As salamu 'alaikum. I am a muslim who is trying to attain iman and yaqin. For that I need to clear all kinds of doubts that I have in my mind. Can anyone answer the following-
1. How did so many false religions like christianity, hinduism, budhdhism, etc come into existence? How come so many people follow these manmade religions and neglect Islam? 2. Why is it so easy to fall into kufr and why is it so hard to have iman?
3. Why do we find du'as unanswered so many times?
4. How does this happen- a child with almost no knowledge can easily believe in Islam but an adult with much more knowledge finds it hard to have iman?
5. How do I know that I am learning Islam the way it was at the time of Rasool sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam?
6. Can I ask Allah to show me signs to help me have yaqin that Islam is the true religion?
7. Why does Allah allow false religions to come into existence?
8. Why are so many people disbelievers?
9. How were false scriptures like bible, ramayan, tripitok, talmud made?
10. Can I feel that I am following the truth? Why do I feel sometimes that I am not?
11. Why are so many muslims so weak in iman? JazakAllahu khair. Awaiting your reply.

Brother salam alaykom I'm neither a scholar nor an expert, but I think there is only one answer to all of your questions; GO TO QUR'AN read the holy quran more than one time and I'm sure you will find all your answers in it...believe me many of us had many doubts and questions in our minds but the problem we didn't realize that Allah talks about everything in his book...so go to the roots bro... Salam

  1. They were all religions of tawheed (monotheism) all from Allah, but people changed them, they wrote somethings in the previous books and took off somethings and slowly the original text and practices became extinct leaving us with many false religions. Also people follow these religions because it's what there family follows and it's the only way of life they know, or because those religions have been molded to fit the convenience of people so they are simply easier, also because they simply don't know what religion is or what islam is, but probably the most important is that people have so many misconceptions on islam because of what media feeds into there brain they refuse to seek more knowledge about it and learn it's true beauty ... and also many other reasons

  2. This one i really don't know how to answer well, but i would it's because of the temptations and beautiful false things surrounding kufr and all the rules that go against human desires that are surrounding iman, and the reason Allah did that is to see who is truly seeking His pleasure wanting Janaah (paradise) that he is willing to give up all of those strong human desires and wantings for His sake.

  3. A Dua is never unanswered no matter what.. There are three answers Allah gives you 3 answers: Yes Yes but not now, at a better time No because I have something better planned for you All the Dua's that Allah answers No will come to you on the Day of Judgment in the form of ajer (reward) that you will wish all your Dua's where not answered in this Dunya. And sometimes Allah answers Yes but doesn't give you the thing you asked for directly, instead He uses it to take away a hardship of some kind. For example you make Dua that your son stays healthy and safe but he still gets the flu, that doesn't mean you Dua was not answered cause Allah might have decreed that he will get a deadly disease but instead with your Dua he only got the flu.

Wa Alaykum Salaam

  1. Islam/religions have been tampered with, right from the beginning. Adam AS was a Prophet of Allah, he taught his children, but a few generations down the line, people changed things through the deception of Shaytan. But Prophets and Messengers came to reinforce the Haq consistently.

  2. Success has never been easy, and it never will be. I wont go into detail, but there is very good reason for this, a little like the law of gravity. Allah is merciful.

  3. If your dua is not answered in this dunya, it will be answered in a better manner in the afterlife inshaAllah. Allah decides. He may want to test you by making you work for it, or He may test you by accepting your dua right way. Allah also may not accept your dua in this life simply because He loves you.. e.g. you want to become very rich, that may not necessarily be to your benefit. Of course there is more reasons than this, Allah knows best.

  4. Adults can be very sinful, children are sinless to a certain age. The disease of the heart causes blindness. Disease comes from continuous sin, arrogance, pure ignorance etc. Adults are more likely to be manipulated, due to their desires etc. Allah knows best.

  5. Quran and Sunnah. There is The Science of Hadith, which is very important. As the Prophet SAW said "Truth is clear from falsehood". After building the right concept of mind through studying Quran and Sunnah, Scholars are able to do Ijtihad, a method of judgement. You do need to be careful what you believe or follow, always go back to Quran & Sunnah.

  6. Of course you can, dont expect a miracle, but Allah shows us signs through experiences, dreams, knowledge etc.

  7. As a test. Allah allows people who insist on following the wrong path to stray. Example is what they tried to do to Isa AS, they tried to crucify him. Allah allowed them to stray. They planned, and so did Allah SWT.

  8. A little like football teams, things change. I cant really answer this for you, but Allah guides whom He Wills. Perhaps most people do not deserve to be guided at this point.

  9. Islam have been tampered with since the time of Adam AS.

  10. You must keep reading and learning. Through knowledge you will find the truth inshaAllah. It takes time and longer for others. Your questions have answers, put your trust in Allah. There is a lot of Wisdom behind everything Allah has set.You may also feel that way because Shaytan is trying to make you accept something you should not, specially if you live in a land of Kufr. Shaytan will try get you to accept their ways, norms, values etc.

  11. I have met amazing Muslims. You do get people who are not on the deen as much as others. Allah tests everyone in different ways. There are strong Muslims out there :)

The truth and good i have said is from Allah, and if i have any mistakes, they are all from me. Be on the journey of learning seeking the bounty of Allah.

May Allah guide us to the truth. Barakallahu Feek
