What is the purpose and meaning of life on earth? All this that we see – the sky, the stars and the seas – why does it exist? Why do humans have an upright form and possess intelligence? Humans use their reason to comprehend, they ask why does life exist? Why have I been created? Whatever humans do they do for a reason. Surely the Almighty created this world for a reason. We see this creation, what is the reason for this creation?

Allah Ta’ala says in the Quran “we have not created the sky and the earth and all in-between for play”. The Quran also asserts: “We have not created the sky and the earth and all that lies in-between them in vain”. Why, then, did the Almighty create the sky and the earth and all that lies in-between? Why did he create humans in this world?
