The Purpose of a Good Life: An Islamic Perspective

الحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

All praise is due to ALLAH and peace and blessing upon His Messenger

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful


This presentation of a moral life is not an interpretation of Islam or an opinion of Islam; it is Islam. The evidence for this is that all the quotes, here, is purely from the Qur’an. There is no opinion or conjecture of my own! Moreover, the points made in the meme, are repeated in the Qur’an, which goes to reinforce the points just made, above.

  • Meaning of Life: 2:21
  • Qur’an and Sunnah as pivotal for success: 47:33; 9:71
  • The False god of Hawa (Desire and Opinion): 25:43
  • Failing Deeds: 24:39; 11:15-16
  • Successful deeds: 76:9

To repeat: this is normative Islam. And the words are from ALLAH, the Most Exalted, Himself.

This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah (the Mutaqeen > those with Taqwa > those with love and fear of ALLAH > the Mu’mineen i.e. the Believers).” (Qur’an 2:2)


سبحان ربك رب العزة عما يصفون وسلام على المرسلين والحمد لله رب العالمين والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله محمد وعلى اله وصحبه أجمعين

Exalted be your Lord, the Lord of Glory, above what they attribute to Him, and peace be upon the Messengers, and all praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Universe. And the peace and blessing upon prophet Mohammed and his relatives and all his companions.
