Faith (Eiman) is essentially to believe in certain metaphysical, unseen realities. It lends itself to two levels: verbal
attestation and heartfelt conviction.

The first level of faith – legal faith or iman al-fiqhi – is simply the verbal
affirmation in the unity of God, the messengership of Muhammad (SAW), the Hereafter, the Hellfire, the
Paradise, the Resurrection, the Day of Judgment, the Prophets, the Angels, the Divine Books, the
Revelation, etcetera. Anyone who simply professes to believe in these realities is considered a Muslim.
The vast majority of Muslims today have inherited this type of faith from their parents or the surrounding
environment.

The second level of faith – true faith or iman al-haqeeqi – deals with the heartfelt conviction. This is the
level of faith at which the believer consciously asserts and affirms his belief, beyond any shadow of doubt,
in the aforementioned metaphysical realities. It is this type of faith which is actually required of a believer
for it becomes the basis on which he will be judged in the Hereafter.

Prophet for all humanity

قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنِّي رَسُولُ اللّهِ إِلَيْكُمْ جَمِيعًا الَّذِي لَهُ مُلْكُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ لا إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ يُحْيِـي وَيُمِيتُ فَآمِنُواْ بِاللّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ النَّبِيِّ الأُمِّيِّ الَّذِي يُؤْمِنُ بِاللّهِ وَكَلِمَاتِهِ وَاتَّبِعُوهُ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ
(7:158) [Say, O Muhammad]: 'O men! I am Allah's Messenger to you all - of Him to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no god but He. He grants life and deals death. Have faith then, in Allah and in His Messenger, the ummi Prophet who believes in Allah and His words; and follow him so that you may be guided aright.'
