Bowing Down to Statue etc.is this Shirk?

Aslamualikam

I pray you are well.

If a Muslim thinks to himself that believing in Allah and at the same time bowing down to a statue or something else, is shirk and not kufr.
Does this thinking result in kufr if the Muslim has no intention of kufr?

Jazakallah

  1. This is a major sin. This is an open act of Shirk.
    The doer must repent immediately. Slight movement to belief will result in that person leaving Islaam.
