      -Matter didn’t create anti matter
      -Anti matter didn’t create matter
      (Both of them were present at the time of big bang)
      -Both of them didn’t create themselves.
      -Both of them came from an unimaginable source, that unimaginable source created matter and antimatter (everything) thats why it is known as “the creator” of everything.
      —and that unimaginable creator created all prophets (approx 124,000 from Prophet Adam to Prophet Mohammad pbuh) who introduced God/Allah (an unimaginable creator) as well as they came to us with the complete and beautiful guidance of mankind from the creator of mankind.
      Thank u :)

Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away.
                                                                                    There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness. We must have felt what it is to die, Morrel, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.
