How to Boost your Imaan??

سم الله الرحمن الرحيمسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Having problems with your Faith? One day you feel like your unstoppable and the next you feel like crawling under a rock?

Well fear not I have some solutions InshAllah. Firstly we should constantly try to renew our Imaan. Our hearts are always changing so we shouldn’t expect it to be at the highest level all the time. As humans we blame others before we blame ourselves. So we tend to think why isn’t Allah putting it into our hearts? When this happens it’s a clear sign Shaytans trying to whisper in your ears (Auzza bilAllah). Don’t be of those who hand an invitation to Shaytan. Right when this happens we should ask ourselves what are we doing wrong that we don’t feel that Imaan like we usually do? What can we do to build it back again and inshAllah higher than what it was before?

Know that one of the tricks of Shaytan is procrastination by which he induces the people to delay their repentance. That’s why the scholars warned against saying, "I will tomorrow”. What makes you, Slave of Allah think you'll be alive tomorrow? Don’t leave it to ignorance and say "inshAllah ill feel like doing some good deeds to raise my Imaan later". Or inshAllah "i'll ask for forgiveness later when I feel like it". SubhanaAllah, we act as if were doing Allah a favor by worshiping Him. Indeed Allah is not in need of His Creation, His Creation is in need of him.

"Man in himself is weak; he must seek God’s grace;
without it he can do nothing; with it he can do all."
– Yusuf Abdullah

So as soon as you heart feels like something’s missing, as if something isn’t right. Things that became second nature are now becoming difficult. Your slacking on things you normally ran too.
First thing you should do is...

* Go perform wuduu and sincerely pray
* Worship in secret
* Read Quran a page or two
* Call out to Allah in supplication and ask for guidance
* Give charity or go listen to a lecture
Try fasting Mondays and Thursdays

- Anything that re boosts your imaan. It doesn’t have to be anything big, but inshAllah the reward for doing those things will be big as mountains on the Day of Judgment. And as soon as you do those things, Alhamidullah we feel that inspiration again. The heart warming feeling that when Imaan is at its highest as if no one can touch us. Just as you work for everything else in life. You have to work to build your Imaan. There shouldn't be any exceptions or excuses. With everyday comes a new struggle a new trial another day to conquer yourself. InshAllah we all take advantage of the time and energy we have right now.

  4. Jazak'Allah Khayr! Listening Quraan increase my imaan. Surah Al-Anfal,8: ''2. The believers are only those who, when Allah is mentioned, feel a fear in their hearts and when His Verses (this Qur'an) are recited unto them, they (i.e. the Verses) increase their Faith; and they put their trust in their Lord (Alone);

    3. Who perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and spend out of that We have provided them.

    4. It is they who are the believers in truth. For them are grades of dignity with their Lord, and Forgiveness and a generous provision (Paradise).''. Subhanaallah may Allah forgive us and guide us on the straight path. Ameen ya Rabi!
