Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

The best thing is to learn to remove those doubts.

If you mean Usool-e-Deen the roots of religion by the principles of religion, then you must read and increase your knowledge of Theology(Aqaid).

I would recommend you to read the books regarding belief(Theology) to strengthen your beliefs. One of the easiest books to understand:

Once you read and strengthen your knowledge, you will become better in Furoo-e-Deen i.e: the branches of religion(Salat, Sawm,Haj…).

You can use the above site to search for many more free books. The more you learn and implement it the better you will feel and get out of those doubts.

The Usool-Ad-Deen are:

  1. Unity of God (Tawheed)
  2. Justice of God (Adl)
  3. Prophecy(Nubuwwah)
  4. Imamat (Imamah)
  5. Resurrection (Ma’ad)

You can read about them in detail from the link given above. Once your knowledge increases the doubts will decrease and as the doubts decrease the conflicts will go away.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
