:sl:

From my personal experience, I found that non-Muslims think that Islam is like any other religion, ie, an activity restricted to certain times and days and places. Actually, I have found many Muslims who think the same, too. It takes quite a bit of explaining, to Muslims and non-Muslims alike, to get across the idea of ad-din-ul-Islam, that Islam is a complete way of life. I find that it is easier to explain by doing, instead of just talking. Let's beg Allah to give all of us the strength to practice Islam 24/7, and not just 5 times a day, or worse yet, just once a week on Friday, or just twice a year on the eids.

I think Islam is a way of life as life is a struggle following Islam gives us strength to through these difficulties. It's true that when someone hear religion they think Oh so many restrictions in every religion but I think rules and regulations are important for us because it's not always we want it's what Allah wants us to do. If a person is determined to follow Islam in his heart he will get distracted but a muslim should not quit. I know saying is easy but I have experienced this. We always try to make ourselves disciplined nut it but we feel that it's never going to happen but it can happen.

I just remembered this so wanted to share it.

Islam is a religion, that is to say, it is a teaching from God to enable us to live meritoriously.
