What Are the Things That Nullify Someone’s Islam?

Answered by Ustadh Farid Dingle

Question: What are the things that nullify someone’s Islam?

Answer: Dear questioner,

Thank you for your valued answer.

No one leaves Islam except by willingly and actively rejecting Islam. Imam al Tahawi tells us, ‘And nothing takes a slave out of faith except rejecting that which brought him into it.’ (Al Aqida al Tahawiyya)

No sin takes one out of Islam. (Al Aqida al Tahawiyya)

Shahada Online

Answer by Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan

Question: I converted to Islam online. Do I need to proclaim my shahada again with an Imam in a mosque?

Answer: Wa Alaykum al-Salam

Shukran for writing to us.

The testimony of faith recited by yourself through an online facility is valid and we welcome you the Religion Islam. You are now our brother/sister and as such we are obliged to support and assist each other.

While it is not incumbent upon you to “retake” the shahadah with an Imam in your locality, it is undoubtedly desired. It is necessary for you to attach yourself to a Muslim community and visiting and introducing yourself to one of the leaders of that community will prove to be beneficial. I would also like to advise you to take up one of the introductory courses on offer here at SeekersGuidance.

May Allah bless you and accept from us all, Amin.
