Guest posted a topic in General Islamic DiscussionAssalamualekum all brothers and sisters. I need understanding on this topic from especially scholars who can provide sufficient evidence on the argument: “Can iblis deceive just souls or just human or both in any form?” As its per in, surah A'raf, two verses have been interpreted as speaking of this realm: "And [remember] when your Lord took from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their descendants and made them bear witness over themselves, [He said to them,] "Am I not your Lord?" They said," Yes indeed! We bear witness." [This,] lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection," (7:173)Nor say, ‘It was our forefathers who had associated others ˹with Allah in worship˺ and we, as their descendants, followed in their footsteps. Will you then destroy us for the falsehood they invented?’” This question brings me into, how was it decided that we are born into a family who arent Muslims(Shia or Sunni), Christian, Jew, Hindu or any other?
As-salamu alaykum brothers and sisters, I am a (very) new revert to Islam. I am also a Westerner, thoroughly raised in Western culture & a liturgical christian church. As a result, this is all quite new to me although very natural feeling when I pray or read the Quran. I have already become much better at offering my five daily prayers, but I am wondering if there is anything else that I ought to be working on learning + practicing right now. I have ordered a set of tasbih because I used to say the rosary every night as a Christian and I want to continue to have that sort of "ritual" because it's familiar to me and quiets my soul when I am stressed or nervous, so I am going to learn to say zikr (in Arabic of course). Any suggestions on ways to deepen my faith would be a huge help, especially with ways to memorize portions of the Quran (I have only committed Surah Ikhlas to memory thusfar for saying my prayers).
