Shall Islam be fashioned for us to absorb it? Can we go to the beaches for a lovely outing and still be true believers of Islam? Do we have to pray 24/7 in order to go to Paradise? Do we have to be saints and extraordinarily pious order to fulfill our Islamic duties on earth? What about the spiritual vacuum of the aching and thirsty hearts of humans? How can we fill that vacuum lingering in the soul and heart of humans?

How is it possible that spirituality come together with materialism without any conflict? How do we best apply the Islamic teachings amid life allurement and what is the best way to?

In this Qur’anic verse, {But seek, through that which Allah has given you, the home of the Hereafter; and [yet], do not forget your share of the world. And do good as Allah has done good to you} (Al-Qasas: 77)”. Does not this verse confirm that we need to strike a balance between the deeds we do for this life and the ones we do for the Afterlife?

All these are notions and questions that frequently come to minds. They deserve a proper attention in order to fully comprehend what Islam stands for. Is it a religion of rigidity or moderation? Is it a faith that gives a room to different variations and covers all needs of human beings? Is it a religion that focuses only on this life or what happens after death? Or, does it cater also for the needs of man on this life? Does it tackle the materialistic needs of the body or the spiritual needs of soul? Finding answer to these questions is what this folder all about!
