Have I been a Kafir until now?

AoA

I'm a 19 year old female and have never been taught or told to read namaz until recently. I finished the quran twice, assosiated duas into my everyday life (like before eating, entering the bathroom, going to sleep) and considered myself a muslim, but someone told me one who doesn't pray isnt a muslim, I know but now I am sad and afraid that all my love for Allah, my effort, my hardships haven't counted up until now. I am heart broken to know that, can someone please advise me if I will be punished for this all and not rewarded one bit? Thank you.

  1. The one who is a kafir is the one who knows that salat (namaz) is a requirement and deliberately abandons it, or even denies that it is an obligation. In your case, you were merely uneducated. So you were not a kafir, but you were a weak Muslim. I would say, don't worry too much about the mistakes or inadequacies of the past. The past is whatever it is. You can't change it. But now that you know better, you can do better, Insha'Allah.

    Fortunately you are still young, so you still have plenty of time - Insha'Allah - to make up for past mistakes by doing your salat, performing other 'ibadah, and generally striving to follow the ways of Islam.

    Focus on the present moment, and I think you will do well.

  2. The word "Kafir" simply means unbeliever and the greatest Kufr is to deny the oneness off Allah and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as the last messenger of Allah.
    As for would Allah punish you for not saying your prayers daily, about that only Allah knows best.
    Be humble before Allah.
    Allah is all merciful and kind.
    Be good to all living and respect the mankind equally.

  3. My sister that was the devil in disguise....No one can play God....Allah is the most mercifull. ...so pray and love 4 the sake of Allah......make dua and astagfirullah and stick to the quran and connect with the local mosque.......get involve with sisters ,community and ther good works

  4. ALLAH CREATED THIS WORLD AS TEST...AND YOU WILL BE TESTED RIGHT UPTO YOUR LAST BREATH.....IT IS NEVER LATE TO TURN TO ALLAH.....REGARDLESS OF A PERSON'S PAST LIFE OR SINS BECAUSE WE JUST MAKE INTENTION NOT TO DO IT AGAIN LEARNING FROM OUR MISTAKES AND MAKE TAUBA.....THIS IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS
