By Izzedine Boozid

My faith; the essence of my being,
Marvelous emotion churning in ones soul,
Close companions a sweet fragrance,
Ones in the distance like coal,

Theology the mother of purpose,
Giving birth to ambition,

Hadith 12: Control Lust by Subservient to the Guidance

Hadith 12: Lust

It is related by Abdullah bin Amr that the Messenger of Allah said:

“None of you can become a Believer unless his lusts become subservient to the guidance I have brought.” (Sharah us-Sunnah)

Commentary: It shows that the state of true Faith and its spiritual blessings can be gained when worldly inclinations and carnal appetites are controlled and governed by the Prophet’s guidance.

The entire order of good and evil is based upon Hawa [lust] and Huda [Guidance]. Man’s (woman)* success or failure, good fortune or ill-luck, is related to them. All wickedness and wrong-doing ensures from the lustful dictates of the flesh in the same way as every virtue originates from abiding by the guidance brought by the Prophets (Peace be upon them all).

The state of genuine Faith can, thus, be attained only by subordinating the propensities of the self to heavenly instruction and whoever become a slave to lust and cares nothing for Prophetic guidance destroys the very purpose of Faith with his own hands.

Hadith 7: Character Is The Base of Faith

Hadith 7: Character is the base of faith

It is related by Abu Hurairah that the Messenger of Allah said:

Among the Muslims more perfect in Faith is he whose manners are better.

Commentary: Perfection in Faith depends on good manners and noble qualities of mind and character. Thus, a person will be as perfect in Faith as his moral disposition is praiseworthy. Or, we might say, good moral qualities are the natural outcome of perfection in Faith. It cannot be that a person is blessed with the reality of Faith and yet his morals remain imperfect.

Hadith 1: What is Faith


Hadith: What is Faith?

It is narrated by Abu Umamah that a person asked the Messenger of Allah, “What is Faith?” He said:

“If you feel pleasure at a good act that you do and pain and sorrow at an evil act, you are a truthful Believers.” (Masnad Ahmed)

Commentary: It shows that one of the distinctive signs of Faith is that when a person performs a noble deed he (she) feels joy in his heart at it, and when he commits a wicked deed, it makes him sad. As long as this subjective sense of right and wrong is present in a man it should be supposed that the spirit of Faith is alive within him and this feeling is its fruit and outcome.
