08- Why can’t Muslims have fun?- Why? Sincere Questions, Sincere Answers – Shaykh Hamza Karamali

We often wonder, “Why?”–Why does God want us to worship Him? Why does He send people to the Hellfire? Why can’t Muslims eat pork? Why is life so miserable? Why did the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) fight so many wars? In this series of lessons, Shaykh Hamza Karamali teaches us the etiquette of asking such questions, carefully analyzes what exactly each question means, highlights common logical fallacies, and then shows us how God answers these questions in the Qur’an

The is the third and final episode related to the do’s and don’t’s of Islam. The previous two episodes focussed on the iman-driven life; this episode focusses on the entertainment-driven life. Hamza Karamali explains that the mark of an entertainment-driven life is its focus on this life while ignoring the afterlife. He then goes on to explain that while an iman-driven life sets its sights on the afterlife, it neither requires nor encourages living an austere and boring life in this world. Muslims can and should have fun.
