Allah has created us:
In the first matter, that “Allah has created us” : meaning, He produced us from non-existence, so before we were created we were nothing, just as He, the Most High said:
Allah has provided us Sustenance:
“He has given us provision“, provisions includes food, drink, children, clothing, habitations, transport, and all other requirements to live in this world. He knew our needs, so therefore He made subservient for us, whatever is in the heavens and the earth all of it for our welfare, in order for us to remain alive and in order that we fulfill our purpose of creation i.e. the worship of Allah subhana watala.
Allah did not leave us without Purpose:
Al-Haml means, something which is neglected and abandoned, which no one cares about. So Allah has created us and gave us provision for wise purpose, He didn’t create us in vain and nor without any purpose.
The faculties given us are for great purpose, that we should worship Him, He didn’t created us like cattle, that they live, eat, give birth to its off-springs and pass away, because they are not duty-bound, they were not commanded and they were not forbidden. Allah subhana watallah said in Quran,
And He did not create us for the life of this world, that we live in it, roam around freely and make merry and eat, drink and make ourselves at home in it, and that there is nothing after it. Rather life is a planting-ground and a market place for the next life so that we should equip ourselves in it with righteous deeds. Then, we will be resurrected, we will be taken account of it, and finally we will be recompensed in accordance with our deeds.
This is the purpose behind the creation of the jinn and mankind. And the proof for that is many ayahs which prove Al-Ba’ath (the raising to life after death), an-Nushoor (the resurrection) , al-Jazaa (the recompensing) and al-Hisaab ( the reckoning).
So, this world is the an abode of action but as for the hereafter then it is an abode of recompense, either paradise or the fire and he did not leave us without purpose, as is thought by the atheists and those who think that death is the end of us.
This is not possible and this will never be the case.
