Doubts are Rijs – Filth

The doubt is opposite to conviction and may well can spoil one’s Hereafter. The
doubts are also described as ‘rijs’ (filth) in Ahadith, so one’s Eman may be corrupted if there
are doubts in one’s beliefs. However, one may have, occasional doubts due to
forgetfulness, for example in the rituals (i.e., Salat), these should also be avoided but are not
critical in terms of losing one’s faith (Eman) as there is expiation for these doubts which are
due to carelessness and/or forgetfulness. The latter aspect is not covered in the short writeup; however, an example of it is cited in the Appendix
