Okay, how
to increase our faith then ?



  • Recite and ponder on the
    meanings of the Quran. Tranquility then descends and our hearts become
    soft. To get optimum benefit, remind yourself that Allah is speaking to
    you. People are described in different categories in the Quran; think of
    which one you find yourself in.


  • Realize the greatness of
    Allah. Everything is under His control. There are signs in everything we
    see that points us to His greatness. Everything happens according to His
    permission. Allah keeps track and looks after everything, even a black ant
    on a black rock on a black moonless night.


  • Make an effort to gain
    knowledge, for at least the basic things in daily life e.g. how to make
    wudu properly. Know the meanings behind Allah's names and attributes.
    People who have taqwa are those who have knowledge.

  • Attend gatherings where
    Allah is remembered. In such gatherings we are surrounded by angels.

  • We have to increase our
    good deeds. One good deed leads to another good deed. Allah will make the
    way easy for someone who gives charity and also make it easy for him or
    her to do good deeds.
    Good deeds must be
    done continuously, not in spurts.

  • We must fear the
    miserable end to our lives; the remembrance of death is the destroyer of
    pleasures.

  • Remember the different
    levels of akhirah, for instance when we are put in our graves, when we are
    judged, whether we will be in paradise or hell.

  • Make dua, realize that we
    need Allah. Be humble. Don't covet material things in this life.

  • Our love for Subhana Wa
    Ta'Ala must be shown in actions. We must hope Allah will accept our
    prayers, and be in constant fear that we do wrong. At night before going
    to sleep, we must think about what good we did during that day.

  • Realize the effects of
    sins and disobedience- one's faith is increased with good deeds and our
    faith is decreased by bad deeds. Everything that happens is because Allah
    wanted it. When calamity befalls us- it is also from Allah. It is a direct
    result of our disobedience to Allah.
