  Video: Islamic Way of Life
In his talk, the Maulana explains that contrary to popular belief, Islam does not seek to implement its teachings by force. Propagating a clear division of work, Islam distinguishes between administration and social system. While the rulers are made responsible for managing administration, non-governmental organisations are asked to take charge of education and reform in the society. He concludes by saying that unless the Muslims recognize the principle of division of work, they will not be able to grasp the correct line of action.

Human Potential: The occurrence of an atomic explosion in matter turns it into a vastly more powerful substance. The human personality, too, contains huge, latent potential. This potential bursts out into the open when there is an eruption within one's soul. It breaks free when some shattering disaster afflicts one. The strings that have held one down are torn apart and begin to vibrate to the tune of life.

Q. What is the definition of success according to Islam?
A. According to Islamic teachings, true success is the success in the hereafter. One who lives the life of a true believer will be ushered into paradise in the afterlife. God has given man the freedom to live life as he wants. But this life is a test. If he misuses his freedom, he will be punished by God in the afterlife, but if he lives life the way he should, he will be rewarded and will spend the rest of his days in paradise. To stay on the right path, one needs to observe sabr, or patience. And patience has its rewards, both in this world and in the Hereafter.
