Purpose of Life

Who can tell it better than our creator Himself? Here is from Surah- Ad-Dhariyaat:
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
Transliteration Wama khalaqtu aljinna waalinsa illa liyaAAbudooni
Abdullah Yusuf Ali I have only created Jinns and men, that they may serve Me.
Mufti Taqi Usmani I did not create the Jinns and the human beings except for the purpose that they should worship Me.
Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me.
Sahih International And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me.
