As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmutallahi Wa Baraakaatahu,

It’s your Sunnah Infographics Family here!

We hope you are well and in the best of health and emaan…

This week we will be focusing on building your emaan and completing its foundations with one of the most famous hadiths known to the ummah, “The Hadeeth of Jibreel”.

This week, we will be sharing 1 Hadith only, as this long hadith encompasses all of the main points insha Allah.

The foundations of emaan are six.

Let's read it...

1 Hadith

Umar ibn al-Khattab reported: We were sitting with the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, one day, a man appeared with very white clothes and very black hair. There were no signs of travel on him and we did not recognize him. He sat in front of the Prophet, rested his knees by his knees, and placed his hands on his thighs.

The man said, “O Muhammad, tell me about Islam.”

The Prophet said, “Islam is to testify there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, to establish prayer, to give charity, to fast the month of Ramadan, and to perform pilgrimage to the House if a way is possible.”

The man said, “You have spoken truthfully.” We were surprised that he asked him and said he was truthful.

He said, “Tell me about faith.”

The Prophet said, “Faith is to believe in Allah, His angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Last Day, and to believe in providence, its good and its harm.”

The man said, “You have spoken truthfully. Tell me about excellence.”

The Prophet said, “Excellence is to worship Allah as if you see Him, for if you do not see Him, He surely sees you.”

The man said, “Tell me about the final hour.”

The Prophet said, “The one asked does not know more than the one asking.”

The man said, “Tell me about its signs.”

The Prophet said, “The slave-girl will give birth to her mistress and you will see barefoot, naked, and dependent shepherds compete in the construction of tall buildings.”

Then, the man returned and I remained. The Prophet said to me, “O Umar, do you know who he was?” I said, “Allah and His Messenger know best.”

The Prophet said, “Verily, he was Gabriel who came to teach you your religion.”

Reflection Point

Building our emaan throughout our life can be a challenge, as it goes up (with obedience) and down (with sinning). But knowing the foundations of emaan doesn't change!

The fact that Jibreel was sent to deliver this message to our prophet Muhammad ﷺ, shows the importance of it.

It is a must that we believe in all 6 of these foundations, without leaving out any. Anyone who does not believe in these foundations of emaan, can not be considered a Muslim.

So because of the great importance of this hadith and its significance in a person's belief and life, we have put together a comprehensive Infographic outlining each foundation with brief notes taken from ‘The Tenets of Faith by Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaimeen (رحمه الله ) for you all to benefit, learn and share insha Allah. 

As our online community grows, it becomes even more important for us to share the benefits with others. As part of our mission, our goal is to reach 1 Million Muslims around the world with our beneficial infographics!

So It’s a must that you play a role in this mission by sharing our weekly infographics with the world on Whats App, Telegram, Facebook & Other Social Media Platforms!  

Let's reach all corners of the globe and share the beauty of Islam insha Allah.

May Allah reward you and grant us all success.
