WHAT IS FAITH (IMAN)?
Faith means affirmation by the believer of all that is both essential for us to know, and required for us to observe in personal practice.
In its literal sense, the word faith, in Arabic iman, means approval without condition. Used in religious sense, iman is defined as the whole-hearted embrace, approval, and declaration of the canonical truths brought by Muhammad, God’s Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace. It is therefore a condition of faith that we not neglect or contradict any part of this message.
There six principles of faith:
1. Belief in God Most High
2. Belief in God’s Angels
3. Belief in the Revealed Books
4. Belief in the Prophets
5. Belief in Resurrection, Judgment, and the Hereafter.
6. Belief in Divine Determining
