  • Is there a difference between a muslim and a mu'min?

    One means believer and other means submitter.
    Narrated by Anas ibn Malik RA: Allah's Messenger :saw: said. "When a woman observes the five times of prayer, fasts during Ramadan, preserves her chastity and obeys her husband, she may enter by any of the gates of Paradise she wishes."

      :salams (got from another forum) I'm a layman!

      "One day while we were sitting with the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) there appeared before us a man whose clothes were exceedingly white and whose hair was exceedingly black; no signs of journey were to be seen on him and none of us knew him.

      He walked up and sat down in front of the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), with his knees touching against the Prophet’s (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and placing the palms of his hands on his thighs he said: “O Muhammad, tell me about Islaam.”

      The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “Islaam is to testify that there is no deity worthy of worship but Allaah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah, to perform prayers, to give Zakaah, to fast in Ramadaan, and to make the pilgrimage to the House if you are able to do so.”
      He said: “You have spoken rightly”; and we were amazed at him asking him and saying that he had spoken rightly.

      He (the man) said: “Tell me about Iman (Eemaan).”
      He (the Prophet, sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “It is to believe in Allaah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, and the Last Day, and to believe in divine destiny (qadr), both the good and the evil of it.”
      He said: “You have spoken rightly.”

      He (the man) said: “Then tell me about Ihsaan.”
      He (the Prophet, sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “It is to worship Allaah as though you see Him, and if you do not see Him, then (knowing that) truly He sees you.”

      He said: “Then tell me about the Hour.”
      He said: “The one questioned about it knows no better than the questioner.”

      He said: “Then tell me about its signs.”
      He said: “That the slave-girl will give birth to her mistress, and that you will see barefooted, naked destitute shepherds competing in constructing lofty buildings.”

      Then he (the man) left, and I stayed for a time. The he (the Prophet, sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “O `Umar, do you know who the questioner was?”
      I said: “Allaah and His Messenger know best.”
      He said: “It was Jibreel [Gabriel], who came to teach you your religion.”


      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      From this hadith, we, Muslims, understand that there are 3 levels of faith in our religion:
      Level 1. Islam (submission to Allah)
      Level 2. Imaan (faith)
      Level 3. Ihsaan (perfection)

      Level 1. Islam

      Islam simply means submission (to Allah).
      There are 5 pillars of Islam:

      1. Syahada, testify that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.
      2. Salah, pray the 5 obligatory prayers a day
      3. Zakah, give charity to the needy
      4. Shaum, fast in Ramadhan (obligatory), for 29 or 30 days in a year.
      5. Hajj, do the pilgrimage to Mekkah, at least once in a lifetime for those who are able to do it (it is not obligatory for those are not able).

      Those who do these 5 pillars are called Muslim.


      Level 2. Imaan

      Imaan means faith or belief
      There 6 pillars of Imaan:
      1. Believe in Allah
      2. Believe in His Angels
      3. Believe in His Books (Qur'an, the original Injeel, the original Torah, Zabur etc.)
      4. Believe in His Messengers, from Prophet Adam to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon them all.
      5. Believe in the Last Day
      6. Believe in the divine destiny (qadr)

      And those who do these are called Mu'min.


      Level 3. Ihsaan

      Ihsaan means perfection. There are 2 levels of Ihsaan:
      1. Worshipping Allah as though we see Him. This is the highest level of Ihsaan.
      2. Being aware that Allah always sees what we do even though we cannot see Him.

      Those who reach the levels of Ihsaan are called Muhsin.

      This is the highest level in Islam, the level of perfection. A Muhsin has purified his/her intention. He/She does everything and anything to please Allah only.

        In the Quran they are used interchangably, and differently.

        But generally speaking a mu'min is a person who has submitted with their heart whilst a muslim is the one who has outwardly submitted(with their tongue).

        Allah says:

        قالت الأعراب آمنا قل لم تؤمنوا و لكن قولوا أسلمنا و لما يدخل الإيمان في قلوبكم

        The Bedouins say: We have believed, say 'No you haven't believed but rather say, We have submitted(outwardly) and Imaan has not yet entered their hearts.

        This is in reference to some new muslims.

          Muslim commits sins
          Mumin runs away from sins

              Is a Muslim granted jannah? Or only a mu'min? Serious question.

                  No one is granted Jannah.

                    By "granted" I meant admitted to jannah based on Allah's (SAW) mercy.

                      Both. Since one simply has to say and they are granted Jannah

                      The Prophet :saw: said: "Whoever says: there is no god but Allah enters Paradise."

                      The Prophet :saw: said: "Whoever says there is no god but Allah enters Paradise even if he commits adultery and even if he steals (i.e. even if he commits great sins)."

                      The Prophet :saw: said: "Whoever witnesses that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's Messenger, Allah forbids the Fire from touching him." Ibn Hajar in Fath al-Bari, book of riqaq ch. 14 (1989 ed. 11:324) says that the hadiths of "Allah forbids the Fire from touching him" are even more explicit than those of "Allah will enter him into Paradise" in establishing that the one who declares Allah's Oneness is saved even if he does not heed the orders and the prohibitions.


                      So one does not have to be a Mumin to enter into Jannah.
