KNOWING YOUR PURPOSE IN LIFE IS KEY TO HAPPINESS

WHY ARE WE HERE?

Allah clearly says in the Quran about the purpose of the creation of mankind:

And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me. (Quran 51:56)

We have been created for no other purpose than to worship and obey the Creator who has given us life, eyes to see, ears to hear, hearts to feel, lungs to breath.

Who is providing us with light to see, water to survive, oxygen to breath and many veins and cells that keeps us alive.

Most importantly, who gave us the faith and intellect to realize all these great blessings.

WHY HE ALONE DESERVES OUR WORSHIP

Allah says in the Quran:

Say it is He Who has created you, and endowed you with hearing (ears), seeing (eyes), and hearts. Little thanks you give. (67:23)

Has He, the Creator of all things, until now deprived you of any of His blessing for your disobedience to Him? Has He decided that in one day I will provide this slave of mine with fresh air for 23 hours or give him his sight only 12 hours a day?

Alhamdulillah, we are not deprived of any of these blessings of Allah for all the disobedience and ingratitude we show to the One who gave us all that we need, yet He is full of mercy to His slaves.

When He has not given up providing you with what you need, why do you give up invoking Him, praising Him and worshiping Him? Or is there any other way that you survive on the earth without depending on the provision and help of the Al-Mighty?

ARE WE REALLY FULFILLING OUR PURPOSE?

Although for many of us, we realize that we have to pray, do good deeds, worship Allah and abstain from evil, we continue to go beyond the bounds, disobey and violate the commands of Allah while knowing the consequences, yet claim that our purpose is to worship Allah.

How can it be when we spend our time attending our temporary desires, running after the wealth we gain, house we buy, food we eat, fashion we like, people we favor and fame we desire?

When it is time for prayer, we merely attend it with full heart with so many distractions that is occupying our hearts and mind. When prayer is done, we don’t even remember what chapter we read.

A NOBLE DUTY

Purpose of our creation was not only to merely offer the prayer and fast in Ramadan and give Zakat and go for Hajj. Rather, these are our duties that we must do. Our purpose as a whole is to be conscious or our servitude, gratitude and sincere worship to the Creator, Al-Mighty God.

When we fulfill such noble duty, our hearts find tranquility and there will be no such thing as problem in our lives, no worries that occupy our minds. We will feel at ease for we have established a sincere relationship with our Creator, Who created everything that we are in need of, Who controls everything that we are so worried about, Who provides for our needs for which we strive day and night seeking our worldly provision when it is Him who is the Owner of all these.

NOW…

Alhamdulillah, God has favored you and me and made us realize His blessings and gave us the determination to fulfill our purpose before it’s too late. Of the greatest blessings that Allah grants His slaves are opportunity and ability.

Al-Mighty God has given us the ability to know and understand only a few of His blessings and the purpose of our existence. He has also enabled us with many opportunities day in day out in which we can submit these blessings for servitude, obedience and worship only and sincerely to Him.

ABILITY:

To read, understand and act upon His words the Quran

Believe what we preach and what we act

At least save our own souls from the fire of Hell by abstaining from evil

Spreading the message of truth to many parts of the world

OPPORTUNITY:

Free time (how can we not have free time to learn about the words of our Creator?)

Good health (more we strive, more rewards we get.)

Life (our Creator still blesses us with these minutes and seconds which may come to an end anytime.)

Choosing eternal bliss or eternal punishment.

BEAR IN MIND:

We are merely the creation of God and thus we are not able to do anything without depending on His help. Even to worship the Creator Al-Mighty, we are in need of His guidance, His help and His power.

Alhamdulillah, if you were to ask of someone in a high position for your needs day in day out, they will sooner or later become tired of attending your needs.

However, remember that God loves you the more you ask Him, the more you rely on Him and the more you consult Him in all your affairs. The more He will turn to you for you are turning to Him.

At the same time you also have to be thankful, obedient and patient slave for He says:

And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided. (2:186)

O Allah make us among those who call on you constantly and who respond (obey) to your call faithfully, Ameen.

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
