Do you know the definition of Imaan? This definition, and acting upon it, is the key difference between the believer and the hypocrite. In this beneficial lecture Ustadh Abu Iyaad Amjad Rafiq explains some key principles, including this, regarding one’s Imaan. The speaker also briefly goes what the word Islam means, and the three things which make up a person’s Islam.
These two basic and important concepts of a Muslim’s faith have been mentioned in the Quran and The Sunnah both together, and separately. When this happens, these different scenarios cause them to take on different meanings. Ustaadh reiterates and goes through it in detail, making that it is clear to the listener.
A Muslim may say that their Imaan increases and decreases, so since Islaam and Imaan have such a close relationship, can a Muslim say that their Islaam increases and decreases? This intriguing question is clarified and explained in the audio by the speaker.
The significance of learning about one’s Imaan and Islaam separates them not only from hypocrisy but from deviant sects. Sects who have made major errors in their aqeedah (belief), from among them are the Murjiah. To understand this further, listen to the audio.
All of this is part of his series of classes which goes through the Forty Hadeeth of Imam An-Nawawi, a compilation of hadeeth which all issues of the of the shariah revolve around.
