I am going to make a lecture in here, so you probably find it useful

1st of all, all religions do not come out of the blue, they have a reason and most of it is dedicated to God, even Idol worshipping was originally the raproachment to God, the sacrifice giving was ever since the beginning of Humanity, when Abel offered his sacrifice and his sacrifice was accepted by God, and Cain offered his sacrificebut wasnot accepted by God.

2nd All these religions and stories of previous prophets of God, do not come out of the blue, (there is no smoke without fire).

3rd, All miracles of previous Prophets and supernatural events that happened to people and nations of the past eras are not out of the blue.

All these stories have a trace of truth in them.

4th The Holy Quran is the only living Miracle that still exist amongst us today., it is full of miracles from literature and Arabic eloquence unmatched by any poet or of the most eloquent person, unmatched by any language of the world. it was the language of science in the middle ages. - there are different types of Miracles in the Holy Quran *Prophecies of future evens that passed and did happen, Numerical miracles, language eloquence miracles, recent scientific discoveries that were found information in the Holy Quran).Grammar and many other things.

Prophet Muhammad, the illitrate, came with such marvels out of the blue. his Hadiths spoke of prophecies that happened in the past future and others will definately happen in the future.

His companions observed and saw many of his miracles and they spoke about it. like Jesus, like Moses and many other prophets who did miracles. there is mention of prophet Muhammadin the Torah and Gospel

So God EXIST. whether you like it or not HE is there, everywhere.

Now we come to the part your paradise or my paradise

Umar the companion of the Prophet, asked him why don't you let Muslims built palaces like the Romans and persians do, why don't you let them wear ornaments like the Romans and the persians do, the Propht said, these people there Paradise is in this life on Earth, the paradise of the Muslims is in the Hereafter."

What Pophet Muhammad means - that your paradise is short, then HELL for eternity

Muslims life in this life is hell, but their paradise in the hereafter is for Eternity

if you are not worried that Hell is the final abode, then it is ok, but you should not have regrets later on.

I look at it his way, if this life is short and as you say sucks then why I don't expliot this life in worshipping God and He promised me eternity in Paradise, when I die, if I find nothing, then there is nothing, I am not there anymore. but if I find what He promised me then I am happy and I am alive happy for etenity.

If you live this life to the fullest (as short as it is) then you die, if you did not find anything, then you are dead anyway, you are not there anymore, but if there is hereafter, and you were in Eternity HELL, then you will be sad in pain for etenity, then you will regret and say I wish I go back and do good and worship God.
