Born become baby, enter primary school. enter secondary school, enter university, get a good job, become rich, happy and lastly died…Is that all? How do you want to achieve an eternal happiness ? The only way of knowing our purpose is by knowing our creator. Human were created in this world for a test. It is either we pass or fail the test. Every creation there must be a creator. Take an analogy where Amar build a chair. Amar is a creator while the chair is a creation. Amar build the chair for a purpose which is for people to sit. So human were created in this world for a purpose which is to worship the AlMighty God the one and only God which is Allah. I have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me. No Sustenance do I require of them, nor do I require that they should feed Me. For Allah is He Who gives (all) Sustenance,- Lord of Power,- Steadfast (for ever). (51-56-58) We must come to know our Creator, Sustainer and Ultimate Judge. We must learn to believe in Him, thank Him, praise Him, honor Him and worship Him, alone without any partners from His Creation. We must learn about His Messengers and Prophets, peace be upon them, and the message with which they were all sent. We must learn the Word of God as was directly revealed, preserved and memorized and passed down by memory throughout all the generations of Muslims to the present day. Those who are in search of truth, having open minds and hearts will recognize this as a message in truth and sincerity. Open your heart and your mind now and ask the Almighty God of the Universe [Allah] to guide you now to His True Way. And then be ready to accept your true purpose in life. If Allah is the Most Merciful why did Allah created Hell ? We need to realise that Allah is the Most Merciful and Most Justice. Take an analogy. First situation, if you are a teacher you want to mark your student’s final exam paper., you gave everyone pass the exam even though some of them actually failed for the exam. Would it be fair and justice to give a pass for those students who did not studied for the exam and end up failed compared with those students who spend their time for hours studied hard and smart? The answer is NO.. Second situation, if you are a boss you have two workers which are A and B. A performance was really good while B performance was bad. Would it be fair and justice if you give a reward ( increase in salary ) to B also? The answer is NO.. Therefore, Allah created Heaven is to reward those people ( Believers ) who followed His command sincerely while Hell is to punish those ( Unbelievers ) who did not followed His command. Yusuf Ali Not without purpose did We create heaven and earth and all between! that were the thought of Unbelievers! but woe to the Unbelievers because of the Fire (of Hell)! ( 38:27 ) Allah Most Merciful and Most Justice.Sahih International And O my people, ask forgiveness of your Lord and then repent to Him. He will send [rain from] the sky upon you in showers and increase you in strength [added] to your strength. And do not turn away, [being] criminals.” ( 11:52 ) But bear in mind that it does not mean that all non-muslim are unbelievers, as some of the non-muslim do not know about Islam clearly or they may get the message of Islam through the wrong source or channel. Thus Allah do not punish someone who have no true knowledge about Islam. Yusuf Ali Who receiveth guidance, receiveth it for his own benefit: who goeth astray doth so to his own loss: No bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another: nor would We visit with Our Wrath until We had sent an apostle (to give warning). (17:15)
