It is pretty much obvious that Allah sent every living creature to this world for some purpose. No uncertainty that we have to return to Him and he may ask us next whether we accomplished the purpose or not.
Well, the only purpose is “To know and worship Allah”
What Does ‘’Worship’’ Means?
Worship is explained as everything in Islam that an individual does for the love and pleasure of Allah. This at all depends upon the righteous or non-righteous actions of an individual which includes the following power points:
- Religious Beliefs
- Social activities
- Contribution to the welfare of the society and fellow human beings.
What Are The True Acts of Worship?
Every action that is performed under the influence of the Prophet’s Sunnah is known as Worship. It involves giving charity, visiting the ill, helping others, offering prayers, dressing up yourself in the light of Islamic teachings.
Every single act that is carried out for the sake and submission to Allah falls in the definition of the real purpose of human’s life.
The Purpose of Life Explained in Quran
Islam is a complete religion having proficient knowledge about every matter of life and to our amazement, it has answers for this too. Quran clearly states that the Muslim’s whole life purpose is nothing but to obey Allah and keep His love above everything.
The act of Worship (Ibadaah) is to submit, surrender, thanks and obey our Creator (Allah) on His terms and conditions. Every child, adult and old here in this world have to seek Allah’s will in all stages of life. The superiority given to human beings is to evolve both physically and spiritually.
Allah says, “Whoever expects to meet his Lord, let him work righteousness, and in the worship of his Lord, admit no one as partner.” (The Cave, 18:110)
What is the Message of Islam Regarding Life?
The message to define the real purpose of life is one of Allah’s revelation on all Prophets from Adam to Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). It has been the constant message for every decade that keeps us reminding the Allah’s will.
“Indeed, We have sent a messenger to every nation (saying), ‘Worship God and avoid false gods…” (Qur’an, 16:36)
Witnessing Nature to discover the real Purpose of Islam
Let the sky speaks or the stars on sky may be? Looking at the beauty of nature, the answer becomes easy of ‘’Why Allah should be Worshipped’’. The creation of this world and the world after it (Jannah) gives us reason to believe in the greatness of Almighty Allah.
How does a day turn into a night or a night into a morning? These are surely the signs to thank Allah for the best He has endowed ion us.
Similarly, when we read a novel, we know that its author exists. Reading the holiest book (Quran) makes us realize to know the real purpose of life for our existence as it has been mentioned repeatedly.
“And I did not create the Jinn and mankind except to worship Me” (Quran, 51:56-58)
