    Questions about Islam

    Report bad ads?

    So this is going to be my little thread about Islam.

    If you are not a new member you know I have been jumping in and out of religions.

    But now since people have told me come back and what not, I have decided to "consider it". So I am ok with becoming Muslim. But, I do not believe in everything within it. So can someone be Muslim but not believe in everything?

    Also what if I become Muslim but do not do the daily Fardh acts, Hajj and Ramadhan. What is my destiny?

    Re: Questions about Islam

    Salam, It should come from your heart not by force for others.
    Since i read how important ramadan is i promised myself to have a proper
    Ramadan next coming ramadan. The punishment for people not doing ramadan is very heavy i read. So in sha Allah i will do the next one good in the eye of the allmighty.


    You should go to the hajj if you can go.
    I always taught such a thing is not So necesarily but i cjanged my minder.
    I think once visited mekkah and the hajj the connection between you and Allah will grow.

    I have visited Meqqah and Medina and here we are.

    Anyways, I don't think I'll ever be able to believe in some things in Islam.

    Re: Questions about Islam

    It is not anyone's place to say. 10000% Allah's domain.

    Simply put, from my simple understanding, no Shahadah no chance. If you believe, you'll be punished for sins before entering jannah..

    But then again, to be muslim is to submit. How can we be one who submits when we do not do what is commanded?


    Questions about Islam

    As long as my heart does beat, I shall live, not lie
    For when my heart does stop its beat, with truth, I die.

    Re: Questions about Islam

    If you believe in the one God than you will do as he commanded and if you believe in God than you can believe in what he says.

    Re: Questions about Islam

    ^ Can the One True God really be any other than the Creator and Originator of the heavens and the earth, who created us and sustains us? Can any other be worthy of worship other than Him?

    This is a clear message for mankind in order that they may be warned thereby, and that they may know that He is only One God, and that those of understanding may take heed (14:52)


    Indeed Allah knows, and you know not (16: 74, part)

    For Striving for Deen

    I didn't realize I couldn't reply, so I posted an answer to your thread in a new post.

    There is only one God, but getting to know him can be difficult for us here struggling in this dunya! Some folks might disagree with me, but I would not turn away from Islam because there are things you disagree with. Start with the faith that you do have, and practice this and keep at it. Allah himself will help you grow your faith as you are able. He knows and understands your capacity, and he will help you. Allah is kind and merciful

    There is only One God - No other God exists. The God of Abraham, Moses, Jesus Muhammad pbuh. Is that not clear? If not why not?

    Questions about Islam

    Do you think the pious don't sin?

    They merely:
    Veiled themselves and didn't flaunt it
    Sought forgiveness and didn't persist
    Took ownership of it and don't justify it
    And acted with excellence after they had erred - Ibn al-Qayyim

    none can compel you to believe in Islam unless your sincere to believe.
