As human beings, it is our nature that as we mellow in age, we also mellow in our life's pursuits. From chasing dreams and ambitions, we move to seeking the purpose and meaning of life.

 

Life, for a Muslim, is like any human being. He has needs to look after, desires to fulfil, ambitions to pursue, and questions about life abound. He is always aware that Allah is the focal point through which he derives his sense and purpose of existence, realises his identity as a human being, and organises his life's conduct and activities.

 

A life of Islam is a life where Islam shines through everything, where the light of the divine emanates from a centre in God and spreads its sunshine to every item in existence, from persons to places to environment to activities such that they form a matrix of unity between heaven and earth and embodied in the person of the human.

 

This book attempts to show the centrality of God in the life of Muslims and how God's presence makes all the difference to the kind of life one lives.
