Peace be on you. God has made human in the world for great purpose of worship the worship that should enable people to live mutually peaceful. God expects from people that they should get benefits of His bounties granted in this world for the sake of His pleasure in this world and in the world to come, i.e. the Hereafter.


Times are chaotic. Out there, there are people who consider that this physical life is final and purpose of life is to enjoy it as pastime, decorate houses, and wear expensive clothes. They consider life as game, gamble, fun, revealing-fashions, sensual advertisements in media, amassing wealth, family pride, shiny cars, huge houses, sons and increasing business.


According to God, believers should use these material things for themselves as taught by the commandments of God, to earn pleasure of God (Ref: Holy Quran, ch57 : v21 and 22). They should give some of the bounties to needy and underprivileged ones to ease their lives. They should vie each other in good works. That would be immensely rewarding. They will get goodness in this world and in the life after. Holy Quran state:
But for him who fears to stand before his Lord, there are two Gardens. (chapter 55: verse 47)
".....Allah is the Lord of immense grace." (ch 57 : v 22)
[Ref: Address of Ahmadiyya Khalifah June 29, 2013 ]
