NAIJ.com came across a post shared by a man who is worried over whether he is losing his faith in Islam and leaning towards Atheism.
According to the post, the man who identified himself as Abdelkabir, said he was scared that he was fast losing his Islamic faith.
Even though he continues to observe some Islamic practices, he said he found himself believing more in science than he believed in the teachings of Islam.
He also chalked it down to 'Satan trying to confuse him' and trying to turn him into an Atheist.
Sharing the post, Abdelkabir wrote:
Peace be upon you my brothers and sisters in Islam, let me go straight to the point. Please I need your help and guidance because I am losing my faith day by day, I begin to see more reality in science than religion. Sometimes it will seems to me like I am just wasting my time over religion, I don't know whether it is Satan that is trying to confuse me, but every day I will be having unnecessary thought.
Note: I have positive and negative side of me.
I don't skip my five daily prayers, and I always pray 3-4 out of the 5 in congregation, I hardly miss Jum'mat congregational prayer, I don't "fornicate" in any way, I always give out sadaqah to the needy, I neither drink nor smoke.
Negative side of me:
I don't recite the Quran often in fact since after Ramadan I rarely lay my hands on the quran, I don't usually fast except during Ramadan, clubbing is now part of me, I rarely pray subhi prayer in congregation.
But the problem is whenever I pray the immann is not there, I hardly feel the connection between me and my God, please help my faith is just dropping on daily basis.
My dad is so westernized that he doesn't care about religion, while my mom is from a well known religious family in her home state. I think I took after my dad. Please I need help, it's just like I am fast becoming an Atheist."
What would you advise him to do?
