Utilise the Dunya for Fulfilling the Purpose of Your Creation – Shaykh Uthaymeen

Shaykh Uthaymeen (rahimahullah),

We are created for the purpose of worshipping Allāh alone and everything upon the earth has been created for us [i.e. to aid us in this purpose and for lawful enjoyment].

هُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ لَكُم مَّا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا 

He it is Who created for you all that is on earth. (Al-Baqarah: 29) 

And amazing it is that nowadays our people busy themselves with what has been created for them at the expense of what they were created for. This is [tantamount] to foolishness – that they are busying themselves with that which was created for them at the expense of something which they were created for (and if this purpose is fulfilled will lead them to the Pleasure of their Lord, Inshā Allāh t’āla).


An excerpt from Shaykh Uthaymeen’s Tafsir of Surah adh-Dhaariyat, taken from the printed book ‘Tafsir Al-Hujurat to Al-Hadid’ pg 168

Categories of Creation of Man – Shaykh b. Bāz


Categories of Creation of Man – Shaykh b. Bāz

إِنَّ مَثَلَ عِيسَىٰ عِندَ اللَّهِ كَمَثَلِ آدَمَ خَلَقَهُ مِن تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ قَالَ لَهُ كُن فَيَكُونُ

Verily, the likeness of Easa (Jesus) before Allah is the likeness of Aadam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him: “Be!” – and he was. (Aali Imraan: 59)

Aadam (alayhis salaam) was created from earth, and Allah revealed (revelation) to him and gave him a legislation to tread upon. Easa (alayhis salaam) was created from a woman without a man, therefore just as it’s not possible to deny (in reality) that Aadam (alayhis salaam) was created from earth, likewise the fact that Easa (alayhis salaam) came from a woman and not a man is not rejected, because in actuality this is easier and simpler than the creation of Aadam (alayhis salaam) from soil – without a father or a mother.

The creation of man is split into four categories:

1. Created from soil without a father or a mother.
2. Created from a man without a woman, and this was Hawwa (Eve), Allah created her from Aadam.

وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا
And from him (Aadam) He created his wife [Hawwa (Eve)]. (An-Nisaa: 1)

3. Created from a woman without a man in opposite to the creation of Hawwa, who was created from a man without a woman and Easa was created from a woman without a man, by Allah’s power and ability he created them both with his statement; Be! And then they were created.
4. The rest of mankind (were created) from a man and a woman, as Allah (Mighty and Majestic) says:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقْنَاكُم مِّن ذَكَرٍ وَأُنثَىٰ
O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female. (Al-Hujuraat: 13)

These are the four categories of creation of mankind, and these are from Allah’s signs indicating His great and vast power and ability, that all He has to say is Be! and it occurs.
