Does Lying About Islam Make Me a Disbeliever?

Answered by Ustadh Salman Younas

Question: Assalam aleykum

If someone gives false informations to someone who asked something about Islam, does that person become a disbeliever? Is my repentance valid?

Answer: wa alaykum assalam

No, this is not disbelief. You have realized that you did something incorrect and need to keep in mind the Quranic verse, “Despair not of the mercy of God for verily God forgives all sins.” (39:53) You should, therefore, seek God’s forgiveness for your error and clarify to the individual whom you provided incorrect information that you made a mistake.
