Majlis 61: "How do you believe with conviction?" - Syedna Taher Fakhruddin TUS
01 October 2021
There are so many religions, factions and viewpoints in this world. How do we attain conviction – yaqeen – in our faith? How can we be certain that our belief is correct? What is the universal scale for truth?
Generally, when we see something with our own eyes, we are sure about it. Mumineen believe in that which cannot be seen by the eyes. Our eyes cannot perceive the Creator, Heaven and Hell. How does one believe with conviction in something that is hidden?
A Mumin believes the Hadith of Rasulullah SA and the Quran that he recited over 1400 years ago. How can we be sure that these are indeed Rasulullah’s words?
Amirul Mumineen SA has said “sleep with conviction is better than prayer in doubt.” What is the deeper meaning of this saying?
What are the ultimate examples of yaqeen? What is the guidance of our Awliya’ Kiraam to see through the smoke of confusion?
Syedna TUS answers these questions in this Majlis, the 61st in the Majalis al Hikma series.
