Can a person be a disbeliever despite his
saying laa ilaaha ill Allaah?
Can a person commit kufr (disbelief) whilst upon his tongue is laa ilaaha ill Allaah (none has the right to be worshipped in Truth except Allaah)?
A person can indeed become a disbeliever in front of Allaah whilst he says la ilaaha ill Allaah.
And this is just like the hypocrite who said la ilaaha ill Allaah with his tongue and he did not believe with his heart, such as Abdullaah ibn Abee Sulool and the like of him.
And with Allaah is the tawfeeq. And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and his Companions.
