What was all of this universe created for?

One day someone asked the prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h.), 
"What was all of this universe created for? How does it exist?" 
The Prophet answered, "I don't know the answer. I'll have to ask the angel Gabriel." 
So he went and asked Gabriel, who answered, "I don't know the answer to that, I'll have to go ask Allah." 
So Gabriel asked Allah, and then returned and said, "Allah said, 
'I have created the skies and heavens simply as a beautiful sight and an entertainment for you, and to create wonder and awe of My majesty and power. I want the blinking stars to uplift and delight you and cause you marvel at my creation."
