What is the meaning of Islamic Belief?

Muslims believe in these matters with a firm conviction just like the conviction we have about a table in front of us and of the existence of the sun.
What is the meaning of Islam?
Answer – Islam is the affirmation/proclamation of the tongue and firm conviction of the heart that everything the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) brought is TRUE REALITY and REAL.
The literal meaning of Islam is one who submits or submission. It does not mean “peace” as has often been translated to.
One must make verbal testimony regarding their firm belief in Allah (Most High) and the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). If one merely makes a verbal proclamation with no firm conviction or belief from the heart then one is liable to become a hypocrite.

Answer – There are 7 pillars of Belief as follows:
These are absolute essentials; one is required to believe in these. Dharuriyaat ad-Din (Absolute Essentials of Belief). If there are doubts or one does not believe in all of the above then one is outside the folds of Islam.
There is wisdom behind the order of Beliefs; Allah (Most High) transmitted revelations through the Angels, through His books to the Messengers (peace be upon them) to prepare us for the Day of Judgement.
