What’s Your Goal?

Take a moment to reflect upon this:

You got hired for a job. You were informed in the contract/agreement that you must follow the exact details and complete the job in the specific manner, in order to successfully complete the job. You were WARNED that if you did not follow the exact details, you would fail in this job and therefore you will not get paid the incentive (reward) due to your negligence to follow the commands given.
Once you learned about the conditions in the contract, you decided to continue with what you thought best and you decided NOT to do the job in the way the boss stated in the original contract/agreement. The boss noticed some errors in your work and thought to give you a warning so he sent you a employee to remind you about the contract and to be a example for you and show you how to do it right.You decided to ignore the boss and the employee and you decided to continue doing the job in the way you wished to.Your contract ended. You failed in completing the job in the right way. You were fired as a punishment and you did not receive you incentive(reward). Do you think this employee deserved to receive that reward? Do you think it was unfair to punish him by firing him? Obviously he deserved to be fired and it would not be fair or just to give him the reward because he didn’t work hard like other employees.Now, think about the one who has been given life. He has a short period of time which is his contract. He was created for one main GOAL ― ❝To worship Allāh.❞

Allāh says in the Qur’ān:

❝And I created not the jinns and humans except they should worship Me (Alone).❞ (51:56)

We Humans, took on this job and accepted it before entering earth.

Allāh says in the Qur’ān:

❝Truly, We did offer al-Amānah (the trust or moral responsibility or honesty and all the duties which Allāh has ordained) to the heavens and the earth, and the mountains, but they declined to bear it and were afraid of it (i.e., afraid of Allāh’s Torment). But mankind bore it. Verily, he was unjust (to himself) and ignorant (of its results)❞ (33:72)

We came on earth and after some time got distracted and forgot our original GOAL (to worship Allāh), and therefore Allāh sent numerous messengers to warn us.

Then Allāh sent one final book the Qur’ān (which he promised will not be altered and will be persevered till the arrival of the final hour on earth) and one final messenger (Prophet Muhammad sall Allāhu ʿalay-hi wa-sallam) who was the best of mankind and best of examples and Allāh made his teachings (sunnah) to be persevered too.

But we humans still wish to continue in misguidance and ignore the advise given to us and wish to continue disobeying Allāh.

At the same time, Allāh the extremely merciful, still continues to feed us and provide for us (even though we disobey him by denying him and turning away from Allāh).

Once our life is done, do you think we will deserve Paradise?

Obviously NO!

Paradise is for the one who WORKED for it. If the slave disobeyed and turned away, he will receive the most just punishment he deserves, abiding in the hellfire.
