Faith is not just in the heart - definition of Iman
 
Imam Al-Awzâ’î – Allâh have mercy on him – said


Faith (iman) is not sound except with [correct] words. Faith and words are not sound except with [good] works. And faith, words and deeds are not sound except with [the correct] intentions in conformance to the Sunnah. Those who went before us of our Salaf did not separate faith from deeds: deeds are a part of faith, and faith is from [ones deeds]. Iman is a word that brings together these aspects of the religions [of Allah] and is confirmed through [a person's] works

So whoever believes in word, knows in his heart and confirms [his belief] through his works, then this is the strongest handhold that will never break. And whoever says [words of faith] but does not know [faith] in his heart nor confirms it with his works, it will never be accepted of him and he will be in the hereafter from those who suffer in loss


Ibn Battah, Al-Ibânah Al-Kubrâ article 1097
