What is the purpose of life?

00:00:08 --> 00:01:05

Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. So what is the purpose of life? This is a question that mankind has tried to answer since the beginning of time. We've had scholars, religious figures, philosophers, you name it all giving their perspective of why we're here. With Do you know that Islam also has a very clear and explicit answer to this question. One verse, one word, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala tells us in SUTA that yet well now hello to Jin Noel ins ill earlier boo do, I have not created gins or mankind except for the sole purpose of worship? Now I want you to think about that. Because at first glance when you think you hear li Abu doon to worship, it sounds like you've got to

00:01:05 --> 00:02:00

be super religious, you've got to be devoted in order to fulfill this purpose. But the key is to understand what Yabu doon is referring to, when we say worship, remember that the word Yabu don't comes from our abdomen, abdomen literally means a slave of Allah. Er, Boo Dune is us following all the instructions and the comments from Allah subhanho wa taala. With one intention, we want Allah to be pleased with us. Now apply that definition to life. Everything that you and I do in life has to revolve around pleasing Allah. That's the purpose. That's the goal. So whether you're praying or not, whether you're fasting or not, whether you're involved in any ritual of Islam, the point is,

00:02:01 --> 00:02:49

every single day, from how you eat, how you sleep, who you interact with, how you earn your money, how you earn your living. All of these things that you and I we do on a daily basis, has to connect back to the ultimate worship of Allah subhanho wa taala. You are constantly in the state of submitting yourself to his commands, in order that we can gain his acceptance and his pleasure. That's the purpose. That's why we're here. So the next time when you think about Lea Abu doon don't just think about rituals, think about what is it that I'm doing when I'm not involved in rituals. That's the key when you find the purpose in everything else in your life. And you're conscious that

00:02:49 --> 00:03:04

at the end of the day, I'm doing this for Allah, you will always have purpose you will always find it and you will always experience it in a way that's meaningful. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless you
