1. Hope and Feeling of Love: Anyone who
knows that all his deeds are accounted for, and that his efforts do not go in
waste, and also that Allah rewards him for his actions and deeds with Paradise,
though He by His benign Mercy sometimes bestows upon him rewards for his good
intentions too, he then leads his life with his love for Allah in a state of
2. Abstains from Corruption: Such a man
abstains from treachery, meanness, and hypocrisy. Anyone who considers himself
to be ever-present before Allah and considers Allah as Omniscient can never
practice deceit and hypocrisy.
3. Preserves His Self-respect: He, who has
submitted himself to the Will of Allah and truthfully obeys His commands, can
never bow down before anyone in authority, status and power. He considers
everybody as he himself is.
4. He is Never in Loss: Since the man of
faith benefits by his timely deed and receives an everlasting reward from Allah
and pins his hopes only on Allah, he never sustains any loss at all.
5. Tranquility: If we look into the
following causes of fear and restlessness, we find that faith in Allah provides
a complete peace, satisfaction and a state of tranquility Causes of Fear and
(a) Sometimes past lapses and bad deeds are the causes of one’s fears and
worries but the remembrance of Allah changes this state of mind into that of
peace and tranquility because Allah is Merciful and Benevolent and He forgives
sins and accepts one’s repentance.
(b) Sometimes loneliness and the very thought of helplessness leads to fears and
worries but the faith that Allah is Omnipresent and Omniscient changes this
state of mind into that of peace and tranquility. The man believes that Allah is
not only our Companion and Compassionate but He hears us, sees our deeds and
bestows His blessings on us.
(c) Sometimes the aimless life and the sense of lethargy make one’s mind
restless but the faith in Allah removes all such fears and worries as Allah has
created every thing in this world with a purpose by His Wisdom in a definite
quantity and number within a specific sphere.
(d) Sometimes a man gets worried that he has not been able to please everybody,
and he broods over the thought that he annoyed or provided the cause of
displeasure to a particular person or a group of persons, but the faith in Allah
that one should only try to please Allah as honor and disgrace only come from
Him removes that state of restlessness. And it is confirmed by the Holy Qur’an
﴾Remembrance of Allah certainly brings comfort to all hearts. (13:28)﴿
Signs of Dishonesty
He who does not have faith in the real cause of the Creation, that is Almighty
and All-Wise Allah, is a person, who finds himself shaky, aimless and lonesome
and concerns himself like animals and birds with the enjoyment of the comforts
of worldly life only; who acts only under the pressure of the society; who
considers death the last thing in life, and does not have the belief in the life
after death as he does not believe in the immortality of soul; who surrenders
his life to be dominated by external powers and his personal desires; who is
beset with vague ideas and notions, deprivation, faults and lapses as his
article of faith has not been guided by the infallible Prophets and Divine
revelations, who is completely unaware of the very purpose of life. He does not
know as to why he has come to this world and why he is departing from this
world. His only line of thinking is as to how his life should be spent? He does
not realize the very purpose of life. He is devoid of the Divine Approach to
Universe and Islamic faith.
In short, one can detect faith from the face of those who have belief in Allah
and of those who have no belief in Allah.
