Why is Life Full of Struggle?
Comprehending the philosophy of struggle and its necessity for one's advancement is amongst the most difficult concepts to grasp. In this very light hearted discussion, Sheikh Aous Asfar answers this hard question through an intellectual perspective thats based off logical reasoning through the use of beautiful metaphors from school systems, video games and nature.

Verse of Discussion: "And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient, Who, when disaster strikes them, say, 'Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return'. Those are the ones upon whom are blessings from their Lord and mercy. And it is those who are the [rightly] guided." - Surah al-Baqarah, Verses 155-157
