What is the Purpose of our life? , Emdad Khan
Where did we come from? Why we are here? Where are we going? Are we here based on random natural coincidences or is there a higher intelligent being, a creator? Admitting the existence of a creator helps us understanding our meaningful purpose in life.
God, the All Wise, did not create us to only fulfil our basic needs and desires. We have a higher purpose – to worship God alone and we live based on the guidance of the Creator. The guidance sent to us through messengers of God. This will enable us to have successful and blessed life as well as do beneficial acts to society, being good to our neighbours, support our families, and so on.
God in this life test us in different ways. We cannot control what happens to us, but we can control how we react. Patience during challenging conditions, and gratitude for blessings, are ways of getting closer to God and attaining eternal blessed abode, the Paradise.
Wen we leave this life, our aim, God is pleased with us and we are pleased with God, But ah! thou soul at peace (in complete rest and satisfaction)! (27) Return unto thy Lord, content in His good pleasure! (28) Enter thou among My bondmen! (29) Enter thou My Garden! (89.30)
يَـٰٓأَيَّتُہَا ٱلنَّفۡسُ ٱلۡمُطۡمَٮِٕنَّةُ (٢٧) ٱرۡجِعِىٓ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكِ رَاضِيَةً۬ مَّرۡضِيَّةً۬ (٢٨) فَٱدۡخُلِى فِى عِبَـٰدِى (٢٩) وَٱدۡخُلِى جَنَّتِى (٣٠) سُوۡرَةُ الفَجر
