Would asking questions make you a disbeliever?

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

salam to all muslims many people tell me that the more you question Allah (st) the more you become a none beliver. is that ture or am i just wanting my questions to be answered?  


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Would asking questions make you a disbeliever?

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.


Allah Subhanah has bestowed upon man two things which He has not bestowed on any of His creation, except the Jinns:

Intelligence and the Power of Reasoning,

A free will to choose the path one wishes to lead his life.


Thus, if one does not understand something, it is only natural that with the bestowed faculty of intelligence and power of reasoning, man will have to ask to satisfy his query.


Your Question: many people tell me that the more you question Allah (st) the more you become a none beliver. is that ture

The people who have warned you thus, are absolutely incorrect!


If one’s intentions in asking questions is to satisfy their quest for knowledge and/or understand the deen so that they may be able to follow the Command of their Creator with even more conviction; there is absolutely no harm. In fact, such questions should be encouraged so that people will learn more about the Signs and Attributes of their Merciful Lord; and will thus be able to worship Him with more humility, sincerity, and devotion.


But those questions which some people ask, not to increase their knowledge or understand the deen; but rather to challenge the Truth from Allah: these types of questions are discouraged! That is because whatever answer the person receives, he has no intention to gain knowledge or understand the issue…his only intention is to disprove the Truth of Allah Subhanah….so that he may formulate and justify his own path according to his desires and lusts!


If a believer asks questions in the deen to increase his knowledge; it will make him a better believer; but when the rejecters and deniers of the Truth puts his allegations, he will be portraying his disease of disbelief and hypocrisy, which will only increase!


The good leaders and the true scholars will never stop a person asking any question in the deen; for they know that the deen of Islam is indeed the Truth; and every Command and Decree of Allah and His Messenger (saws) is overflowing with wisdom.


The bad leaders and the scholars who have made the deen a profitable business for themselves in the world at the expense of their hereafter, will always warn the people never to question anything about the deen they teach their followers……simply because they have not taught the Truth from the Quran and Sunnah, or they are afraid that if their followers realize the Truth of Islam, their self-made monopoly on religion will be shattered; thus immediately effecting their business of extorting money and power in the name of religion!

If any scholar or leader warns his followers never to ask questions in Islam; this should be taken as the first sign of his falsehood!


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.


Your Brother in Islam,
