What is the purpose of life
I seek refuge in Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD), from the Shaitan.
Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD)’s name I begin, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
All praise be to Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD), Lord of the worlds,
Who has disposed all matters through His arrangements thereof?
Who has fairly composed His creation and given it excellent form, good structure and proportion.
And may blessings and salutation be invoked upon Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), the bondsman of Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD),
Holy Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) loved one and chosen one, who was His bearer of good tidings and His Warner, from the lines of whose brow the radiance of Prophet Hood, shone forth.
Auspicious prayers are on Ahl-e-Bait and on all his just and devoted Companions.
“Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things.
Who has created death and life, that He may test you which of you is best in deed?
And He is the All-Mighty, the Oft-Forgiving.” [Al-Quran: 67:1-2].
What are we here for?
(Why Are We Here? A Question for All of you
Why are we here? This question has both plagued and challenged mankind for generations.
Have you ever asked yourself these questions?
"What is the purpose of L I F E?":-(Such a fundamental and important question), they will not tell you what they have concluded through observation or analytical reasoning.
Rather, in most cases, they will simply tell you what someone else said, or they will tell you what is "commonly presumed" by others,
i.e., what my father/Mother said purpose of life is, what the imam of my mosque said the purpose of life is, teacher in school said, what my friend said, etc.
If I ask anyone about the purpose of eating or why do we eat, everyone will say [in one word or another] that it is for nutritional purposes, because nutrition sustains life.
(They say that a fool lives to eat and a wise man eats to live.
But then the question remains: for what purpose does the wise man live?
Living is not an end by itself.
There has to be a purpose for man to live for. So what is this purpose?)
If I ask anyone why they work, they will say because it's a necessity in order to support them and to provide for the needs of their families.
If I ask anyone why they sleep, why they wash, why they dress, etc., they will answer with appropriate answers, for these are common necessities for all human beings.
We can follow this line of questioning with a hundred questions and receive the same or similar answers from anyone in any language from any place in the world.
May Allah Ta’aala make us all from those whose deeds are done in accordance with the Sunnah, deeds that are done sincerely for the sake of Allah?
May Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) help us to do that which He loves and which pleases Him?
May Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’aala (GOD) make our efforts sincere and keep us all on the straight path...........
