Why were We Created?

All praise is for Allah. We praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness.

We seek refuge in Allah from all the evil of ourselves and the wickedness of our deeds.

Whomsoever Allah guides, cannot be led astray and whomsoever Allah misguides, none an guide him.

I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone without any partner and I bear witness that Muhamed is His slave and Messenger (Peace be upon him)

As human beings we often wonder why we have been created. Allah (swt) tells us in the Qur'an that we were created to worship him:

"And I have not created the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone)." {Surah adh-dhaariyat: 56}

Therefore the worship of Allah is the humans end objective and is also that which Allah (swt) loves.

Worship comes in many forms; reverence of Allah (swt), turning to Allah in repentance, sincerity of Deen, patience with Allah's judgements, gratitude for His favours upon us, hoping for Allah's Mercy on the Day of Judgement and so forth.

All worship must be done according to the 'way' of our Prophet Mohammed (saws).

We can not use our own brain or emotions to devise how we should worship Allah nor should we blindly follow anyone or anything except the Qur'an and the Sunnah of our Prophet (saws) and that of the Rightly Guided Caliph's.

The aim of our life is Al Jannah (the Paradise) with Allah (swt) so follow the Qur'an and the Sunnah and with the Mercy of Allah we will attain Al Jannah, insha'Allah!
