Everyone of us should be thankful to God for giving us chance to live in this beautiful world. Actually, why God created us? What is the purpose of our creation? Do you ever think about this question? Our purpose comes in the form of our goals, our dreams or our ambitions but we just do not know how to achieve them.. It is extremely important to discover the purpose of our life.

Likewise I am also the one who have great purpose in my life in order to enjoy and live in this temporary world with Allah’s Blessing. Generally, there are two main purposes that Allah had created human which are to be the servant of Allah who glorify HIM everytime and to be the khalifah to govern the world in appropriate way. Allah had stated in the Holy Quran in Surah Ad-Dzariyyat, versus 56 ( I have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me) and Al-Baqarah, versus 30 (Behold, your Lord said to the angles: “I will create a vicegerent on earth”.They said, “will You place therein one who will make mischief therein and shed blood?-whilst we do celebrate Your praises and glorify Your Holy (name)?”. He said: “I know what you know not”.)..It is such a big honour for Muslim to receive the responsibility. Definitely, Allah know what we do not know.

That is why I am putting my first purpose of life to be a good servant of Allah by obeying all HIS rules and avoiding the all His prohibition as well as doing other good deeds such as to be good to my parents, to organize a charity fund to orphanage and gain valuable knowledge through studying for the sake of Islam. Every second of time, I am trying to achieve the perfection of faith or in Arabic term, we call it “halawatul iman” as I know that the state of iman for human being could increase or decrease. I always forget for being thankful to God and that is why I love people around me who always remind me about Allah. I really love them especially my parents for giving me knowledges and train me to be a good person. I hope that I could do all my good deeds with ihsan in order to achieve rewards from Allah in the hereafter. Ihsan means we do things such as Allah is seeing us and if we can not see Allah, Allah is always watching us. There is no ones action that are excluded from Allah’s knowing. Subhanallah. Praise to Allah. The perfection of ihsan will lead us to be sincere in our deeds as we will do the best.

My second purpose of life is I want to contribute something for my religion. I have always heard about the history of Muslim who brings Islam to be ignited such as Sultan Muhammad Al-Fateh, Salahuddin Al-Ayubi and Saidina Abu bakar As-Siddiq. All of them had done a lot for the sake of Islam. I’m also wondering it is such a beautiful life if I can feel the embracement of Islam during that era and be a part of them. But, I know that I’m not strong enough to be like them as i’m lack of tarbiyyah. As time goes, i just can try to make myself better. I’m learning from mistakes and always hoped that today is better than yesterday and tomorrow is better than today. Amen.

However, nowadays world seems to be changing a lot as the development of the technology and most of the people now are in the state of dangerous. Everyday, we see so many news about immoral behaviour of youngsters, the Muslim is acting like non-Muslim and they are proud to do the prohibited things. I feel very disappointed and sad but i just can pray for them and do what I just can do. I am trying to learn beneficial knowledge as many as I can so that in the future I could be one of the good person that can benefits others. I will spread my knowledge and advise people to the right way insyaAllah. And for myself especially, please remember and always ponder on the purpose of this life is to have happiness in the hereafter. There is one of the hadith said that if we want the world, we must have knowledge. If we want the akhirah, we must have knowledge. And if we want both of them, we must have knowledge. This hadith shows us regarding the importance of knowledge. I always believe that people will develop themselves when their level of knowledge is increasing.

As the conclusion, I really hoped that i can achieve my purpose of life in order to make myself satisfy in whatever I do so that my journey of life will be meaningful. Always remind ourself that Allah did not created us without purpose. There are reasons behind our creation that leads to our existence in this world today. Please appreciate people around us as they are the gift from Allah and always do good deeds to them. One more important thing is about death. One day, all of us will definitely be called by Allah as we belong to HIM. Be prepared to face the death and there is another permanent life in the hereafter. People who always remember death are the intelligent ones. All of the advises are for the reminder especially for myself who tend to be forgetful. Let us come together to achieve Mardhatillah insyaAllah. Thank you for those who had supported me.=)
