Do You Think That You Live With No Reason?
Why are you in this world? Some of you may say, I am here to relax and take my time because life is so short. You are right life is short, but is that all why you are alive? I know some of you are scientists and if you ask how the body systems function, would answer right away with no delay. Very strange! Somebody knows and can answer any question in this world and doesn't know why he or she is alive. Before I go to bring my proof from the Quran I would like to say to you please look things that are surrounding you. Look the sky, the sun, the stars, and the earth then think about why all these things are here. Who belongs to these things? I never heard any human being claiming and saying I am the creature or founder of the sky, the earth and so on. My question is: do you think that all big creations or miracles are here for no reason? Sure they do and they mean something and all these are the creation of Almighty God for the human being because Allah gave us for the responsibility of this world as a human being.
I can share the answer of that question with my proof so maybe you agree or disagree with me, but it doesn't matter whether you agree or disagree, what matters to me is to submit this message. The answer is explained in the Quran very clearly stating “Blessed is He in Whose Hand is the dominion, and He is Able to do all things. He is the one Who has created death and life, that He may test you which of you is best indeed. And He is glorious in might, the merciful; he is who created the seven heavens in layers. You can see no error the creation of the most merciful any contradiction. then look again( to the sky); do you see any rifts? Then look again and again, your sight will return to degradation way and worn out. We have decorated the nearest sky with lamps(stars) and we made them missiles to throw devils, we prepared for them the punishment of blazing fire."(67:1-5) as you understand those verses we are creations of Allah and purpose we are here is to get ready a test from Allah.
Allah also told us the reason that we are created saying “And I (Allah) created not the jinn and humans except they should worship Me (Alone). I seek not any provision from them (i.e. provision for themselves or for my creatures) nor do I ask that they should feed me (i.e. feed themselves or my creatures). Verily, Allah is the All-Provider, Owner of Power, and the Most Strong."(51:56-58) In these verses, Almighty God told us that we are created to worship him since no one except Allah has right to be worshiped and he also told us that he is the one who feeds us so we don't worry about that since he pledged. Allah will talk everybody with no barrier in the day judgment and the people will be divided into a different group. One group is going to the hell of the fire while the later; believers will go to the paradise.
We all know when a company produces product they attach to instruction paper that can help you how to use that product to make you easy. You can't use the product without reading first that instruction then you follow step by step till you understand completely. The human being is like that product and Almighty God is the creature and you need to know that Allah is greater than all those examples, but I needed to give you a closer picture. Ok, He is who created us and he did not leave us alone but he sent down the Quran. The Quran is explaining the way that Allah needs us to be so in order to study his way we have to read and understand step by step to make him (Almighty) please. Why Almighty is created us is to be good servants since he is only the creature without sharing to anybody. We have to purify our worship to him alone to fulfill our duty as slaves of Allah.
There are a lot of miracles in the book of Allah (Quran) and some of those miracles are the way that Allah creates us, explaining that Allah says "Who will inherit Paradise. They will abide therein. Verily, We created man from an extract of clay; Then We placed him as a drop of sperm in a safe depository; Then We fashioned the sperm into a clot; then We fashioned the clot into a shapeless lump; then We fashioned bones out of this shapeless lump; then We clothed the bones with flesh; then We developed it into another creation. So blessed be Allah, the Best of creators. Then after that, you must surely die. Then on the Day of Resurrection will you be raised up. And we have created above you seven heavens lying one above the other, and we are never neglectful of the creation. "(23:12-18) Allah revealed those verses more than fourteen years and not discovered how human developed and after scientists discovered couldn't believe that subject was there in the Quran. The verses started the creation and how our life developed in the womb and finally, we must die. It showing us that the life is a cycle and every cycle has beginning and ending.
Finally, we have to know that we are alive on purpose not for no reason and almighty needs us to accomplish that mission that prophet Mohamed started peacefully. He just called the people without forcing and people accepted in freedom way.
