so i spoke to a friend 2 day and hes been having doubts about Islam, he didn't pray 5x so it was expected since prayer=closer to God.

He doesn't seem convinced. I told him all the facts i knew and miracles of the Quran ectect and hes like 'yea i know that'

how do i get him back on the truth?


pref non muslims, or non islamophobes that will be like hurr durr 'hes right lmao'

All you can do is suggest him to do a few things to get back into the faith. If he doesn’t want to or shows no interest, there’s not much you can say/do.

You can't do much if he drifts tbh. The society nowadays is so different & loads of influence takes place. In Islam it is said you should tell them right/wrong. If they don't listen you've done your role and it's up to them. I know it is hard seeing a friend drift but keep him in your prayers and always try helping them where you can!
So sorry to hear that's happening! xx

Not much you can do, unfortunately. If you're his friend, you'll respect his beliefs and decisions whether you agree with them or not.

In the end its up to him, like others have said theres not much you can do. As a friend you should be there to support him with whatever he decides he believes.

I don't know if that is a wise move... you might just push him away.

Leave him. As the Q'uran and Surah writes: Allah guides whom he wills and lets astray whom he wills. And whomsoever Allah sends astray, none can guide him.

If he doesn't believe in religion then let him be, nobody likes people who get pushy with it.

It would seem that your "facts" and "miracles" aren't that convincing.

Why are you trying to convince him? Inshallah?

I wouldn't bombard him with anything, he needs to come to his own conclusions of his own volition, and whatever he does decide, you as his friend should repsect.

Your friend may prefer not to practice the religion the same way that you do or may have become atheist or agnostic.
Either way, it is his choice to make.
Best not to say anything about religion unless he asks for your opinion.
You don't want to come across as an annoying religious zealot who tries to force their opinions onto others like the jehovah's witness door knocking teams do.

It was the first time we spoke today about religion... I didn't try convince or push him into anything at all. I just asked him if he prayed and that id send some vids to him.

Where are you all getting that im being annoying or bombarding him with stuff from?

Not really. He just didn't have his prayers answered. Can't have your wishes answered if you don't pray.

Mash Allah you know some arabic! I know some people that could help you take the Shahada!!!

I've always wondered? Do people seriously believe in the power of prayer?

If God is willing to intervene with free will and alter the outcome of a life, then why doesn't he help children being tortured or adults being tortured? Or raped

How does disagreeing with Islam make you an islamophobe.

It's his life and he's free to do as he wishes, you have no business questioning it or trying to put him on the 'right path'.
