The Purpose of Life

Assalamu Alaykum (May Peace be Upon You),

Yes, the big question, the question of all questions, thee question

With it, the mysteries, qualms, & sorrows of life alleviate & cease to exist

But without it…well…life’s ghastly, daunting, & dead

Personally—as a Muslim—I understand the purpose of the human creation (Al-Hemdulillah)

It gives me immense peace, purpose, & direction: I don’t feel like a chicken running around with its head cut off

The purpose is simple, yet so complex & all-encompassing

I love this short video series because it elaborates & does justice to what the true purpose of life is

Because life’s not about the material world, when we die none of that stuff is coming with us…we can’t use it anymore

I encourage everyone to challenge their perception of what life’s all about (even if it’s nothing at all) & then watch the videos

Because you’ve got nothing to lose & everything to gain

I promise you…you WON’T regret it

Thank you, I wish you all the best in life’s endeavors, & Bon Appetit
