Why Do I Exist?

The purpose of creation is a topic that puzzles every human being at some point in his or her lifetime. Everybody at some time or another asks themselves the question “Why do I exist?” or “For what purpose am I here on earth?”

The variety and complexity of the intricate systems which constitute the fabric of both human beings and the world in which we exist indicate that there must have been a Supreme Being who created us.

Design indicates a designer.


To answer the question “Why did God create man?” it must first be determined from which perspective the question is being asked. From the point of view of God it would mean, “What caused God to create human beings?” while from the human point of view it would mean “For what purpose did God create humans?” Both points of view represent aspects of the intriguing question “Why do I exist?”

This is a difficult and complex topic for human speculation, because human guesswork cannot possibly produce the whole truth in this matter. Think about it.

How can human beings intellectually deduce the reality of their existence when they can hardly understand how their own brain or its higher entity, the mind, functions? Consequently, the many philosophers who have speculated on this question down through the ages have come up with innumerable answers, all of which are based on assumptions which cannot be proven.

Questions on this topic have even led a number of philosophers to claim that we do not really exist and that the whole world is imaginary. For example, the Greek philosopher Plato (428-348 BC) argued that the everyday world of changeable things, which man comes to know by the use of his senses, is not the primary reality, but is a shadow world of appearances.

Many others, as was previously mentioned, claimed and continue to claim that there is no purpose for the creation of humans at all. According to them, Human existence is merely a product of chance. There can be no purpose if life evolved from inanimate matter which only became animate by pure luck. Humankind’s supposed ‘cousins,’ the monkey and apes are not bothered with questions of existence, so why should human beings be bothered with them?


Although most people put the question of why we are created aside after occasional brief reflection, it is extremely critical for us to know the answer. Without knowledge of the correct answer, human beings become indistinguishable from the other animals around them. The animal necessities and desires of eating, drinking and pro-creating become the purpose of human existence by default, and human effort is then focused in this limited sphere. When material satisfaction develops into the most important goal in life, human existence becomes even more degraded than that of the lowest of animals.

Human beings will consistently misuse their God-given intelligence when they lack knowledge of their purpose of existence. The degraded human mind uses its abilities to create drugs and bombs and becomes engrossed in fornication, pornography, suicide, etc.

Without knowledge of the purpose of life, human existence loses all meaning and is consequently wasted.  Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that human beings correctly answer the question “Why are we here?”

Islam Is Simple, Culture Is Complicated

The Islaam being practiced in much of the Muslim world today may be referred to as Cultural Islaam or Folk Islaam (as Christian Missionaries like to refer to it).  The main feature of this version of Islaam is the blind following of local traditions.


The existing cultures are generally a product of practices handed down from earlier generations.  Some cultural practices are based on authentic Islamic traditions, while many are not.  However, the cultural Muslim is unable to distinguish between the two.  All traditions are identified as Islamic and any attempt to exclude any aspect of the cultural traditions is met with stiff resistance.

Although it is well known to all Muslims that Islaam is based on the Qur’aan and the Sunnah, when cultural Muslims are advised to follow instructions from the Qur’aan or the Sunnah they immediately make excuses why they cannot.


The excuses usually consist of statements to the effect that Islaam was not practiced that way in their village or country.  Cultural Muslims are brainwashed with this response.  Whenever they questioned a practice while growing up, their parents would scold them for questioning their traditions saying, “if it was good enough for our forefathers, it is good enough for you.”  Or, do you think our forefathers were all wrong?”

In order for Muslims to re-establish Islamic civilization and promote its ideals to the world as an alternative to Western culture, the inherited excess baggage of cultural Islaam must be eliminated.  Only pure unadulterated Islaam can stand in the face of Western civilization’s cultural onslaught.
