Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

Practical acts of kufr put one beyond the pale of Islam, such as prostrating to anyone other than Allaah or offering a sacrifice to anyone other than Allaah. This is a practical act of kufr that puts one beyond the pale of Islam. The one who slaughters a sacrifice to an idol or a star or the jinn has committed a practical act of major kufr. Similarly if he prays to them or prostrates to them, he has committed a practical act of major kufr. Similarly, if he reviles Islam or reviles the Messenger or mocks Allaah or the Messenger, this is a practical act of major kufr, according to all Ahl al-Sunnah wa’l-Jamaa’ah. End quote. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
