Shirk

Q:

Asalam walkom I think I have fallen into shirk and I don’t know if I can fast or pray or am I still a Muslim. Basically today a fortune teller had come up to me and said that I was lucky. At first I had no Idea that he was I thought it was someone who was a magician who told you random stuff then he asked my favirote flower and number of brothers which he got correct I should have stopped their but he said a few things about my past which lured me in to carry on listening as he carried on speaking it just started to predict my futer which I didn’t believe but wanted to come true. He also, wnated me to gove him £20 pounds at first I thought no but then I thought it was rude not to give him anything so I have him a pound or so you know like people who do shows on the street. He said he wanted the money so that he to tell me a name of a woman in my family that had ruined my life and still is I told him I ditn have the money and that I’m sorry and walked away. After I have left him I realised what I had done so my question is that I know if you believe you fall into kufur but even though shortly I realised this is haram and Allah knows all and no way he could know this except using the devil as I already know know they work have I committed a big sin?

Waalykum salam 

 
Thank you for your Question. 
 
We can always ask for forgives and hope that Allah will forgive you. 
The real repentance from any Gunah is not to ever go back to the act again. So InshaAllah pls Give yourself a chance and believe that Allah is all knowing and forgiving. 
May Allah help all of us stand strong on our faith in HIM. 
 
Kind regards,
