Pillars of Īman (Creed and Belief) in Islam

The religion of Islam is comprised of Aqeedah (creed, faith and belief) and Sharee’ah (revealed laws). The pillars and fundamentals of Aqeedah are to believe in:

1) Allah,

2) His Angels,

3) His Books,

4) His Messengers,

5) the Last Day, and

6) Qadar (Divine Will), both its good and evil consequences.

These pillars and fundamentals are mentioned in the Book of Allah and the Sunnah (the narrations of the Prophet r) of His Messenger, may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him.

An example from the Book of Allah is the saying of Allah:

(Righteousness is not that you turn your faces towards the East or the West (in prayers), but righteous is the one who believes in Allah, the Last Day, the Angels, the Book and the Prophets.[Surah al-Baqarah (2):177].

And from the Book of Allah, with regards to Qadar, the saying of Allah:

(Verily, We have created all things by Qadar. And Our Commandment is but one, as the twinkling of an eye.)[Surah al-Qamar (54):49]

And from the Sunnah of the Prophet may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him when he was asked aboutĪman by the angel Jibreel, he replied:

Īman is to believe in Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Last Day, and to believe in Qadar, and what it brings of good or bad.” (Reported by Muslim)
