Abstract: 

Most of philosophers who studied the “meaning of life” philosophically regarded it as the “goal of life”. Given that God and his actions are right and true, Tabatabaei considered God to be purposeful in creating man. Therefore the creation of man is not vain and for fun but is targeted toward a certain goal. Man was born without any choice, but he is free to continue his life.
Hence he must find out his goal and ideal. Whereas all things met with human life such as fellowman, nature, other worlds and the futures are under God’s providence and lordship, it is reasonable and beneficial for man to act upon God’s advises in choosing his goal. Doing so, man will be helped by all aforementioned things to approach his ideal and will be satisfied with his life.
Otherwise we will be in contrast to the general trend of creation and thus our lives become very hard and finally he will be defeated by them and pass a wretched life. The final ideal of man in his life must be the achievement of real and pleasant life, an ideal which all prophets have invited us to reach to.
