Human being was created on the earth about 3.5 billion years ago and this creation gives birth to his or her life. Every single person has its own concept of life. Some people dedicate their in the happiness of others whereas many people live the life in their own way and that too just for themselves.

Now the main question is that what Islam teaches us about the Life? Islam is a universal religion that covers all the aspects of life for all humanity. It certainly makes clear that the basis of Islam life is in our deeds and actions in this life. The way we deal with others and share their happiness and sorrows grants a new direction to our life. Our actions and happenings becomes the major reason for establishing a new path and road to the future life plan. Islam teaches us to lead our life in a same manner as it was lived by Holy Prophet. Holy Prophet was such a person who prefers sleeping on a single sheet of mattress and breaks his fast with a glass of water? Is such a life ever seen in this century? Well the answer is probably no.

Islam makes us clear with the actual meaning of life that is all about the sacrifice for others, sharing happiness and brotherhood. It always enforces us to fulfill the duties of the government and towards the society. Islam is the religion of justice, peace and equality and our religion expects that these factors would surely be revealed in the life of every single Muslim.

It gives us clear direction for making the life prosperous by helping other people. Have we ever thought that what would happen if this life doesn’t exist? We would definitely be incomplete without such blessings of God. When any of our close relation gets upset and departed from us we always think that the person should return back so that we can love and care that person more.

This is what Islam teaches that we should be in the passion and sincerity of showing love and affection towards one another. There is no doubt that all our life is certainly incomplete, dull and drab without the relations. On the whole at the end in this article we are putting forward some of the vital and main quotations concerning the Islamic meaning for life.
