Faith is a worth gift from Allah. We cannot buy it in markets or any places (I meant, faith is not a commodity), nor from the righteous parents. I have ever read and watched from any medias, a few Muslims sold their faiths and changed by dunya. Prophet Noah Alaihi Salam couldn’t give faith and hidayah to his son and his wife. Our prophet Muhammad SAW couldn’t give faith to his lovely uncle Abu Thalib. Prophet Luth couldn’t give guidance to his wife. Hidayah and faith are Allah’s authority only.
When we get faith, we should keep it, and pour it with good actions, so our faiths will increased, more and more.
Is there unbeneficial faith?
Yes, there is. Pharaoh’s faith is one of it. Allah has told about Pharaoh and his arrogance in Holy books in many surah and verses. Pharaoh was a man who admitted himself as Lord. He didn’t receive Prophet Moses as Messenger of Allah. He refused Prophet Moses’s precept.
When he met his death, he took shahadah and said, “I’m one of the Muslims.” But, Allah refused Pharaoh’s faith. What unlucky Pharaoh was!
Let’s see the following verses!
And he gathered [his people] and called out. (23) And said, “I am your most exalted Lord.”
And We took The Children of Israel across the sea, and Pharaoh and his soldiers pursued them in tyranny and enmity until, when drowning overtook him, he said, “I believe that there is no deity except that in when the Children of Israel believe and I am of the Muslims.” (90)
Now? And you had disobeyed [Him] before and were of the corrupters? (91)
So today We will save you in body that you may be to those who succeed you a sign. And indeed, many among the people of Our signs, are heedless. (92)
Naudzubillah summa naudzubillah! May Allah strengthen our faith and may Allah brighten our hearts, so we can get Allah’s light. Ameen!
