What is the purpose of our life in this world? Allah has created us so that we become the obedient slaves of Allah and wins His pleasure. What Allah really wants from us? Does Allah gain anything in creating humankinds like us? What do Allah gains in creating mankind? Allah gains nothing from us as we own nothing and Allah owns everything in this world and the hereafter. What we can give to Allah when Allah has everything and Allah does not need anything. Allah is rich and all Allah’s creation is poor. Why Allah wants us to obey all the orders of Allah? What benefit to us if we obey all the orders of Allah and what loses that will incurred upon us if we disobey the orders of Allah. Do Allah gains anything if we obey Him and Do Allah lose anything if we do not obey Allah? Allah gains nothing if we obey the orders of Allah and Allah loses nothing if we disobey all the orders of Allah. Why Allah give humankinds many orders? Mankinds are created by Allah and only Allah knows how to make men to become successful. Men do not know how to become successful as men are creations and not the Creator. With the permission of Allah, men were able to invent car and only those who has invented the cars know on how to make the car runs smoothly and bring worthy to the owner of the car. The car must be driven according to the manuals made by the inventor of the car and not according to the wishes of the owner of the car. In case the owner of the car does not want to drive the car according to the manuals given by the inventor of the car, because the owner thinks the car belongs to him or her, definitely the car will not be able to be driven and finally the car will become malfunction and possibly bring harm to the owner of the car. In order to become successful men must lead their lifes by following all the orders of Allah but when men think that they are here in this world without being created by Allah and start to lead lifes following their own desires, men will become failures in this world and the world hereafter.
Many men think that they are not created by Allah and Allah has nothing to do with their existence. Many men think that they are here in this world through the natural process of sexual intercourse between man and women. Many men believe that they exist because of the natural process of sexual intercourse between men and women and Allah has nothing to do with His creations. Because many men do not believe that they are created by Allah, many men do not want to obey the orders of Allah but to obey whatever they think and believe are right and to follow whatever their ancestors are doing. Many only follow whatever pleases them and their love ones without taking into account the consequences to others. Since men are creations, men do not know what is right and wrong and living following men’s own discretion of right and wrong is definitely will lead to men own destruction. Nothing in this world exist without someone by the permission of Allah, has made it. The small needles would not exist in this world without someone by the permission of Allah has made it. The earth, sky, sea and men must have a creator and who is the creator of the earth, moon, sun, sky and men? The creator of the earth and the sky and everything in it and between it and the creator of the lifes after death and whatever in it is Allah and none is able to create anything except with the permission of Allah. Allah has created Adam without a parent and Allah has created Prophet Jesus without a Father. Allah does not need us to have parents in order to create us. Allah can create us without having a mother and a father. It is the normal procedures of Allah, that in order to have children; men and women must get married and have sexual relationship between them. This is the normal procedure that everyone must follow in order Allah to gives us children. However it does not means that Allah cannot gives us children in an unusual way. Allah gives a son name Prophet Isa or Jesus to Maryam without her getting married or having any sexual intercourse with any men. Allah gives sons to Prophet Ibrahim and Zakaria during their old age. Both the usual and unusual ways, the one that gives us children is Allah. Allah can give children by the usual or the unusual ways. No one can create us except Allah and because Prophet Jesus was born in the unusual way, it does not means Jesus is the son of Allah and Allah is the father of Jesus. Jesus was only a normal human being, who was chosen by Allah to be born in unusual ways, in order for Allah to show to the entire mankind that men were not created by their parents by the process of sexual intercourse but by Allah. Allah does not subscribe to means in order to create men. Allah created the means and Allah can do without means. We are all the “children” of Allah and Allah is like the “Father “to all mankind. The one who denied Allah or refused to recite the Great Kalimah is like the children who had run away from their “Father” who is Allah and the ones who had recited the Great Kalimah yet disobeyed the orders of Allah is like the disobedient children of a “Father “who is Allah. Allah had created Jesus or Isa without a Father and he is not the son of Allah. Allah has no children. Jesus is a normal human being chosen to be the Prophet of Allah. Jesus and Muhammad are the Prophets of Allah and Muhammad is not the founder of Islam and Jesus was not the founder of Christianity. Both are Prophets of Allah with the same message that there is no God but Allah and follow us you will reach Allah. Both are Prophets sent by Allah at different times of human history and Muhammad is the last Prophet sent by Allah to mankind in order to complete the revelations that Allah want to deliver to the entire mankind. Whoever born during the period of Muhammad as the Prophet, must follow the Quran and must accept Muhammad as the last Prophet of Allah. We must love all the Prophets of Allah as all the Prophets of Allah are the lovers of Allah. The entire Prophet may Allah bless them have attained the purpose of their lifes which is to wins the pleasure of Allah.
Our purpose of life is also to win the pleasure of Allah. What Allah wants from us is to love Allah and to do every action only with the intention of pleasing Allah until Allah is pleased. Allah does not love and values materials wealth and worldly status but Allah loves good actions. Good actions or good amals are actions done in the way of our Prophet Muhammad saw with the intention only to please Allah until Allah is pleased with us. The actions loved most by Allah is to call and to remind peoples about Allah and to invite and to teach the orders of Allah. Whatever actions that we do are also creations of Allah as we are also the creations of Allah and therefore creations other than Allah cannot do anything. Our actions cannot solve our problems and our actions cannot give us guidance or gives us paradise. Our actions can only obtain us the pleasure of Allah only when the actions are done with the intention to please Allah. When the actions are not done with the intention to please Allah, we will not get even the pleasure of Allah but the anger of Allah. It is not possible for any creations to do anything except with the permission of Allah. None can do except Allah. No one can enter paradise with their amals or good actions as amals or good actions of ours are also creations that cannot do or gives us anything except with the permission of Allah. The only thing our good actions can gives us are to make our Creator, Allah, please and we can only gain the pleasure of Allah with our actions only if the actions are done with the intention to please Allah. We should not do any actions with the intention of getting rewards as our actions cannot give us rewards. We should not do any actions with the intention of rectifying ourselves as our actions cannot rectify us and we cannot do any actions with the intention of entering paradise as our actions cannot give us paradise. Our actions can only obtain us the pleasure of Allah and nothing else. So we must do any actions with the intention to please Allah, until Allah is pleased with us. When we do any actions the ways our Prophet Muhammad saw did and with the intention to please Allah, the actions are known as good actions. When we do actions the way Prophet Muhammad saw did with the intention to please Allah and until Allah is pleased. When Allah is pleased with us, we will become the lover of Allah. When we have gains the love of Allah or we have become the lover of Allah, we will get everything. Allah is the one that can do everything and none can do except Allah. Creations of Allah including our actions cannot do anything ,cannot gives us benefit or harm, cannot gives us or take away anything from us and cannot change or rectify anything except with the permission of Allah, but our good actions can obtain us the pleasure of Allah. Our materials wealth cannot give us anything including the pleasure of Allah. Our material wealth has no values because it cannot give us anything including the pleasure of Allah. Our good actions cannot give us anything except the pleasure of Allah. When we gain the pleasure of Allah or Allah is pleased with us, we will get everything. When Allah loves us, Allah will gives to us whatever we want. Allah will give us iman, Allah will rectify us, Allah will gives us power and wealth and Allah will change our condition.
When we do any actions to gains political power and not to please Allah, Allah will not be please with us and Allah will not give us power but humiliation. When we do any actions to rectify ourselves and not to please Allah, Allah will not be please with us and Allah will not rectify us but to give us more pride and bad behaviours. Only those who do actions only with the intention to please Allah until Allah is pleased and when they gains the love of Allah, Allah will make them rectified and give them power and wealth. Only those who do actions with sincerity will be successful. Only those who do actions with sincerity CLICK will gains the pleasure of Allah and become successful in this world and hereafter.
