there is one ayah in the Quran,
"Our Lord! You have not created (all) this without purpose, glory to You! (Exalted are You as partners). Give us salvation from the torment of the Fire." (3:191)
if you notice, this is the ayah that i always quoted everytime i posted something about alam..
yes, that is also the doa that you are recommended to say when you see something magnificent about the alam (alam will always be magnificient!!).
this ayah says, every creation (all) is created with the purpose. Stars are created as decoration to the sky. In Science we know that every living thing is significant in maintaining the ecosystem and if that specific living thing extincts, it may distrupt the whole ecosystem! it shows to us, the importance of all the creation and Allah creates them with specific purposes.
but, have we ever wondered, why Allah creates us? Why Allah creates human being to live in this world?
Have you ever wonder what is actually the mission of our life? Did Allah create us, the human being just to eat, sleep, play, study, work, marry, have children and finally die?
Did Allah create us just to live this life without any purpose?
of course not.. Allah has said in the ayah above that EVERY CREATION is created with purpose. So, why Allah creates us?
the answer is,
in sura Ad-Dzariyat 51: 56,
Allah SWT says:
"And I (Allah) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone)"
or in Bahasa Melayu nya,
"Aku tidak menciptakan jin dan manusia melainkan agar mereka beribadah kepada Ku"
so, that is the main purpose why we are created..
in every single deed that we do in this dunia is everything about worship Him, thus, have we fulfilled the purpose of why we are created?
Pray, Fasting, Zakat, Hajj, yes, that is the ibadah khusus that we have (compulsory) to do throughout our lifetime as Muslim. but, is that all about worshipping Allah? does it mean, when you out of the praying mat, or out of the mosque, you are someone else? that you are not beribadah to Him..
In living our life, how we study, how we study, how we sleep, how we communicate with others must reflect that we are worshipping Him, that we are remembering Him, all the way through in a day. that is also the ibadah with the condition that you have the intention to do it because of Him alone and following the syariah..
For example, if you study, you start with "Bismillahirrahman nir raheem" and you do it following the syariah such as, studying the knowledge that is 'bermanfaat'. if you start with reciting the Basmallah but you learn to steal, this is not valid.
so, let's relax and reflect, what have we done all this years that show that we are His Slaves who worship Him alone?
Have we spent most of our time, remembering Him, thanking Him, asking Him for forgiveness, worshipping Him, and doing everything for His sake only?
tepuk dada, tanya emaan..
tazkirah for myself terutamanya...
Ya Allah, sesungguhnya aku berlindung kepada-Mu dari kegundahan hati dan kesedihan,
Dan aku berlindung kepada-Mu dari sifat lemah dan malas,
Dan aku berlindung kepada-Mu dari sifat penakut dan bakhil,
Dan aku berlindung kepada-Mu dari lilitan hutang dan tekanan orang.
