The Purpose of Life


Also let me tell you, the Quran has 114 chapters and over 6000 verses. And there were many people in the time of the prophet who memorized this book entirely. How does that happen? Did anyone memorize the Bible, the Torah, the Psalms? Nobody, no one—not even the Pope. But there are millions of Muslims today who have memorized the entire Qura—the entire book! This is the ambition of every Muslim. How many Christians have you ever met who have memorized the Bible? None. Because you never met anyone who knew what was the whole Bible. Christians, themselves, have 700 different denominations and there are approximately thirty-nine different versions of the Bible with different books, different verses, different amounts of verses and different amount of chapters and they don’t even agree to that.

The Quran has been universally preserved, without the slightest alteration in15 centuries. If all of this is true, would you agree to say that this book is quite profound and unique, to say the least? Would you be honest enough of to say that? Of course you would, if you were honest. And you are. Within yourselves you have to come to that conclusion. Many other non-Muslims came to the same conclusion: Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Winston Churchill, Napoleon Bonaparte…whether they accepted Islam openly or not—they came to same conclusion that there is no other literature in the world that is as profound as the Quran as a source of wisdom, healing and direction. Now that we have settled the issue of the authenticity of the Quran let us turn to another issue.

What are the major themes of the Quran?

   The oneness of Almighty God, which includes his names, attributes, relationship between the Almighty and His creatures and how man should maintain that relationship;

  The continuity of prophets and messengers, their lives, their message, and their overall mission, the insistence upon following the universal example-Muhammad (pbuh), the seal of all the prophets and messengers.

  Reminding human beings of the brevity of this life, and calling them to the eternity of the hereafter. Hereafter; after here. After we leave, we are going somewhere, and we are responsible because we have been told—even if you have rejected it.
