What does the Holy Quran say about Iman?

The truth is that we all experience the ups and downs of Iman at some point in our lives. But most importantly, remember that Allah does not always expect us to be perfect. In fact, He wants us to do our best.

Striving to be a better Muslim by making small changes in our lives is a result in itself. So, when we see our Iman weakening, let’s start by taking these four small steps that bring us closer to Almighty Allah, as defined in the Holy Quran.

Believe in Allah’s mercy

ٱللَّهُ وَلِىُّ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ يُخْرِجُهُم مِّنَ ٱلظُّلُمَـٰتِ إِلَى ٱلنُّورِ ۖ وَٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوٓا۟ أَوْلِيَآؤُهُمُ ٱلطَّـٰغُوتُ يُخْرِجُونَهُم مِّنَ ٱلنُّورِ إِلَى ٱلظُّلُمَـٰتِ ۗ أُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ أَصْحَـٰبُ ٱلنَّارِ ۖ هُمْ فِيهَا خَـٰلِدُونَ

Meaning: Allah is the Protector of the believers. He leads them from darkness to light. As for the unbelievers, their guardians are false Gods who lead them from light to darkness. They will be fire dwellers. You will be there forever. Surah Al-Baqarah: 257


وَأَقِيمُوا۟ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتُوا۟ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ وَٱرْكَعُوا۟ مَعَ ٱلرَّٰكِعِينَ

Meaning: And perform prayer and give Zakat and bow with those who bow in worship and compliance. Surah Al-Baqarah: 43

Make Dua

وَقَالَ رَبُّكُمُ ٱدْعُونِىٓ أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ ۚ إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِى سَيَدْخُلُونَ جَهَنَّمَ دَاخِرِينَ

Meaning: And your Lord says, “Call Me and I will answer to you.” Surah Ghafir: 60

Give Charity

ٱلَّذِينَ يُنفِقُونَ أَمْوَٰلَهُم بِٱلَّيْلِ وَٱلنَّهَارِ سِرًّا وَعَلَانِيَةً فَلَهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ وَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ

Meaning: Those who spend their wealth secretly and openly in the way of Allah, day or night, will reward the Lord. And fear does not touch them, nor do they grieve. Surah Al-Baqarah: 274
