What is the mission of life?
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Dear and Beloved Brother, the Glorious Book of Guidance revealed by the Lord Creator of the Worlds, The Al-Quran answers each and every one of the questions which you have asked in absolute and crystal clear details! It is absolutely imperative that every person who has been bestowed with intelligence must address these all-important questions you have asked in his life-time; and the absolutely best and only way to address all these questions is to read the Glorious Quran which our Merciful Lord has revealed for the guidance of mankind.
Allah is our witness, if we were to address and explain in detail each and every one of these all-important questions of creation, of life and of the Hereafter you have asked, it would require a volume of books to be written! Such is the importance of these questions; and the only way to address these questions is to read the Glorious Quran, for it leaves no questions unanswered!
As it would be almost impossible for us to give you complete details and do justice to the very important questions you have asked in this article, we will address each of your questions in brief for the sake of brevity. If you need further details or guidance on any aspect of these very important questions, we would be honored to address them for you in light of the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah.
Your Question: i am really confused that why i am here in this world , why God has created me,
Before addressing the question why Allah created mankind, one needs to understand why Allah Subhanah created the heavens and the earth and everything in between:
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 15 Surah Hijr verses 55-56:
85 We created not the heavens the earth and all between them but for Just Ends. And the Hour is surely coming (when this will be manifest). So overlook (any human faults) with gracious forgiveness.
86 For verily it is thy Lord Who is the Master-Creator, Knowing all things.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 30 Surah Rome verse 8:
8 Do they not reflect in their own minds? Not but for Just Ends and for a term appointed did Allah create the heavens and the earth and all between them: yet are there truly many among men who deny the meeting with their Lord (at the Resurrection)!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 21 Surah Anbiya verses 16-19:
16 Not for (idle) sport did We create the heavens and the earth and all that is between!
17 If it had been Our wish to take (just) a pastime, We should surely have taken it from the things nearest to Us if We would (ever) do (such a thing)!
18 Nay We hurl the Truth against falsehood and it knocks out its brain and behold, falsehood doth perish! Ah! Woe be to you for the (false) things ye ascribe (to Us).
19 To Him belong all (creatures) in the heavens and on earth.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 44 Surah Dukhan verses 38-40:
38 We created not the heavens the earth and all between them merely in (idle) sport:
39 We created them not except for Just Ends: but most of them do not understand.
40 Verily the Day of Sorting Out is the time appointed for all of them!
It is evident from the above verses that the Majestic Lord and Creator did not create everything in existence as a mere play or for idle sport, but rather The All-Wise Creator created everything in Truth for a Just End. The Majestic and Supreme Lord Creator created everything in the heavens and the earth and subjected it to man for a reason!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 14 Surah Ibraheem verses 32-34:
32 It is Allah Who hath created the heavens and the earth and sendeth down rain from the skies and with it bringeth out fruits wherewith to feed you; it is He Who hath made the ships subject to you that they may sail through the sea by His command; and the rivers (also) hath He made subject to you.
33 And He hath made subject to you the sun and the moon both diligently pursuing their courses: and the Night and the Day hath He (also) made subject to you.
34 And He giveth you of all that ye ask for. But if ye count the favors of Allah never will ye be able to number them: verily man is given up to injustice and ingratitude.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 16 Surah Nahl verse 12:
12 He has made subject to you the Night and the Day; the Sun and the Moon; and the Stars are in subjection by His Command: verily in this are Signs for men who are wise.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verses 65-66:
65 Seest thou not that Allah has made subject to you (men) all that is on the earth and the ships that sail through the sea by His command? He withholds the sky (rain) from falling on the earth except by His leave: for Allah is Most Kind and Most Merciful to man.
66 It is He Who gave you life will cause you to die and will again give you life: truly man is a most ungrateful creature!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 45 Surah Jathiya verse 13:
13 And He has subjected to you as from Him all that is in the heavens and on earth: behold in that are Signs indeed for those who reflect.
The Supreme, Majestic, All-Wise and All-Knowing Creator created everything in existence and subjected the entire creation to man! The sun, the moon, the winds, the rains, the animals, the vegetation, absolutely everything in creation is subjected to man for a reason!
So now we come to your very very important question: Why did the Lord create man?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 67 Surah Mulk verses 1-2:
1 Blessed be He in Whose Hands is Dominion: and He over all things Hath Power.
2 He Who created Death and Life that He may TEST which of you is best in deed: and He is the Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving
Thus, the Quran guides that the Supreme and Majestic Lord created everything in existence, and subjected His complete creation to serve His best creation (man); and thus involved mankind to a simple test.
And what exactly is this test?
The All-Knowing, All-Wise Lord bestowed two things upon His best creation (ie. mankind) which He did not bestow upon any in His Supreme Creation, and thus put mankind to a test:
Intelligence or the Power of Reasoning
A free will for a limited period of one life-time to choose whatever path one wishes to live his life.
Whoever amongst man studies and ponders over the innumerable wonders and Signs in the various creations of the Majestic Lord, and uses his bestowed intelligence and power of reasoning to understand his mission of creation, recognize His Supreme Lord and Creator, and of his own free will chooses to submit his will to the Will of his Creator, and chooses to live his life in accordance with the guidance of his Creator, passes the test of life and is promised the Eternal Mercy, Grace, and Rewards of Allah Subhanah.
And whoever amongst man uses his bestowed intelligence and power of reasoning to do everything else but does not recognize or denies his Supreme Creator, refuses to submit his will to the Will of His Creator, and of his own free will chooses to live his life in accordance with any guidance other than that of His Supreme Creator, miserably fails the test of life and will have a severe accounting in the Presence of His All-Mighty and Majestic Lord on an Inevitable Day.
Thus my dear and beloved brother in Islam, the one and only reason or wisdom behind all the supreme creation of the Majestic and Supreme Lord is to provide the tools to enable His best creation (ie. mankind) to fulfill this simple test of life: utilize the bestowed intelligence, recognize the Lord; and of ones own bestowed free will submit that will to the Will of the Lord!
Your Question: what will happen if i got the Janat on the day of judgement
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 83 Surah Mutaffefeen verses 22-36:
22 Truly the Righteous (in
23 On Thrones (of Dignity) will they command a sight (of all things):
24 Thou wilt recognize in their Faces the beaming brightness of Bliss.
25 Their thirst will be slaked with Pure Wine sealed:
26 The seal thereof will be Musk: and for this let those aspire who have aspirations:
27 With it will be (given) a mixture of Tasnim:
28 A spring from (the waters) whereof drink those Nearest to Allah.
29 Those in sin used to laugh at those who believed
30 And whenever they passed by them used to wink at each other (in mockery);
31 And when they returned to their own people they would return jesting;
32 And whenever they saw them they would say "Behold! these are the people truly astray!"
33 But they had not been sent as Keepers over them!
34 But on this Day the Believers will laugh at the Unbelievers.
35 On Thrones (of Dignity) They will command (a sight) (of all things).
36 Will not the Unbelievers have been paid back for what they did?
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 88 Surah Ghashiya verses 8-16:
8 (Other) faces that Day will be joyful.
9 Pleased with their Striving
10 In a Garden on high
11 Where they shall hear no (word) of vanity:
12 Therein will be a bubbling spring:
13 Therein will be Thrones (of dignity) raised on high.
14 Goblets placed (ready).
15 And Cushions set in rows
16 And rich carpets (All) spread out.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 56 Surah Waqiah verses 10-24:
10 And those Foremost (in Faith) will be Foremost (in the Hereafter).
11 These will be those Nearest to Allah:
12 In Gardens of Bliss:
13 A number of people from those of old
14 And a few from those of later times.
15 (They will be) on Thrones encrusted (with gold and precious stones).
16 Reclining on them facing each other.
17 Round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness).
18 With goblets (shining) beakers and cups (filled) out of clear-flowing fountains:
19 No after-ache will they receive therefrom nor will they suffer intoxication:
20 And with fruits any that they may select;
21 And the flesh of fowls any that they may desire.
22 And (there will be) Companions with beautiful big and lustrous eyes--
23 Like unto Pearls well-guarded.
24 A Reward for the Deeds of their past (Life).
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 76 Surah Dhahr verses 13-22:
13 (The dwellers of
14 And the shades of the (Garden) will come low over them and the bunches (of fruit) there will hang low in humility.
15 And amongst them will be passed round vessels of silver and goblets of crystal
16 Crystal-clear made of silver: they will determine the measure thereof (according to their wishes).
17 And they will be given to drink there of a Cup (of Wine) mixed with Zanjabil
18 A fountain there called Salsabil.
19 And round about them will (serve) youths of perpetual (freshness): if thou seest them thou wouldst think them scattered Pearls.
20 And wherever thou lookest there thou wilt see a Bliss and a Realm Magnificent.
21 Upon them will be green Garments of fine silk and heavy brocade and they will be adorned with Bracelets of silver; and their Lord will give to them to drink of a Wine Pure and Holy.
22 "Verily this is a Reward for you and your Endeavor is accepted and recognized."
The main principle,

our Merciful and Gracious Lord is that whoever enters the

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 25 Surah Furqan verses 15-16:
As them, Is this (the Fire) better, or the everlasting gardens which have been promised to the God-fearing, righteous people (men and women)?. That will be the recompense of their good deeds and the final destination of their journey, wherein, they will get everything they desire, and wherein they will dwell forever. This is a promise which your Lord has taken upon Himself to fulfill.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 6.303 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Prophet (saws) said, "Allah, High and Exalted He is, Says, 'I have prepared for My pious worshipers (in Paradise) such things as no eye has ever seen, no ear has ever heard of, and nobody has ever thought of. All that is reserved, besides which, all that you have seen, is nothing." Then he (saws) recited: "No soul knows what is kept hidden (in reserve) for them of joy as a reward for what they used to do." (Quran 32.17)
Your Question: You know that there are many people in this world who dont follow any religion.. They don`t believe in God ...
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 76 Surah Dhahr verses 2-3:
2 Verily We created man from a drop of mingled sperm in order to test him: so We gave him (the gifts) of Hearing and Sight.
3 We showed him the Way: whether he be grateful or ungrateful (rests on his will).
The All-Knowing, All-Wise Lord created everything in existence, subjected the complete creation to His best creation (ie. mankind) and involved mankind to the test of life. The precise wisdom behind giving man intelligence and the power of reasoning, and a free will for a period of one life on earth is to see who amongst mankind of his own free will believes in His Lord, submits to Him, and is grateful for His Innumerable Favors; and who amongst mankind denies Him and is thus ungrateful to his Supreme and Majestic Lord.
Because the All-Wise Lord has subjected man to a test, He gave His Signs and in His Sublime Mercy and Grace sent His Messengers and His Messages to guide mankind unto the path that leads to His Mercy, making clear the Rewards for those who of their own free will choose to strive to pass the test, and warn those who of their own free will choose to be deluded by the transient attractions of this worldly life and thus fail the test!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 10 Surah Yunus verses 40-44: Some of these people will believe in (The Quran), and others will not. Your Lord knows these mischief-makers very well indeed. If these people deny you, say to them: I am responsible for my deeds and you are for yours. You are not accountable for what I do, nor am I for what you do. There are many among them who hear what you say, but will you make the deaf to listen to you, even though they be incapable of understanding this? Then there are many others among them who see you. But will you show the way to the blind, even though they be bereft of sight? The fact is that Allah does not in any way wrong the people, but they wronged themselves!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 1-3: All praise is for Allah Alone, Who has sent down this Book to His Servant (Mohamed (saws), and assigned nothing crooked to it. This Book says everything directly, so that he may warn the people of the severe chastisement of Allah and give good news to the believers, who do righteous deeds, that they will have an excellent reward.
It is in the basic nature of any test, that some will strive to pass it, and some will not strive and will thus fail it! Indeed there are a multitude of people on this earth who of their own free will have chosen to delude themselves with the frivolous attractions of this short and transient worldly life, and have chosen not to utilize their bestowed intelligence to ask or answer the questions which you have asked and strive to determine their mission of life!
Those alone who chose to strive to ask these all-important questions and determine ones true mission of life, those alone who chose to strive to get them answered in light of the Guidance revealed by their Lord, and those alone who subsequently believed and strove to do righteous good deeds in accordance with the revealed Guidance of their Lord will pass the test of life laid upon mankind by their Supreme and Majestic Lord.
Those who chose to disregard the test of life, chose to delude themselves with the trivial pleasures of this short and transient worldly life, chose to give more importance to the life of this world and disregard their eternal and everlasting life of the Hereafter, and of their own free will chose to deny and reject the Guidance of their All-Mighty Lord will miserably fail the test of life laid upon them by their Supreme and Majestic Creator!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 79 Surah Naziaat verses 34-41:
34 Therefore when there comes the Great Overwhelming (Event, ie. The Day of Judgment!)
35 The Day when Man shall remember (all) that he strove for
36 And Hell-Fire shall be placed in full view for (all) to see
37 Then for such as had transgressed all bounds
38 And had preferred the life of this world
39 The Abode will be Hell-Fire;
40 And for such as had entertained the fear of standing before their Lord's (tribunal), and had restrained (their) soul from Lower Desires
41 Their abode will be the Garden (of
Thus in conclusion, on the Inevitable Day when the Results of the Test are declared, those who of their own free will chose to believe in their Creator and live their life according to His Will will receive their promised rewards; and those who of their own free will chose to deny their Creator, or chose to worship other gods with the Creator, and lived their lives according to their own will or according to the will of any other than the Will of their Creator, will receive their due in the Presence of the Lord Who Created them and everything that exists in creation!

Allah is our witness, you will find the answers to each and every question that you have posed in complete detail to your satisfaction in the Very Words of The One Who is the Lords of the heavens and the earth and everything that exists in between!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah An-Nisa verse 122: The Promise of Allah is (Absolutely) True, and who can be truer in his word than Allah?
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
