This is another word extracted from The House Construction base we established. Today, in a religious context, it means “Faith”. Yet in a secular context, the word retains its original meaning of “feeling Secure” derived from the root “امن” or “امان”  for “Security” and symbolized by the act of taking refuge or residence in the House of God, So those who believe in his religion and feel secured are called “مؤمنين” because they have “ايمان” in their beliefs. Today the words are FALSELY translated and understood to mean “believers”or”faithfuls” and “faith” or “belief” respectively. There is no such a thing as faith in islam the way it’s being described. You can have Faith in God’s promise, but not Faith in his Existence. Remember Imam Ali’s Hadith:

“The first of Religion, is the knowing of God”

Similarly with the BELIEF rhetoric. There is no sense in people “choosing” to believe something! I would love for someone to explain that to me. This nonsensical thinking is based on another false interpretation/understanding of the word “صدق” to mean “Truth”, when in reality it means “Consistency”. Although in many areas the two things are indistinguishable but the problem is that when you begin to phrase things such as religious texts with even the slightest inaccuracies, they will lead to millions of people kissing a magical rock in the long run, as is evident today. It’s like a mile long trip that started with .01 degrees of course will end up with you very far from the intended destination. Similarly, subsitituting the word True for Consistent, eventually drove people from asking “consistent with what?” and simply accepting what is being said as True, which is the one eyed way that God always warns about.
