The Wisdom in Islam

MV: These are a set of Questions as stated in hadiths in which answers a Bedouin’s question that was asked to the Prophet (PBUH). What interest me is how simple the answers are and how many Muslims these days, actually complain about the questions asked…while the answers are here.

Thanks again to Zeeshan Ghalib for providing me.
