Faith (Iman) issue in Islam 

     Allah, Almighty, says in Surat Albaqarah aya 285: the Messenger has believed in what has been sent down from His Lord, and so have the believers, all of them have believed in Allah, and His angels, and His books, and His Messengers, and they say we make no difference between any of His Messengers, and they say we hear and we obey, we seek your forgiveness our lord, and toward you is the final destination.

       In another section in Surat Aliemran ayat (84,85), Allah says: say we have believed in Allah, and in what was revealed to us, and what revealed to Ibraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the tribes, and in what was given to Moses, and Juses and to the prophets from their Lord, we make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims (submitting to Him), and whoever follows any other religion than Islam it will never be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he will be among the losers.

     When our prophet one day was sitting with his friends, Gabriel (the angel) came and said to the prophet: inform me about Iman (faith), the prophet replied that you affirm your faith in Allah, in His angels, in His books, in His apostles, in the day of judgement, and you affirm your faith in the divine decree about good and evil, then Gabriel said to him (the prophet) you have told the truth. 

       The faith issue is based on each one believes in Allah, His angels, His books, His Messengers, then say we make no distinction between one another of His Messengers, therefore each of  the believers believes that Allah is the one, the only, and the Sustainer, there is no deity worthy of worship except Him, and there is no lord except Him.

      The believers also believes in all Allah's Messengers and prophets, in the books that were revealed from the heaven to the Messengers and prophets, who are indeed the servants of Allah, further the believers do not differentiate between any of the prophets such as believing in some of them and rejecting others.

       rather, all of the prophets and messengers are to the believers truthful, righteous, and they were each guided to the path of righteousness, even when some of them bring what abrogates the law of some others by Allah’s leave, later on, the law of Muhammad, the final prophet and messenger of Allah, abrogated all the laws of the prophets before him.

         So the last hour will commence while Muhammad’s law remains the only valid law, and all the while a group of his ummah (Muslims) will always be on the path of truth, apparent, and dominant.

         In addition to that, Allah Azza wa Galla says at the beginning of Surat Albaqara aya 4: and of the hereafter they are certain in faith, that’s means they (the believers) are certain that is the resurrection, the standing on the day of resurrection, paradise, the fire, reckoning, and the scale that weighs the deeds, the hereafter is so names because it comes after this earthly life.
