“The Effect of Good Deeds on Your Faith”


All praise is due to Allah, and may exaltation and safety be granted to Muhammad, his family, his companions, and those who aid them. To proceed:

Allah, The Most High, says: “It is He who sent down tranquility into the hearts of the believers that they would increase in faith along with their [present] faith.” [Soorah al-Fath (48): 4]

Shaykh Rabee’ Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee, may Allah protect him, said: This is a clear text which proves that faith increases. Faith increases by actions of the heart and by actions of the limbs. Revere Allah in your heart and have awe of Him; your faith will increase. Perform deeds; pray, fast, give Zakah, make Hajj, be kind to your parents, command good and forbid evil, give advice for the sake of Islam and Muslims – all of these things will cause your faith to increase and increase until it is like a mountain…(1)

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
