Faith in Islam

What is faith in Islam? What do we believe in? These questions are asked by non-muslims, new muslims, and our children who watch us worship one God (Allah). So what do we tell them?

When the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was asked the question by Angel Jibril (Gabriel): “What is Faith?”, his reply was;

  1. To believe in Allah (God)
  2. Believe in his Angels
  3. Believe in his books.
  4. Believe in his Messengers.
  5. Believe in the Day of Resurrection (Judgement day)
  6. Believe in the Qadr (Decree, Gods will) The good and bad.

These are the 6 articles of faith which are essentials and one of the basics of being a Muslim.
