AN IMPORTANT QUESTION
A question raised by a Muslim friend “how to know what to do in life according to the book Quran?”
Answer: Very often we have to compromise / ignore what we love to do. It is generally perceived that earning for a living is more important than following our inner quest? In such situation we have to force ourselves to fit in the common pattern of work knowing very well that we are not made for that errand?
That's why it is important to understand and follow our inherent script [al-kitab] before “7 years” of age or at the earliest. Earning must be by product of what we love to do the most. We often become tired and dissatisfied with the monotonous way of life. Do what you love the most so that you don’t need a vacation from your job. This is what the message Book Quran in brief - To Create a Life you don’t need a vacation from.
We need to understand the Quranic term salat [the mechanism of connection] with our inherent script or book of Allah [كِتَابَ اللَّهِ]. Unfortunately very early in life we are being brainwashed or compelled to copy / imitate others thus we ignore the clear signs [ayaats] of the al-kitab present in all of us. The result is we lose confidence in our own abilities / potential / script and we simply follow what is taught to us by our society or follow some holy books which we don’t understand. In this case our society or physical guides are our teachers but not Rehman the teacher of the Quran [not a physical book] or the inner Rasul. Thus we become Mushrik / Kafir by ignoring Kitabil-Allah, our revealed expression [Quran] whose teacher is Al-Rehman.
اتْلُ مَا أُوحِيَ إِلَيْكَ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ تَنْهَى عَنِ الْفَحْشَاءِ وَالْمُنكَرِ وَلَذِكْرُ اللَّهِ أَكْبَرُ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَصْنَعُونَ
29:45 - Follow what was inspired / transmitted to you from the script, and hold / install the mechanism of connection. Indeed the mechanism of connection forbid/prevent concerning the enormous / atrocious deeds and the defiance of Allah, and Allah's remembrance / reminder is greater, and Allah knows what you manufacture / fabricate / imitate.
