Letter Title: “What is the Purpose of Life?”

What is the purpose of life? This is an age old question, man has always asked, especially in times of great peril like we are experiencing these days with Covid-19. We tend not to think about religion or our life when we are healthy or are experiencing economic prosperity. We go about our life reaping the benefits of materialism and forget about our religious responsibilities. But as soon as we are ill or face hardship, we question God or religion in general.

According to my religion Islam, man was created to worship God. God Almighty says in the Holy Quran, “And I have created Jinn and men so that they should worship me” [51:57]

As an Ahmadi Muslim, we are taught that in order to achieve this, we must first recognize the existence of God. We must believe that God is alone without any partner. He is the one who has given us life and is the one who will end it as well. The founder of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Messiah Ahmad says in his book, ‘The Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam’ that man “is a creature and the One Who created him and invested him with better and higher faculties than those of all other animals, has also appointed a purpose for his life.” And that purpose “without a doubt is the worship and the understanding of God and complete devotion to Him.”

We must be steadfast in our worship and be benevolent to those in need. His Holiness, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the worldwide spiritual leader of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and the Caliph says in his book, ‘World Crisis and the Pathway to Peace’, “true peace of the world lies only in turning towards God. May God enable the world to understand this point; only then will they be able to discharge the rights of others.”
