A true Muslim believes that Allah’ s creation is meaningful and that life has a sublime purpose beyond the physical needs and material activities of humankind. The purpose of life is to worship Allah. This does not simply mean that we have to spend our entire lives in constant seclusion and absolute meditation. To worship Allah is to know Him; to love Him; to obey His commandments; to enforce His law in every aspect of life; to serve His cause by doing the right and shunning the evil; and to be just to Him, to ourselves, and to our fellow human beings.

To worship Allah is to “live” life and not to run away from it. In brief, to worship Allah is to imbue ourselves with His Supreme Attributes. This is by no means a simple statement, nor is it an over simplification of the matter. It is most comprehensive and conclusive. So if life has a purpose and if man is created to serve that purpose, then he cannot escape the responsibility. He cannot deny his existence or ignore the vital role he has to play.

When Allah charges one with a responsibility, He provides him with all the required assistance. He endows him with intelligence and power to choose his course of conduct. Man, thus, is strongly commended by Allah to exert his utmost to fully serve the purpose of his existence. Should he fail to do that, or misuse his life or neglect his duties, he shall be responsible to Allah for his wrong deeds.

عمر بن الخطاب -رضي الله عنه- قال: قال رسول الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم-: ((من نام عن حزبه أو عن شيء منه، فقرأه فيما بين صلاة الفجر وصلاة الظهر كتب له كأنما قرأه من الليل) رواه ابو دَاوُدَ ج١ ص١٨٦

It is narrated from Sayyidina Umar R.A. that The Messenger Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: "Whoever sleeps past his full portion [of the late-night prayers] or part of them, he should perform it between Salatul Fajr and Salatul Zhuhr and it would be recorded for him as if he had performed it during the night."Abu Dawood.
