Question: Assalam ‘aleykum,
(1) During my adolescence I became obsessed with the Twilight books. As a result I said, as a joke, ” I have converted to Cullenism,” and, “I won’t die before I see this movie”. Have I committed disbelief?
(2) In the past, I have said that I don’t like beards. Have I committed disbelief?
I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.
(1) No, this is not disbelief (kufr). [See these related answers.]
(2) No. Please see the link at (1).
