Islam as Religion

A very well written summary of the three fundamental aspects of the ‘deen of Islam’ – iman (faith), islam ( the practice or way of that faith) and ihsan (excellence or beauty). Used together each word has it’s own meaning, but used seperately, they can be interchangeable. E.g., saying “you’re iman is strong” can be taken to also mean ‘you are a strong muslim’ or ‘your practice of the deen has ihsan’, but if you say “you’re iman is strong and you have ihsan” that means the person has a strong faith and excellence in character and personality.
Allah bless you all, assalamu alaikum (peace be with you all)
