by The Islamic Book Cafe on Jan 08, 2023

In Chapter 2 of Weakness of Faith, the author Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid writes about 8 causes of weak faith. He says: 'There are many reasons for weakness in faith, some of which are associated with symptoms that we have discussed previously, such as falling into sins and excessive preoccupation with worldly pursuits. The following are some additional causes.'

  1. Remaining distant from an atmosphere of faith for a long period of time
  2. Distance from righteous examples 
  3. Failure to seek knowledge and interact with books of early scholars and other books that live in the heart
  4. Presence of a Muslim in an environment saturated with disobedience to Allah
  5. Excessive preoccupation with this world, to the point that the heart becomes a slave to it
  6. Excessive preoccupation with property, spouse and children
  7. Extended hope and expectation that one will still be alive at a future time
  8. An excess of food, sleep, staying up late, and talking and mixing with people
