One morning, Grandfather Salman called his four grandchildren

hiding-place to eat their dates. All except Ahmad said, ‘No!’
Someone said he had hidden behind the sofa, the other behind
the curtain and another under the bed. When Grandfather
asked Ahmad why he had not eaten the date, he said that he

Iman – The Faith of a Muslim
Iman is an Arabic word. It means faith. Faith
means complete trust in someone. It means if you
have faith in someone, you believe in him with all your
heart, and you do not have any doubt about it. Doubt
and faith are two opposite things. If you have doubt in
something, you believe that it might not be true.
Iman is a state in which the heart accepts the truth
and lives by it.
The lips and the tongue declare the truth, and the
limbs carry out what is required of the truth.
Faith (Iman) is light. Doubt is darkness.
A Muslim has faith (Iman) in:
1 . Allah,
- His Angels,
- His Books,
- His Messengers,
- The Day of Judgement, and
- Divine Destiny – in the truth that everything good
or bad comes from Allah.
