6 Articles of Faith

Assalam alaikum & peace to all

I thought I would post up the 6 articles of Faith that all Muslims must adhere to.

There is always so much talk about the 5 pillars – which are important
but somehow these 6 other important items seem to slip by.

  1. Belief in God (Allah), the one and only one worthy of all worship (tawhid).
  2. Belief in all the Prophets (nabi) and Messengers (rusul) sent by God
  3. Belief in the Angels (mala’ika).
  4. Belief in the Books (kutub) sent by God[citation needed] (including the Qur’an).
  5. Belief in the Day of Judgment (qiyama) and in the Resurrection (life after death).
  6. Belief in Destiny (Fate) (qadar).

In Sunni and Shia view, having Iman literally means to have belief in Six articles. However the importance of Iman relies heavily upon reasons. Islam explicitly asserts that belief should be maintained in that which can be proven using faculties of perception and conception.
