Understanding the purpose of life as a believer

  1. 1. Nasreen Abdur Raheem
  2. 2.  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…
  3. 3.  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!
  4. 4. 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!
  5. 5.  To worship Allah(swt) ) “And I did not create the Jinn and Mankind except to worship Me.” (Surah Adh Dhariyath, v: 56)
  6. 6.  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.
  7. 7.  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)
  8. 8.  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)
  9. 9.  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
  10. 10. 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??
  11. 11. 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!
