From Book :
A Present to You! The purpose of this present is to acquaillt readers with the edicts contained in the Qur’an regarding the various aspects of everyday life. Their study will show that In matters of maroof (doing good deeds) these are no different from those required by law or the society in the U.S. This has contributed to its greatness. In the matter of munker (forbidding) there are many differences and the present problems arising in the U.S. are the result of those transgressions of these edicts. However, there is one major difference. A Muslim is required to observe these commandments as an act of worship, namely in obedience to and to seek the pleasure of Allah. Consequently he does not seek ways to get around these. For him these commandments are eternal and no society or authority can make changes in these.
