Strengthening Iman against Fitnah

Q 2: What are the ways to strengthen one's Iman (faith/belief) in the face of the many temptations that confront us today (on televisions, in streets, and from the western societies)?

A: There are many ways to strengthen Iman, among them are: observing acts of obedience and abstaining from prohibitions, keeping company with pious people, frequently reciting the Noble Qur'an and contemplating its meanings, studying the Sunnah (acts, sayings or approvals of the Prophet), constant engaging in Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah), making Du`a' (supplication), and being totally dependant on Allah and in dire need of Him.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
