Praying in a Church

Praying in a Church

Q. Is it an act of kufr to pray for the kuffaar in their church? What if this is done publicly?
A. Praying for kuffaar in a church, praying in front, below, behind and in the midst of kufr crosses, praying in an inter-faith gathering are all acts of kufr. Such a person has left the fold of Islam and his nikaah has terminated. He will have to incumbently concede his grave error and renew publicly his Imaan in view of his acts of kufr having been perpetrated flagrantly.
