How to have personal experience of Faith

Faith is confidence in what we hope for and the assurance that the Allah is working, even though we cannot see it. Faith knows that no matter what the situation, in our lives or someone else's that Allah is working in it. This is how we define and know what faith is.

But how can one really have the personal experience of faith. I have shared many posts based on verses of Qur'an on faith and how a believer can inculcate true and firm faith in himself that there is no god but Allah, the Creator of the entire universe, who created us and will take us back one day for an endless life in the Heavens, In Sha Allah (God willing), and Hell, may Allah protect us from the blazing fire of hell.

But today I came across a short clip by the eminent Muslim scholar Dr Israr Ahmed. And he so eloquently and beautifully explained how one can have personal experience of faith by correlating it with Wiliam Wordsworth beautifully versed poem "I wondered lonely as a cloud", commonly known as The Daffodils. This is the how scholars explain issues by corelating these with something that we get absorbed between the two and learn to understand the true meaning.  

Dr. Israr Ahmad, (1975–2002) was a Pakistani Islamic theologian, philosopher, and Islamic scholar who was followed particularly in South Asia as well as by South Asian Muslims in the Middle East, Western Europe, and North America.

Before you watch  the video below, I would request you to read the poem "I wondered lonely as a cloud" which will allow you better understand the lecture, though Dr Israr related the verses of the poem in his lecture. Now please watch the video below:
