Pillars of Iman

Pillars of Iman (Islamic Belief)

Islam, as we explained before, is belief and Laws. We mentioned some pillars of the Laws. These pillars are the basis of Islamic Law.

As for the Islamic 'Aqeedah (creed), its pillars are: Believing in Allah, His angles, His Books, His Messengers, the Last Day and the good or bad that Qadar (predestination) brings. These pillars are mentioned in the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger.

Allah said, what translated means, (Righteousness is not that you (only) turn your faces towards the East and (or) the West (in prayers); but righteousness is (the quality) of the one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the Angels, the Book and the Prophets.) [2:177], and with regards to Qadar, (Verily, We have created all things with Qadar. And Our Commandment is but one, as the twinkling of an eye.) [54:49].

In the Sunnah, the Messenger of Allah said, in answer to Gibreal when he asked him about Iman (belief), "Iman is to Belief in Allah, His Angles, His Books, His Messengers, the Last Day, and to believe in the Qadar and what it brings of good or bad." [Muslim].
