Nigeria: Abuja Cleric Lists Actions That Increase Eeman

An Abuja-based Islamic scholar, Imam Abdulganiy Abdulraheem, has listed some acts of worship for Muslims to increase their eeman (faith).

The cleric enjoined Muslims to always ponder on Allah's creations, recite Qur'an, remember Allah, raise their supererogatory prayers (nawafil) and move away from sins to increase the level of their faith (eeman).

Imam Abdulraheem was delivering a lecture on "Factors Responsible for Increase and Decrease of Faith" at a four-day adult male seminar, organized by the Organization of Tadhamunul Muslimeen (OTM) Abuja branch.

He said the faith of Muslims began to decrease when they set unnecessary demarcation between wajib and sunnah (compulsory and supererogatory acts of worship), feel unconcerned about the recitation of Qur'an, had extreme love for luxuries, unconcerned to correct erroneous misconceptions about Islam and feel unhappy when Allah blessed their colleagues.

He noted that a strong eeman (faith) moved parts of human body towards virtues, while weak one encouraged vices.
