Ask an Alim

I am losing all faith in God


I am Muslim and I am losing all faith in God and I am nearly agonstic because I am short and no one in my family is( my elder brother 6’0 and I am only 5’6) I only think why me? Can any alim please explain me and help me because I am to reluctant and hesitant to leave prophets PBUH path


Salamun Alaykum

Thank you for your query.

I would like to mention some points below:

  1. Being short or having the normal height is never a proof to be agnostic same as having a tall height is never a proof to be agnostic.
  2. 5’6 is known to be a normal and good height, so you shouldn’t feel bad about that. This only happens when one compares to others. If you compare 6’0 to the olden days then this height is too short to be compared to the height of Hazrat Habeel or some Prophets’ graves which are very long.
  3. Height or color doesn’t matter in Allah’s view. What matters is the spiritual state of the human being and being God wary. The purpose of creation is not to compare the physical body rather Allah swt evaluates the human being based on the spiritual status.

 إِنَّ أَكْرَمَكُمْ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ أَتْقَاكُمْ

 Indeed the noblest of you in the sight of Allah is the most Godwary among you. (Hujuraat/13)

  1. Allah swt being Just and a merciful God has sent 124,000 Prophets and 12 Imams (as) for the guidance of human beings. How can this beautiful God be unmerciful and not loving His creation? Allah swt loves His creation and wants every human being to obey Him and gain the spiritual status for which HE had promised the paradise.
  2. I would recommend you to go through Nick Vujicic’s life. Nick Vujicic was born with a rare disease called Tetra-Amelia syndrome, which means he was born with no arms and no legs. The person without hands and legs can become a bestselling author and motivational speaker who inspires millions of people to not give up on themselves. (
    If a non-Muslim has hope and can stay happy in his life without hands and legs, then why can’t a Muslim live a prosperous life while having hope in Allah swt, the Most Merciful who has bestowed us with all the blessings in the form of body parts and not being a disabled person. Even if there is a disability for a person that is counted as a physical disability but the spiritual ability is the ability that can help the person increase the spiritual levels for which one should always be thankful to Allah swt.
  3. Don’t let Satan bring illogical things to your mind to move you away from your Creator, the Creator who loves you and expects you to follow His commands.
  4. You can read this great book on theology/Aqa’id “Fifty lessons on principles of belief for youth” especially Part 2 of the book which discusses the Justice of Allah swt (
