What is Your Goal in this Life?

goal in life

If every sport has its goal and every game has its end. As if it has its objective and rules. How about life which is not a game? Isn’t there a goal to life? Isn’t there a purpose, an objective that we have to reach? We think so! The Qur’an tell us that we exist in order to worship God and worshipping God means knowing God.

Worship though is not some narrow small thing. It’s wide its vast, it encompasses everything that the human being does everything that you do, everything that you think, everything that you feel can be done thought, said, felt in a way that is either pleasing or displeasing to God.

The purpose of life is to try and do everything in a way that God loves and God is pleased with.

That is our goal!

God says in the Qur’an :

أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَاكُمْ عَبَثًا وَأَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لَا تُرْجَعُونَ

فَتَعَالَى اللَّهُ الْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيمِ

“Did you think that We create you to play around (without any purpose), and you think that you would not be brought back to Us?

So Exalted be Allah, the True King: Laa ilaaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Lord of the Supreme Throne!”

[al-Mu’minoon 23:115, 116].

So, setup this true goal of your life. Then, you can navigate your life correctly.
