6 QURANIC VERSES ABOUT OUR PURPOSE IN LIFE

Alhamdulillah, Praise be to Allah (swt), we as Muslims have a clear purpose in our lives: to earn the pleasure of our Creator.

Our, true goal is not “happiness”. Our true goal is to grow nearer to Allah (swt).

Many psychology articles about happiness give great ideas and techniques to follow, but few actually talk about Allah (swt). I am so thankful to be a Muslim and to have a goal much greater than being “happy”.

I say that the real source of our happiness is having a positive relationship with Allah (swt). We can learn other skills and techniques in order to cope with this challenging world, which support our journey to Allah (swt). Feeling positive feelings helps us to be better Muslims. Positive feelings such as inner peace, joy, gratitude and hope all help us to do more good deeds for the sake of our Creator.

Feeling happy is a great thing, but as Muslims, we must never forget our real purpose in life.

VERSE 1) Did You Then Think That We Created You in Vain And That You Would Not Be Returned To Us?

The Holy Quran 23:115

VERSE 2) And I Created Not The Jinn And Mankind Except That They Should Worship Me (Alone).

The Holy Quran 51:56
The purpose of our life is the worship of our Creator in the many ways there are to worship Him (prayer, helping others, seeking knowledge, etc.).

VERSE 3) Who Has Created Life And Death So That He May Try You Which Of You Are Best in Deeds.

The Holy Quran 67:2

Who will do the best works for the sake of Him?

VERSE 4) And We Have Not Created The Heaven And Earth And What is Between Them in Vain. That is The Opinion Of Those Who Disbelieve. And Woe To Such Disbelievers, Because Of The Fire. Shall We Treat Those Who Believe And Do Good Deeds As Those Who Spread Corruption On The Earth? Or Shall We Treat The Pious As Sinners?

The Holy Quran 38:27-8

The believers will not face the same afterlife as the corrupters. The pious will not be treated the same as sinners.

VERSE 5) And Among The People There is He Who Sells Himself For The Pleasure Of Allah And Allah is Kind To His Worshippers.

The Holy Quran 2:207
The pleasure of Allah should be our goal.

VERSE 6) There Has Come To You From God A Light And A Luminous Book, Through Which God, By His Grace, Guides All Who Seek His Good Pleasure On The Path Of Peace, And Brings Them Out Of The Depths Of Darkness into Light And Guides Them Unto A Straight Path.

The Holy Quran 5:15-16

God has guided people to the purpose of life—worshipping Him and seeking His pleasure—by sending His messengers, books and other means. But we have to want to please God to receive this guidance.

Remember Our Purpose of Life! "We are not here without a purpose. Our existence has a very special and very specific purpose. Something much more than eating, drinking and partying. Something Higher. That is to submit and worship the One Who Created Us and created all the exists around us. To make an active contribution to the society.

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
