The Islamic Ummah has suffered a catastrophic decline. One of the major reasons for this severe downfall was the Muslims lack of understanding of the Islamic belief and how to arrive at it correctly. Many had adopted the Islamic belief (Aqeedah) on a hereditary basis or the blindness of faith. Muslims and non-Muslims alike failed to perceive the true nature of Islam and its intellectual basis. Moreover alien terms such as faith came to be introduced to Islam and used readily, despite Islam's rejection of such a concept and its demand for firm Iman (decisive belief).
