Whispers about Quran and Allah
Fatwa No: 396772

Question

Shaytaan keeps whispering in my ear that (astaghafirullah) Islam is all made up and that the Quran was just written by man, but I know that’s all a lie, deep down I do. I am so scared of loosing my imaan, because several people have left Islam due to lack of correct information or answers on their questions. I have been battling with anxiety for two months now, and I think all this is as a result of the anxiety. Now, all I want is a confirmation that the Quran is the word of god, and Islam is the right religion (maybe quotations from the Quran) and maybe some Duas to get rid of these thoughts and also my anxiety. I know that in shaa Allah all this will pass, because my anxiety changes it’s triggers quite a lot, but I just want to put my mind at ease, because for about a week now, I don’t feel as connected to Allah as I usually do, and I’m seriously scared that my imaan is dying. Thank you

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

You must repel these whispers, not care about them, and not pay any attention to them.

Praise be to Allah, you are upon much goodness, and you are a Muslim, and you do not go out of the fold of Islam because of these whispers.

As for the proof of the truthfulness of the Quran and that it is from Allah, then this is very evident. The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) challenged the entire world, the humans as well as the Jinn to bring the like of what he had brought to them [i.e. the Quran], but they were all unable to do so. Therefore, this is evidence that it is certainly from Allah. Allah Says (what means): {Say, “If mankind and the jinn gathered in order to produce the like of this Quran, they could not produce the like of it, even if they were to each other assistants.”} [Quran 17:88]

Additionally, the Quran informed us about many matters of the Unseen and they occurred exactly as stated in the Quran. How could the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) have known this if this had not been from Allah.

The Quran also informed us about stories of former people and the Prophet Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) was illiterate, he neither knew how to read nor to write. So how could he have known all of this unless it was a revelation from Allah Almighty.

The Quran guides to good morals and conduct, which is definitely not the words of human beings.

There are many miraculous aspects that prove that the Quran is from Allah, so repel these whispers and stop giving in to them because giving in to them leads you to a great evil.

Allah knows best.
