The purpose of life




بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ


In Surah Adz Dzariyat, chapter 5, verse 56, Allah reminds men, He reminds us:


"وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ"


[And I created the jins and men, only for them to worship Me -
Dan tidaklah Aku ciptakan seluruh jin dan seluruh manusia melainkan untuk beribadah kepadaKu]

And so this verse holds the answer to a lot of questions; "Why are we created? Why are we here? What are we supposed to do here? How should we live this life?"

From this simple verse, it is clarified, that one of the main reasons why Allah has created us is so that we, shall worship Him and obey. So that we do 'ibadah' to Him.

Now the main questions lies within us.
Since one of the main reasons for us to be created is so that we worship Him......

are we saying the words that reflect our 'ibadah' to Him?
are we doing things in our everyday life, that reflect our 'ibadah' to Him?
are we thinking the thoughts that reflect our 'ibadah' to Him?
are we wearing the attire, the clothes that reflect our ibadah' to Him?
are we seeing, watching and looking at things that reflect our 'ibadah' to Him?
are we working the job that reflect our 'ibadah' to Him?
are we doing our job the way that reflect our 'ibadah to Him?
are we eating the food that reflect our 'ibadah' to Him?
are we eating the way that reflect our 'ibadah' to Him?
are we behaving with others the way that reflect our 'ibadah' to Him?
are we behaving the way that reflect our 'ibadah' to Him?
are we living the life that reflect our 'ibadah' to Him?

Are we living the life that reflect our 'ibadah' to Him?
Are we...?

Let's think and reflect.
If we are on the right path, Alhamdulillah. Istiqamah and be better.
If we have strayed away, Astaghfirlah. Taubah, find our way back and return to Him.

Together, let's rectify our life.

Blessed be.
