Pious adherence to the faith
One who has the faith is a mu'min (believer).
alt. of Imaum
Iman in Islamic theology denotes a believer's faith in the metaphysical aspects of Islam. Its most simple definition is the belief in the six articles of faith, known as arkān al-īmān. If a Muslim does not believe in any one of the 6 pillars of Iman then they are not a true Muslim. The term Iman has been delineated in both the Quran as well as the famous Hadith of Gabriel. According to the Quran, Iman must be accompanied by righteous deeds and the two together are necessary for entry into Paradise. In the Hadith of Gabriel, Iman in addition to Islam and Ihsan form the three dimensions of the Islamic religion. There exists a debate both within and outside Islam on the link between faith and reason in religion, and the relative importance of either. Several scholars contend that faith and reason spring from the same source and hence must be harmonious.
