Making Fun of a Given Language Is Not Kufr
Fatwa No: 376603

Question

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته 1. is it isihzaa of the ayaat of Allah teala to make jokes about a language? For example you make fun of how boring the language is without really meaning it you "just" do it as a joke? Is this considered kufr because i have in mind that languages are one the ayaat of Allah teala and making istihzaa of the ayaat of Allah is according to surah al-tawba 65-66 kufr?2. Am i allowed to consume drinks like soft drinks that were originally bought for a bid'ah celebration but they were not fully consumed at that occasion so some bottles of soft drinks or juice etc. were left. Is it allowed to consume the remained bottles of the drinks?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

It is clear that your questions stem from whispers.

What you mentioned in your first question is not at all Kufr (disbelief). Also, languages vary in terms of fluency, the various combinations (structures), easiness, and so on. This is one of the signs of Allah.

As for your second question, there is no harm in using the remaining items; rather, not using them is considered a waste of money, which is forbidden.

Allah knows best.
