Creation with a Purpose

The Quran asserts that humans were not created without purpose. It emphasizes that the primary reason for human creation is to serve and worship Allah. This concept provides a foundation for much of Islamic thought, highlighting the significance of life and the responsibilities of humans as conscious, moral agents on Earth. It frames human existence within a cosmological context of devotion and service to the divine will.

أَفَحَسِبْتُمْ أَنَّمَا خَلَقْنَٰكُمْ عَبَثًۭا وَأَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْنَا لَا تُرْجَعُونَ

Did you think that We created you in vain, and that to Us you will not be returned?”

وَمَا خَلَقْتُ ٱلْجِنَّ وَٱلْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ

I did not create the jinn and the humans except to worship Me.
