Fawaid/Benefit: Our Purpose & How We Should Relate to the World by Shaykh Ibn Bāz


Our Purpose and How We Should Relate to the World

Shaykh Ibn Bāz, may Allāh have mercy on him, said: [Y]ou were not created so that you could eat and drink; you were not created to build palaces, plant trees, forge rivers, get married or the like of that, no. For you have been created in order to worship your Lord, […] to stand upright upon obedience to Him—far is He above any kind of imperfection – and to follow His Messenger .

So it is upon you to stand upright upon obedience to Him –far is He above any kind of imperfection—and to follow His Messenger since you have been created for this [purpose]. And everything on Earth has been created for you, for you to use in helping you [fulfill] Allāh’s command and leave off disobedience to Him. And it was not created for you to use in helping you [fulfill] your desires.
