Faithful Muslims: Part 1 - Faith in Allah

Assalamualaikum, and good morning to my fellow brothers and sisters in Islam. Since this is my first entry on this blog I joined, I decide to tell about faith. Faith is really important mainly because it involve with our Iman. When I say faith, it means we have a belief and our belief as in Allah (tawakkul 'ala Allah ) As some of us might have learned Tawheed (the Oneness of Allah) Remember my dear friends, disbelief in Allah is marked as Kufr or Kafir. Learning Tawheed will rekindle our Iman, as well as it is compulsary for every muslim to understand its meaning.

Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle said, “Allah has ninety-nine Names, one-hundred less one; and he who memorized them all by heart will enter Paradise.” To count something means to know it by heart.

Also, in the Noble Qur'an:

وَلِلَّهِ الْأَسْمَاءُ الْحُسْنَىٰ فَادْعُوهُ بِهَا وَذَرُوا الَّذِينَ يُلْحِدُونَ فِي أَسْمَائِهِ سَيُجْزَوْنَ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ
And to Allāh belong the best names, so invoke Him by them. And leave [the company of] those who practice deviation concerning His names. They will be recompensed for what they have been doing.

Now we see why Faith is Allah is really important for us to understand and learn thrugh through the concept of Tawheed.

This is the list of Allah's beautiful names their meanings:

I guess I'll stop now in this post. Assalamualaikum......
