    What is the purpose of life?
    By
    Mostafa Malaekah

    They say that a fool lives to eat and a wise man eats to live. But then the question remains: for what purpose does the wise man live? Living is not an end by itself. There has to be purpose for man to live for. So what is this purpose?

    Where from? Where to? And why?

    Any ignorance, however great, could be forgiven except for man to be ignorant about the secret of his existence, his aim in life and what will be his outcome after death. Some thinkers express these questions in simple words: where from? Where to? And why? Meaning: where did I come from? Where am I going? And why am I here?
    Those who only believe in the material world and who do not believe in a Creator – the atheists – only believe in sensory data. They say that this universe and everything in it came by itself. All its order is simply due to blind coincidence. They say that man is simply like an animal or a plant and that he will exist for a short period and then end like any other animal or plant.
    An Arab poet, Elya Abu Madhi ( a born-Christian), not long ago expressed his uncertainty about the purpose of life in his Arabic poem Al-Talasim, meaning “ Puzzles”, which I have translated into English, He says in his poem:
    I came not knowing from where, but I came.
    And I saw a pathway in front of me, so I walked.
    And I will remain walking, whether I want this or not.
    How did I come? How did I see my pathway?
    I don’t know!
    Am I new or am I old in this existence?
    Am I free and unrestrained, or do I walk in chins?
    Do I lead myself in my life, or am I being led?
    I wish I know, but…
    I do not know!
    And my path, oh what is my path? Is it long or is short?
    Am I ascending in it, or am I going down and sinking?
    Am I the one who is walking on the road that is moving?
    Or are we both standing, but it is the time that is running?
    I do not know!
    Before I become a full human, do you see?
    If I were nothing, impossible? Or do you see that I was something?
    Is there an answer to this puzzle, or will it remain eternal?
    I do not know… and why do I not know??
    I do not know!

    This feeling of doubt and confusion about the presence of a Creator and whether he sent messengers and prophets to guide mankind must be quite painful because it deprives the A theist and the Agnostic of tranquility, security and peace of mind. The unbelievers do not have credible answers to the purpose of one’s existence. And thus they say that man lives for himself and for the pleasures of his life. So what happens when life turns sour? What happens when one goes through hardships? It is no coincidence then that the largest number of suicides takes place amongst life. Do you know which country has the largest number of suicides? It’s Japan. In the year ending March 2000, there were 33.000 suicides in Japan. That is 91 suicides per day or 1 suicide every 15 minutes! This despite Japan being the second largest economy in the world wherein people do not have to worry about providing a roof over their heads or about food or medical care.

    What if you find a Watch in the Sand?

    To the atheist and the Agnostic the Muslim says: “Suppose you find a watch in the middle of a desert. What would you conclude? Would you think that someone dropped this watch? Or would you suppose that the watch came by itself? Of course no sane person would say that the watch just happened to emerge from the sand. All the intricate working parts could not simply develop from the metals that lay buried in the earth. The watch must have a manufacturer. If a watch tells accurate time we expect the manufacturer must be intelligent. Blind chance cannot produce a working watch.
    But what else tells accurate time? Consider the sunrise and sunset. Their timings are so strictly regulated that scientists can publish in advance the sunrise and sunset times in your daily newspapers. But who regulates the timings of sunrise and sunset? If a watch cannot work without an intelligent maker, how can the sun appear to rise and set with such clockwork regularity? Could this occur by itself?
    Consider also that we benefit from the sun only because it remains at a safe distance from the earth, a distance that averages 93 million miles. If it got much closer, the earth would burn up. And if it goes too far away, the earth would turn into an icy planet making human life here impossible. Who decided in advance that this was the right distance? Could it just happen by chance? Without the sun, plants would not grow. Then animals and human would starve. Did the sun just decide to be for us?
    The rays of the sun would be dangerous for us had it not been for the protective ozone layer in out atmosphere. The atmosphere around the earth keeps the harmful ultraviolet rays from reaching us. Who was it that placed this shield around us?
    We need to experience sunrise. We need the sun’s energy and its light to see out way during the day. But we also need sunset. We need a break from the heat, we need the cool of night and we need the lights to go out so we may sleep. Who regulated this process to provide what we need?
    Moreover, if we had only the warmth of the sun and the protection of the atmosphere we would want something more-beauty. Our clothes provide warmth and protection, yet we design them to also look beautiful. Knowing our need for beauty, the designer of sunrise and sunset also made the view of them to be simply breathtaking.
    The creator who gave us light, energy, protection and beauty deserves our thanks. Yet some people insist that he does not exist. What would they think if they found a watch in the desert? An accurate working watch? A beautifully designed watch? Would they not conclude that there dose exist a watchmaker? An intelligent watchmaker? One who appreciates beauty? Such is God who made us.

    الاصحاح السابع عشر الفقرة الرابعة عشر : (( وهؤلاء يُحَارِبُونَ الخروف ، وَلَكِنَّ الخروف يَهْزِمُهُمْ ، لأَنَّهُ رَبُّ الأَرْبَابِ وَمَلِكُ الْمُلُوكِ ))

    Great, thank you dear brother.
    قال الله تعالى ( مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ فَمِنْهُم مَّن قَضَى نَحْبَهُ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَنتَظِرُ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا تَبْدِيلًا ﴿23﴾ لِيَجْزِيَ اللَّهُ الصَّادِقِينَ بِصِدْقِهِمْ وَيُعَذِّبَ الْمُنَافِقِينَ إِن شَاء أَوْ يَتُوبَ عَلَيْهِمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا ﴿24﴾ الأحزاب

    إن الدخول في الإسلام صفقة بين متبايعين.. .الله سبحانه هو المشتري والمؤمن فيها هو البائع ، فهي بيعة مع الله ، لا يبقى بعدها للمؤمن شيء في نفسه ، ولا في ماله.. لتكون كلمة الله هي العليا ، وليكون الدين كله لله.
