The Purpose of life

"And I (Allah) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone)."(Quran 51:56)

There is always a purpose behind everything, and what is the purpose of life on this earth? why are we here? We know that life is short, all of us will die, then what is it, that each of us must accomplish before we depart from this place.

Allah tells us in the Quran that:"Whatever you have(of worldly possessions) will (one day) come to an end,(But) whatever is with Allah will remain forever.-(Surah Nahl -16: 96)"

"Truly, the life of this world is nothing but a (quick passing) enjoyment, and verily, the Hereafter that is the home that will remain forever." (Quran 40:39)

"And know that your possessions and your children are but a trial and that surely with Allah is a mighty reward." (Quran 8:28)
