Blasphemous Movies And Characters

Question ID: 17902

Assalam o Alaikum,

1. Many years ago I saw this comedy movie by the name of Bruce Almighty where the main actor gets divine powers astaghfirullah. I do not remember if I watched it out of interest by downloading it, or if I watched it as it was on TV. I watched this movie as I would watch any other movie meaning that I never had or have believed anything the movie suggested and it was just a form of entertainment. Since it was a comedy, I may have enjoyed it as well.

Did I commit blasphemy or kufr by watching this movie even though shirk, kufr or disrespect was not intended at all? I do not remember if I was married when I watched the movie. If this was kufr do I have to repeat nikah?

2. There is a movie by the name of avengers. Avengers has a group of ‘super heroes’ that fight crime. One of the super heroes is called Thor. I am copying Thor’s description from Wikipedia “Thor is a fictional superhero that appears in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character, based on the Norse mythological deity of the same name, is the Asgardian god of thunder and possesses the enchanted hammer Mjolnir, which grants him the ability of flight and weather manipulation amongst his other superhuman attributes.”

I bought and wore a Tshirt that had Thor on it. The T shirt also had text which read “Son of Odin” where Odin was Thor’s father also a deity in the mythology.

I bought this and a captain America (another ‘superhero’) Tshirt purely because they were comic book characters and of this movie and not because I (God Forbid) believe Thor to be a deity even though I knew that he was based on a diety. When this realization came to me, I asked Allah for forgiveness and threw away the shirt.

I read somewhere that wearing a cross or other religious symbolism makes one a kaafir even if the intent was not there. Did wearing this shirt result in shirk even though none was intended? If this was shirk do I have to repeat nikah?

JazakAllah for your time & answer
