One of the main obstacles that we face as we traveled on our path to Allah subhanho wa Taala is the understanding that many of us have, that we cannot enjoy the pleasures and the good things in life. If we want to practice our faith, we feel that if we practice, we're going to be shackled down and everything is going to be forbidden for us and we can enjoy the life that we live in. But we look into the Quran Allah subhana wa Taala tells us what tele femur attack on low down on earth. Well, Athens and I'll see you back a minute duniya what is the meaning of this I am, Allah is telling us to take advantage of the opportunity that we have here in this life in order to prepare ourselves

for the hereafter. But at the same time that we can enjoy the life that we live in, we can enjoy the good things in life. As long as we don't fall into that which is haram. Another misconception that many of us have is that in order to have fun and to enjoy life, that we have to do that which is haram, when Allah subhanaw taala has blessed us with so many Halal alternatives. Once we understand this principle, that our main focus in this life as Muslims is to focus on being successful in this life to be successful in the hereafter. But at the same time, we can enjoy the pleasures around us and the enjoyment of this life and 100 fashion. Once we understand this, it makes traveling down the

path to Allah subhanho wa Taala easy, and it's going to make us successful and achieving peace and happiness in this life, and then achieving peace and happiness and the agenda and the hereafter in shallow Tala.
