Definition of Imaan (Faith) Ibn Abee Zayd Al-Qirwaanee [386H]

Definition of Imaan (Faith) Ibn Abee Zayd Al-Qirwaanee Al-Maalikee (d.386H) said:

“Belief is:
    (1) a statement of the tongue and
    (2) sincerity of the heart and
    (3) actions of the limbs.


It increases with the increase of good deeds and decreases due to its decrease. So it will increase and decrease due to that (one’s deeds).

Faith is not complete by the statement of the tongue except with actions.

Both statement of the tongue and actions are not complete except with intention.

Statement of the tongue, actions and intentions are not complete unless they are in accordance with the sunnah.”

[Muqadimatul Qirwaaniyyah]
The Prophet ﷺ said:

“Make things easy and do not make things difficult. Give glad tidings and do not repel people..”
