According to Shakespeare this world is a stage & we all are artists performing our roles here. With a bit difference I think 'LIFE' ia an 'EXAM' that we all are giving and this world is an Exammination hall. Prophets send by Allah are our teachers provided with holy books to teach us & guide us. Everything in life whether its wealth, health, happiness, any realtion, each & everything is given or taken away from us is our exam. Like if we r been given any resource by Allah then its our exam in a way that how we utilize it, how we use it to help others. Yes Shatan is always there to misguide but thats our main exam to defeat him and make him fail in every of his attempt. Whatever we do here in this world we'll be rewarded and punished for this on the Day of Judgement and sometimes results are been also given here in this world as well.
Well thats my philosophy and what i think of life.
May Allah bless all !!
