As in why are alive in this moment in time or in general? If it’s in this moment in time it is because you are breathing and oxygen keeps every cell of your body alive and functional. If the question is “why people in general are alive” I’ll have to be with James on this one, I don’t know!
Life is the period of stay in this world. It starts when we are born and ends when we die. We live here to fulfil our Creator’s wishes. To obey the Creator at all times of life. Money is not only important thing. But in today’s modern world due to ignorance and arrogance man has been turned into a materialistic creature. Still real value exists for human life and truth. Ultimately truth only will prevail
