The Good Life

In The Good Life, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan has given excerpts from the Quran, arranged in a special sequence under relevant headings. No interpretation or commentary has been added. It provides an introduction to Islam, which is derived directly from the original revealed source. The name of this book is taken from a verse of the Quran: “Be they men or women those, who believe and do what is right We shall surely endow with a good life: We shall reward them according to their noblest actions.” (16:97) The meaning of the "good life" mentioned in this verse is clear from the phrase "according to their noblest actions." A good life is a life of good actions. For one who believes in God and implements His commandments, God bestows multiple blessings on him. The passages in the book provide both a description of the good life and an authentic example of how it should be lived.
