Benefit: Regarding Someone Who Knowingly Committed an Act That Nullified His Islām in Private

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

QUESTION: Regarding someone who knowingly committed an act that nullified his Islām in private, does he consider himself to have left the religion, and that he needs to utter the testimony of faith again (i.e. retake his shahādah)?  And what about the prayers and fasting that he missed up until he retook his shahādah - does he make them up or not? 

ANSWER: (by Shaykh Muḥammad ʿUmar Bāzmūl, Professor of Higher Studies at Umm al-Qurá University in Makkah):

بسم الله 
الذي وقع في ناقض مع القدرة وعدم المانع فإنه يكفر، وعليه أن يجدد إسلامه والعبادات التي مرت عليه أثناء ذلك لا يلزمه القضاء فيها، والله اعلم.
أخوكم محمد بازمول
 

In the Name of Allāh
 
Anyone who fell into an act of apostasy, willingly and without excuse, has left Islām.  He must renew his Islām (by uttering the shahādah).  The acts of worship he missed up until this time do not have to be made up, and Allāh knows best.
 
Your brother,
Muḥammad Bāzmūl

Fear of Shirk

  Abū  ͑Abdillāh Ḥasan al-Ṣumāli

Our noble brother Abū  ͑Abdillāh Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī (hafiẓahullāh) gives an excellent short, yet comprehensive reminder regarding the importance of studying tawḥīd, and the need for its dissemination to the people in general due to the widespread ignorance concerning what is obligated upon the Muslim with regards to singling out Allāh alone in worship, upon the correct understanding of the meaning of Lā ilāha illā Allāh and its conditions, and the importance of knowing and abandoning shirk and its many forms and manifestations.

Importance of Knowing the Meaning of: Muḥammad Is the Messenger of Allāh

  Abū ʿAbdillāh Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī

Abū ʿAbdillāh Ḥasan al-Ṣumālī (hafiẓahullāh) explains the importance of knowing the meaning of Muḥammad is the Messenger of Allāh.  If we want to be upon the methodology of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa ṣallam) and enter into Paradise; if we want to be upon the Daʿwah Salafīyyah and not deviate from it; if we want to firmly hold onto the rope of Allāh; then we need to stick to the Sunnah of the Prophet (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-ṣallam) and understand what it means when we say, "Muḥammad is the Messenger of Allāh."
