Every able mind & body worships something. You may worship a statue, animals, a hobby, friends, family, fame, wealth, power, or anything revered with the highest importance. You may worship yourself, another human being, a prophet, or a spirit which you’ve given anthropomorphic qualities, a semi-god dependent on things like human beings. All are unworthy of worship and can do nothing for you. The only thing people don’t worship is God Alone. So for that, The One you set up rivals to or denied will be the One to throw you in hell. Makes sense right? After all, He gave you life and everything else, not those useless objects.
Life is a test, so study for it. A teacher doesn’t give you the same test twice. And God won’t give you the same life twice.
“Praying to” and “praying for” are two different things. People often confuse the two. You can pray for creation but you can’t pray to creation. You only pray to God, but you can’t pray for God. You can ask God to bless your parents but you can’t ask your parents to bless God. You can ask God for help but you can’t help God, because God is not in need of your help, because if he was, He wouldn’t be God. Make sense?
The purpose of life is simple: what message did the pious, the prophets, and the messengers call to since the inception of time?
Adem (Adam), Idris (Enoch), Nuh (Noah), Hud (Eber), Saleh (Salih), Ibrahim (Abraham), Lut (Lot), Isma’il (Ishmael), Is’haq (Isaac), Yaqub (Jacob), Yusuf (Joseph), Ayyub (Job), Shu’ayb (Jethro), Musa (Moses), Harun (Aaron), Dawud (David), Sulayman (Solomon), Ilyas (Elijah), Al-Yasa (Elisha), Yunus (Jonah), Dhul-Kifl (Ezekiel), Zakariyya (Zechariah), Yahya (John the Baptist), Isa (Jesus), Muhammad (Mohammad)
Now say it with your heart and tongue and do not die upon anything except that.
Arabic: Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’oon
Translation: To Allah We Belong and To Him We Will Return
This life is but a short journey, and at the end of this journey is a certain end that every soul will face. So prepare for death as much as we you prepare for life. We go to our graves with nothing except our deeds and our creed.
