The Essence of Faith

By • Jul 29th, 2012 • Category: Islam, Lectures

Faith is the bedrock of religious life. Dedication to God is typically measure by the strength on one’s faith. However, ‘faith’ means different things to different people. Sometimes it is viewed as subscribing to a set of theological beliefs (e.g., God exists), or unwavering self-assurance about the truth of certain theological propositions. And, faith is sometimes viewed in terms of ‘good’ deeds, where the behavior of a person of faith is guided by compassion and selflessness.

In this lecture we will explore the meaning and essence of faith from the perspective of Islam’s sacred scripture (the Quran).
