What's the purpose for why Allah azza wa jal created the human being? Allah azza wa jal? He said the answer to that yet, well now Haluk to Gina will insert it allele, Abu Dune, I did not create mankind and jinn kind, except that they worship Me. That's it.

00:00:19--> 00:00:58

That is the only purpose of the creation of mankind and jinn kind that they worship. Allah has social in everything they do, and in every moment of their life, you worship Allah in the way you eat. You worship Allah him the way you drink. You worship Allah in the way you dress. You worship Allah in the way you talk. You worship Allah in where you stretch your hands, and you worship Allah azza wa jal by obeying His commands and keeping away from his prohibitions, but you see my brothers and sisters in Islam, the first purpose I mentioned to you, and then the second purpose, they are closely related to each other.

00:00:59--> 00:01:04

You cannot worship Allah. If you do not know Allahu Allah cliche in Cadiz.

00:01:05--> 00:01:11

Therefore, the first purpose in life is to know who Allah is. That's the first purpose in life

00:01:12--> 00:01:42

before it is to worship Allah. The first purpose in life is to know Allah assertion, by His names and attributes, is to know that Allah is capable over all things. How are you going to learn this lesson? Look around you. Look above you. Look beneath you. Look left and right of you. Everything Allah created, refers to the fact that Allah is capable over all things. That's the first purpose in life to recognize Allah azza wa jal.

00:01:44--> 00:02:30

Then the second purpose is for you now to worship this Lord, that You have come to know who he is. And your worship to Him. Is you being grateful to Allah azza wa jal. This is you being grateful to him after you've recognized him. I'll give you an example. You know, you all have parents, mothers and fathers. And for those who have passed away we ask Allah azza wa jal to bestow his mercy and forgiveness upon them. While Islam encourages us all, to be dutiful to our parents, we love our parents, we serve our parents, we go out of our way to do things for our parents. We want to see that smile on their face, and we want from them. And no matter what pain you go through, that's

00:02:30--> 00:03:07

right. These are my parents. Right? This is the attitude we have with our parents. And they are created by Allah to Allah azza wa jal belongs the highest of examples, I'll give you that. But let me ask you something. Why are you good to your parents? Why do you feel the need to serve them and to love them? Why? I tell you why, because you recognize they are your parents. But this is my mother. This is my father. She carried me for nine months, he provided he went and worked hard, and every dollar he spent it on my education, on my food on my nourishment on my clothing.

00:03:09--> 00:03:42

I recognize so I am grateful to them for the rest of my life. To Allah belongs the highest of examples. When you recognize who Allah is, when you recognize it, it was Allah azza wa jal who closed you and it is Allah social who fed you. And it is Allah azza wa jal, who nurtures you and give you life and causes your death and decrease all your affairs and matters. And it is Allah azza wa jal who guide you and it is Allah azza wa jal, it is him, that you are here tonight.

00:03:43--> 00:03:51

It is Allah azza wa jal that your limbs are functioning today and you woke up healthy, and you had your well being.

00:03:52--> 00:03:57

But he's Allah azza wa jal to you compared to your parents to you, nothing, nothing.

00:03:59--> 00:04:40

And so this is why once you recognize his your Creator, and your Lord, now, you spend the rest of your life being grateful to him. How? By observing his commands, adhering these commands and keeping away from the prohibitions. This is the purpose of life. Everything around us is so that we recognize Allah has social is one. And then afterwards when we know who he is. We spend the rest of our lives grateful to him. And that is our worship. Our worship is gratitude.
