Verses to Live By: No Imitation in Faith

IQNA – According to verse 285 of Surah Al-Baqara, the faith in God and His messenger cannot be based on imitation.  

“The Apostle and the faithful have faith in what has been sent down to him from his Lord. Each [of them] has faith in Allah, His angels, His scriptures and His apostles. [They declare,] ‘We make no distinction between any of His apostles.’ And they say, ‘We hear and obey. Our Lord, forgive us, and toward You is the return,’” reads the verse.
