Purpose of Life

Purpose of Life

A song have I coined
Do keep this in mind:

Purpose of life its title is
Get not deceived by the world please

Tested we're in life throughout 
Whether we believe or do we doubt

Let Allah manage your affairs 
Entrust to Him all your cares

Make the Qur'aan your guide 
Allah then will take your side

In Paradise for ever you'll dwell
If that you do; or, else, in Hell

Rashad Khalifa

Qur'aanic Verse 40:56:


56. Inna allatheena yujadiloona fee ayati Allahi bighayri sultanin atahum in fee sudoorihim illa kibrun mahum bibaligheehi faistaAAith biAllahi innahu huwa alssameeAAu albaseeru


56. Those indeed who raise disputes concerning Allah’s Verses without any divine authority having come to them, there is nothing in their minds but greatness which they will never attain. So take refuge in Allah. He – He alone – indeed is the One to hear, see.

Study Note:

6. Reading this Verse brings Rashad Khalifa to my mind. Did Gabriel or any other angel appear before him to declare the last two Verses of Qur’aanic Chapter 9 as human interpolations? Just because those two Verses did not fit into the mathematical formula he invented to test their genuineness, he had the temerity to virtually contradict Verse 15:9 giving divine guarantee against any such interpolations.

The above is an extract from yet-to-be-published Qur'aanic Studies Manzil VI.
