The Object of man’s existence
The Object of man’s existence on earth is to recognize, worship and serve his creator, Allah Ta’ala. Everything else is secondary.
Worship of Allah Ta’ala is not restricted to the five pillars (Imaan, Salaah, Zakaah, Fasting and Haj). Instead it encompasses every facet of life from eating to answering the call of nature, from business to marriage and from being the head of the household to being the leader of the state.
In order to teach man how to worship Allah Ta’ala in every aspect of life, by performing every action in a manner that is pleasing to him, Allah Ta’ala sent messengers and revealed his books of guidance. The last and final messenger was Sayyidana Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and the last book that was revealed upon him was the Qur’an. Gaining salvation in this world and the next is now only possible by following the Qur’an and the noble Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).
