Islam Question and Answer – He got angry and cursed the pen and paper

 

 

He got
angry and cursed the pen and paper
A man was writing on a piece of paper, and whilst he was writing he made a mistake with some of the words. He got very upset, and
because he was so angry he cursed the pen and paper [the Arabic wording states that he “cursed the religion and the heaven of the pen and paper” – Translator]].
Is cursing [the religion and the heaven of] the pen or paper or rock or tree or chair or
whatever considered to be Kufr ?

 

Praise be to Allaah.

Undoubtedly this kind of cursing is haraam. Even if we
say that the pen and paper have no religion in the sense of doing acts of worship,
nevertheless the religion is one, and it is Allaah Who has subjugated these pens and other
tools and made it easy for us to use them, so there is the fear that this cursing may be
referred back to Allaah. So this person has to repent and seek forgiveness, and not do
anything like this again.
