Faith, an introduction (good believers)

  • Meaning of Faith
if a person believe about anything logically then it is called Faith
But if a person believe anything without logic and reason it is called blind believe
In a Islamic terminology if a person believe logically in articles or elements of Islam he / she is known as believer
While if a person don’t use logic and reason due to this he doesn’t believe in the facts of Islam he is unbeliever
According to any religion there are two types of people believers of that religion and unbeliever of that religion
In the same way according to Islam there are two types of people
  • Believers of Islam , they are known as momin And
  • unbeliever of Islam, known as a kafir
According to the majority of the people of knowledge  among Companions of the Prophet pbuh and the followers, Iman  is affirmation  with the tongue, testification with heart and action by limbs of the body.
Concisely, statement and action is called iman  (Faith), because attestation (Tasdiq) which translates into action is in reality the action of the heart.
Likewise, according to the people of the Sumah, iman continues to increase
or decrease due to vaiious causes.

  • Qualities of believers​
Almighty say in Glorious Quran
Al-Anfal 8:1
يَسْـَٔلُونَكَ عَنِ ٱلْأَنفَالِۖ قُلِ ٱلْأَنفَالُ لِلَّهِ وَٱلرَّسُولِۖ فَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَأَصْلِحُوا۟ ذَاتَ بَيْنِكُمْۖ وَأَطِيعُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥٓ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ
They ask you, [O Muhammad], about the bounties [of war]. Say, “The [decision concerning] bounties is for Allah and the Messenger.”  So fear Allah and amend that which is between you and
obey Allah and His Messenger, if you should be believers.

Al-Anfal 8:2


إِنَّمَا ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ ٱلَّذِينَ إِذَا ذُكِرَ ٱللَّهُ وَجِلَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَإِذَا تُلِيَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ ءَايَٰتُهُۥ زَادَتْهُمْ إِيمَٰنًا وَعَلَىٰ رَبِّهِمْ يَتَوَكَّلُونَ


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 –

Al-Anfal 8:3

ٱلَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَٰهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ

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

Al-Anfal 8:4

أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ حَقًّاۚ لَّهُمْ دَرَجَٰتٌ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ وَمَغْفِرَةٌ وَرِزْقٌ كَرِيمٌ

Those are the believers, truly.  For them are degrees [of high position] with their Lord and forgiveness and noble provision.

At-Taubah 9:71

وَٱلْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَٱلْمُؤْمِنَٰتُ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَآءُ بَعْضٍۚ يَأْمُرُونَ بِٱلْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ ٱلْمُنكَرِ وَيُقِيمُونَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ وَيُطِيعُونَ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥٓۚ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ سَيَرْحَمُهُمُ ٱللَّهُۗ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

The believing men and believing women are allies of one another. They enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. Those – Allah will have mercy upon them. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.

At-Taubah 9:72

وَعَدَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَٱلْمُؤْمِنَٰتِ جَنَّٰتٍ تَجْرِى مِن تَحْتِهَا ٱلْأَنْهَٰرُ خَٰلِدِينَ فِيهَا وَمَسَٰكِنَ طَيِّبَةً فِى جَنَّٰتِ عَدْنٍۚ وَرِضْوَٰنٌ مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ أَكْبَرُۚ ذَٰلِكَ هُوَ ٱلْفَوْزُ ٱلْعَظِيمُ

Allah has promised the believing men and believing women gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally, and pleasant dwellings in gardens of perpetual residence; but approval from Allah is greater. It is that which is the great attainment
