As Muslims, we all believe in Allah. We believe in His Existence and His Dominion over everything. But there is another aspect of our belief in Allah that we need to understand. This is not just the belief in Him, but the belief that we have about Him. This is something that many of us are very lackadaisical in terms of when it comes to our studies. So, what we want to do in this section is explain why this issue is so important.
The effects of true belief cause or bring about certain actions. For example, if you believe that there is someone or something outside of your home that will severely harm you and your family, you will refrain from going outside. As a matter of fact, you will do all that you can to prevent your loved ones from leaving the premises. This is when your true belief does. It brings about and causes action.
Just like if you were sure that if you walked five miles you will receive $5,000,000, but the condition is that you walk all five miles. Even if you just got done working an 18 hour shift and you’re dead tired, if you truly belief that without a doubt you will receive this reward. 9 times out of 10 you will get up and walk to get that money. Again, this is how a true belief in anything affects an individual. It causes them to get in certain ways and to refrain from certain things.
This is the effect that our belief in Allah and about Him should do to us.
