Entering the musjid in the state of janaabat

Q: If I am in a state of janaabat and I say bismillah before entering the masjid, is it kufr because I said bismillah before doing something haram (entering the masjid in the state of janaabat)?

A: It is not kufr. However, you should make tawbah for entering the musjid in the state of janaabat.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
