5 Ways to grow faith

Faith is essential for all Christians. The bible says it is through faith that believers will inherit the Kingdom of God. There are examples in The Bible who have done long hours of meditation prayer to grow in the faith of God. However, due to the struggles and temptations of the world, most people do not have faith in God. Knowing how to grow your faith is very important. This is because a strong faith gives someone ability to push on even during the hard times. Besides, faith helps you seek God more,overcome any fear, and help believers struggling in life. A person with a strong faith like Abraham enjoys a good quality of life. But who can someone develop that strong faith? Below are five ways on how to grow your faith.

1. Reading the Bible

The bible was written to help people produce faith. You cannot have faith without reading the word of God. It is written that you believe that Jesus-Christ is the Messiah, He is the Son of God, and through believing in Him, you have the life. And it is by hearing the word of God that we have faith. Hence, if you want to grow your faith, you need to read the word of God. Have a reading plan, read and understand what the Lord says.

2. Practicing the Word

The bible has commands and instructions for all our are as that include money, relationship, sexuality, worry, fear, anger, and temptations. Once you the read the word, you need to practice what it says.When you put all the instructions and commands into practice, your faith grows and your life starts to change. Even though it might not be easy to put everything into practice, you need to keep on reading the bible for God to give your guidance.

3. Have people of faith around you

If you want to grow your faith, you need to have people with strong faith around you. It is believed that you are an average of 5 people you usually spend your life with. Surrounding yourself with non-believers, they might easily turn you to a non-believer. They will help you or hurt you on matters concerning your faith. Therefore, think about the people you spend it with. If they do not have a strong faith like you, look for other friends.

4. Read good books

There are many books sold on bookshops. If you want to grow  your faith every day, look for good books to read. Apart from reading the Bible, which is the book of faith, some books can help you build your faith and live a good life. Some books will help you learn how to pray, how to have quiet time with God, how to have faith in God, and how you to trust the Lord among many others.

5. Trust God even when in Pain

When you read the Bible regularly, pray a lot, surround yourself with the right people, and read good books, your faith will grow.Also, you should trust in God even when you are in pain or going through difficult times. The Bible says that God uses pain and difficulties to grow faith.

Cool things you should know about Islam

Islam is one of the most practised faiths in the world. Although the religion has been around for a while, Islam has been subjected to manipulation and demonisation by many to meet interests that concern politics, economics and the society.

Here are some interesting things that you need to know about Islam.

Islam believes Jesus was a prophet sent by God

This belief varies from one sect of Islam to the other, but it is widely believed that Jesus was sent by God in that particular time and region to lead the people there. In the Qur’an, he is called Isa.

As a matter of fact, Isa is mentioned 187 times in the Qur’an, which is more than the number of times Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) is mentioned.

Hadhrat Maryam (peace be upon her)

Islam also believes in Mary, or Hadhrat Maryam (peace be upon her). She is considered in the faith as a woman of God. Immaculate Conception as well as the birth of Jesus, her devotion to God as an attestation to Mary’s beauty is also something that is widely considered and believed in Islam. Mary has been mentioned in the Qur’an 70 times, which is more than the number of times she’s been mentioned in the New Testament. She is also the only woman to be mentioned in the Qur’an.

Muslim women and rights

Muslims women rights

 

It is said that Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) married a woman that was older than him. She was also a businesswoman who was renowned in the time period for her success and wealth. With the introduction of Islamic laws in the middle east, girls were required to be educated as it was a sacred duty while marriage needed the consent of the woman to legitimise the contract. The Qur’an also encourages both Muslim men as well as women to seek knowledge.

Islam isn’t restricted to only Shi’a and Sunni

Many people believe there are only two branches of the faith. If the majority of Muslims identify themselves as Shi’a, the minority wouldn’t be Sunni by default. There are other Muslims that identify themselves as Ahmadi, Baha’i or even Ismaili. The core ideology in every branch is mostly the same.

The word Allah

The word Allah is associated all around the world with Islam, but the trust is, Allah simply means God in Arabic. It is believed that the Qur’an was revealed to Gabriel in the Arabic language. That is why you will find Christians that live in the middle east using the word Allah to refer to their God as well.

Things You Should Know About Islam

About Islam

What Does Islam mean?

muslim

Islam is Arabic, which is also the language that is spoken by most Muslims throughout the Middle East and Africa.The Quran is written in Arabic.
The meaning of Islam means to surrender to Allah, the god, revealed by the prophet, Mohammed.

The Quran

The book Islam is called the Quran, which means recitation. The Quran is the central religious word of Islam. All Muslims believe the book to be a revelation, which was given to them by Allah, whom they know as their god or the higher power of faith. They also believe the Quran to be the only unedited book in religion, compared to any other religion, which is why it is made believable to them.

It is also believed that the Quran was revealed to Muhammad, through an angel named Gabriel, by Allah.
The revelation that was given was given over the course of 23 years, which ended when Mohammad died and left to his companions. They were knowledgeable about the Quran and preserved, which was kept the same up until today.

The chapters in the Quran are referred to as suras, and the verses, ayahs.The first sura is known as the ideal embodiment of Islam and is repeated continuously in prayers, as well as in a time of praise.

Why Islam and Christianity Gets Compared with One Another

In Islam, Christ in Christianity is replaced by Mohammad. In the Quran, Islam has nearly the same old testament than that of which can be found in the Bible. The Muslims, however, do not believe in the new testament.
While Christians believe that Jesus is the Messiah, which means the saviour of sin and Gods son, the Muslims believe that Mohammed is theirs.
