Why are we alive? What is the purpose of living in this world?
Where are we going and where the end of this life? There may be a proportion of people who opt to not think about such questions.
Life without purpose will make our lives feel empty. Without knowing the purpose of life, life becomes routine and boring.
Humans are generally scared by something he does not know or unsure e.g. when we are in the dark.
In the dark, we cannot control the situation. We do not know what is around us. We are not unsure if there is anything that might harm us or not.
So in the dark we are always overwhelmed by feelings of anxiety, doubt and worry. That is why most people do not want to enter a dark room.
Likewise, people who do not know the purpose of their life are always filled with doubt because they do not know where the end of this life. They do not know what will happen after death. Though they knew that everyone would be dead, they just deliberately do not want to think about their ignorance.
Meanwhile, there are also people who feel they have a purpose in life but the chosen destination is wrong. The person who is wrong in determining the purpose of life will feel uneasy.
Why uneasy? Because most people who do not know the exact nature of the purpose of life. They tend to relate everything with the world.
Yet nothing is permanent in this world. When the time hits and the goal failed to be achieved or lost destroyed, then he will get stress and disappointment that ends with suicide.
“Aku tidak menjadikan Jin dan Manusia melainkan untuk beribadah kepadaKu” (Q.S. 51:56)
Allah says in the Qur’an that our purpose on this world is none other than to worship Him.
Apart from that, it is only right for a servant to obey all his master’s command. He is also required to honour and respect his master. This was what Allah commanded through our prayers.
Now, if you do not have a purpose in life, find it. If you need to know, we all share the same purpose. Remember, nothing is permanent in this world except Him.
