Rules rules rules

Everything  and everywhere there are rules. Road rules, football rules, library rules etc. Have you ever wonder if there are rules in life? How should one live their life? How does one differentiate the good and bad? Looking at the society, how some treasure modesty greatly while others sell their modesty. So who knows the good and bad?

Allâh! Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber, nor sleep overtake Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter . And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His Kursî extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.(255) Al Baqara

The rules in life is written clearly in the Holy Qur’an, the words of Allaah The Almighty, revealed to Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) as a guidance to mankind.

Verily, We have sent down to you (O Muhammad SAW) the Book (this Qur’ân) for mankind in truth. So whosoever accepts the guidance, it is only for his ownself, and whosoever goes astray, he goes astray only for his (own) loss. And you (O Muhammad SAW) are not a Wakîl (trustee or disposer of affairs, or guardian) over them. (41) Az Zumar

There is not a moving (living) creature on earth, nor a bird that flies with its two wings, but are communities like you. We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered.(38) Al Anaam

The wisdom of the laws (rules) that we are to follow, some have been known and some have yet to reach to an understanding to us. An example is the wisdom behind the prohibition of interest which have been known. The strict prohibition of interest in Islam is a result of its deep concern for the moral, social, and economic welfare of mankind. One of it resulted to the rich in becoming richer and the poor becoming poorer.

Let us not be among the ignorant and the disbelievers. If the Message of Truth has been brought to us, we ought to obey in humbleness and submissiveness.

And when they (who call themselves Christians) listen to what has been sent down to the Messenger (Muhammad SAW), you see their eyes overflowing with tears because of the truth they have recognised. They say: “Our Lord! We believe; so write us down among the witnesses. (83) “And why should we not believe in Allâh and in that which has come to us of the truth (Islâmic Monotheism)? And we wish that our Lord will admit us (in Paradise on the Day of Resurrection) along with the righteous people (Prophet Muhammad SAW and his Companions radhiallahu’anhuã).” (84) So because of what they said, Allâh rewarded them Gardens under which rivers flow (in Paradise), they will abide therein forever. Such is the reward of Al-Muhsinûn (the good-doers). (85) Al Maeda

…This day, those who disbelieved have given up all hope of your religion; so fear them not, but fear Me. This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islâm as your religion…(3) Al Maeda

Prepare now in worship and righteousness for we do not know if tomorrow ever comes to us.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 76, Number 425:

Narrated Mujahid:

‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar said, “Allah’s Apostle took hold of my shoulder and said, ‘Be in this world as if you were a stranger or a traveler.” The sub-narrator added: Ibn ‘Umar used to say, “If you survive till the evening, do not expect to be alive in the morning, and if you survive till the morning, do not expect to be alive in the evening, and take from your health for your sickness, and (take) from your life for your death.”

So glorify the praises of your Lord and be of those who prostrate themselves (to Him).(98) And worship your Lord until there comes unto you the certainty (i.e. death).(99) Al Hijr
