7 Muharram 1432Dec 3, 2011Aboo Iyaad @ Masjidul-Furaqaan Toronto via TelelinkExplanation of
Tree of Faith
ANALOGY IN THE QURAAN
The analogy in the Qur’aan used to describe the mu’min (believer) is thatof a firmly rooted tree.
Mentions that Allaah is the One who
this tree of faith into the heartsof his servants and waters and nurtures it with fruitful 3lm
This tree is the kalima “laa illaaha illa allaah”
Studies in eeman are from the greatest aspects of the deen to be studied
The Qur’aan and Sunnah are sufficient for the information and clarificationof this eemaan.
PARTS OF THE BOOK
1)What is eeman?2)What are the things from which eemaan extends or comes out of?3)Benefits and fruits of eeman
Surah Ibraheem 14
See you not how Allah sets forth a parable? -
A goodly word as a goodly tree,
[laa illaaha illa allaah]
whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches(reach) to the sky
(i.e. very high).
. Giving its fruit at all times, by the Leave of its Lord and Allah sets forth parables for mankind in order that they may remember.
This is the kalima of eemaan – the shahaadah
Fruits never cease to be found
This extension of this ‘tree’ will vary in every believer
WHAT IS EEMAAN?
Shaykh states that one must have a clear definition of eemaan or cannotproperly understand and will fall into faulty understandings
The sects erred in their definition of eemaan which led to the eeman intheir hearts being defective
Confusion about eemaan & kufr and what defines them
