Q: All my life I had been a Muslim but recently I began to watch videos on athiesm. At first I didn’t believe them but now they have destroyed my iman. I begin to think why would Allah need to create humans and why does Allah not just show Himself? If humanity was created to perfection, why is there so much pain in the world and lastly why is there no clear proof. Please I want to restore my faith I feel so lost.
A: It is incumbent that you leave out the type of literature that you are viewing. Sit in the company of a righteous experienced aalim. After Esha Salaah when you are at home take a bath and perform four rakaats namaaz and recite “Laa ilaaha illallah” several hundred times and “Muhamamdur rasulullah” at intervals with the feeling that all filthy beliefs and ideas have left your heart and your heart is being filled up with the love of Allah Ta`ala.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
