I'm A Muslim. I believe in ALLAH, and the teachings of the Quran guide me through life. I've faced many tough times in life, and I dont think I could have gotten through them without having faith in ALLAH.
When I pray, I feel so peaceful, I feel like all my tensions, stresses, all my unhappiness has vanished, and my whole being has just been overcome by this radiance. Hope, I guess. When I'm down, I always say this "Ya Allah, help me get out this depression" and I start to feel calm and light, like nothing can touch me. When I'm happy and something satisfactory has happened, I thank ALLAH for what he has given me.
You see, by being a believer I always feel like I've got someone. Sometimes, I dont need humans, I just need a heart to heart with god, and I know his there for me. I feel like, with god by my side,nothing bad can come to me.
And thats an amazing feeling, knowing that somewhere, somehow, someone is always here for me. Listening, and answering my prayers. Not all of them ofcourse, but I believe that his got something better in store for me.
Yet, I know theres many people around the world who have lost their faith or dont believe at all? Why? Have you not got what you want from god? and what makes you dismiss the idea of god?
I'm just curious, because I know, life for me without my faith would be hell for me.
And also, what religion are you?
