[The real existence on earth is of the person or the system that benefits humanity]

Dear Salman Saheb,

You are right that we are here to benefit people.

13:17 He sends down water from the height causing the riverbeds to flow according to their measure and the flood bears on its surface swelling foam. When they use fire to refine metals for their jewelry or equipment, foam is produced like it. In this way, God is citing for you the example of the truth and falsehood. For, as far as the foam is concerned, it passes away as scum upon the riverbanks - While that which is of benefit to mankind, exists on earth. This is how God uses analogies for you to understand. [The real existence on earth is of the person or the system that benefits humanity]

MEEZAAN: In the Court of Allah, our good and bad deeds are not counted and we do not get any percentage as passing marks. It is a scale, balance or TARAZOO that weighs our good deeds and bad deeds. If the good side is heavier we pass. You may consider this an allegory. Allah has to communicate with us according to our limited intellect.

21:47 We will set up the scales of justice on the Day of Resurrection, and no person will be wronged in the least. Though the good or evil be of the weight of a mustard seed, We will bring it forth. We are Sufficient for reckoning and none can take account as We do. [99:7-8]

23:102 Then those whose scales (of good deeds) are heavy, they are the successful.

23:103 And those whose scales are light, it is those who have wasted their own ‘self’, and abide in Hell.
