The Quran is the word of Allah, and as such, Muslims believe it to be true and are expected to abide by its teachings. To demonstrate faith in Allah’s word, Muslims must live their lives in accordance with the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This means that their behavior should reflect the Islamic principles and values that are outlined in the Quran and Sunnah. In this article, we will explore two examples of behaviors that demonstrate a Muslim’s faith in Allah’s word.
Demonstrating Faith in Allah’s Word
Muslims demonstrate their faith in Allah’s word by following the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
