One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Can one ask questions in Islam?
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your question: is it wrong question something what`s told in islam, i mean though i believe in something i`ve doubts about that thing,then cant i question about it,which is considered against religion.
If one asks a question to learn and/or understand the deen, or one asks a question so that he may understand the ‘hikmah’ or wisdom behind any command of the deen so that he may follow it with more conviction; there is absolutely no harm; in fact, such questions where one may learn and understand the deen of Islam are encouraged. When one wants to learn or understand the deen, he is encouraged to ask any number of question on any belief or command of Islam.
But if one is a muslim, and is fundamentally against the guidance and teachings of Allah and His Messenger (saws), and has absolutely no intention to accept, follow or obey their commandments, but simply asks questions to challenge the commands and prove them wrong and non-beneficial; such type of questions are discouraged in Islam.
The above guidance is only for the believers. If one is a non-believer, he is allowed to ask any question he wants on Islam; and the believers and scholars must strive to satisfy his queries in the most polite and best manner, to enable his heart to soften to the Truth of Al-Islam.
Also i`ll like to ask u abt one such thing.suppose a nonbeliever tells me he firmly believe in one God,but why is it imp that he believes in the prophet(saws),as prophets were send to believe that there`s one God.
Simply believing that there is only One God, would not be enough to qualify one as a believer in the sight of Allah Subhanah. They must believe that He Alone is the Creator of everything in existence; He Alone is the All-Powerful, Omnipotent, All-Mighty, All-Merciful, Most Forgiving, and all His other attributes. And since He is such a Mighty Lord and Creator, then they must accept that He Alone has the right to be worshipped, obeyed, and followed; and He Alone has the right to declare what system of life is acceptable to Him.
For this very purpose of declaring His approved system of life, Allah Subhanah sent His Messengers, and revealed His Divine Revelations. The Messengers of Allah were not sent to only declare to mankind that there is One God; they were sent to invite people to that approved system of life ordained by Allah Subhanah, to give good news to the people who accepted that system of life, and to give a warning to those people who denied it!
Therefore, if one believes in One God, but denies Allah’s Prophets and His Revelations, he obviously cannot follow the system of life approved by Allah, and thus will not be accepted as a believer by Allah Subhanah.
Just as a person believes in the King of a place, but refuses to accept and obey the King’s appointed governors, refuses to accept and abide by the laws of the kingdom, and does whatever he feels, will not be accepted as a good citizen of the state; the person who denies to accept and obey the Prophets of Allah, and refuses to accept and abide by the laws of Allah, and denies the approved system of life ordained by Allah, will not be accepted as a believer by Allah Subhanah. The person who believes in the existence of God, but denies His Prophets and His Revelations will be recognized as a dis-believer in the sight of Allah Subhanah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
