Allah has created the earth..
and created the people on this earth in order to worship Him alone..
And He has sent the prophets and the messengers to tell the people that message...
So, what is the message? And why should we have created on this earth?
*In order to worship Allah(the creator) alone without any partners (i.e. prophets , idols..etc,)..
To pray to Allah (the God) alone..*
*To ask Him only about any thing you want because He is the Powerful {He only say to a thing:"Be!"and it is.}

Really is that all you think there is? God created us just to have someone to worship him and tell God how great he is... don't you think that shows God as a kind of narcissistic kind of being.?

Surely worship out of love is more worthwhile than worship because you believe this is what is required of you. Try as I might I can never get my head round the concept of how God is potrayed in Islam.

BTW.. I don't think we should be asking almighty God for "anything we want," what of our free will and intelligence we are blessed with? Don't you think it's more complimentary to our creator to use what we have been blessed with and make our own way in the world. Thanking him for us just being given the health, intelligence and the determination to do well with our time here on earth and loving him for giving us the chance of enlightenment to know his love.

the guidance is a bounty from God Almighty...arrogance of man is that which make it fell in err.

in the past it is enough for our ancestors to see a man heals others or split the sea or walk on water ...bla bla \ to Believe in him and follow his message.

in this time...people forget what they were before hundreds of years and build everything on modern science & technology. this leads some of them to atheism .they unfortunately think they got it in the right direction, nonetheless no one can deny the existence of God and all of us seek the truth wherever it is .

Are you saying we should be content to live as in the past? Can there be no room for God in a technological modern world?

God does not need us or our prayers, God exists regardless of us. However we need God and our prayers should be out of love for all he is and we are... thanks to him. I believe our spiritual needs are very bit as important as they were two thousand years ago, in fact more so.
