Shaykh ‘Abdul Qadir said: “Whomsoever has achieved the pleasure of Allah, has obtained everything, and whomsoever was not able to achieve the
pleasure of Allah has lost everything."
Allah Azzawajal has created mankind to attain His pleasure. The rest of creation on earth has been created to serve mankind, even the sun, the moon and the stars in the heaven are created to serve mankind. In this world, Allah tests man through wealth, possessions, land, relatives, spouse, children, sickness, health and even through life and death. The question is whether these worldly things take mankind away from Allah or do mankind use the world to achieve the closeness of Allah the Most High. Allah the Exalted sent the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلمto teach mankind how to spend their life in the worship of Allah , in order to please Him.
