And when your Lord said to the angels, ‘Indeed, I will make upon the earth a khalifah.'” [2:30]

Let’s talk about our purpose.

A good starting point is the creation of mankind which the Quran begins with the verse above.

khalifah is a successor.

Allah wants us to be a successor on the earth.

What is the purpose of a successor?

To carry out the vision of the one who they succeed.

That was the job of Adam (as) and all his descendants.

What do you think is meant by a successor?
