Q841: I got excited while reciting Quran & read a word loudly. Is it kufr?

Assalamu Alaykum,

Whilst reciting Qur’an I came to the words: “Wu tookrijool mayyitu minul huy.”

When I came to the word “huy” in my excitement I mockingly exaggerated the word. Immediately I made tauba. It all happened very quick.

Now I am fearful of kufr & can’t think straight.

Would this be kufr & invalidate nikah?

You were reciting the Quran, you were not committing any sin at the time! So it seems that shaytaan didn’t like it and he was attempting to disturb you by those thoughts. Don’t over worry.

Kufr is when something is done with the intention of Kufr. If something happens by mistake, then it is hoped that Allah Ta’ala will pardon.

Rasulullah Salla Allahu Alayhi Wa Sallam has said, “Mistakes and forgetfulness have been overlooked (by Allah) from my ummah, along with those actions which are forced upon them”.
