purposeless creation.

This post is dedicated for those who are searching, who wonder why they wake up in the morning and repeat the same daily routine, for those who are uncertain whether significant events are the result of coincidence or fate - those who cleverly question their existence. This post has been written for you. But, If you are content with your own answers, or worse, the answers of others and you do not long for certainty then really, do not continue to read the following.

There are many certainties in life, your birth and death are only two of them. This is something everyone can agree on; we were all created and we will all die. What lies between these two certainties is what I will write about and explore; life and its purpose.

The reason there is so much confusion and many different answers to this one question is because we are asking the wrong source, we are asking ourselves. Asking the creation it's purpose would be illogical but asking the creator the purpose for its creation would seem more logical, would it not? Whether you believe in a higher being or not, this is a very straight forward concept and can be applied to not only a greater being, but also manufactures, engineers, artists. They are the ones who know best their creations and their purposes whether it's a car, building or picture. So to get to the answer of our initial question, ask yourselves this, would we as human beings really know our own purpose in the first place? and now, ask yourselves this; If we don't know, then who does?

We see mankind in a confused state trying to approach this from many aspects, whether it'd be scientific, philosophical or even religious. It seems we know the purpose for even the pen we write with, but not our own. Technology has advanced, education systems have advanced, our knowledge has advanced yet we still can't answer this one question which I'm sure has played (and will play) on the minds of many.

You may believe in evolution, but personally I believe there are too many flaws and un-answered questions in this theory. At the end of the day, it is just that; a theory. If I found a perfectly sculpted statue in a barren land, I would not Jump to the conclusion that it was the result of many random events, with the right circumstances, over the right time. In fact, for the one who thinks this, you'd label as lacking common sense. So how about something that is clearly more complex than a statue, what about human beings? Are we the product of many random events over time, or would you label the one who thinks this as lacking common sense?

If evolution, to you, makes perfect sense, then do not continue to read the following.

If the concept of evolution is flawed and you can't seem to figure out how we got here, then lets think about the most straight forward concept we can come up with. How about, a creator. Are you turning away at this point because of the negative press associated with this concept? I find it fascinating that the one who believes in such a flawed theory such as evolution is looked at by society as the wise one and the one who believes in a straight forward approach such as a creator is then the one labelled as 'lacking common sense and uncertainty in life.' The perfection of this creation, the human being, the earth we live in, is far too great for us to comprehend. Even with advancement, we can not recreate something similar. The answer simply can not come from mankind.

We all know the saying 'think outside the box' but I doubt that many of us do that. It has become instilled in ourselves that 'thinking outside the box' is incorrect, that we are supposed to take what we are fed as truth and not even contemplate breaking off the main body of thought; society. Personally, I think two factors play a part in this. We fear what is outside the box and the highest authority of the box or we are too caught up to even think about thinking outside the box. If you fall into either category, then you are most definitely enslaved by social order.

Don't limit your thoughts.

Johann Wolfgang once said:
"None are more enslaved than those who think they are free." 
If you were to assess your position in society, it would be difficult to say you weren't under it's mirage yet we have teenagers who tell themselves because they do not listen to mainstream music, they are somehow broken from society. What a delusional race indeed. But when someone, through their appearance, is fighting the social order or demand of society, such as a woman who refuses to expose her body, then they are looked at negatively. Do you see how social order has corrupted our trail of thought, do you see how double standards have been embedded within out society as the norm? This is why you are telling yourself that believing in a higher being goes against order because it is perceived as being out of order. What I say to you is, are you sure you are following the correct order?

We should all aim not to initially understand better what is inside the box but we should aim to understand beforehand what is outside the box and by doing that, we will automatically understand what's inside the box to a much higher level. My advice to you would be, don't limit your thoughts. Are you ready to break off from the main body and go beyond the barriers or are you satisfied wearing your chains? If you're busy polishing your chains, please, do not continue to read the following.

We are a creation, by our nature we are in need of a creator. Asking further, who created the creator, contradicts the statement within itself. Is it in the nature of the creator to be created? No, but it is in the nature of the creation to be created. These statements are very straight forward, by being able to apply them to more than one situation, you know for certain they do not lack common sense. Try applying evolution to more than one situation, does it still make sense? Identifying how we got here is one thing, but to identify why we got here in the first place is another. Again, would it seem logical to ask and answer this question ourselves? lets pose this question to our creator.

"And I have not created Jinn and men except that they should serve me" -Qura'an 51:56.
You might think that this is a statement from a book written hundreds of years ago, outdated, contain flaws and lacks understanding of modern society. Are you sure you would like a book that goes in accordance with modern society or have you seen modern society for what it really is? Is it the book that contains flaws or is it modern society? Personally, I wouldn't believe blindly, I'd need some sort of evidence to show me that I can have solid faith in a book. So let us explore this book.

There are a few simple facts that distinguishes this book as being unique, being different. Keeping in mind this book was written 1400 years ago, the depth of accurate scientific context it contains exceeds any level of intelligence or advancement that many years ago. This in itself distinguishes it from any other religious scripture. If science is your criterion, then put each religious scripture to it's test. I have not found any other religious book that lies in its accordance other than the Qura'an. But please, don't believe me, look for yourself!

I would say 'consider these facts with an open mind' but you don't need to have an open mind to consider these straight forward logical facts. They are simple and easy to follow. Have you broken your chains yet? If you are still associating Islam with the negative image portrayed by the media, then you most certainly have not. The main issue with moving forward is the social order that exists. Our minds have been manipulated, only certain knowledge has been exposed and we are only allowed to think inside the box. For those who claim that the Qura'an is still not a distinguishable book, please, do not continue to read the following.

You are not always fed the truth.

Sometimes there are only so many factual and logical responses you may ignore, how many times can you turn away from them? Are your running away from the truth or are you looking for something in accordance with society and whats acceptable with social order? Society is a fickle thing, it changes within a year. If it's certainty you want, then certainly this is something you shouldn't take as your guidance, rather you should follow something with a solid ground. We were all created and we will all die. These are two certainties we can all agree on, what lies between them is grey but it is your choice to make matters black and white, to follow logic and straight forward concepts, to search outside the box, to stop polishing your chains and to break them instead.
