What is the true purpose of life?
To answer this question, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah and Mahdi (as) writes: “When we look into the faculties of man and try to discover what their highest reach is, we find that he seeks after God, the Exalted. He desires to become so devoted to God that he should keep nothing as his own, and all that is his should become God’s. It is obvious, therefore, that the highest reach of man’s faculties is to meet God, the Exalted. Thus, the true purpose of his life is that the window of his heart should open towards God.”
