Quick Grasp of Faith


21. How do I know which one of my actions will meet with Allah’s approval?

Allah always inspires the most proper course of actionthrough the conscience of one who fears Him. In a verse,Allah says:

You who believe! if you go in fear (taqwa) of Allah, He will give you a criterion (by which to judge between right and wrong) and will cleanse you of your sins and forgive you.Allah’s favour is indeed immense. (Surat al-Anfal: 29)

It should not be forgotten that the first voice the individual hears in his heart is the voice of his conscience which helps him to judge between right and wrong, and it is this very voice which tells him the behaviour that will please Allah.People who fear Allah arrive at the truth by listening to the voice of their conscience.

22. Is there any other voice in a person’s heart apart from that of his conscience?

All of the other alternatives that surface after the voice of one’s conscience are the “voices of the self” that try to suppress the conscience. The self tries with all its might to prevent one from behaving righteously and to make one do evil deeds. It may not do this very openly.It may outline certain excuses which may seem sensible. It may cause one to say “all this will come to nothing.” Allah states this truth in the Qur’an:

“By the soul and Him that moulded it and inspired it with the knowledge of sin and piety: blessed shall be the man who has kept it pure.” (Surat ash-Shams: 7-9)

As stated in the verse, man is a prey to sin but knows he has a duty to guard against it. Man is tested on his choice between good and evil.
