Watching cartoons that could risk one's imaan

Q: In the past, if a person watched videos of a cartoon called "The Simpsons" and the videos predicted the future and perhaps he was not sure if he ever believed them but he has an idea that at one point he rejected that. At one point he did think about the illuminati and devil worship and devils communicating with them. The person feared falling into Kufr, so is it Kufr?

A: If these cartoons had anything of kufr in it, then watching them will be risking one's imaan. Entertaining oneself with kufr is also an act of kufr. He should make sincere taubah for committing all these major sins and make a firm resolve that he will not repeat these sins in the future. He should also recite the kalimah tayyibah in abundance.

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