What Is The Purpose Of Life?

Life was created for all living beings although man is dominion over all other living beings. The cycle of life for human beings begin as soon they are conceived and ends the day that person dies. We all live our lives through the day and when night time comes, we unconsciously fall asleep. The inner workings of our body are programmed to work through the day and sleep at night. Humans are naturally driven to make life better for themselves but the end result is death. So why are we here? What is the purpose of life?


Genesis 1:26-28

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Exodus 8:20
20 And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

Psalm 66:4
4 All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.


The main purpose of life is to worship God and to follow the teachings of his prophets and the Holy Scripture. God created humans to test for those who will observe good deeds on earth. That is why He gave them a chance to make a choice in whatever they do. Human beings are gifted by God with freewill. The purpose of life therefore revolves around absolutely submitting to God and showing the best of conduct on earth.

“And I created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone).”
Quran 51:56

“…Who has created life and death so that He may try you which of you are best in deeds…”
Quran 67:2

“Did you then think that We created you in vain, and that you would not be returned to us?”
Quran 23:115
