Peace be upon you my brothers and sisters in Islam,

Let me go straight to the point.


please i need your help and guidance because i am loosing my faith day by day, i begin to see more reality in science than religion. Some times it will seems to me like i am just wasting my time over religion, i don't know whether it is Satan that is trying to confuse me, but every day i will be having unnecessary thought.




Note: i have positive and negative side of me.

Positive;

I don't skip my five daily prayers, and i always pray 3-4 out of the 5 in congregation, I hardly miss juma'at congregational prayer, i don't "fornicate" in any way, i always give out saddaqa to the needy, i neither drink nor smoke.


Negative side of me:


I don't recite the Quran often in fact since after Ramadan i rarely lay my hands on the quran, i don't usually fast except during Ramadan, clubbing is now part of me, i rarely pray subhi prayer in congregation.


But the problem is whenever i pray the immann is not there,
i hardly feel the connection between me and my God, please help my faith is just dropping on daily basis.




My dad is so westernized that he doesn't care about religion, while my mom is from a well known religious family in her home state. I think i took after my dad.










Please i need help, is just like i am fast becoming an Atheist.

WA Alaykumus salaam.
Brother, thank Allah for making you realise the decrease in ur iman. My advice is that you correct the negative part of you coz all that you said once happened to me. Please be aware that most Muslim's do neglect listening to Islamic lectures and attending Islamic gatherings. I advice you to get series of Good Islamic lectures from Good Scholars of Islam and listen to them often. And beware of some friends.

Brother no religion like islam

wa alaikumus salam

Brother thank Allah u were able to understand ur problems, I have some advice to give you

1) You have to start listening to preaches by scholars especially those that talk about iman this will surely increase ur imann and it makes u have confidence and believe in your religion. please don't listen to divisive preaches that will makes u feel like the religion is divided while the only religion Allah recognised is Islam.

2) Qur'an recitation is very important especially to people like u I'm telling u if u can give just one hour per day to recite Qur'an it will improve ur believe in Allah.

3) Whenever shaitan is playing with your imann (you are feeling like u don't believe in Allah) start saying A'uzu billahi minal shaidanir rajim, you can say it in your heart or mouth

4) You have to stop going to club and other wrong places because it will make you feel like u don't nedd any religion since it prohibited you from enjoying ur life.

5) Whenever an atheist post something search in Google for Islamic view on that thing.

6) Search in google for debate between atheist and some Islamic scholars you will surely see the difference and it will make u have confidence in ur religion.

7) Innas salata tanha alal fashai wal munkar- make sure you are doing prayer correctly

Brother wallahi there is no religion like islam and even me I experience this kind of ur problem some time ago, but all I know is that even if religion is fake thing I prefer to die Muslim than without religion.

May Allah bless you brother



9jawear:
my brother Islam is basically a mix between Judaism, Christianity, Zoroastrianism and some other pagan religions ( Meccan pagans, Sabians etc. ). There's also a lot of mythological stories in the Quran that used to circulate in Arabia which Muhammad made the mistake of incorporating into the Islamic canon. You can easily see this is not a religion from God when you look at these facts objectively.

Circling the Kaaba 7 times ( pagan ritual the meccans did )
Kissing the black stone ( As the meccans did )
Praying 5 times a day ( which the Sabians did )
The whole act of the pilgrimage to Kaaba and traveling between the two hills 7 times which Muslims do today was a pagan practice preformed by the meccans.
Fasting on the 10th day of Muharram was also a pagan practice which Muhammad incorporated into Islam.


All the ceremonies of the hajj (pilgrimage in the month of Dhu'l-Hejja) and the 'amra (supererogatory or lesser pilgrimage), such as the wearing of a seamless white robe, the kissing or touching of the black stone, the running between Sata and Marwa, the halt at Aratat, and the pebblethrowing (symbolic stoning of the Satan), had been practiced in the pre- Islamic period and were retained with only a few modifications. The pagan Arabs, while circumambulating the Ka'ba, used to call out to Lat, Ozza, Manat, or any other idol that their tribe revered, "Here I am at your service (labbayka), O Manat!" or whichever. Under Islam, the call to an idol was replaced by the call to God (Allahomma), and the formula became labbayka Allahomma labbayka


All those you are saying are pagans, Judaism or Christians practices are not compulsory part of Islam

Another thing is that Islam believe Christianity and judaism are religions from Allah before Christians and Judaist deviate so Islam practice their good part and throw away the bad parts

All what you said are not among five pillars of Islam but some sunnah's (voluntary) which even if you did not perform you are still Muslim

Cc friendNG, Abdelkabir,









I've been where you are bro, so permit me to go into specifics.
1. Have an alarm clock for Subuhi and discipline yourself that you just must get up and pray (even if its just the 2 rakahs and going straight back to bed for a start?
2. You can download Islamic lectures translated in English by renowned scholars. So you can listen to them even on the move via earpiece or in your car.
3. Download Quran with translation your mobile phone and have a target to read at least 10 verses (not chapters) daily for a start.
Furthermore, I won't tell you that change your friends or cycle, but understand that one should always have friends for different things, those for when you want to club, other for studies, ambitious ones for career and business and religious ones for the sake of Allah. As your wants change, that's how you'll tilt towards the friend with such characteristics.
I believe that if you are consistent Insha Allahu your Imaan will improve significantly with time.

May Allah make our feet firm on His Path.
Dear Brother, please note that being in company of the righteous servants of Allah and in gatherings where remembrance is given is one of the things that can render the assistance you require. Gathering of remembrance here do not mean "Asalatu" gatherings, rather I mean gatherings where Islamic lectures are been given. Please identify one or two of such gatherings near you and cling unto it. Another thing is frequent recitation of the Noble Qur'an. Make the Qur'an your companion and always reflect upon the messages therein. Never stay a day without reciting at least a page or two from the Qur'an. This would in shaa Allah strengthen your faith. May Allah increase you in Eeman and make good deeds and sincerity easy for you.
