I dont know why, all this feeling has LEFT. Im upset because my body is restless and I want to fall in love with Islam again. I tried to pray the Quran and will continue. I mean, I dont FEAR, LOVE or have any feeling towards Islam in anything... For example, on the tv it said, every soul has to taste death. In my head, i said 'Yeah I know'.. normally before, I would dua and say Astaghfirullah and fear.. but now ITS GONE... PLEASE HELP ME AND TELL ME WHAT I SHOULD DO TO GET THE FEELINGS BACK.... I WANT TO LOVE OUR BELOVED PROPHET MUHAMMAD PEACE BE UPON HIM AND FEAR FROM ALLAH'S PUNISHMENT.. BUT IM NOT... WHYYY :'(

      I have asked Allah in Dua and Sajdah to help me... you all can try to show me ways as well.. please

      Jizakallah
      Your concern alone is a testament to how much you love Islam. Don't worry you probably just have low Eeman.

        Your problem is one of spirituality - You need to find a teacher who can guide you with respect to your spiritual being. What you described is the initial phase everyone goes through - You are new to the certain ideas so they evoke emotions but the more you listen to them the less an effect it has on you. You need to learn 'new' things about the religion (fiqh, hadeeth etc) which will establish you mentally/intelectually and then find a spiritual teacher who will guide your heart so that you can once again relish in those moments you are so eagar to revive.
        Remember that the shariaa is hull of the fruit - It purpose is to protect the core of the fruit which is the nafs/spirituality.

          im going to add something from a non muslim point of view... but it may or may not help. St. Mother Theresa was a woman who did so much good for Catholics... for those who had nothing.. she was a nun.... and from all outside appearences she was someone a lot of women ( and some men i'm sure... ) strived to be like.... strived to emmulate because of all the good she was able to do. She said one time in an interview.. that yes.. at times.. instead of feeling things were from God... there was just a void. My point is. Even the most pious, the most religious ... go through some of what you feel. I wish that Allah (swt) will help guide you back to him .. and that everyone will forgive me from using the story of mother theresa.

            assalamu alaykum sister

            sister, firstly i would encourage you to listen to more lectures instead of listening to anasheed and to listen to more qur'an recitation, beneficial talks etc.

            when you read the qur'aan, do you understand what you are saying? if no, then please pick up a translation and try and ponder upon what you are reading. I personally find that even if I read one small surah but have fully comprehended the context of the surah, it is more beneficial for me than if i was to read the whole qur'aan without not knowing one word of what i have read.

            Quraan is the kalam of Allah subhanahu wa ta'aala and to know what Allah subhananu wa ta'aala is promising to the believers and to the disbelievers, then wallahi this is very powerful.

            Sometimes the shayateen, may Allah subhanahu wa ta'aala's curse be upon them, whispers to us to the effect that we think that we are bad muslims and we lose hope of Allah subahanhu wa ta'aala's mercy, don't fall into this trap, rather this is an excellent moment for you to make dua in abundance, to make ibadah in abundance, because look, you 'have no feeling left' as you put it and this has been for a week, what about the kuffar who have no love at all for Allah subhanahu wa ta'aala and have never experienced this love? look how blessed we are, that we have been favoured and guided towards the right, with the permission of Allah subhanahu wa ta'aala, walhamdu lilahi rabbil aalimeen.

            so my point is, now that you know how it feels to not have the same feeling that you once did, be thankful to Allah 'azza wa jal for guiding you, thank Allah, jalla wa 'aala every day of your life for guiding you to the siratul mustaqeem when so many have strayed and continue to stray.

            we all go through this sister and it makes our eeman stronger, because once we get the passion for the deen back, we appreciate everything a whole lot more.

            it is so easy to just think that because we are muslims now, we will be muslims tomorrow, but wallahi this is not true, so it is so important to be sincere and to have a pure love for the deen and to remain steadfast at all times.

            make more dhikr and keep your tongue moist with the remembrance of Allah subhanahu wa ta'aala,

            continue with your daily adiyah, ie, when you step out the house, ensure you step out with your left foot, say the dua, say the dua when travelling, eating etc

            also, if you can, i would recommend fasting, i personally find this a great way to keep my eeman on track. if you can, try fasting mondays and thursdays, if that is too much then maybe just monday, or just thursday, or even 3 days a month..
