  • Stages Of Faith In Hadith Jibreel

    Posted by Muhammad Ali on December 10, 2020 at 1:46 pm

    In Hadith e Jibreel, Hazrat Jibreel Asked three questions in regard to faith, about Islam, Iman & Ihsan.

    Are these three different stages of faith, which you upgrade over time?

    1st you convert to Islam and become Muslim.

    2nd you convert to Iman and become Momin.

    3rd you convert to Ihsan and become Mohsin.

    For example: in their punishment, Mushrikeen e Makkah was ordered to convert to Islam and perform basic Muslim duties, as it is obvious that they wouldn’t became True believer (Momin) this early.

    Iman, Islam and Ihsan are not different stages of faith instead, these are the actual requirements of faith. Iman relates to inner realization of faith and acceptance of that realization, Islam relates to external manifestation of that Iman while Ihsan being an attempt to express that Iman in the best possible way through one’s acts.

    Regarding Mushriks when it was said that Salah and Zakah are minimum acts required for their acceptance of Islam, is actually a legal requirement, not an actual criteria to judge someone’s true faith, which only God can judge. But at a human level, this demarcation was provided for them to differentiate between Muslims and Non-Muslims from a legal stand point, not from akhirah stand point.

    But as a principle, expression or external manifestation of faith will of course vary among individuals which also affects the ihsan part. Sometimes it goes high and sometimes it goes low within the same individual. It keeps varying but we as a human being have no yardstick to measure someone’s level of faith at any particular time.
