


A: It is difficult to say that he had uttered a word of kufr, though it is quite dangerous. He should therefore make taubah and be more cautious for the future.

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