These Are the Qualities of a True Believer in the Light of the Quran?

Many people think they’re believers, but don’t care to check whether the description of true believers according to Allah apply to them or not.

Also some of us say: “our belief is only in our hearts.” Whereas, Allah Himself said that believers have inward and outward qualities that must be manifested.

So, let’s take a look at some of the qualities of true believers as per the Quran.

GROWING FAITH, REGULAR PRAYERS AND CHARITY

Allah says:

“The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts become fearful, and when His verses are recited to them, it increases them in faith; and upon their Lord they rely –

The ones who establish prayer, and from what We have provided them, they spend.

Those are the believers, truly. For them are degrees [of high position] with their Lord and forgiveness and noble provision.” (Quran 8: 2-4)

This Means They:

Fear Allah, continue seeking what pleases Him; and remembering Him increases them in faith and awe.

They rely upon Him true reliance.

They’re committed to their 5 daily prayers

They spend regularly from whatever Allah has blessed them with.

THEY DON’T DOUBT, AND STRIVE EARNESTLY IN THE CAUSE OF ALLAH

Allah says:

“The believers are only the ones who have believed in Allah and His Messenger and then doubt not but strive with their properties and their lives in the cause of Allah. It is those who are the truthful.” (Quran 49:15)

This Means They:

Don’t indulge in doubts or reasons and environments that make them doubt their religion.

They have unwavering faith in Allah and His Messenger. They don’t hesitate about true pure monotheism.

They follow this true faith with striving in the cause of Allah with everything precious to them; their time, energy, money, talents…etc. They know that this faith and the eternal rewards are worth every effort and that if we present to Allah everything upon earth, it won’t measure up to the blessing of guidance or the eternal unlimited rewards He will grant believers.

OBEYING THE PROPHET AND FOLLOWING HIS JUDGMENT

Allah says:

“But no, by your Lord, they will not [truly] believe until they make you, [O Muhammad], judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in [full, willing] submission.” (Qur’an 4: 65)

This Means:

Those who say we only believe in the Quran but not Muhammad or the Sunnah, have negated their faith!

Obeying the Messenger is as urgent as obeying Allah Himself. Allah made consulting the judgment of the Prophet a condition for true faith.

It is necessary to study the Seerah of the Prophet and to follow His blessed Sunnah eagerly, and to go back to the Book and Sunnah in matters that we have questions about. Whatever Allah and His Messenger say will be the best judgment for true believers.

Passing Trials With Faith

“Do the people think that they will be left to say, “We believe” and they will not be tried?

But We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars.” (Qur’an 29: 2-3)

This Means They:

Know that this life is a test and everyone will be tested.

Tests don’t make them lose their faith.

They’re steadfast during hard times.

FINAL WORD

The closeness of Allah Most High, The King, is not cheap.

If you want to earn a prestigious degree or high position, you put rigorous effort. We do that for a temporary world that will end. What about the eternal world that never ends and has WHATEVER you please with no effort, sadness, pain or sorrow forever?

Know that the succeeding is not due to our own strength or personal superiority. It is due to seeking Allah’s Help. No one can proceed on this path without Allah’s help.

Allah taught us in Surat Al Fatiha that we say in prayer 17 times a day: “It is You alone we worship, and You alone we ask for help.”

So we will not succeed without Allah’s help.

This is to tell everyone that the path is very easy if you seek Allah’s Help. He will facilitate whatever you think is difficult or impossible.

All you have to do is be sincere and seek Him, and He will facilitate everything for you.

“Indeed, your efforts are diverse. As for he who gives and fears Allah And believes in the best [reward], We will ease him toward ease. But as for he who withholds and considers himself free of need And denies the best [reward], We will ease him toward difficulty.” (Quran 92: 4-10)

And Allah knows best

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
