A Purposeful Creation

    Why was this world made? Why was man born into this world? Why, after a certain period of time, does he pass away? What will happen after death? These are the most important questions concerning the origins and fate of mankind, and they should never be far from people’s minds. Finding the correct answers to these questions has always been one of man’s most important quests.

    Pondered over for thousands of years, these questions have been variously answered by different people. However, these answers can be placed in two broad categories: one, which holds the great array of wonders in this world to be purposeless, and the other, which asserts that man was created with a purpose and that he has a definite goal.

    While the first view tends to be subscribed to by poets, philosophers and secular scholars, the second view is firmly upheld by that very special class of beings called prophets, or messengers of God. The most authentic testament to the second view has been provided by the Prophet Muhammad.

    Many arguments can be put forward in support of the answers in both of these categories. It is very obvious, however, that the notion of purposelessness is not in keeping with the structure of life and universe. The idea, on the other hand, of purposeful creation, falls exactly into place, for the simple reason that it contains no inherent contradictions.

    The world into which man is born is fraught with significance. There is nothing which is of a meaningless or random nature. It is quite unthinkable that man, with his meaningful life, born into a meaningful universe, should find no purpose in creation. Where there is meaningfulness, there will, of necessity, be purposefulness. This aspect of the universe is a clear verification of the Prophet’s answer.

      The first recorded Prophet Zaratushtra as well as the last Prophet Guru Nanak were both poets.

      Your philosophy is totally wrong.
      Poetry is simply the most condensed form of philosophy.

    SIR, I WOULD READ YOUR ARTICAL RESPECTFULY BUT THE USE OF THE WORD MAN IN PLACE OF HUMANITY OR A TERM NOT GENDER SPECIFIC. BEING MALE I HAVE SOMEHOW MANAGED TO SEE IF ONLY IN PART HOW PATRIARCAL SOCIETY HAS UTTERLY FAILED TO MAKE THIS WORLD A LOVING PLACE TO BE.

    NOR DO I THINK THAT THE OPPOSITE WOULD WORK. MEN AND WOMEN ARE TWO HALVES SOMEHOW UNTIL THE MAN FINDS THE WOMAN WITHIN HIMSELF ETC.
