In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
The Definition of Faith in Islam.
وَ مَعْلُوْمٌ اَنَّ الْاِیْمَانَ ھُوَ الْاِقْرَارُ لَا مُجَرَّدُالتَّصْدِیْقِ وَالْاِقْرَارُ ضِمْنَ قَوْلِ الْقَلْبِ الَّذِیْ ھُوَالتَّصْدِیْقُ وَعَمَلِ الْقَلْبِ الَّذِیْ ھُوَ الْاِنْقِیَادُ
“It is understood that faith is affirmation and not merely belief. Affirmation includes the words of the heart, which is belief, and the actions of the heart, which is compliance.”
Hence, faith in Islam means to believe in Allah, to affirm His truth, and to submit to His commands. The six pillars of faith are to believe and affirm the following.
- His angels
- His messengers
- His books
- The Day of Judgment
