No one can really answer your question except Allah, then you. This is a test, but here is how you can try to figure out the cause. It is a test to all, believers and non-believers alike. Tests and tribulations are what distinguishes between one who is sincere and one who is lying. The Prophet said in this long hadith (only partially quoted): تعرض الفتن ...

My impression from your question is that you've gained a superficial and imperfect knowledge of a range of aspects of Islam. In this case, it's unsurprising you're having doubts; you'd have doubts learning about anything in such a manner. I encourage you to patiently and systematically go through these issues. I had some doubts while learning about Islam. ...

To answer this question, we really first of all need to go through the terms you are using and define them. Also, we must go through the verses you are quoting. Then we might come to a conclusion. So as you say, doubt and waswas might not be the same thing, they might be related, but that again depends of your definition of the word waswas. What does ...

This is such an important and profound question. I am not sure if it was answered here before, but I will try my best to answer, and may Allah guide us all. First of all, no, having doubts does not make you kafir (non believer). 1 Usually university life poses a lot of challenge for the thoughts and different arguments about religion and what not. I was ...

First note that the hadith appears in Sahih al-Bukhari and therefore is considered as trustworthy by sunni scholars. Secondly if you open Sahih al-Bukhari and read the next hadith in the same section https://sunnah.com/bukhari/64/382 you will realize that Jarir and his hundred or hundred fifty companions demolished that "Deity and its house of worship". The ...

So you feel guilty because you tried to learn something and you prefer to remain ignorant instead? It is not frowned upon to ask questions with the intention of increasing your knowledge otherwise how will you know what is permissible and what is not, you will never know every thing and it is inevitable that you will have to ask questions at some point: ...

Contrary to the previous answer, which cites Wikipedia as the go-to place for knowledge about Islam, having doubts about Allah or Islam does not make one a kafir, whose meaning derives from "to cover". So a "kafir" would be, not one who doubts or uses his/her mind in considering the issue of faith and a supreme power, but rather one who seeks actively to ...

Well you should not doubt the religious commitment of any person anyways, as only Allah is allowed to judge people. Nobody has the right to say this is a muslim and this is not a muslim. P.S : Focus on yourself and if you want to embrace someone's way of Islam, well, then think about it and if it really agrees with Islam and Qur'an. Allah will judge you, ...

Essalamou alikoum, I think my brother that your source of doubt is coming from a lack of information or non truthful side of Islam and yourself as a human, excuse me for saying that you should read a bit about universe and science more deeply, not just what atheist try to show to people, I am a physicist and I am muslim not because my father was a muslim, ...

The other answer is mostly fear of satan, which can be applied to anything, and doesn't answer anything. Unlike other religions, islam encourages you to be smart, so let us examine your question in terms of importance and "answerability". answerability Was isa part of god before or/and after he was born ? The only thing we can reasonably assume is that ...

A perfect being (God) cannot become imperfect, otherwise He was never perfect to begin with if he was susceptible to losing power. God's attributes are Eternal.. they are never "lost". So this scenario that you're mentioning is not possible. It just proves that Jesus was nothing but a human.. never divine. And he himself never said he is God or formerly God ...

From my experience I divide doubts into two types First: You just have a thought that maybe all religion or Islam is just a product of Humans, maybe all prayers seem useless and similar experiences. And you have these thoughts without any particular reason Second: You read a Hadith/Quran or hear about Islam from someone and think this does not seem right ...

Asak! I'll try to answer your question but it will be in an indirect way. Below is a famous Hadith: " Hanzala Usayyidi, who was amongst the scribes of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ). reported: I met Abu Bakr. He said: Who are you? He (Hanzala) said: Hanzala has turned to be a hypocrite. He (Abu Bakr) said: Hallowed be Allah, what are you saying? Thereupon he said: ...

If you do not have conviction that all the essentials of islam are true, then that makes you a kafir. The essentials include at the very least that Allah is the only god there has ever been, that Muhammad is his messenger and everything he said is true (note: this does not mean that one has to have conviction into all ahadith being true to be Muslim because ...
