Q. What does the Qur’an say about the reason for the creation

of humankind?

A. The Qur’an answers:

(Allah says) “I have not created jinn and humankind, except for

My worship.”

Chapter 51. v. 56.

Q. What is the daily prayer of a Muslim?

A. The opening chapter of the Qur’an, surah Fatihah:

“ In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful,

Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of all the Worlds,

Most Gracious, Most Merciful;

Master of the Day of Judgment;

Thee alone do we worship, and Thine aid we seek;

Show us the straight way;

The way of those on whom Thou has bestowed Thy Grace

Those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.”

Chapter 1. Vv. 1-7.

Commentators of the Qur’an have commented as follows:

“Those whose portion is wrath” are the Jews who have

deliberately distorted the message and are cursed by

ALLAH for this.

Those who have gone astray, are the Christians, as they

have made Jesus into god, son of god, and believe in a

triune god etc. Every prophet of GOD taught the worship

of ONE GOD only but the Church corrupted this

fundamental teaching.

Question: How would you describe the life of this world?

Qur’an answers:

Chapter 57. v. 20.
