True Faith (Sahih Iman)

The biggest cause for us is to protect our faith. If a servant protects his faith and dies in that state, he saves himself. If he is a sinner, he either gets forgiven or he burns in hell for the amount of his sins but gets saved at the end. If he is a righteous person, he goes to heaven. Allah Almighty commands:
“Then, he whose balance (of good deeds) will be (found) heavy, Will be in a life of good pleasure and satisfaction. But he whose balance (of good deeds) will be (found) light,- Will have his home in a (bottomless) Pit. And what will explain to thee what this is? (It is) a Fire Blazing fiercely! “(30)

10 merits are written to the notebook of the deeds of a believer against a good deed. Only one sin is written against a sin. Allah Almighty commands:
“He that doeth good shall have ten times as much to his credit: He that doeth evil shall only be recompensed according to his evil: no wrong shall be done unto them.” (31)
There is an angel on our right side who writes merits, there is an angel on our left side who writes sins. Allah Almighty commands:
“But verily over you (are appointed angels) to protect you,- Kind and honorable,- writing down (your deeds): They know all that ye do. “(32)

The points which make our faith are based upon the foundations of:
“Amantu Billah” Allah Almighty exists and is one. He has no partner or helper. He is free from space. Allah almighty hears and sees everything. He has power and the omnipotence. He is the owner of everything. He bigoted not, nor is He begotten. He has Asma-ul Husna (The beautiful names of Allah). He has a thousand and one names. His names are mentioned in the Holy Quran. His 99 names are written in the tablets. Every name has different meanings.

“Wa Malaikatihi” Allah Almighty has angels. Angels do not eat or drink and they have no such attributes as male or female. Their number are only known by Allah. A portion of them are responsible over the commands of Allah for His creatures.
There are also the jinn and shatans in addition to them. The Jinn and the shatans are close to each other. There are believers among the jinn. As they came once and listened to the call of Muhammad; some of them have accepted Islam. As for the shatan‟s, only Allah knows their numbers. There are different varieties of shatans. Now, we believe in the existence of the angels, the jinn and shatans.

”Wa kutubihi” we believed in the books and the booklets. 4 books have come to the prophets. 100 booklets have come to some of the prophets in pieces. the Book of Psalms came to David (PBUH), the old testament to Moses(PBUH), the new testament to Jesus(PBUH), Quran to Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). Four books and 100 booklets have been collected in Quran. The believers in Quran are the people of belief. The ones who don‟t believe in Quran are the people of rejection. The old testament, the book of psalms and the new testament have been made invalid, their authority has been phased out. All the books that have been sent by Allah almighty has been brought together in the Holy Quran. We have believed in all this.

“Wa Rasulih” we have believed in the prophets too. A believer must believe that all the prophets have been sent by the Haq the Most High. If a Muslim gets angry with the Christians and says, “you don‟t believe in our prophet Muhammad, so I am not accepting Hazrat Jesus” he becomes an unbeliever.

“Wa‟l Yawmi‟l-ahiri” we believed in the day of judgement. We have believed in the day of judgement, meaning, belief in returning to life after death, the formation of the place where people will gather on the Day of Judgment and people will give account of their deeds.

“Wa bi‟l Kadari Hayrihi ve Sharrihi Minallahu Taala” meaning we have believed in fate. We believed that bad or good are from Allah but servants do have a limited will. A servant must not use his limited will in a bad way, if he does so, Allah creates the servants bad will and this way he commits his sin.
Humans have limited wills. For this reason humans are responsible for their sins and merits.

“Wa‟l Ba‟su Ba‟dal-Mawti Hakkun” this is an important matter, the place where people will gather on the Day of Judgment will be formed and questions will be asked. People of the faith will be driven to Heaven and the people of rejection to Hell.

It is necessary for someone to became a believer and go to heaven to believe in those six conditions, to approve those matters and anything related to them, and never be in doubt of them. To have any doubts from those belief principles takes one out of the circle of faith.

To believe in Amantu is the belief of imitation. If servant believes in them but has shortcomings in his deeds, he does not get out of faith, does not become an unbeliever. May be my lord forgives the shortcoming of this person. May be He throws him into his Hell but eventually takes him out again. However, one becomes an unbeliever by rejecting any of the conditions of the Amantu. It is necessary to be very careful on this matter.
I have raised this subject because, the most important matter is the matter of faith, to protect faith. May Allah make our end good. (Amen)
