My name is Chandra Raja, I am from India. I am working as assistant manager accounts, I would like to ask two questions. Number one, as you say, Islam is a way of life as per the Quran. Okay? What do you mean by way of life? What are the explanation for that? Can I get
the question that in my earlier answer I said Islam is Dean it's a way of life. He's asking what do you mean by way of life, way of life means how do you lead a life? What is good for you, what is bad for you what is harmful, what you should read what you should not, there are a few do's and don'ts few things which are compulsory in life.
Few things which are prohibited the remaining a mobile optional. So the Quran is a guide is an instruction manual for the human being, that how a life should be led, that how when you buy a machine, you have instruction manual, what is good, what is bad, how should operate. So the way of life is how should you lead your life? And what are the good thing that you should not Rob? You should not cheat? You should be truthful, you should pray to Almighty God is free of charge to the poor. All these instructions, like when you appear for an examination rather, if you want to pass the test in science, what do you do? You read the textbook? you memorize it and you appear for the
paper. Allah says in the Quran in surah mole chapter number 67, verse number two, allergic helical mortal hatha, it is allow us created that and life to test which of you is good indeed. So this book is the instruction manual. You read it, and you live your life according to how a creator wants. If you follow the instruction correctly, you will go to Paradise. If you disobey, if you break the rules, then you don't go to Paradise, then you go to hell. So this is a way of life mentioned in the Quran and the Hadith, that the thing of the last and fun messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Hope that answers the question brother, sorry for interrupting one more. Suppose, as you said,
that it is the way of life but following the way of life as is said in the Quran, there are a lot of hurdles
which we have to come across in each and every day of life. Could you explain me brother said that following the way of life many hurdles will come rather
by my educational medical doctor
to pass my degree Bachelors of medicine, you know when you pass BA degree, the test is easy.
But when you pass via you become only a graduate
when you pass graduation MBBS Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery, it's more difficult. We had to study for 18 hours a day, sleep less but once you pass we had a better honor Dr. Dr in front of a name. So higher the degree more difficult is the test. So this Quran shows your way of life. Once you pass this test, you go to Jenna, you will paradise heard is about to come. When you sit for an examination, there are bound to be some questions which are difficult. That does not mean run away from the examination. So hurdles are bound to come but this hurdle will take you towards Allah subhanho wa Taala unless testing you. If there are no hurdles, then marry the test.
If there are no hurdles, whether in life, then vary the test. As I mentioned earlier, Almighty God has created life and death to test which of you is good indeed, if there are no hurdles and marry the test. Allah wants to test you whether you follow His commandments or not. So this life better the test for the hereafter. Unless there are hurdles, how will you be tested? You can't down to appear for an examination or to study. I don't read anything around the path. How can you pass
the question? Whether
