Recommended Posts

I know what you guys are thinking, I post to much and the same topics and all that stuff. But I really need help guys.

About 2-4 weeks ago I started to not feel presence of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). I read all 5 salats and I don’t feel him. I’ve fasted many days this Ramadan and I don’t feel his presence. I use to feel his presence 24/7 I use to think about him always being here for me. I don’t feel him anymore and it’s making me sad. I get atheist thoughts now. Every time I try to watch an Islamic video on YouTube, there are always anti-Muslim comments. The comments are usually ‘God doesn’t exist’ and ‘There is no proof of God and it is a false theory by you stupid religious humans’ or I get videos in my YouTube recommendations as ‘Son of sheikh says Jesus is savior after leaving Islam’ . Then on other videos they say ‘Muslims worship Satan’ and then they say ‘look at these verses in the Qur'an this one says slavery is fine and this one says it’s fine to kill Christians and Jews’ my faith goes down more. I feel like I need to read the Qur'an in English now. And in the comments people with like the name Muhammad something or Abdul something say why they left Islam and became an atheist or a Christian who is anti-Muslim. I keep getting stupid YouTube recommendations for The Arabian Prophet or The Christian Prince, who are all trying to get people to leave Islam and there videos make me feel worse. I’ve stopped watching them but they still come into mind, and I feel depressed.

I feel like I’m doubting is there a God? How do we know there is a God? How do we know Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) is a true Prophet? Is (Shi’a) Islam the best and correct religion? Is there really a heaven and a hell? How can I get the feeling of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) back into my life?

Guys please help me with these questions if you can. I feel so lost and misguided and I feel so depressed. I’m not happy anymore. I’m afraid of just perishing after death or if our religion is wrong, and we get put in hellfire.

Salaam, 

I went through a phase similar to this and I think we all have to some extent. It's just a lot of people don't admit it.

Firstly:

Some people go their entire lives just to experience a tiny moment in which they can actually FEEL the presence of God, people with a very high status have been there. I wouldn't stress out too much if you do not feel the presence of God, just know o that he is always there. 

Which brings me onto the second point:

This is obviously a test, trust me brother/sister God is simply testing your faith, we've all been there including myself eventually all these doubts will go away. You must have hope. I advise that you surround yourself with your family members who can help you through this time so you can carry on fasting, praying and reading the Qur'an keeping you on the right path and Inshallah you will see the light once again.

When I go through a depressive episode I often lose faith. My religious practice drops massively, but, and here is an important point, I always knew Allah exists. I knew He was there and I knew that one day I would be okay.

The comments on YouTube, I forget whether it was you or another person I replied to, but people see flaws that aren't necessarily real.

Peoplehate what they don't know, and it is easier to hate than to love, because to love you need to invest your time and deepest emotions which makes you vulnerable. Hate, hate is easy, you don't need to know someone to hate them, hate involves no emotional connection. These people who hate Islam, hate Allah, they fall into the latter.

I know you question Allah's existence, but deep down inside do you believe in Him? Questioning is normal, we all do it, but do you still hold on to that belief, no matter how dark or clouded your vision is? If so, don't worry, the fog always lifts when the light shines, you just need to have faith and wait for that light to come again. It takes time, but it will happen.

...And also, my advice is to strip things down to the basics, just do the basics of religion and allow your relation with Allah to build. Don't distract yourself with YouTube, serious religious debate or overcomplicated matters of the maddhab. These things will only put doubts in your head.

I do believe there is a creator, but when I read stuff atheists posts, my doubts get worse and my faith is so very little. I need Allah back in my life I try to talk to him, but I don’t feel him anymore

So long as you believe there is a creator, He will bring you back to Him. You, like many, many people, have hit a wall and you will find your way. I hit a wall myself at one point, and I felt like leaving it all, but I couldn't, not just because I would lose my wife and children, but because my life would be meaningless if I left Allah. Life still has meaning even when we are down in the deepest holes of our inner mind, we just can't see it, just because we can't see it, it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.  Sadly, atheists often ignore this, but you know better than them, so don't let someone who knows less have the upper hand.

My mom told me Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) tests our faith in different ways. One of hers was her brother dying 19 years ago at the age of 21 in a motorcycle accident.

As salaamun aleikum,

Just want to say a few things here...

First off, we all go through spiritual highs and lows. As long as you know Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) exists, as do you and everything else, you will be fine. Every "thing" that exists is the zahiri/outwardly proof/manifestation of His existence.

2nd, don’t base your religion and beliefs on "feelings". Feelings are subject to change due to many factors such as mood, chemical imbalances, external events, medications, lack of sleep, build up or relief of stress etc.. At the end of the day,theyre kida like illusions and can lead you astray, especially if youre expecting your feelings to be a type of personal evidence for Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). I agree there can be special moments and experiencs we can be granted that can help reassure us, or even catapult us to the next level of iman or yaqeen, but feelings are not meant to be used as a constant indicator of Allahs(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) precence or existence, or even as an indicator of how "close" we are to Him.

3rd, my honest suggestion is to stop with the atheistic/islamophobic/X Muslim videos. Why? Because you,me and may others are not at a level where our knowledge of Islam is koor(voluminous/large amount).

Koor is a measurement of a large ammount of water and when something najis such as drops of blood or urine enters it, the water  doesnt become najis because it is such a large volumnious amount.

However, a glass of water has a qalil (little) amount of water in it, so if a few drops of blood or urine falls into it,the entire glass of water becomes najis. The same thing is the case with Islamic knowledge.

If your Islamic knowledge is very little, and you encounter a "najis" statement, point of view, comment, etc, and you don’t have koor (large/voluminous) knowledge to answer that najis point, you become existentially najis, meaning,because you get these doubts about Allahs(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) existence,or whether the Qur'an is correct,etc. YOU yourself become najis. The only thing left to do is to search out the correct answers to these questions in order to purify yourself from the najisifying thoughts and falsehood youve become contaminated/najisified with.

The problem with delving into those videos, comments, discussions, etc when your knowledge is qalil (little) vs koor (voluminous) is that sometimes people don't come back..For whatever reason, they continue  being mislead. Some just leave religion, others become depressed and go in a completely different direction in life that leads them away from the Truth..

That's why it's very dangerous to entertain yourself with these types of videos and comments, at least until you have enough powerful VOLUMINOUS  knowledge behind you to combat these types of encounters,so they don’t enter you and render your very existence najis,which brings me to my last point.

You're here on shiachat, and that's great because there's a lot of really knowledgeable people here that can guide you and help you get the answers to your questions. Another  good resource is Al Islam, and there are others...Spend your time reading actual Islamic literature as opposed to visiting random Youtube sites. SaveYouTube for legit credentialed Islamic speakers that have studied at Hawza, and stay away from these random people who became Christian or atheist based on their own deficiency (qalil) knowledge. Many if them are fake stories anyway,intentionally put there to mislead othes.

Some speakers I suggest you listen to in place of these random you tubers are:

Khalil Jaffer

Dr.. Ali Shomali

Dr.. Farrokh Sekaleshfar

Hajj Hassanain Rajabali

Im sure others would be happy to make further suggestions.

Another thing to do, is start picking up books. Look for books by Allameh Tabatabai, Shahid Mutahari, Ayatullah Mizbah Yazdi, Dastghaib...

Hope this helps,

W/s

Salam.

Just to share what happen in self and peaceful feeling that we may have experienced. 

Islam is based on trust in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).  And insist and persist in this trust.  Complete the salat 5 times a day.  We ask Him(عليه السلام) in surah al-fatiha...show me the right path.  So we have belief plus actions.

Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) will show the path, a little bit at time. He will raise a little question in us, then He will show the answer.  He also will slowly allow our awareness toward Him in milliseconds, then He will want us to strive toward it so we are used to it.  When we reach to that awareness, He will show more.  This process will continue until we die.  Once we are strong in foundation, He will show us the awareness of Ahmad and Ahlul Bayt.  And through them, we will be truly aware of Names of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).  Then we will understand the meaning of Tauhid because we can feel it or see it.  The real peace will manifest in our souls. That moment, the love of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is the true love, it is like the love of Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) to his Rabb (Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)), even though it a small portion.

Persist in trusting Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).  Just like others who advise you to read  or listen to good lectures... all these to focus your heart toward Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and trusting Him.

May all of us be guided!

Clear your YouTube search and viewing history and browser cache so these “recommended videos” don’t show up. Watching videos on full screen will also distract you away from the recommended video sidebar. 

There are browser extensions I believe that remove the YouTube comments section and recommended video sidebar.

And finally, don’t underestimate the power of a physical book.

I don't think there are such extensions on chrome. But yes one can use f11 or other full screen mode

Brother I  would be honoured to put some daleels of mine infront of you as you helped me once as well.

Q. I feel like I’m doubting is there a God? How do we know there is a God? How do we know Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) is a true Prophet? Is (Shi’a) Islam the best and correct religion? Is there really a heaven and a hell? How can I get the feeling of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) back into my life?

Allah's existence:

1. Nature/fitrah: Every Human being that is created knows he has a creator deep down inside ask yourself sincerely the answer is right there, you have the capability of accepting his existence.

2. The Sun , moon , stars and the detailed  structures that our body is made up of is a miracle. Lets talk about the heart shall we , the heart is made up of 4 chambers each have blood following through due to pressure up against gravity below due to gravity now let me ask you is scientific causes enough to make this heart be smart enough and precise enough to function and continue functioning like this. And if some Jahil argues it is let me ask them what is the CAUSE of all these causes. God, some foolish people also try to say there was nothing before universe well duhhhh your physics and time initiated because of big bang then how can there be something before BUT! this applies to what you see now I.e the universe , the one who willed it was always there  how do I know this well lemme quote [Qur'an 21.30] Do not those who disbelieve see that the heavens and the Earth were meshed together then We ripped them apart? And then We made of water everything living? Would they still not believe? such beauty and harmony can never come because of nothing.

3. Every thing that is here has a designer : look at the pen, pencils, toothpaste , makeup and then say NOBODY made it, it came by magic . The complex machine known as a human came by magic?

Now the athiest very smartly will say yea offcourse it is EVOLUTION wowow. Well aparantely a book came magically 1400 years ago that had some scientific facts that NO FREAKING HUMAN (don’t believe me google when did big bang theory was discovered? ) knew and this was a mere coincidence . I QUOTE:"And God has created every animal from water: of them there are some that creep on their bellies; some that walk on two legs; and some that walk on four. God creates what He wills for verily God has power over all things.   (The Noble Qur'an, 24:45)" IF THIS IS NOT EVOLUTION KILL ME.

4. Lets look at some other miracles just google Scientific miracles Islam.org you will find not only scientific but mathematical.

Btw you don’t have to be a scientist to know all the details just some info is good 

Lets move to some other miracles eg wind is a method of fertilization in plants, moon has a reflected light of sun , embryo and its growth and many more are there.

5. The presence of foot steps is the evidence of the walker, similarly the presence of a human is the evidence of its creator

6. Imagine your plane is hijacked by hitler and the gun is at your head the feeling that some one can save you thats God. some perso will say its conscience that tells you wellllll  my brother you can change it to suit your desires a murderer can easily kill their conscience to suit their kills. and where did that conscience come from? you had it magically or some body put it in you like how does your conscience know what is right or not who told it ?. Everyone has different morals so who you going to count on? Who told you what right or wrong is ? my dad well who told him go on on on you will reach the creator.

7. When veins in the hands don't tangle like the wires of the headphones that is work of God.

8. Allah's Dallel : Allah says in Qur'an did they come from nothing or were they themselves the creators? t is said the meaning [of the verse] is: Were they created without a creator? That is impossible, as they must have a creator. If they deny the Creator, then they must have created themselves, and that proposition is even more foolish and false, for how can something without existence create anything? If they reject these two opinions [that they came to be without a creator or they created themselves], then the proof is established upon them that they were in fact created

9. 

  1. Everything in the universe that has a beginning must have a cause.

  2. The universe began to exist.

  3. Therefore the beginning of the existence of the universe must have been caused by something.

  4. The only such cause must be an uncaused cause, or God.

     

For people who say universe is infinte ? lets assume for the sake of argument it is then who is sustaining it , if its by itself it can go to chaos but their is order and harmony everywhere we see.

10. Every thing is in the state of rest until a force is applied to cause it moving I think its newton . WHO IS THE FORCE MOVING THE UNIVERSE ITS God. because if it is not then everything should be stationary like a rock nothing should move .

 

2. Prophet Mohammed

1. Truthful brings the truth. The one who spoke the Qur'an is as truthful as the Qur'an.

2. He is prophesized in all the scriptures example torah, injeel, Hindu scriptures as well its very negatively like he is mentioned in the puranas literally as we know but later it says he is a demon well to that I can say they knew his message so it irked them and then  they changed teachings and made him a demon. Astagfirullah.

3. Look at his character and nature: Go to Islam.org and search at his qaulities you will be amazed at his steadfastness and his morals!

Shia Islam

If you are a Muslim who follows Qur'an and loves Ahlul Bayt then you can be  Shia,  Sunni anything. youre going to be fine. And what makes you Shia and not Sunni cough cough 3. that search up Islam.org got some beautiful daleels to prove their POINTS.

Heaven and hell:

This is very simple because look around you 

Simple question: How many Jews did Hitler kill? and How many got justice 

He got killed by a freaking bomb thats it! nothing compared to what he did!

Look at Yazeed , firaun what did they do its all in history . Do you think they punishment is getting killed by Imam only nope! they are destined for pain 

when you analyse these crimes and there are many more  its enough proof for hell and heaven.

need more then lets go:

Punishment need to be kept permanent and harsh in order for people to take laws and right path seriously. and awaken kauf in the hearts for people who think of comitting wrong like its a joke.

example: I am going to kill this man today said a murderer and he killed the man. Now lets assume his punishment is jail for 10 years , he is going to laugh and say thats easy BUT now if the punishment is longer harsher and permanent like lifetime or death HE WILL THINK TWICE BEFORE KILLING!

Some clown will say 10 years is enough torture and he wont do it ? to some people it is that 's why Allah made punishment here in this life also and people get it . But their are twisted minds seriously TWISTED people like HITLER for whom this SORT OF PUNISHMENT IS NEEDED.  So keeping this is very helpful in deterring against sins.

as the person will think I have no , NOOOO way to be pardoned  if I do this crime rather than meh ok fine.

YOU DECIDE WHAT IS BETTER 

Another proof is that Second law of thermodynamics state that the entropy of the universe is increasing that is basically saying the universe is going into chaos day by day. which means its going to reach an end. even STEPHEAN hawking ( kaffir) said it! and this is evident  look around you the GLOBALL WARMING, POLLUTION will make the universe stay here forever. IF NOT then there must be a place that we go to after we all die and we don't suffer there like we did hear on Earth again doesnt that seem simpler and more rational THAT PLACE IS CALLED JANNAH.

I APOLOGIZE FOR MY HORRIBLE ENGLISH

MORE :

 

Even if we accept the idea of an infinite regression for the sake of argument, and despite the lack of scientific or intuitive evidence for it, that does not discount the need for a cause beyond time and space to produce and sustain it. Polymath and philosopher G.W. Leibniz (d. 1716) asserts that an infinite series must still necessarily have a sufficient reason for its existence:

Let us suppose that a book on the elements of geometry has always existed, one copy always made from another. It is obvious that although we can explain a present copy of the book from the previous book from which it was copied, this will never lead us to a complete explanation, no matter how many books back we go, since we can always wonder why there have always been such books, why these books were written, and why they were written the way they were. What is true of these books is also true of the different states of the world, for the state which follows is, in a sense, copied from the preceding state, though in accordance with certain laws of change. And so, however far back we might go into previous states, we will never find in those states a complete explanation [ratio] for why, indeed, there is any world at all, and why it is the way it is… From this it follows that even if we assume the eternity of the world, we cannot escape the ultimate and extramundane reason for things, God.[44]

In the same vein, physicist Don Page gives the example of an artist drawing a circle on a canvas; the circle has no beginning or end, yet it still required an external artist to draw it.[45] The existence of the universe itself, regardless of its finite or infinite nature, must have had a Creator to set the chain of causes in motion.

I forgot who I searched up, but it was the very bottom comment. They’ll probably reply ‘May the lord have mercy on you’ or something. But Jesus, Isa (عليه السلام) prayed to God. If the trinity was true how come one God prayed to another? Wouldn’t that be polytheism?? And Jesus ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) said I forgot where in the Bible but he said “In vain they worship me”

Youre right.

Another thing in the trinity there are three of the same kind co exist at the same time ( look at the fabrication) lol.

Like look at the entire life of Isa ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) like come on eating, drinking, crying, sleeping and PRAYING! doesn't seem like God or Godly to me.

The God we know is free from such accusations and limited attributes of being called a father , son and another person. These 3 are people / human with human limited qualities.

Moreover, the moment God comes in forms becomes limited as such a limitless being cannot be trapped inside a limited body and becomes similar like us which he is certainly not as he is limitless!

When Jesus was getting killed on the cross according to Christians, he didn’t say I’m dying for your sins. Paul in the Bible wrote something like

‘Christ died for your sins the righteous and unrighteous so baptize in the name of your lord’ 

and in Galatians 1:8 he wrote ‘May God curse any people who try to become a Prophet’ so that’s why some Christians hate us

Furthermore, when he was apparently on the cross he asked 'Eloi Eloi lama sabachthani?' Which makes no sense. How can God forsake Himself? Or why would God quote His own revelation (the Psalms) about Himself? If you piece together all the things Jesus, peace be upon him, says on the cross, they all point towards someone who is clearly no more than a messenger and servant of God...

I feel like I’m doubting is there a God? How do we know there is a God? How do we know Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) is a true Prophet? Is (Shi’a) Islam the best and correct religion? Is there really a heaven and a hell? How can I get the feeling of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) back into my life?

Guys please help me with these questions if you can. I feel so lost and misguided and I feel so depressed. I’m not happy anymore. I’m afraid of just perishing after death or if our religion is wrong, and we get put in hellfire. 

When doubt, confusion, uncertainty, anxiety arise, enquire: “Does this doubt, confusion, uncertainty, anxiety, exist apart from the thought that arose with it?” 
Once it is realized that doubt, confusion, uncertainty, anxiety, is the thought, the Truth is revealed. 
Truth is absolutely Self-evident and therefore impossible to believe in. 
Belief necessarily implies uncertainty. Uncertainty is inherent within belief. 
Does one need believe that they exist? Directly experiencing one's own existence, what is there to believe?
Only concepts can be believed. Beliefs are only concepts.
Total submission to Allah (Islam) is the single movement from thought to Being. It is also the movement from delusion to Truth, illusion to Reality, ego to Self, separation to Unity.

@Zahra.5Yes I was born into a syed-Shi’a family. I live In the United States. And these doubts I get are so annoying and I can’t help them.

when you accepted Islam, perform your prayers and do your fast, and seek nearness to Allah and want to feel him again in your life, it indicates that Allah cares you, supports you, guided you and showed you the truth!
I understand your feellings.
for myself, I become sad and depressed many times in my life, I don’t have doubt about the truth of my religion, but for example: sometimes I feel that noone love me, I could not help someone in the world, when in Quora thousands of my answers were collapsed, it makes me very sad and depressed that people don’t read the informations that I provided them to help them to return to Allah, to be means of there guidance by divine grace, etc.
but I believe that the advent of Imam Mahdi, (may Allah hasten his reappearance), is very near.
he returns and rescues us from all injustice and cruelties by divine support!
believing in the advent of Imam Mahdi, is the only reason that gives me tranquillity in this merciless world!
Imam Mahdi is manifestation of divine mercy:
when Imam Mahdi (may Allah hasten his reappearance) returns says:
“Your Lord's mercy is completely overwhelming, and I am that comprehensive mercy of Allah.”
Biharul Anwar, volume 53, page 11.

be sure that Allah loves you as he selected you for following his best and most perfected religions, supports you always, bestows his mercies and graces for you, brings you in to light, gives you special rewards, answers your prayers, and grants your wishes.
the all-merciful Allah says in the Qur'an:
“And when those who believe in Our communications come to you, say: Peace be on you, your Lord has ordained mercy on Himself.”
surah alanaam: verse 54.
"As for those who believe in Allah and hold fast by Him, He will cause them to enter into His Mercy and grace and guide them to Himself on a right path." (4:175)
"Say, ‘My Lord, forgive and have mercy, and You are the Best of those who are merciful.’" (23:118)
“Your Lord's mercy is completely overwhelming.” (6:147)
Amir al-Mu’minin (عليه السلام), in one part of dua kumayl, tells Allah:
“it is very far from You to spoil the one who have accepted Your divinity and training, via Your spiritual blessings. It is very far from You to torture the one who You have have brought to Your nearness and mercy, or to drive away the one who You have given refuge, or chastise the one who You have spared.”
o my lord, You are so Merciful and so Generous that You have addressed the sinful human:
“You called me and I answered you, you asked Me and I granted you, you opposed Me but I respited, you left Me but I watched you, you disobeyed My orders but I concealed your sins; if you return to me I would accept you, and if you went away from Me, I wait for your return to Me. I am the most Generous of the generous, the most Forgiver of the forgivers, and the most Merciful of the merciful.”
Allah addressed Prophet David (as):
“Say to My servants: Why don’t you befriend Me, since I deserve friendship? I am a God of no miserliness, there’s no ignorance in My Omniscience, no incapacity in My Forbearance, and no alternation in My Attributes or My Speech. My Mercy and Forgiveness is unvarying and constant. I am the friend of him who befriends Me, and I accompany him who invokes on Me in his solitude. O David! He who seeks Me finds Me; and he who finds Me deserves not to lose Me. O David! Blessing is from Me but My servants thank others; I ward off calamity but they seek it from others. Their safe haven is My Presence, but they seek refuge from others, though finally they return to Me.”
Imam ‘Ali (عليه السلام) says:
"Allah is not to open up the doors of gratitude to His servant but close the doors of increased blessings. He is not to allow him to supplicate, but limit fulfillment of his supplication. And He does not intend to open the doors of repentance, but close the doors of His forgiveness."
Nahj Al-Balagha: Hikmat 435.
Imam al-Baqir (عليه السلام) said:
“Obtain Allah’s Mercy and Forgiveness by returning to Him, and for realizing your return get help from sincere praying in the middle of night.”
Bihar al-Anwar: 75/ 162, Bab 22, tradition 1.
http://www.al-Islam.org/commentary-kumayl-supplication-allama-husayn-ansariyan
“surely my Lord is Nigh, Answering.”
holy Qur'an: 11/61.
“And ask forgiveness of your Lord, then turn to Him; surely my Lord is Merciful, Loving-kind.”
holy Qur'an: 11/90.
God’s mercy has no limit and does not accept any restriction. The only restriction is in our understanding and therefore we may not be able to grasp all aspects of His mercy. His mercy is all-embracing and all-inclusive nothing falls out of it.
As Allah says in the Qur’an:
"My mercy has encompassed everything." (7: 156)
In a divine saying, we read:
"If the people who have turned their back on Me knew how much I love them to come back they would have died out of joy."
Allah does not need anyone, but still, out of His mercy, He does not want even a single person to go astray.
