Is it grammatically correct to say:

How is going everything?

And does it convey same meaning as "How is going your life?"

From the Cambridge Dictionary

Questions: wh-questions
Wh-questions begin with what, when, where, who, whom, which, whose, why and how.
Forming wh-questions With an auxiliary verb

We usually form wh-questions with wh- + an auxiliary verb (be, do or have) + subject + main verb or with wh- + a modal verb + subject + main verb

Here, the wh- is how, the auxiliary verb is is, the subject is everything, and the main verb is going. So it should be

  1. How is everything going?

This is a common question asking about someone's life and I assume it means the same as "How is going your life?" (like OP said). "How is going your life?" is incorrect. Again, it would be

  1. How is your life going?

2 asks the same as 1, although 2 might be less common than 1 and possibly rude.


Not quite. Switch to "How is everything going?". It's a common idiom that does have the meaning of "How is your life going", and it's often used as a greeting.
