I fear I might have committed kufr

This post has 880 views.


As part of my job I carry out health & safety inspections of various premises.  Recently, I had to carry out an inspection of a sikh temple.  They offered us food and I refused.  As a matter of courtesy I had a cup of coffee.  After my colleague had finished his meal, they brought in a jug of water to wash our hands.  Again I said I was ok but they insisted saying that they preferred if I did wash my hands using the water.  Reluctantly, I washed my hands.  Now I fear I might have committed kufr.  Would you please advise


Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

Your acts of drinking coffee and washing hands do no constitute kufr
