salaah without wudhu

Question ID: 31381

Assalamu Alaykum,
Before Maghrib Salah, my wife said to me, you can park in one corner and go to the masjid to read Salah. I will wait in the car.
I had no intention of performing Salah, because I was totally unsure whether my hands were paak or not, and I knew that by the time I finished wudhu, Salah would be over. Also, I thought, what’s the point of praying because, once I get back in the car and I touch the steering wheel, my hands will probably become impure again because the steering wheel had become impure because of having touched it with impure hands.Hence I sat on the stairs, whilst jamat took place downstairs.After jamat finished, I saw a friend of mine come up the stairs to perform his Sunnah.I panicked and said Allahu Akbar and began to pretend performing Salah. Initially I began reciting but knowing I did not have wudhu, ?I subsequently just went through the motions of Salah, moving my lips.My intention was not to mock Salah. In fact, I was caught between the fear of kufr and thinking I should not continue faking the performance of Salah.However I continued and went through the motions of Salah right to the end.
Would this be kufr?

This is very close to Kufr. You should have explained the true position of the steering wheel to your wife.
