My friend scared me that it is chances that you has been out from the circle of islam .Now may be you are infidel (my friend told me why you said in your heart that i will be infidel if fail to fullfill the promise)

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

You are still a Muslim, praise be to Allah, and you do not go out of the fold of Islam just because of the aforementioned whispers.

Therefore, repel these whispers and illusions and do not give in to them. Do not talk to yourself in this manner again because it is not appropriate for a Muslim to say this.

You should know that a person who says such a thing does not become a non-Muslim but he commits a very forbidden matter.

Allah Knows best.
