  • Feelings vs Faith



    What are your thoughts on this statement: "Don't build your marriage on your feelings that constantly change. Build your marriage on your faith in Allah."??
    رَّبِّ ارْحَمْهُمَا كَمَا رَبَّيَانِي صَغِيرًا

    Isn't faith in Allah (swt) up and down too? The difference is that your faith in Allah (swt) never goes away it just goes down. Feelings leave and never come back
    Don't depend too much on anyone in this world because even your own shadow leaves you when you are in the darkness

      No, not exactly true. You can lose enough iman to apostatized. And then you would have none at all.
      The Prophet s.a.a.w warned when he said: "You will surely follow the ways of those who came before you, in exactly the same fashion, to the point were they to enter the hole of a lizard, you too would enter it." It was asked of him, "O Messenger of Allah s.a.a.w., do you mean the Jews and Christians?" He replied, "Who else?" (Bukhari and Muslim)

        not according to some who follow matreedi aqeedah

        however in athari aqeedah we believe imaan increases and decreases

          Well yea but I was talking more about who just had the occasional iman problems not the people who spiral out of control and apostatized. I mean people who become apostates they slowly show that they are leaving Islam example that guy Zayn Malik I think he just said he doesn't consider himself Muslim that wasn't a shock because he already did things far from Islam.

            Isnt iman and belief in Allah intertwined

              You can believe in Allah and still have low imaan. You can also believe in Allah's existence without worshipping Him or while associating partners with Him. But imaan is found in the heart, speech and actions. So if you are afflicted with doubts or you don't practice as much, your imam will be effected. It's all intertwined.

                yes but imaan can be used in different contexts

                in can also mean faith and your level of faith or imaan can increase or decrease however certain sects believe it doesnt change level
                anyways is more of an aqeedah topic

                i kinda digressed

                  Yes.

                  Anway what I mean is..let's say someone comes to you (hypothetical scenario), and their deen is good, their personality matches yours, but you don't see them in that light. Do you think, well that'll come with time or what are your thoughts?

                    with time
                    after struggling for a while
                    people get less picky
                    and compromise more

                    so even with this situatiom where everythings good but for some dumb reasom they say no coz 'it dont feel right' couples yr and they wont say that no more
