If I have doubts about Islam to the extent that I have whispers (waswasa) about it, have I then become a hypocrite?

1 Answer 1


Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim. Alhamdulillahi rabbil-'alamin. Was-Salatu was-Salam 'ala Sayyidina wa Azimina, Wa Habibi Qulubina wa Shafii Nufusina, Abul Qasim Muhammad. Wa 'ala Ahli Bayti tayyibina tahireen.

Right Arabic word for hypocrite, in Islam, is Munafiq. Munafiq is a false Muslim. Munafiq is a disbeliever. He is not Muslim. He shows himself as a Muslim only for the purpose of disguise.
