Like all the other human beings living on this Earth, you too are drawing closer to the end of your life with every hour, every minute, and every second. This is an inescapable reality. One day your life will somehow come to an end, and you shall have to give an account to Allah of all the things you did in this world.
You may have stayed far from religion till now because you saw it as a hardship, did not practice the morals of the Qur'an and may have committed many sins. But, what is important after this moment is to sincerely repent to Allah, do what is best for your next life, and lean towards what is easy. With Allah's permission, it is a reality that you will achieve a different and a better life than you are used to.
The notion of a "good life" seems strange to people. The majority sees a life without any worries, sadness, fears, and anxieties as a dream that they can never attain. Truly, this kind of life is an impossible dream for people who live their lives distant from religion.
Only those who aim to achieve Allah's approval, Heaven, and mercy and those who fear Him and submit to Him can experience a life full of comfort and happiness. Allah promises this good news to believers:
Be they men or women, those who embrace the Faith and do what is right We will surely grant a happy life; We shall reward them according to their noblest deeds. (Surat an-Nahl: 97)
As has been explained in detail throughout the book, the religion Allah has given to people is very easy and without arduousness. Moreover, it relieves a person of all the difficulties, troubles, and suffering in his life. One who lives by religion, achieves success and the best in everything he does under Allah's protection and, as is stated in the verse, lives the best life.
Therefore, you should choose the best and at the same time the easiest life. You can achieve such a life easily by living by the morals of the Qur'an, because, the Qur'an is the word of Allah, Who has created you as He has everything else in this world. By setting aside the acquired teachings of the culture you live in, the people in your society, newspapers, and television, you should lean towards the right religion—which is Allah's word—and think of the ease of living by the teachings of the Qur'an.
Do not forget, if you ignore the fact that religious morality can be comfortably lived, and abandon what is easy, you may face infinite and unexpected pain in the other world.
