Of every believer can be said the same as of a Muslim.
If we are Muslim, Christian, Jew, just because we were born through Muslim, Christian or Judaic parents and we do not possess sufficient understanding of Islam or the faith in the Divine Creator Allah, the Elohim Hashem Jehovah, then that means faith has not passed through our heart.
Muslims, Christians and Jews should all have the same God, who is the God of Abraham (Ibrahim)and also was/is the God of Isaiah, Zecharia, Jeshua (Isa, Ishi, Jesus, Chesu, Jezus) the Christ or Messiah.
Allah in His Word, given to mankind by the Torah or Tawraat and other writings like the Prophets, the Injil (the Good News of the Gospel) and the Quran (Koran) made it very clear that we as human beings have to use our brains to come to fully understanding and to make choices ourselves. God’s Word is there for all to find, for all to read and to study. Without taking time for that Word of God it will be more difficult to come to comprehension, but the God of order has created human being in His image and as such all have some connection with Him and some feeling for Him.
Faith should be making that we are willing to drink and eat the Wisdom of God provide by the manna in the Holy Scriptures.
The Bible preceded the Quran, which mentions them often and emphasises that they contain God’s guidance.
We read at Al ‘Imran :3,4 NJD:
He has revealed to you the Book with the Truth, confirming the scriptures which preceded it; for He has already revealed the Torah and the Gospel [Injil] for the guidance of men.” (See also Al-Ma’idah 5:46,47)
By listening to the heart, the inner being, every human being would be able to hear about his or her Creator.
Problem with society is that they often prefer to listen to human ideas and as such many wrong ideas entered humankind. People having come divided made also that many did get wrong ideas about the other, or did not get come to see the many differences in the many different groups.
For example: many Muslims do believe that professed Christians believe in the Trinity. They do not see that real Christians only believe in One True God like the Bible says. The Trinity is a false teaching and totally unBiblical.
Deu 6:4 MKJV Hear, O, Israel. Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.
Deu 6:4 SVD «إِسْمَعْ يَا إِسْرَائِيلُ: الرَّبُّ إِلهُنَا رَبٌّ وَاحِدٌ.
We should take the warning given in those books seriously. From those writings we also know we shall be judged accordingly how we reacted on the Words of God. Allah offers Himself to be found every day everywhere. He calls His people. We only have to open our ear and eyes, willing to hear and see.
All Holy Scriptures provided by Allah should be used by man and is given for guidance (Hebrews 1:1). Allah controlled and directed what happened and always has given His holy men or prophets at the right time when it was necessary to intervene. Allah did so to prevent the infiltration of mistakes and to ensure that the writings would be accurate, precise, and in harmony with His purpose.
- Holy Quran admonishes those who do not think and research
- Holy Quran condemns those who do not have faith but just portray so
- being faithful (urdu translation: momin) = different from being Muslim
- If Muslim just because born through Muslim parents + we do not possess sufficient understanding of Islam => faith has not passed through our heart
We may not forget that the word “Islam” comes from the Arabic meaning submission or surrender – however, it was derived from the root word “salam”. From this root word, you can also derive the words peace and safety. Many people feel that Islam implies some sort of enslavement to Allah, but others find it more helpful to define the word “Islam” as surrender.
We should understand the word Islam as a surrendering to God and a willingness to come under His covenant.
God has given the world to man but everything and every phenomenon in the world other than man is still administered totally by God-made laws, ie. they are obedient to God and submissive to His laws, and as such you could also say they are in the “State of Islam”. Often this fact is overlooked by Muslims and other people.
Christians also too often forget the meaning of the original words and compare the situation or put a limited view on the words because of the present conditions and misuse of the word by certain Muslim groups.
Faith in God can only grow when man is willing to answer the call of the Most High God, Allah, the Adonai Elohim Hashem Jehovah. From this Supreme Being man has received many gifts, but how he wants to use them is up to him. Man possesses the qualities of intelligence and choice, thus he is invited to submit to the good will of God and obey His law, ie, becoming a devote Jew or Christian or a Muslim.
Those Muslims and those Christians or atheists, who think Allah is only the God of fundamentalist people, do forget that the word Allah means “God” and is a title also used by Arabic speaking Jews and Christians and in several other languages than English when it is written with a capital, to denote the Divine Creator of heaven and earth. The word Allah in the Arabic language and several other languages means God, or more accurately, The One and Only Eternal God, All Powerful Creator of the Universe, Lord of all lords, King of all kings, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful. It is that Only One True God Who everybody should come to know and to worship.

As per Holy Quran only faith that’s based on a thought process is respected.
Sura Al-e-Imran verse 191:
“And those who ponder on the shape of skies and earth say ‘Oh our God, you have not created them without benefit’ ”
On the other hand Holy Quran admonishes those who do not think and research.
Sura shua’ra verse 74:
“They said that we have seen our ancestors doing the same. ”
Also Holy Quran condemns those who do not have faith but just portray so.
Sura hujrat verse 14:
“These Arab say that we are faithful (urdu translation: hum eman laye). So (O’ prophet PBUH) tell them ‘you are not faithful (urdu translation: tum eman nahi laye) but you should say that you have embraced Islam, because yet faith has not even passed through your heart.’ ”
