Salam guys !!!!!

A week ago one of my classmate has told me he is atheist and he doesn't believe on God but he wants some proves so he can start believing on God but I didn't had any prove to tell him but I told him our traditional dialogues for the prove of God but he didn't believed and that conversation also made me confused and made a doubt about god in my heart and here I tell you guys that I pray 5 times a day and a little bit active in other religious stuff so thats why it was very important for me to know about the existence of God because I almost depend my life on God and I had strong hope and I felt sprituality in my worship but now ..... so I started overthinking about the existence of God and how he was made and I also admit my mistake here that I start thinking about the existence of God and the doubt become stronger and the doubt still exist in my heart but I stop thinking about it but that doubt brought me to this disorder of depersonalisation and derealization . And I m not sure that do I have the exact same disorder but most of symptoms are similar to it and some one who knows about it and if someone can help me then plz give me some response but please do not response if you don't know about this disorder because my condition has also related to this confusion ..... so please help me it's getting worse and if someone can help me ,can also ask everything from me in detail because my confusion so complex and cannot be understood easily. So please help me I beg you guys I don't have any hope I only pray from my god for my forgiveness and mercy I am the only son of my parents and  I love them so much and I chose this forum because this is very compatible for my both confusions so please answer me if someone can help me and wait for my response.

Salaams,

I'm surprised why you're so much worried! You don't need to worry! It's a simple doubt, and if you don't know, doubts are the gate toward realization and truth, but only if you treat them appropriately.

When you doubt, you shouldn't leave your doubt remain in your heart unanswered, because if you do so, it may get stronger and stronger everyday, and then it will be difficult to remove it.

But if you look for the answer, you're going to acquire a state of peace and tranquility once you find the answer. So doubts can lead to firm knowledge as well as pleasing tranquility.

The existence of God is so much clear that Allah s,w,t, doesn't bring any argument in the Qur'an to prove it. He says:

ْ أَ فِي اللَّهِ شَكٌّ فاطِرِ السَّماواتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ يَدْعُوكُمْ لِيَغْفِرَ لَكُمْ مِنْ ذُنُوبِكُمْ

"Is there any doubt about Allah, the originator of the heavens and the earth?! He calls you to forgive you a part of your sins" [Qur'an 14:10]

There are thousand of books on the existence of God, read them and if you had any questions come back here.

Peace!

aoa Bro i am going through same situation 'depersonalization / derealization'
“I feel like a kafir.  I feel like whatever I do to get closer to Allah, I get pushed away.  The more good deeds I do, the harder it is to feel a connection to Allah.  I just don’t feel like I believe, what is wrong with me, and what can I do to stop it?”
 
Yes, I am dealing with these thoughts and feelings as well.  No Sheikh Imam, it is not just as simple as Shaitan whispering thoughts and we believe them. There is more complication to the situation then meets the eye.  You can’t relate to it, because you aren’t suffering with the condition that I am.
 
It is a complicated feeling of disbelief as if it has been forced onto you, even though you don’t want it.  The waswaas feels like it’s all you, and the thoughts are yours completely, and they are embedded in your heart, so that is the reality of who you really are at heart, even though you may do actions.  You try to do all the good deeds in the world, but the dark reality of your heart remains the same, and Allah knows what’s in the hearts.
 
I have stressed and worried myself to impairment and disability over this issue of iman and believing and avoiding kufr and disbelief.  It has caused me years of agony and suffering, and it has not increased my love of Allah one bit.  It has not brought me closer to my Creator Once
 
 
So why is it then that i feel like a disbeliever, when I’m trying my utmost best to be a sincere slave to Allah and to do good deeds?  Why am I feeling this way?  What’s the explanation?  I  need one, because this anxiety about my iman is driving me insane.
 
Important question:  Why is it that I never felt this way when I wasn’t suffering from an anxiety disorder?  I mean I was born and raised muslim, and I wasn’t even practicing Islam like I am now.  I was just your average american born muslim, not knowing too much about the religion.
 
Why is it that AFTER I developed my severe anxiety symptoms and disorder, that I am always questioning whether or not I’m a true Muslim.
 
I was actively learning and practicing Islam several years before I developed this bizzarre paranoia that I don’t really believe in my heart.  If waswaas of Shaitan is the sole explanation for why I am feeling this way, then why didn’t I feel this way before when I was still practicing alot and developed my full blown anxiety disorder?
 
I have a very logical answer to this, after years of suffering through this agony of worrying if I’m a believer or not.
 
Alternate RealityIt’s called Depersonalization.   A symptom of anxiety and stress, where you feel disconnected from reality.  Where you feel like you aren’t youreself.  Where you feel like you’re disconnected from your mind and body.  Where you feel that you’re living somebody else’s life.  Where you feel like your hand doesn’t really belong to you.  Where you feel like your family members are complete strangers to you, even though you grew up with them.  Where you feel like…… You’re not really a  believer, even though you always wanted to be.
 
Consider what this one guy wrote on this thread on questioning religion.
 

After this condition, it was like my faith, spirituality was stripped from me. Like forced Atheism.
 
He’s a Christian saying that.  Can you relate to that?  For sure I feel the same way.
 
Is Shaitan involved?  Yes of course he is.  He wants you to become a disbeliever no doubt.  But it’s not that simple as that as I mentioned.  He has cunningly carved out and crafted an attractive playing ground for waswaas.  Consider it waswaas on steriods.  It is Shaitan’s chance to say something that is already matching with  how you feel about things.  So it makes it that much easier for you to buy into it.
 
Let’s start to find relief in the fact that we are dealing with a symptom of stress that is causing us to feel like true disbelievers.  And let’s start truly entrusting our religion and deen to Al-Wakeel; the One who takes care of us and looks after our affairs . and please dont stop praying , Read Quran what Allah is saying ponder on the words of Quran , islam is scientifically proved , there are many proofs of existence of Allah only if you ponder on Allah's signs.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
 
Philosophers and theologians throughout history have devised a number of rational arguments for the existence of the Creator, such as the ontological argument. However, many of these arguments fall short because human reasoning is itself limited. Rather, the proper way to demonstrate the existence of the Creator is to refer to the arguments mentioned in the Quran: that the universe must necessarily have a Creator, that signs in nature point to the Creator’s design, and that human instinct accepts the existence of the Creator.
 
The universe must necessarily have a Creator because it is impossible for the universe to have created itself or to have been created by nothing. Therefore, there must have been a Creator who provided the initial force and energy needed to set the universe in motion. This is sometimes called the cosmological argument.
 
Allah said:
 

أَمْ خُلِقُوا مِنْ غَيْرِ شَيْءٍ أَمْ هُمُ الْخَالِقُونَ أَمْ خَلَقُوا السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ ۚ بَل لَّا يُوقِنُونَ
 
Were they created by nothing, or were they the creators of themselves? Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Rather, they are not certain.
 
Surah At-Tur 52:35-36
 
Newton’s first law of motion tells us that bodies at rest will stay at rest unless a force acts upon them. Therefore, the initiation of the universe required force and energy to originally set it in motion. This force and energy is the work of Allah the Exalted, the Creator. This argument was used by Imam Abu Hanifa to confound the atheists who challenged him.
 
Ibn Abu Al-‘Izz reported: It is said that Abu Hanifa, may Allah have mercy on him, was approached by some speculative theologians who intended to discuss with him the oneness of Allah’s Lordship. He said, “Before we discuss this question, tell me what you think about a boat in the Euphrates which goes to shore, loads itself with food and other things, then returns, anchors and unloads all by itself, without anyone sailing or controlling it?” They said, “This is impossible.” Abu Hanifa said:
 

إِذَا كَانَ هَذَا مُحَالًا فِي سَفِينَةٍ فَكَيْفَ فِي هَذَا الْعَالَمِ كُلِّهِ عُلْوِهِ وَسُفْلِهِ
 
If it is impossible with a boat, then how is it possible for the world, in all its vastness, to move by itself?
 
Source: Sharh Aqidah At-Tahawi 35
 
This argument agrees with sound reasoning and has been accepted by philosophers and theologians across different religions through history. The argument is so strong that Jubair bin Mut’im said that after he had recited these verses:
 

كَادَ قَلْبِي أَنْ يَطِيرَ
 
I felt my heart was about to fly.
 
Source: Sahih Bukhari 4573, Grade: Sahih
 
Allah’s saying, “Rather, they are not certain,” refers to the uncertainty inherent in atheist philosophy. In fact, the preeminent “new atheist” philosopher Richard Dawkins admitted in debate that he cannot be certain Allah does not exist. This is because atheism is not based upon any evidence, but rather ignorance of the truth as known through sound reasoning and human nature.
 
Allah said:
 

وَقَالُوا مَا هِيَ إِلَّا حَيَاتُنَا الدُّنْيَا نَمُوتُ وَنَحْيَا وَمَا يُهْلِكُنَا إِلَّا الدَّهْرُ ۚ وَمَا لَهُم بِذَٰلِكَ مِنْ عِلْمٍ ۖ إِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا يَظُنُّونَ
 
They say: There is nothing but our worldly life, and we live and die and nothing destroys us but time. They have no knowledge, but rather they only speculate.
 
Surah Al-Jathiyah 45:24
 
Next, Allah calls our attention to observe the various signs (ayat) in nature that demonstrate His power and design. This is sometimes called the teleological argument.
 
Allah said:
 

إِنَّ فِي اخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ وَمَا خَلَقَ اللَّهُ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَّقُونَ
 
Verily, in the alternation of the night and the day and in what Allah has created in the heavens and the earth are signs for a people who would be righteous.
 
Surah Yunus 10:6
 
And Allah said:
 

أَلَمْ يَرَوْا أَنَّا جَعَلْنَا اللَّيْلَ لِيَسْكُنُوا فِيهِ وَالنَّهَارَ مُبْصِرًا ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ
 
Do they not see that We made the night for resting therein and the day giving sight? Verily, in that are signs for a people who believe.
 
Surah An-Naml 27:86
 
And Allah said:
 

أَلَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ أَنزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَأَخْرَجْنَا بِهِ ثَمَرَاتٍ مُّخْتَلِفًا أَلْوَانُهَا ۚ وَمِنَ الْجِبَالِ جُدَدٌ بِيضٌ وَحُمْرٌ مُّخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهَا وَغَرَابِيبُ سُودٌ وَمِنَ النَّاسِ وَالدَّوَابِّ وَالْأَنْعَامِ مُخْتَلِفٌ أَلْوَانُهُ كَذَٰلِكَ
 
Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby fruits of varying colors? And in the mountains are tracts, white and red of varying shades and black, and among people and moving creatures and grazing livestock are various colors similarly.
 
Surah Fatir 35:27-28
 
And Allah said:
 

فَلْيَنظُرِ الْإِنسَانُ إِلَىٰ طَعَامِهِ أَنَّا صَبَبْنَا الْمَاءَ صَبًّا ثُمَّ شَقَقْنَا الْأَرْضَ شَقًّا فَأَنبَتْنَا فِيهَا حَبًّا وَعِنَبًا وَقَضْبًا وَزَيْتُونًا وَنَخْلًا وَحَدَائِقَ غُلْبًا وَفَاكِهَةً وَأَبًّا مَّتَاعًا لَّكُمْ وَلِأَنْعَامِكُمْ
 
Then let mankind look at his food, how We poured down water in torrents, then We broke open the earth, splitting it with sprouts, and caused to grow within it grain, and grapes and herbage, and olive and palm trees, and gardens of dense shrubbery, and fruit and grass as enjoyment for you and your grazing livestock.
 
Surah Abasa 80:24-32
 
And Allah said:
 

وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن سُلَالَةٍ مِّن طِينٍ ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاهُ نُطْفَةً فِي قَرَارٍ مَّكِينٍ ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَةَ عِظَامًا فَكَسَوْنَا الْعِظَامَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنشَأْنَاهُ خَلْقًا آخَرَ ۚ فَتَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَ
 
Certainly did We create man from an extract of clay. Then We placed him as a sperm-drop in a firm lodging. Then We made the sperm-drop into a clinging clot, and We made the clot into a lump of flesh, and We made bones from the lump, and We covered the bones with flesh; then We developed him into another creation. So blessed is Allah, the best of creators.
 
Surah Al-Muminun 23:12-14
 
Thus, from the sun and the moon in the heavens, to the creatures on the earth, to the innermost parts of the human being – all of these point to the power and deliberate design of the Creator. It is human instinct (fitrah) to recognize these signs as evidence of the Creator’s purpose.
 
Allah said:
 

إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لَآيَاتٍ لِّأُولِي الْأَلْبَابِ الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَٰذَا بَاطِلًا سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ
 
Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding, who remember Allah while standing or sitting or lying on their sides and give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth, saying: Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You above such a thing, then protect us from the punishment of the Fire.
 
Surah Ali Imran 3:190-191
 
And Allah said:
 

سَنُرِيهِمْ آيَاتِنَا فِي الْآفَاقِ وَفِي أَنفُسِهِمْ حَتَّىٰ يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمْ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ ۗ أَوَلَمْ يَكْفِ بِرَبِّكَ أَنَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيدٌ
 
We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a witness?
 
Surah Fussilat 41:53
 
A classical formulation of this argument is mentioned by Ibn Kathir. Once a desert Arab was asked about the evidence of Allah’s existence, so he responded:
 

يَا سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ الْبَعْرَةَ لَتَدُلُّ عَلَى الْبَعِيرِ وَإِنَّ أَثَرَ الْأَقْدَامِ لَتَدُلُّ عَلَى الْمَسِيرِ فَسَمَاءٌ ذَاتُ أَبْرَاجٍ وَأَرْضٌ ذَاتُ فِجَاجٍ وَبِحَارٌ ذَاتُ أَمْوَاجٍ أَلَا يَدُلُّ ذَلِكَ عَلَى وُجُودِ اللَّطِيفِ الْخَبِيرِ
 
Glory be to Allah! The camel’s dung testifies to the existence of the camel, and the track testifies to the fact that someone was walking. A sky that holds the stars, a land that has fairways and a sea that has waves? Does not all of this testify to the existence of the Most Kind, Most Knowledgeable?
 
Source: Tafseer Ibn Kathir, verse 2:21
 
Ibn Kathir further comments:
 

وَكَذَلِكَ هَذِهِ الْأَنْهَارُ السَّارِحَةُ مِنْ قُطْرٍ إِلَى قُطْرٍ لِمَنَافِعِ الْعِبَادِ وَمَا ذَرَأَ فِي الْأَرْضِ مِنَ الْحَيَوَانَاتِ الْمُتَنَوِّعَةِ وَالنَّبَاتِ الْمُخْتَلِفِ الطُّعُومِ وَالْأَرَايِيحِ وَالْأَشْكَالِ وَالْأَلْوَانِ مَعَ اتِّحَادِ طَبِيعَةِ التُّرْبَةِ وَالْمَاءِ عَلِمَ وُجُودَ الصَّانِعِ وَقُدْرَتَهُ الْعَظِيمَةَ وَحِكْمَتَهُ وَرَحْمَتَهُ بِخَلْقِهِ وَلُطْفَهُ بِهِمْ وَإِحْسَانَهُ إِلَيْهِمْ وَبِرَّهُ بِهِمْ لَا إِلَهَ غَيْرُهُ وَلَا رَبَّ سِوَاهُ عَلَيْهِ تَوَكَّلْتُ وَإِلَيْهِ أُنِيبُ وَالْآيَاتُ فِي الْقُرْآنِ الدَّالَّةُ عَلَى هَذَا الْمَقَامِ كَثِيرَةٌ جِدًّا
 
Whoever thinks about the running rivers that travel from area to area bringing benefit, whoever ponders over what Allah has created on earth; various animals and plants of different tastes, scents, shapes and colors that are a result of unity between land and water. Whoever thinks about all of this then he will realize that these facts testify to the existence of the Creator, His perfect ability, wisdom, mercy, kindness, generosity and His overall compassion for His creation. There is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, nor is there a Lord besides Him, upon Him we rely and to Him we turn in repentance. There are numerous verses in the Quran on this subject.
 
Moreover, the vast majority of human beings throughout history and across religious traditions have affirmed the existence of the Almighty Creator. It is simply part of our nature to recognize these signs because Allah has created us this way.
 
Allah said:
 

فَأَقِمْ وَجْهَكَ لِلدِّينِ حَنِيفًا ۚ فِطْرَتَ اللَّهِ الَّتِي فَطَرَ النَّاسَ عَلَيْهَا ۚ لَا تَبْدِيلَ لِخَلْقِ اللَّهِ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ الدِّينُ الْقَيِّمُ وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
 
So direct your face toward the religion, inclining to truth. Adhere to the nature of Allah upon which He has created all people. No change should there be in the creation of Allah. That is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know.
 
Surah Ar-Rum 30:30
 
Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:
 

مَا مِنْ مَوْلُودٍ إِلَّا يُولَدُ عَلَى الْفِطْرَةِ
 
No one is born except they are upon natural instinct.
 
Source: Sahih Muslim 2658, Grade: Sahih
 
Allah said:
 

وَلَئِن سَأَلْتَهُم مَّنْ خَلَقَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ لَيَقُولُنَّ اللَّهُ ۚ قُلِ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ۚ بَلْ أَكْثَرُهُمْ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
 
If you asked them: Who created the heavens and earth? They would surely say: Allah. Say: All praise is due to Allah, but most of them do not know.
 
Surah Luqman 31:25
 
And Allah said:
 

وَلَئِن سَأَلْتَهُم مَّنْ خَلَقَهُمْ لَيَقُولُنَّ اللَّهُ ۖ فَأَنَّىٰ يُؤْفَكُونَ
 
If you asked them who created them, they would surely say: Allah. So how are they deluded?
 
Surah Az-Zukhruf 43:87
 
For this reason, every human being will call out to Allah during times of calamity, as it is an innate instinct to turn to the Creator in times of distress. Allah said:
 

قُلْ مَن يُنَجِّيكُم مِّن ظُلُمَاتِ الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ تَدْعُونَهُ تَضَرُّعًا وَخُفْيَةً لَّئِنْ أَنجَانَا مِنْ هَٰذِهِ لَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الشَّاكِرِينَ قُلِ اللَّهُ يُنَجِّيكُم مِّنْهَا وَمِن كُلِّ كَرْبٍ ثُمَّ أَنتُمْ تُشْرِكُونَ
 
Say: Who rescues you from the darkness of the land and sea when you call upon Him imploring aloud and privately: If He should save us from this crisis, we will surely be among the thankful. Say: It is Allah who saves you from it and from every distress, yet you still associate others with Him.
 
Surah Al-An’am 6:63-64
 
And Allah said:
 

وَإِذَا مَسَّكُمُ الضُّرُّ فِي الْبَحْرِ ضَلَّ مَن تَدْعُونَ إِلَّا إِيَّاهُ ۖ فَلَمَّا نَجَّاكُمْ إِلَى الْبَرِّ أَعْرَضْتُمْ ۚ وَكَانَ الْإِنسَانُ كَفُورًا
 
When adversity touches you at sea, lost are all those you invoke except for Him. But when He delivers you to the land, you turn away from Him. Ever is man ungrateful.
 
Surah Al-Isra 17:67
 
And Allah said:
 

فَإِذَا رَكِبُوا فِي الْفُلْكِ دَعَوُا اللَّهَ مُخْلِصِينَ لَهُ الدِّينَ فَلَمَّا نَجَّاهُمْ إِلَى الْبَرِّ إِذَا هُمْ يُشْرِكُونَ
 
When they board a ship, they supplicate Allah, being sincere to Him in religion. But when He delivers them to the land, at once they associate others with Him.
 
Surah Al-Ankabut 29:65
 
Human nature also recognizes objective moral values shared across religions and cultures throughout time, known to philosophers as “natural law.” This is sometimes called the moral argument.
 
Wabisa ibn Ma’bad Al-Asadi reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said to him:
 

جِئْتَ تَسْأَلُ عَنْ الْبِرِّ وَالْإِثْمِ
 
Have you come to ask about righteousness and sin?
 
I said, “Yes.” So the Prophet brought his fingers together and struck his chest three times, saying:
 

اسْتَفْتِ نَفْسَكَ اسْتَفْتِ قَلْبَكَ يَا وَابِصَةُ ثَلَاثًا الْبِرُّ مَا اطْمَأَنَّتْ إِلَيْهِ النَّفْسُ وَاطْمَأَنَّ إِلَيْهِ الْقَلْبُ وَالْإِثْمُ مَا حَاكَ فِي النَّفْسِ وَتَرَدَّدَ فِي الصَّدْرِ وَإِنْ أَفْتَاكَ النَّاسُ وَأَفْتَوْكَ
 
Consult your soul, consult your heart, O Wabisa. Righteousness is what is satisfying to your soul and your heart, and sin is what wavers in your soul and causes hesitancy in your chest, even if the people give you a judgment, and again give you a judgment.
 
Source: Sunan Ad-Darimi 2533, Grade: Hasan
 
It might asked why some people disbelieve in the Creator if sound human nature inclines toward faith. The answer is that Allah has created life as a test involving various influences such as the temptations of Satan and selfish desires. Although human nature inclines toward faith, a person must ultimately choose to pursue faith in the Creator over the influences of unbelief.
 
Iyad ibn Himar reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:
 

وَإِنِّي خَلَقْتُ عِبَادِي حُنَفَاءَ كُلَّهُمْ وَإِنَّهُمْ أَتَتْهُمْ الشَّيَاطِينُ فَاجْتَالَتْهُمْ عَنْ دِينِهِمْ وَحَرَّمَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ مَا أَحْلَلْتُ لَهُمْ وَأَمَرَتْهُمْ أَنْ لَا يُشْرِكُوا بِي مَا لَمْ أُنْزِلْ بِهِ سُلْطَانًا
 
Allah said: I have created all of My servants naturally inclined to worship one God but it is the devils who turn them away from their religion. They make unlawful for them what has been made lawful for them, and they command them to associate partners with Me, although no authority has been revealed for them.
