I shall be grateful if some one can explain in detail what is the purpose of creation. it could be for worship of God or it could be for testing us. But both these answers are not satisfactory. God does not need our worship, so why God should do something which he does not require. And if it was for test, then test us for what ? to give reward or punishment ? well here again the question is after all why oh why all this drama ? Since God is infinitely kind, why he did not decide to shower us with his blessings without us going thru this hell what we call as world ? Someone would say that, oh, if you were not created, you would be missing so many bounties of God. Well, also i would be saved from God"s punishment . And in any case, if i am not created at all, then i would not be knowing what i am mission in any case. correct ?? There is an interesting Urdu shairy reflecting these thoughts:

NA THA KUCHH TO KHUDA THA

NA HOTA KUCHH TO KHUDA HOTA

HON E NE DUBOYA MUJKO

NA MAIN HOTA TO KYA HOTA ??

God doesn't need our worship. But God wants us to worship Him because we need it.

Why do we need it? Because worship is to adore God. Don't we benefit when we adore a beautiful person?
