Title: If a person says Madῑnah's curd is sour will he become a kāfir or a fāsiq?


AsSalamu alaikum 

If a person says that madinah's curd is sour will he become a kafir or a faasiq ? What if his intention is not to demean the prophet's city ?


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

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

The individual who makes such a statement in reference will not be considered a kāfir nor a fāsiq.[1] However, when making any statements about Madina Shareef and related issues, one should be extremely careful even if one has a good intention.


And Allah Taālā Knows Best

وعن الثاني رحمه الله أنه قال عند الخليفة كان عليه السلام يحب الدباء فقال رجل من الجلساء أنا لا أحبه فقال الإمام الثاني رحمه الله هاتوا بالنطع والسيف فتاب الرجل فتركه الإمام وهذا محمول على أنه قاله على سبيل الإستخفاف
