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? Majority of humans look for a purpose in something materialistic – discoveries, inventions, making money, etc. … But surely there has to be a much greater purpose for us in this life…
An Arab poet expressed his uncertainty about the purpose of life in his poem “Puzzles”. “I came not knowing from where, but I came. And I saw a pathway in front of me, so I walked. And I will remain walking, whether I want this or not. How did I come? How did I see my pathway? I do not know!
Am I new or am I old, in thisexistence?Am I free and unrestrained?Or do I walk in chains? Do Ilead myself in my life? Oram I being led? I wish Iknew but… I do not know!
To worship Allah(swt) ) “And I did not create the Jinn and Mankind except to worship Me.” (Surah Adh Dhariyath, v: 56)
In order to worship Allah, we need to know Him and recognize Him. Recognize Him the way He(swt) described Himself in the Glorious Qur’an and how the Prophet Muhammad (saw) taught us. If we try to find Allah in other sources, then we will surely go astray.
Duniya is a test for the Aakhirah. “He who created death and life to test you(as to) which of you is best in deeed, and He is the exalted in Might, the Forgiving.” (Surah Al Mulk, v: 2)
Slight doubt makes other beliefs meaningless. If there was no life after death, it would mean injustice to those who suffered in this world. ) “Or should we treat those who believe and do righteous deeds like corruptors in the land? Or should we treat those who fear Allah like the wicked?” (Surah Saad,v:28)
The path of our future… Blowing of Resurrection The Grave Life of World Horn Scrolls Al Shafa’ah Accoun The Al-Haud Test of ofHashr tability Meezan Believers Deeds Disbeliever Hypocrite Al Al Qantarah Believer Siraat Jannah An Naar
SubhanAllah!Remember: This life is an exam and“The Qur’an” has all the answers… so, wouldn’t it be a shame to fail an open book exam??
So, if a fool lives to eat and a wise man eats to live then, a believer lives to worship Allah (swt), seeking only His pleasure by which he wishes to enter Jannah! JazakAllahu Khairan!
