There are six articles of Iman – believing in Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Last Day, and Predestination.

 

The first article of Iman is believing in the one and only God.

 

Laa ilaaha ilallah

 

Laa ilaaha ilallah,

There is no god but Allah;

Him we worship every day,

With our hearts and words we say.

 

Laa ilaaha ilallah,

There is no god but Allah;

Him we worship every day,

With our actions and our play.

 

Laa ilaaha ilallah,

There is no god but Allah;

Him we worship every day,

To Him only we must pray.

 

The second article of Iman is believing in Allah’s Angels.

 

Cock-A-Doodle-Doo!

(Cock-a-Doodle-Doo)

 

Cock-a-doodle-doo!

Believe in Angels too;

They’re made of light, and though we can’t see,

They certainly are true.

 

Cock-a-doodle-doo!

Some Angels, what they do

Is look for groups who mention Allah,

And pray for Mercy too.

 

Cock-a-doodle-doo!

The cock calls out a clue;

For when you hear the sound of the cock

An Angel is near you!

The third article of Iman is believing in Allah’s Books.

 

By Grace of His Books

(For Want Of A Nail)

 

By Grace of His Books the Word is found,

By Grace of His Word the Truth is found,

By Grace of His Truth the Message is found,

By Grace of His Message the Guidance is found,

By Grace of His Guidance, His Heaven is found,

And all by the Grace of Allah’s True Books.

The fourth article of Iman is believing in Allah’s Messengers.

 

The Messengers

(A Wise Old Owl)

 

The Messengers that walked this earth,

All lived the only way of worth:

To worship One God every day,

Seeking His help to serve Him and obey.

 

The Messenger Allah last called,

Was called Muhammad, sent to all,

He is a man for whom we pray,

Asking Allah to bless him every day.

 

The fifth article of Iman is believing in the Last Day, when we will all be judged by Allah and He will send us either to Heaven or to Hell.

 

Yawm al-Qiyaamah

(Wee Willie Winkie)

 

Yawm al-Qiyaamah is the Last Day,

Good deeds and bad deeds will all be weighed,

Judgement will be Hell-fire, if bad deeds have most weight,

Unless Allah Most Merciful lets you in Heaven’s Gate.

 

Yawm al-Qiyaamah is the Last Day,

Good deeds and bad deeds will all be weighed,

Judgement will be Hell-fire, if bad deeds have most weight,

So pray Allah Most Merciful lets you in Heaven’s Gate.

The sixth article of Iman is believing in Allah’s Predestination – this means believing that Allah already knows everything that is going to happen, and only He can decide what will happen and what will not happen.

 

Patiently

(Georgie Porgie)

 

Patiently persist with each test,

Life’s predestined by the Best,

Only Allah’s Will can be,

Patiently trust Him and see.

 

Patiently persist with each test,

Life’s predestined by the Best,

Only Allah’s Will can be,

Pray to Him, work hard and see.
