    *The Purpose of Life*

    _Think about it! Is our purpose in this world simply to eat,  sleep, dress, work, acquire some material things and enjoy ourselves? Is this  our purpose? Why are we born? What is the object of our existence? What is the  wisdom behind the amazing creation of man and this tremendous universe? Think  about those questions !!_

    Allah mentions to us in the Holy Quran

    *أَوَلَمْ يَتَفَكَّرُوا فِي أَنفُسِهِم مَّا خَلَقَ اللَّهُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا إِلَّا بِالْحَقِّ وَأَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى وَإِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنَ النَّاسِ بِلِقَاءِ رَبِّهِمْ لَكَافِرُونَ*

    *Do they not think deeply (in their ownselves) about themselves (how Allah created them from nothing, and similarly He will resurrect them)? Allah has created not the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, except with truth and for an appointed term. And indeed many of mankind deny the Meeting with their Lord. [See Tafsir At-Tabari, Part 21, Page 24].*(Qur’an 30 : 8)

    *إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لَآيَاتٍ لِّأُولِي الْأَلْبَاب ○ الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَٰذَا بَاطِلًا سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ ○*

    *Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding.*

    *Those who remember Allah (always, and in prayers) standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and think deeply about the creation of the heavens and the earth, (saying): “Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire.*(Qur’an, 2 : 190 -191)

    In these verses, Allah draws our attention to the creation of  the heavens and earth, the alternation of the night and the day, the creation  of the universe. He calls our attention to their creation and their precision,  and mentions those who contemplate the wonders of creation and realize that  this was not created for any foolish purpose, [that Allah is exalted above doing  such a thing] and they seek refuge with Allah from the punishment of Hell. Truly,  when you see the design of all that Allah created, you realize it is very  powerful and very precise, Something very powerful and very precise; something  beyond your own calculation and imagination, cannot be foolish.

    _*May Allah ﷻ Bless us and guide us in all our affairs. Aameen*_
