    Here I stand and if I shut my eyes, and try to conceive my existence, "I", "I", "I", what is the idea before me? The idea of a body. Am I, then, nothing but a combination of material substances? The Vedas declare, "No". I am a spirit living in a body. I am not the body. The body will die, but I shall not die. Here am I in this body; it will fall, but I shall go on living. I had also a past. The soul was not created, for creation means a combination which means a certain future dissolution. If then the soul was created, it must die. Some are born happy, enjoy perfect health, with beautiful body, mental vigour and all wants supplied. Others are born miserable, some are without hands or feet, others again are idiots and only drag on a wretched existence. Why, if they are all created, why does a just and merciful God create one happy and another unhappy, why is He so partial? Nor would it mend matters in the least to hold that those who are miserable in this life will be happy in a future one. Why should a man be miserable even here in the reign of a just and merciful God? In the second place, the idea of a creator God does not explain the anomaly, but simply expresses the cruel fiat of an all-powerful being. There must have been causes, then, before his birth, to make a man miserable or happy and those were his past actions.

    What is the purpose of a human life? To live your life according to God's plan and thus to save your soul. "For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Mark 8:36-37) "Behold now you that say: Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and there we will spend a year, and will traffic, and make our gain. Whereas you know not what shall happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is a vapor which appears for a little while, and afterwards shall vanish away. For that you should say: If the Lord will, and if we shall live, we will do this or that." (James 4:13-15)

    Islam's point of view: "And I did not create the Jinn and mankind except to worship Me… "(Quran, 51:56-58)

    God would be selfish if he created humans just to worship him.

    Nobody have seen or experienced god. but people still speaking about the existence of god. why? by standing on the platform of religion is that just their blind belief about god?

    the purpose of life for muslim is that: God created man to serve Him, meaning that men should believe in the One God and do good. This is the object of human life. God says, “I have not created men except that they should serve Me.” (The Winds That Scatter, 51:56) God created man superior to any other living creatures. He says, “We have created man in the best make.” (The Fig, 95:04) This superiority gives man the ability to progress both materially and spiritually. The material progress he makes will benefit him both in this world and in the hereafter. Thus, since all human beings will die, the ultimate goal of life in this world is the eventual meeting with the Creator in the hereafter. What one has to do is to believe in God and follow His commands in doing righteousness. God says, “Whoever expects to meet his Lord, let him work righteousness, and in the worship of his Lord, admit no one as partner.” (The Cave, 18:110) This life is a preparation for the hereafter – the ‘Eternal Home’ – to which all human beings ultimately go. As such, Muslims are required to observe righteousness in their daily life, based on Quranic teachings, like eating halal food, wearing modest clothing, performing prayers, giving alms, etc, because of the fact that they live for God alone. And to those who strive to attain nearness to Him, God sees to it. He says, “O you man! Verily you are ever toiling on towards your Lord – painfully toiling – but you shall meet Him.” (The Rending Asunder, 84:6) And overall you may say that , it is bad or weird why do we have to workship God and that all...............what I believe is that by workship Him the creater is good for us and even He doesnt't need our workship or our good deeds , its what will help us herafter. I have u got the answer :)

    The purpose of life is to worship the Flying Spaghetti Monster, obviously.
