kufr and wiswas


Is saying bismillah before sin kufr? I have wiswas and depressed. Is it kufr to say bismillah before eating if you going to overeat? kufr to say bismillah before TV or watching movie? Bismillah before going out if you don’t lower gaze? B4 talk with fiancé?


As-Salamu ‘Alaikum,

Uttering Bismillah before committing a sin is considered a sin that requires repentance. The same goes for saying Al-Hamdu Lillah after committing a sin. If this is done out of mockery, it may take the one out of the fold of Islam. May Allah protect us from that.
