The prominent Muslim scholar, Sheikh Muhammad Iqbal Nadvi, Director and Imam of Al-Falah Islamic Center, Oakville, Ontario, Canada, states: Faith increases by good deeds, and decreases by bad ones. If one is following the right way and acting righteously, then of course they will feel secure and being in constant connection with Allah. But if one is not, then how will the connection be made.
We are servants of Allah, and we have to fulfil our duties and obligations towards our Master, the Glorious and Most Magnificent. We should continue our commitments even though we don’t feel His presence. Commitment to faith is not based on personal feelings, but rather on responsibilities and obligations.
therefore, I advise you to continue praying, reading Qur’an and acting righteously and to not discontinue this at any time or under any circumstances. If we feel the presence of Allah, that is the fruit of our devotion, but not the reason of your commitment.”
