In Paradise they will ask one another about the guilty (polytheists, criminals, and disbelievers), (and they will ask them), “What has caused you to enter Hell?” They will say: “We were not of those who used to offer the prayer, nor did we feed the poor; and we used to talk falsehood (all that which God hated) with vain talkers and we used to belie the Day of Recompense, until there came to us (the death) that is certain.” (Quran 74:40-47)

The dwellers of Paradise will call out to the dwellers of Hell: “We have found that what our Lord promised us is true. Have you found that what your Lord promised you is true?” They will say: “Yes, we have!”... (Quran 7:44)

The dwellers of Hell will call out to the dwellers of Paradise: “Throw down some water to us, or some of what Allah has provided you with.” They will say: “God has forbidden them to the disbelievers.” (Quran 7: 50)

O you who have believed, whoever of you should revert from his religion - Allah will bring forth [in place of them] a people He will love and who will love Him [who are] humble toward the believers, strong against the disbelievers; they strive in the cause of Allah and do not fear the blame of a critic. That is the favor of Allah; He bestows it upon whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.

Al Maidah 5:54


Be patient with those who call upon their Lord morning and evening, seeking His pleasure. Do not turn your eyes away from them, desiring the adornments of the life of this world. And do not obey one whose heart We have made heedless of Our remembrance, who follows his desires and whose affair is at loss.

Al Kahf 18:28


There certainly has come to you a messenger from among yourselves. He is concerned by your suffering, anxious for your well-being, and gracious and merciful to the believers. But if they turn away, then say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “Allah is sufficient for me. There is no god ˹worthy of worship˺ except Him. In Him I put my trust. And He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne.”

At Tawbah 9:128-129

Surely We have revealed the Quran to thee, in portions.
So wait patiently for the judgment of thy Lord, and obey not a sinner or an ungrateful one among them.
And glorify the name of thy Lord morning and evening.
And during part of the night adore Him, and glorify Him throughout a long night.
Surely these love the transitory life and neglect a grievous day before them.
We created them and made firm their make, and, when We will, We can bring in their place the like of them by change.
Surely this is a Reminder; so whoever will, let him take a way to his Lord.
And you will not, unless Allah please. Surely Allah is ever Knowing, Wise —
He admits whom He pleases to His mercy; and the wrongdoers — He has prepared for them a painful chastisement.
76:23-31

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

A questioner asks about the chastisement to befall
The disbelievers — there is none to avert it —
From Allah, Lord of the ways of Ascent.
To Him ascend the angels and the Spirit in a day the measure of which is fifty thousand years.
So be patient with a goodly patience. Surely they see it far off, And We see it nigh.
The day when the heaven is as molten brass,
And the mountains are as wool; And no friend will ask of friend,
(Though) they are made to see them. The guilty one would fain redeem himself from the chastisement of that day by his children,
And his wife and his brother, And his kin that gave him shelter, And all that are in the earth — then deliver him —
By no means! Surely it is a flaming Fire, Plucking out the extremities —
It shall claim him who retreats and turns his back,
And hoards then withholds. Surely man is created impatient —Fretful when evil afflicts him,
And niggardly when good befalls him — Except those who pray,
Who are constant at their prayer,
And in whose wealth there is a known right. For the beggar and the destitute,
And those who accept the truth of the day of Judgment:
And those who are fearful of the chastisement of their Lord —
Surely the chastisement of their Lord is (a thing) not to be felt secure from —
And those who restrain their sexual passions,

70:1-29

Surely the dutiful have with their Lord Gardens of bliss.
Shall We then make those who submit as the guilty?
What is the matter with you? How do you judge? Or have you a book wherein you read
That you shall surely have therein what you choose?
Or have you covenants from Us on oath, extending to the day of Resurrection, that yours is surely what you judge?
Ask them which of them will vouch for that. Or have they associate-gods? Then let them bring their associates, if they are truthful. On the day when there is a severe affliction, and they are called upon to prostrate themselves, but they are not able —
Their looks cast down, abasement will cover them. And they were indeed called upon to prostrate themselves, while yet they were safe.
So leave Me alone with him who rejects this announcement. We shall overtake them by degrees, from whence they know not.
And I bear with them, surely My plan is firm.
Or dost thou ask from them a reward, so that they are burdened with debt?
Or is the unseen with them so that they write (it) down?
So wait patiently for the judgment of thy Lord, and be not like the Companion of the fish, when he cried while he was in distress.
Had not favour from his Lord reached him, he would certainly have been cast down on naked ground, while he was blamed.
Then his Lord chose him, and He made him of the righteous.
And those who disbelieve would almost smite thee with their eyes when they hear the Reminder, and they say: Surely he is mad!
And it is naught but a Reminder for the nations.
68:34-52

He it is Who made the earth subservient to you, so go about in the spacious sides thereof, and eat of His sustenance.
And to Him is the rising (after death).
Do you feel secure that He Who is in the heaven will not make the earth to swallow you up?
Then lo! it will shake.
Or do you feel secure that He Who is in the heaven will not send on you a violent wind?
Then shall you know how (truthful) was My warning!
And certainly those before them denied, then how (terrible) was My disapproval!
Do they not see the birds above them spreading and contracting (their wings)?
Naught upholds them save the Beneficent. Surely He is Seer of all things.Or who is it that will be a host for you to help you against the Beneficent? The disbelievers are in naught but delusion.
Or who is it that will give you sustenance, if He should withhold His sustenance?
Nay, they persist in disdain and aversion.
Is, then, he who goes prone upon his face better guided or he who walks upright on a straight path?
Say: He it is Who brought you into being and made for you ears and eyes and hearts. Little thanks it is you give!
Say: He it is Who multiplies you in the earth and to Him you will be gathered.
And they say: When will this threat be (executed), if you are truthful?
Say: The knowledge is with Allah only, and I am only a plain warner.
But when they see it nigh, the faces of those who disbelieve will be grieved, and it will be said: This is that which you used to call for.
Say: Have you considered if Allah should destroy me and those with me — rather He will have mercy on us — yet who will protect the disbelievers from a painful chastisement?
Say: He is the Beneficent — we believe in Him and on Him do we rely. So you will come to know who it is that is in clear error.

Those who disbelieve claim that they will not be resurrected. Say, “Yes indeed, by my Lord, you will be resurrected; then you will be informed of everything you did; and that is easy for God.”
So believe in God and His Messenger, and the Light which We sent down. God is Aware of everything you do.
The Day when He gathers you for the Day of Gathering—that is the Day of Mutual Exchange. Whoever believes in God and acts with integrity, He will remit his misdeeds, and will admit him into gardens beneath which rivers flow, to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme achievement.
But as for those who disbelieve and denounce Our revelations—these are the inmates of the Fire, dwelling therein forever; and what a miserable fate!
No disaster occurs except by God’s leave. Whoever believes in God, He guides his heart. God is Aware of everything.
So obey God, and obey the Messenger. But if you turn away—it is only incumbent on Our Messenger to deliver the clear message.
God, there is no god but He; and in God let the believers put their trust.

64:7-13

In the name of God, the Gracious, the Merciful.
Everything in the heavens and the earth glorifies God the Sovereign, the Holy, the Almighty, the Wise.
It is He who sent among the unlettered a messenger from themselves; reciting His revelations to them, and purifying them, and teaching them the Scripture and wisdom; although they were in obvious error before that.
And others from them, who have not yet joined them. He is the Glorious, the Wise.
That is God’s grace, which He grants to whomever He wills. God is Possessor of limitless grace.
The example of those who were entrusted with the Torah, but then failed to uphold it, is like the donkey carrying works of literature. Miserable is the example of the people who denounce God’s revelations. God does not guide the wrongdoing people.
Say, “O you who follow Judaism; if you claim to be the chosen of God, to the exclusion of the rest of mankind, then wish for death if you are sincere.”
But they will not wish for it, ever, due to what their hands have advanced. God knows well the wrongdoers.
Say, “The death from which you flee will catch up with you; then you will be returned to the Knower of the Invisible and the Visible, and He will inform you of what you used to do.”
O you who believe! When the call is made for prayer on Congregation Day, hasten to the remembrance of God, and drop all business. That is better for you, if you only knew.
Then, when the prayer is concluded, disperse through the land, and seek God’s bounty, and remember God much, so that you may prosper.
Yet whenever they come across some business, or some entertainment, they scramble towards it, and leave you standing. Say, “What is with God is better than entertainment and business; and God is the Best of providers.”

“Allaah has promised those among you who believe and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the land, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practise their religion which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islam). And He will surely, give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided)they (believers) worship Me and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me”

Hey guys I am a newbie but I feel like my faith crippling
Iman is ever increasing and decreasing. If you don't nurture it with reminders eventually it will feel "crippling" as belief is what holds you back from the evils of the nafs.

If you feel your faith is limiting you then you're on a dangerous path as what is this life of 100 years compared to the next one that never ends? We are here to be tried. Period. If you don't work on your relationship with the Almighty you will have all of eternity to regret it.

Probably not the thread to discuss this, so you can send a pm if you like. If nothing else I suggest you get some Muslim friends as they will strengthen you and remind you to fear God. When judgement day arrives, many will beg to be sent back here to put forth some good. Not a single soul will be able to. This life is it. Make the best of it while you have a chance.

Ask Allah to aid you in His worship and remembrance truly there is nothing on earth that is as sweet or as essential as the remembrance of Allah and His many favours.<3 If we live in a state of gratitude for the multitude of blessings we will always have Him in our heart. Remember your next breath is a free gift that is unearned!
"Bismillah
Every believer suffers from weak or low emaan/(Faith/belief) once in a while; as the Prophet
ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him)
said, “Emaan wears out in one’s heart, just as the dress wears out (becomes thin). Therefore, ask Allah to renew emaan in your hearts.” [Mustadrak Al Hakim, Authentic]

Low emaan can easily plunge one into sorrow and despair, sadness and anxiety, as emaan is a safeguard from this. When one suffers from low emaan, it paralyzes one from doing good deeds and removes the productivity in one’s life and worship. One of the beautiful aspects in our deen is that Allah and His Messenger have prescribed actions for us when we are suffering from weak emaan and sorrow, and one of the most potent cures is duaa. (supplication)

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ الْهَمِّ وَالْحُزْنِ وَالْعَجْزِ وَالْكَسَلِ وَالْبُخْلِ وَالْجُبْنِ وَضَلَعِ الدَّيْنِ وَغَلَبَةِ الرِّجَالِ
Allahumma inni a’udhu bika minal-hammi wal-Ḥuzni wal-‘ajazi wal-kasli wal-bukhli wal-jubni wa ḍala’id-dayni wa ghalabatir-rijal.
O Allah, I take refuge in You from anxiety and sorrow, weakness and laziness, miserliness and cowardice, the burden of debts and from being overpowered by men.

May Allah the Most High make your journey towards Him a path of ease. Ameen!
Pondering upon the Quran and reciting it also helps very much. Here is surah Al-Intifar 1-19.
Allah in the name of The Most Affectionate, the Merciful.
When the heaven is cleft
And when the stars fall off
And when the seas are flown away,
And when the graves are scratched,
Each soul shall then know what it has sent forth and what has been left behind.
'O man, what has deceived you with regard to your Lord, the Noble one
Who created you, then perfected you, and then proportioned you
Into whatever form He willed, He fashioned you.
Nothing but you belies the judgement.
And undoubtedly, above you, are some guardians.
Honorable, scribes
They know what you do.
Undoubtedly, the righteous are in bliss.
And undoubtedly, the evil doers are necessarily in Hell.
They shall enter it on the Day of Judgement.
And they will not be able to hide therefrom.
And what you know, what the Day of Judgement is'.
Again, what you know, what the Day of Judgement is'.
The day when no soul shall have power for any other soul. And the entire command on that day is of Allah.

Here is the video of this surah:

[ Allah praises] those who convey the messages of Allah and fear Him and do not fear anyone but Allah . And sufficient is Allah as Accountant.
Muhammad is not the father of [any] one of your men, but [he is] the Messenger of Allah and last of the prophets. And ever is Allah , of all things, Knowing.
O you who have believed, remember Allah with much remembrance
And exalt Him morning and afternoon.
It is He who confers blessing upon you, and His angels [ask Him to do so] that He may bring you out from darknesses into the light. And ever is He, to the believers, Merciful.
Their greeting the Day they meet Him will be, "Peace." And He has prepared for them a noble reward.
O Prophet, indeed We have sent you as a witness and a bringer of good tidings and a warner.

Prohibited for you are carrion, blood, the flesh of swine, and animals dedicated to other than God; also the flesh of animals strangled, killed violently, killed by a fall, gored to death, mangled by wild animals—except what you rescue, and animals sacrificed on altars; and the practice of drawing lots. For it is immoral. Today, those who disbelieve have despaired of your religion, so do not fear them, but fear Me. Today I have perfected your religion for you, and have completed My favor upon you, and have approved Islam as a religion for you. But whoever is compelled by hunger, with no intent of wrongdoing—God is Forgiving and Merciful.
al Maidah :3

Indeed, We have sent down the Book to you ˹O Prophet˺ in truth, so worship Allah ˹alone˺, being sincerely devoted to Him.
Indeed, sincere devotion is due ˹only˺ to Allah. As for those who take other lords besides Him, ˹saying,˺ “We worship them only so they may bring us closer to Allah,” surely Allah will judge between all1 regarding what they differed about. Allah certainly does not guide whoever persists in lying and disbelief.
Had it been Allah’s Will to have offspring, He could have chosen whatever He willed of His creation. Glory be to Him! He is Allah—the One, the Supreme.
He created the heavens and the earth for a purpose. He wraps the night around the day, and wraps the day around the night. And He has subjected the sun and the moon, each orbiting for an appointed term. He is truly the Almighty, Most Forgiving.
He created you ˹all˺ from a single soul,1 then from it He made its mate.2 And He produced for you four pairs of cattle.3 He creates you in the wombs of your mothers ˹in stages˺, one development after another, in three layers of darkness.4 That is Allah—your Lord! All authority belongs to Him. There is no god ˹worthy of worship˺ except Him. How can you then be turned away?
If you disbelieve, then ˹know that˺ Allah is truly not in need of you, nor does He approve of disbelief from His servants. But if you become grateful ˹through faith˺, He will appreciate that from you. No soul burdened with sin will bear the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return, and He will inform you of what you used to do. He certainly knows best what is ˹hidden˺ in the heart.
39:2-7
