The purpose of this study is to examine Kierkegaard's view of leap of faith and its critique from the perspective of Islamic faith. The method used in this research is analytical-descriptive. Belief in God is the central issue of Kierkegaard's thoughts. On the subject of faith, he pursues two basic points: first, that certainty is unattainable in the humanities. Second, objective research cannot be the basis of faith. Faith directs to decision, and the believer embraces God with the help of the leap of faith. This research, presupposing that Kierkegaard rejects reason and reasoning from the foundations of faith, seeks to answer the question: How can a person seeking faith choose his God from the God of the Jews, the God of Christ, and the God of Islam? Can this person make a choice without a logical flaw? Kierkegaard's alleged faith, in addition to its contradictions and other technical objections, which are devoid of argument, reasoning, and awareness, is like the faith of the common people and children, which is not of any resistance against doubts and challenges and, therefore, of any benefit to its owner.
Keywords: Reason, Leap of Faith, Contradiction, Kierkegaard, Islamic Faith.
