Dua To Make Us Practising Muslims In Arabic English

Our Lord! We believe in what Thou hast revealed, and we follow the Messenger. Then write us down among those who bear witness.

Surah Al-Imran – 3:53

Divide Muslims into practitioners and non-practitioners


I have questions about the terms “Muslim practitioner” and “non-Muslim practitioner”? Here in Sweden, the terms “practicing Muslim” and “non-Muslim practicing” are used in continuity. As when people receive the question, are you Muslim ?, the terms “practicing Muslim” or “non-Muslim practicing” are used. By the term “Muslim practitioner”, people mean that he / she believes in Islam “Deen”, that is to say, believe in God, the prophets, the angels, the scriptures and the day of judgment . Moreover, with “Muslim practitioner”, people think that he / she believes in the Islamic “sharia”, and that he / she follows him the most and does it, for example, he prays five times a day, quickly in Ramadan, pay zakaah and soon. By “non-practicing Muslims”, one understands by conviction that he / she believes in the Islamic “Deen”, that is to say, believe in God, the prophets, the angels, the Scriptures and the day of the judgment. Moreover, with “non-practicing Muslims”, this means that he / she especially believes in the Islamic “sharia”, but he does not follow it, for example the person, do not pray five times a day, do not fast at Ramadan, do not pay zakaah, the woman does not wear the hijab, etc. To my guests. Can a person be a “Muslim practitioner”? or “non-practicing Muslim”? Are the terms legal / correct? Who is a musli.


Praise be to Allaah.

The Muslim is one who believes in the six pillars of faith: he believes in Allah, his angels, his books, his messengers, the Last Day and the divine will, both good and bad; who pronounces the testimony of belief in Tawheed (Unity of Allah) to proclaim his submission to Allah alone, without a partner or associate; and follows the sharee’ah that was brought by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).
Anyone who does so is Muslim, with the same rights and duties as all other Muslims, unless he destroys his Islam by saying, doing or believing anything that involves kufr and demolishing the pillars of faith that are established in his religion. heart.
But the degree of faith of people varies, as does their degree of adherence to the rules of Islam and compliance with his commandments.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) told us that the faith had many branches and degrees, which means that believers would vary in their degrees according to the extent to which they would follow these branches and these levels.
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said,
“Faith has seventy or sixty branches, the best of which are said Laa ilaaha ill- Allah, and the least important is to remove something harmful from the road, and modesty is a branch of faith. Narrated by al-Bukhaari (9) and Muslim (35).


In the Holy Qur’an, people are divided into three categories: one who errs in sinning, one who is mean in his attachment to what is obligatory and who avoids what is forbidden, and the first in good deeds who regularly performs Naafil is an act of worship and strives to reach high levels. Allah says (interpretation of meaning):
“Then we gave the Book (the Koran) as an inheritance to those of Our slaves whom We have chosen (the disciples of Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم). Some of them misunderstand themselves and others follow the middle path. Among them, some are, by the permission of Allah, the greatest benefactors. This (Quran heritage) ___ is truly a great grace ”
[Faatir 35:32]
The division of people into categories according to their obedience and adherence to the laws of Allah is something real and inevitable, but calling people according to these categories may vary. But in general, these categories are acceptable and correct.
Although we do not see anything fundamentally wrong in this categorization, which includes calling people practicing or not practicing, we would like to draw attention to some of the errors associated with the type of categorization that is common today.

1. It is not permissible to limit the concept of “practice” or “to be engaged” to external matters and to apply this label only to those who have the beard and the wearing of the thobe; rather, we must pay attention to a complete adherence to Islam and its correction. ‘aqeedah (belief). A good attitude and morality are the foundation of this category. The hijabs of thobe, beard and woman are part of the teachings of Islam, but not everything; these are external indications of a religious commitment that should also be accompanied by an internal commitment. But unfortunately, this necessary balance between the inside and the outside is missing in more than one case. Therefore, it is not allowed to use these features as a weapon to classify people incorrectly. Whoever does not like a person and calls him a non-practitioner or a non-practitioner, and who loves another person and describes him as a practitioner or a hired person, intends to judge whether people are good or bad, when he is not qualified. to do it, rather may lack good character altogether.
We have seen many examples of this behavior in many societies, in which Islamic terminology is used to achieve personal gain. This is a dangerous phenomenon that must be avoided by all.

2 With regard to the use of these labels as a means of creating divisions among peoples, of creating conflicts between them and of causing disunity, it is a perverse intention that is not acceptable in the sharee unless the person described as not having been religiously committed has been. to commit extreme evil by openly and flagrantly committing acts that are unanimously recognized by Muslim scholars is wrong; such a person can be described as an uncommitted or non-practicing sinner. But we see that many people define as a religious commitment things that, in their opinion, are part of the religion but may be subject to ijjadhaad, and then they call people religious or otherwise based on the scientific view that they prefer, without paying. no attention to the real difference of scholarly opinion about it. It is also a serious mistake.
Therefore, what we believe to be the most just, the most just, and the farthest from conflict and safer before Allah describes people – when there is a legitimate need to describe more than simply calling person a Muslim – using clear and precise words and not general words. For example, it can be said: he prays regularly, or he is of good character, or he reads the Koran. These attributes are clear and specific and express the fact that is described, without presenting a personal opinion, nor bearing the responsibility for general words that may be motivated by greed or grudges. To qualify a person as “religious” or “to practice”, these are general and ambiguous terms that require a careful examination of the person described, followed by honesty in the judgment, which is rarely found in These days. And it is well known that most people’s problems result from general and ambiguous statements. And Allah knows better.
