Life. Purpose. 

Two big words. 
At one point in one's life, one will inevitably come across these two words in the form of "What's the PURPOSE of LIFE?" 

People do numerous things to look for life's purpose. 
It's the big question that has been boggling billion minds.
Is the answer to this question is nowhere to be found? 
Have you searched high and low for it? 

Do the pictures below reflect our purpose of existence? 


Luxury cars


Do we live just to earn as much so that we can buy things we want? 
I'm not saying it's wrong to do so. Hey, I wanna have those stuffs too if I could. :D
But at the end of the day, do these things bring content to our life? 
Indeed, don't look no further because our Creator created us with reasons. 
He put us on Earth with a book as our living manual. Just like machines we created, they come with user's manual, so do us! And what is that? Al-Quran.

"And when your Lord said to the angels, I am going to place in the Earth a caliph...

they said : What! Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood, while we glorify You with praises and thanks and sanctify You. 

He (Allah) said : I know that which you do not know"
2 :30 (chapter 2 : verse 30)

Boom!!! Does that verse ring any bells? 

"And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone)"
51 : 56 (chapter 51 : verse 56)

Zaaaassssss!!!! Knock3!! Got the answer now? 
Yes. The answer has been there for more than 14 centuries! 

Purpose of life : 
1. Caliph : govern the world according to His guidelines
2. 'Abid : we are His slaves, and we should worship Him alone

This post seems to contradict the previous one at a first glance.
But hey, no it isn't. Islam doesn't say that you can't accumulate wealth and become rich. In fact in the history of Islam, some of the companions of our prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him) were businessmen and millionaires.
Some of them were among the richest people of their time. 
It is perfectly fine to be work hard and accumulate wealth but do make sure we are aware of our purpose and fulfil it. YOLO? haha. We don't live only once.
We've got the eternal HereAfter yeah boys and girls. 

Discover. Learn. Think.
