You have asked a great and mighty matter, but it is easy for the one for whom God makes it easy.
Verily God, The Blessed and Most High has not created you without a purpose.
He has not left you neglected and without a way of attaining guidance.
Rather, He has continually sent messengers with Books to the nations to inform them of their Lord and to teach them how to be slaves of Him.
For verily there is not a creation in existence except that He created it.
There is nothing except that He proceeded it.
And there is no affair except that He Knows it and Controls it.
Who then is there worthy of being a slave of after Him?
So let us look at what God has revealed upon the worlds and how we might take a way to Him.
Every since the time of the first messenger to mankind, Noah, God has been sending messengers to call the people back to be slaves of Him.
For verily our father Adam (peace be upon him) was a slave of God.
A monotheist, one who worshipped God alone with no partners.
And God brought out from Adam 10 generations of offspring, all of them monotheists.
They worshipped God alone, and no-one else.
However, over time they went to excesses in their praise of the righteous people.
They had erected images in their honour that they might remember them and be encouraged upon good deeds.
However, this is not something that God has legislated and every invented matter in religion is misguidance.
When the people with knowledge among them passed away, the devil suggested to them that their fathers used to ask these statues for rain and they followed the call of the devil.
They committed polytheism, unbelief, covered over the clear truth that God alone Controls the Affairs and He is the only one worthy of worship.
God sent after this the first messenger to the world, Noah.
He called his people back to the worship of God alone.
God has said in the Qur’an – which is the final Book to mankind, preserved in its entirety to this day:
How To Be a Slave of God?
God, The Most High, has said:
وَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ رَبِّى وَرَبُّكُمْ فَٱعْبُدُوهُ هَٰذَا صِرَٰطٌ مُّسْتَقِيمٌ
“Jesus said: ‘And verily God is my Lord and your Lord. So worship Him (Alone). that is the straight Path.”The Noble Qur’an, Chapter Mary (19) Verse 36
And He, The Perfect, has said,
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ ٱلْجِنَّ وَٱلْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ
“And I did not create the jinns and humans except to worship Me.”The Noble Qur’an 51:56
So for this you were created, slave of God, and in this is your life and this is what you will be questioned concerning.
What is upon you is to submit to God alone, willingly, upon monotheism, turning away from all polytheism and its people.
This is the way of Abraham and those who followed him, and in Arabic the word for it is “Islam” and its followers “Muslims”.

I ask God’s forgiveness for me and all the believing servants and guidance for You, verily He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
