I have faith in my religion Islam. How can i have this faith, when i don't even see/smell/hear/touch/taste can the God (Allah that i worship). How can i have this faith, when i don't even met the messenger (Prophet Muhammad SAW) who deliver this teaching? How can i have faith in Hell and Heaven when i can't see it and there is no scientific evidences to prove it?
Thats why its a matter of faith. I'm confident belie of the idea, person and value that Islam has. Of course the faith is build up by the surrounding factors such as teaching, logics and comparison....but ultimately its up to you yourself to have this faith.
But what i want to talk here is not about faith in Religion but a faith in relationship. To the lesser extend, a couple should have good faith in each other. But many would argue (and mostly women), that a couple should have something to hold on, not just a faith, such as the holy 3 letter words "i love you".
A 3 letter contract between men and women (sometimes in same sexes) which loosely tied themselves and at any time can be revoke and the best part, cannot be challenged in any court of law in the whole world. Hecks, that why the westerner come up with the prenuptial.
Well that should be the basis of relationship, if we refer to the western definition of relationship. Take for example in the many hollywood movie, there would be a scene where the man says "I love you" then kissed the girl and the rest is history (as always). But that does not necessarily be the only way.
Many couples who go down that road, still end up break up. So you cannot hold on to the the letter words, or how passionate your relationship has been or other factors. Sometimes you just have to have the faith in a person....yes you may end up heart broken or live happily ever after.
Women need security and something firm when it comes to relationship. That is their nature, it has been and always will be like this. But my advise is, don't take them for granted or seriously just because they don't or do tell you the 3 letter words.
Just have faith!!
