ou know if you committed Kufr unknowingly or told people to do so, are you a Kafir if you don't tell them but repent? Like the repentance of the innovator?
As salaamu alaikum, I apologise for the very late response.
Allaahu a3lam, we are held to account based on what we know, this matter should be referred back to the people of knowledge and the scholars. If you are wanting naseeha, please ask our brothers such as Abu Hakeem Bilal Davis or Abu Idrees Muhammad, or Abu Iyad Amjad Rafiq.
Salaam I want to ask a question what if a person is a sincere practising person but the people do not like him and constantly put this person down is Allah going to be displeased because he is not loved amongst the people?
Wa alaikumu salaam, I apologise to all for the delayed response.
When it comes to Allaah’s love and hate we refer back to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhee wa salem). Allaah is most Just and Allaah will not unjustly be displeased with a person because the people dislike or are displease with the individual. Allaah looks to the circumstances, the reasons and the causes. Ibn Al-Qayyim (rahimahullah) said regarding this matter:
There are four kinds of love, which we must differentiate between, and those who go astray do so because they do not make this distinction. The first of them is love of Allah, but this alone is not sufficient to save a person from the punishment of Allah and to earn him His reward. The Mushrikeen (idolaters), worshippers of the cross, Jews and others all love Allah.
The second is love of that which Allah loves. This is what brings a person into Islam and out of disbelief. The most beloved of people to Allah is the one who is most correct and most devoted in this kind of love.
The third kind is love for the sake of Allah, which is one of the essentials of loving that which Allah loves. A person’s love of that which Allah loves cannot be complete until he also loves for the sake of Allah. The fourth is love for something alongside Allah, and this love has to do with shirk (paganism). Everyone who loves things alongside Allah but not for the sake of Allah has taken that thing as a rival to Allah. This is the love of the Mushrikeen (pagan).
There remains a fifth kind of love which has nothing to do with our topic; this is the natural love which is a person’s inclination towards that which suits his nature, such as the love of a thirsty person for water or of a hungry person for food, or the love of sleep, or of one’s wife and children. There is nothing wrong with this unless it distracts a person from remembering Allah and keeps him from loving Him. Allah says (interpretation of the meanings):
“O you who believe! Let not your properties or your children divert you from the remembrance of Allah” [63:9]
“Men whom neither trade nor sale (business) diverts from the remembrance of Allah” [24:37]
(Al-Jawaab al-Kaafi, 1/134)
