Pillars of Islam

   
Faith is the confident belief in the truth, value, or trustworthiness of a person, an idea, or a thing. The Belief that does not require logical proof or material evidence. The theological virtue may be defined as secure belief (aymaan) in Allah and a trusting acceptance of Allah's will. The Faith in Islam is belief (aymaan) as described in Qur’an: “Say (O Muslims): "We believe in Allah and the revelation given to us and to Abraham Isma’il Isaac Jacob and the Tribes and that given to Moses and Jesus and that given to (all) Prophets from their Lord we make no difference between one and another of them and we bow to Allah (in Islam).”(Qur’an;2:136). “O believers enter into Islam completely and do not follow the footsteps of Satan, surely he is your clear-cut enemy.” (Qur’an;2:208). Faith is by the Grace of Allah for those who use their reason, Allah says:” It is not possible for anyone to believe except by the permission of Allah, and He throws filth on those who do not use their reason. Say: "Look at whatever exists in the heavens and the earth." Signs and warnings do not benefit those people who do not believe.”(Qur’an;10:100-101).
The faith must withstand the test of time, as per Qur’an; "Do men think that they will be left alone on saying "We believe" and that they will not be tested? "(Qur’an;29:2). “We shall surely test your steadfastness with fear and famine, with loss of property, life and produce. Give good news to those who endure with patience; who, when afflicted with calamity, say: "We belong to Allah and to Him we shall return." Such are the people on whom there are blessings and Mercy from Allah; and they are the ones that are rightly guided.”(Qur’an;2:155-157). "It is He who sent down Tranquility into the hearts of the Believers that they may Add Faith to their Faith; for to Allah belong the Forces of the heavens and the earth; and Allah is full of Knowledge and Wisdom; "(Qur’an;48:4). “Allah's object also is to purge those that are true in faith and to deprive of blessing those that resist faith”. (Qur’an;3:141).
The faith is not complete when it is followed blindly or accepted unquestioningly. Man must build his faith on well-grounded convictions beyond any reasonable doubt and above uncertainty: “Behold!  Abraham said: "My lord! Show me how you give life to the dead." He replied: "Have you no faith in this?" Abraham humbly submitted: "Yes! But I ask this to reassure my heart …"(Qur’an;2:260). Prophet Abraham (peace by upon him) had complete faith in Allah's power, but he wanted, with Allah's permission, to give an explanation of that faith to his own heart and mind.  Islam insures freedom to believe and forbids compulsion in religion.
