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 على ...

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 ...

Don't overcomplicate wudu. In Quran it is said, "O you who have believed, when you rise to [perform] prayer, wash your faces and your forearms to the elbows and wipe over your heads and wash your feet to the ankles". So it should not be too hard to make sure that you washed your face and other parts at least once. With Salah, Prophet gave us the best ...

Ismail (AS) was the ancestor of Quraish. He wasn't a warner sent to them when they were lost in misguidance, nor did he have scripture he brought for them to read. As such, there is no contradiction between the verses mentioned. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was the first ever warner sent to Quraish and more generally to the Arabs. In addition, the Quran was ...

Waalaikumsalam, Abu Talha reported Allaah's Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) having said: "Angels do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture." [HR. al-Bukhari and Muslim] To answer your question, other animals that does not belong to the following categories are allowed to be taken care as a pet : Animals that cause harm or ...

A translation of the verse is: So if you are in doubt, [O Muhammad], about that which We have revealed to you, then ask those who have been reading the Scripture before you. The truth has certainly come to you from your Lord, so never be among the doubters. (10:94) The verse outwardly addresses the Prophet (SAW) but it implicitly addresses people in ...

Ayub أيوب is an Arabic synonym of a Hebrew or Aramaic name I'm not familiar with the original name (nor language) be it Yob or Job er whatever this name in all cases was transliterated so concluding from it to English is simply wrong. Most names have only a meaning in their original language. Furthermore there's no backup for interpreting something to any ...

They are not the same. Allah is eternal meaning that He has no beginning and no end. Life after death has a beginning and no end. Also Allah's existence is inherent to His person, whereas the existence after death of a people is granted and sustained by Allah, not due to themselves.

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: ...

Whoever doubts Allah or anything else that Allah has said in the Quran or anything the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) has said has disbelieved. Allah said in Surah Al Hujurat (49:15): إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ ثُمَّ لَمْ يَرْتَابُوا وَجَاهَدُوا بِأَمْوَالِهِمْ وَأَنْفُسِهِمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ...

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 ...
