Faith (creed) is the gate to religion. It is very important for all humans to have a confirmed belief (faith) of religion before they practice their religion. More important to find out what is the faith that is true at this juncture of history. It is normal to have lower faith when you have stresses or injustices in your life. This does not mean your are faithless. It means you reconcile your faith and know that tough times happen and are test from God. Without faith it is just stupid to practice religion. For these reasons I consider faith is extremely important:
1- If there is a God and the bible and Quran are right we are gambling our eternity if we take faith lightly or we do not consider it.
2- It will be stupid for someone to pray all these times, fast, fear God for every thing and give to charity if there is no God.
3- There is huge difference if our life in earth is our final destination or there is afterlife. I rather know now.
4- We do not have a good case in the day of judgment. I did not see anyone can show me the proof there is no God. There is no strong reasons not to believe in the prophets. No one can convince us with complete confidence that there is no afterlife. In order to do that he has to die first and come back to tell us that. I did not meet this man yet.
5- People at the time of Noah were making fun of him. Pharaoh and the Egyptians until they drowned were arrogantly arguing against God.
6- If there are intelligent people who deny God there are in the other side those intelligent people who are strongly and scientifically believe in God.
7- The case for God is strong and compelling. His straight path is good for all of us. Sometimes he interferes in history with all his power. That is why we have to understand God. It appears from the end of time prophecies he will succeed to attain his righteousness we like it or not.
8- If I am sure there is no God I would not even bother to make this blog.
9- If I am sure there is God I warn myself and others of him. That is what I am doing in my blog.
10- Thus creed is important unless you are very sure there is no God and you looked every where and you can not find him despite his great creation. Even the strong feeling of the heart of God is for you an illusion. I can not save your soul if you do not even care, but I am not loosing mine.
6:103 vision comprehendeth Him not, but He comprehendeth (all) vision. He is the Subtile, the Aware. -
لاَّ تُدْرِكُهُ الأَبْصَارُ وَهُوَ يُدْرِكُ الأَبْصَارَ وَهُوَ اللَّطِيفُ الْخَبِيرُ (6:103)
13:28 Who have believed and whose hearts have rest in the remembrance of Allah. Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest! -
الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُم بِذِكْرِ اللّهِ أَلاَ بِذِكْرِ اللّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ (13:28)
2:7 Allah hath sealed their hearing and their hearts, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom. -خَتَمَ اللّهُ عَلَى قُلُوبِهمْ وَعَلَى سَمْعِهِمْ وَعَلَى أَبْصَارِهِمْ غِشَاوَةٌ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عظِيمٌ (2:7)
