These elements were mainly meant to regulate the life of people and to establish a law to govern their relations in order to allow everything and everyone to function properly without violating any rights or responsibilities.

It was suitable to send messengers to people to show them the suitable ways to make their existence on earth easy, pleasant, and satisfactory to God. These messages included one single item that could be found unchanged in all of them: the purpose of the existence of human beings.

So, in every message there was an unchanged element telling people "You are here on earth to worship the One True God and to associate no partner with Him." This was clearly explained in all messages.

However, other elements in each message changed according to the details of time and place and the context in general.
